When sewing a tiger, you can use any material (except, perhaps, fur). We sew first the body of two cut parts. I will repeat that I do it manually.
Then we turn it out, stuff it, sew the hole left for these purposes.
Sew the ears, turn them out and sew them with a secret suture to the head.
Then we embroider a muzzle. The overlay on a muzzle (from a fleece) I have simply pasted. You can make a tiger and a white tummy (I sewn a white circle of fleece)!
And do not forget to sew a tiger's tail!
Well, of course, our tiger should be striped! Stripes can be sewed with threads on an orange coat, you can draw a marker for the fabric, and for lack of it - acrylic paints a thin brush (like me).
