First, I used a ruler to make a template. Robots are pretty easy because you really don't need any curves.
I gave myself a one inch allowance all the way around the robot. Then I pinned the template to the fabric. I cut out two pieces.
Next, I cut a hole in the middle of the belly of my robot on one piece of the fabric.
I hand sewed the piece of vinyl to the belly of the robot to keep the vinyl in place.
I pinned the two pieces of fabric together.
Then I ran the fabric through the sewing machine. I also sewed the vinyl on three sides leaving the top open.
Here is what the seams looked like before I trimmed it up.After this I trimmed off the excess and turned the robot inside out.
Then I put some little bells, car buttons, and dinosaurs in the robot belly along with some bean bag beads. Then I sewed up the belly. After that I filled up the rest of the robot with beans. I finished him off by sewing shut the head and I used embroidery floss to make some eyes and a mouth.
Tada! An I Spy Robot for my special Little Bit.
