    • Look for seams in the microbead plush that you can tear to remove its contents.

    • Using a seam ripper, make a hole the size of your thumb.

    • You can enlarge the hole if needed.

    • Make sure that you follow the seam when you make the hole.

    • Dump out the contents of the plush into a large container using that hole you made.

    • Make sure not to let the plush touch the beads. They will stick to the plush.

    • Fold the inside-out casing in half.

    • Place it on a piece of fabric folded into fourths. The loose ends of the fabric should be facing you.

    • Trace the outline of the casing with a marker.

    • Use scissors to cut out the outline of the plush.

    • You may use safety pins on the inside of the outline so the fabric doesn't slip.

    • You can use the casing as a guide if you're unsure with your outline.

    • Measure about 20 times the length of the plush in thread.

    • Push the thread through the eye of the needle until both sides of the needle have an equal amount of thread.

    • Check out Repairing a Stuffed Teddy if you're unsure how to thread a needle.

    • Create a small loop using the loose ends, leaving about 2 centimeters to wrap around the base of the loop. Push the excess through the loop to create a knot.

    • Unfold the material keeping both outline sheets together.

    • This will create a bag for the microbeads to go in.

    • After unfolding, use a different color marker to note where the hole made in step one is on your plush.

    • Do not close this hole as this is the refilling point.

    • Start stitching along the edge of the outlines, weaving the needle every centimeter to close any gaps.

    • Stuff the bag into the plush, leaving the openings together.

    • Sew the edges of the openings onto the plush to prevent the bag from slipping when refilling.

    • Insert the funnel in the opening and begin refiling the plush.

    • Refill the plush slowly using a cup to avoid spilling the microbeads over the plush.

    • After closing the opening press down on the plush to spread around the microbeads.

Conclusão

With those final stitches, your microbead plush shouldn’t spill anymore.
