Chebeto Mini Cthulhu Plush Sewing Kit Review

Having been a longtime fan of Chebeto’s adorable style of plushes, I was beyond thrilled when they sent over one of their new mini DIY plush kits for me to try out and share the results

Chebeto Mini Cthulhu Plush Kit

The Mini Cthulhu kit comes packaged quite nicely with nearly all of the supplies you will need to make the plush, down to needle, thread, and sewing pins. The only items you will have to supply yourself are common household items: scissors, tape, a pen or marker for tracing, and a stuffing stick or chopstick.

I was very happy to see that the instructions were thorough, with plenty of step-by-step photos, explanations, and diagrams. This made the process easy and painless. All the little details were thought of, down to including the cutting instructions on each pattern piece so you always know what you’re doing.

I was very pleased with quality of materials, as well as the generous amount included in the kit! There is more than enough felt and thread to allow for any minor mistakes you might make, so there is no anxiety about messing up and wasting precious supply.

The little details seemed to take the longest because I am an impatient person when it comes to sewing, but once I finished with those, little Cthulhu came together quite quickly!

Constructing the plush was very simple using the instructions.

Of course, the most exciting part was joining everything together and being able to put the stuffing in. As with the thread and felt, there was a happy amount of fiber fill so that Cthulhu would be satisfactorily stuffed!

Sometimes a kit can be disappointing in that your final result looks nothing like it’s supposed to – personally, I have several needle felt kits that come to mind – but thanks to proper supplies and directions, I was able to make something that actually looks like it’s supposed to!

Where to buy

After my experience, I can’t recommend Chebeto’s sewing kits enough. If you’d like to try this Cthulhu kit out for yourself, you can find it on Etsy, and be sure to take a look through the rest of their DIY sewing kits to see the rest of the range. There’s even an axolotl kit (that I really need)! The kits range between $14 and $22.

Chebeto also conveniently sell a huge variety of digital plush patterns for just $8, including the pattern for the Mini Cthulhu plush featured today. This is a great option if you’d like to get creative with your own materials.
