Dilfs as furbies
I wonder if the man who sold me my first furby for 15 dollars knew the monster he was creating.
this is a tutorial for furby dungarees! these are suitable for any furby that has doesn’t have it’s ears entirely attached to the body (the straps go trough the ears!), that’s also why i don’t have any exact measurements in this tutorial.
i tried my best to make this tutorial as clear as possible, but if you have any questions, feel free to comment them of message me!
also a disclaimer: i am very new to sewing, and all the techniques. feel free to use other techniques if you think they’ll work better!
for this tutorial you will need:
- any fabric
- needle and thread or sewing machine
- two buttons
- 2 sets of snaps (or buttons if you don’t have snaps)
- your furby
let’s start with the body of the dungarees:
the width of the body is the width of your furby + roughly 2 centimetres,
the fabric should overlap and you need this extra bit of fabric to attach snaps to later on, this is how we will close our dungarees in the back.
you can decide the length of your body, mine cover the entire belly of my furby (from the peets to just below the beak), but you could make it shorter (or longer) to your lliking. make sure to add around 1 cm of extra fabric to each side, we will fold this inside later, for a nice seam.
the body piece will have a gap on both sides, this is where the tail of your furby will poke out. try cutting a small part out of the fabric on both sides first and see how it fits. if the gap needs to be bigger, keep cutting small pieces off until it fits perfectly around the tail. if your furby has manes instead, you can skip this part.
*** i would recommend finishing the body first, before starting the straps***
for the straps, let’s start with the width. i chose a width of 1 cm. but because we will fold the fabric in half, to create a sturdy and smooth strap, the total width of our fabric will be twice your desired width + around 5mm of extra fabric.
so that means mine are 2,5 cm total.
the length of the strap will be a little tricky to measure. with a measuring tape, roughly measure from the spot where you want the straps to start and end. (this might be easier if you make the body first and put it on while measuring). for reference, i included a picture of how the straps should look in the back.
make sure you make the straps longer than needed.
the next step will depend on your fabric: if you have a soft and thin fabric, fold the cut out piece with the wrong side outwards. after stitching along the length with a running stitch you will be able to turn it inside out, this way you won’t be able to see the stitching.
if you have a sturdy fabric like i do, sadly you won’t be able to turn it inside out. you’ll have to fold your piece with the right side outwards, and stitch along the length.
fold the fabric so you can’t see the seam / stitching.
after you’ve cut out the body, fold on the dotted lines and make a crease.
now it’s time to add snaps (or buttons) to the back. (on the image i accidentally wrote studs instead of snaps oops)
this part might be very confusing, so i’ll try my best to explain. lay your fabric down, with the front facing up and unfold it. on the left side, attach one side of the snaps in the same position as in the drawing.
the other side of the snaps have to be attached to the back of the fabric (aka the wrong side). these will go on the part that will be folded over, like shown in the drawing.
after the snaps are attached, fold the fabric again on the crease, and when you close the dungarees with the snaps, it should look like the picture attached further below.
now, it’s time to attach buttons to the front of the dungarees. this is how you’ll be able to put the straps on and take them off.
make a hole in at the end of the straps, and put the buttons trough the holes.
it should look like the picture below.
now put the dungarees on your furby and put the straps trough your furby’s ears. tuck the end of the straps under the body piece, in the place you want and pin them down.
now you can either sew along the red line as shown in the picture below or, attach them to the folded over part. (i chose not to sew along the line as i don’t know how to use a sewing machine and my hand stitching isn’t the neatest.)
add a lil pocket to your dungarees if you want to, and they should be done!
i am not the best at explaining so i’m sorry if this tutorial was messy / hard to follow. feel free to ask any questions you have or leave feedback! if you give this tutorial a try, let me know how yours turned out!
love, jessy, monstertruck and bong water <3
My long friend is finally finished!
I didnt have a real furby to do surgery on so i had to make him from scratch, the face is made out of polymer clay, and his hair is made with brushed out yarn. The rest of him is just old clothes. I made his spine using a lot of wire and then i covered it in fabric so it wouldnt end up poking holes in him, and it wasnt the best spine, but it works for what it is.
He was mostly intended as a test, because i want to try to make another one later, and I wanted to see if the pattern i drew would work well for him.
His name is Raggedy Furbolicious McScraps, but his nickname is Rags, or Raggy.
This was worth spending time on. 10/10 would do it again.
Dont tag as kin/me/id/any kind of sona tag.
I am so in love with him
I had a dream last night where I was in a bathtub surrounded by 2005 furbies.

I put on the furby movie and set up my furbies to watch it with and my mom says “I want you to know this isn’t normal.” Like, bitch, why can’t you just let me enjoy things.
Orange Julius is quite pleased with y’all’s praise. He loves you all.
I’m doing my first custom on Coney and it’s coming out TERRIBLE
Orange Julius is offended that you do not appreciate him. Shame, shame.
He’s here!! He needs a name
