2013 is the year of the snake. So here comes an easy DIY project for a big snake plushie. You need a knitted scarf and a rectangular piece of fabric in the same size for the inner cushion. Just fold the scarf double and close the seam on the long side. I have turned the sides of the scarf into half circles and closed the seams like that. If you want to wash the outer shell separately it makes sense to have a zipper in the long seam. Follow the same steps for the inner cushion but leave a small part of the long seam open for the filling. You can use either soft cushion filling (buy a few cheap cushions from IKEA) or beanbag pearls. Decorate the outer shell with big buttons for the eyes.
I'm a German expat based in Hong Kong since March 2007. I love interior design, crafting, food, yoga, hiking, travelling, arts and painting and browsing through magazines in the sun shine or on my sofa. This is my home and living blog. Home means my husband, my daughter and my twin boys. I put my little DIY projects here and all the other things that cross my daily life. Enjoy!
