Just used the tutorial! Eagerly awaiting part three. What sorts of shapes would you suggest for big fluffy tails?

this is very very helpful, thank you. i made a horse plushie a little while ago from a pattern i found online... it kind of failed, and now i know why. i was looking for a new pattern for future plushies, and thanks to this i can make my own :D so thank you. do you have any tips for patterns for the plushie's heads?

If I have a more detailed character, with both large and small markings, how do I suggest I go about adding those on? For example, I'd be interested in making a plushie of fav.me/d7u063p . How would I go about adding the markings? I don't think paint would be a very good idea, since it would ruin the feel of the fabric /:

Also, do you plan on making a third part to this tutorial for making heads? I really want to make plushies of my OCs and but I don't know how I'd go about making the head in proportion the same way you do.

Last question(s), how would I do the hair and mane? I have no idea how I'd do that xD
The tail, too. since it's a thinner tail with the end, would I still sew it normally? I know I'd need to put a wire in there if I want it to keep the shape. I've done a few plushies before, so I'll need practice before making a full-out character, but I'd love to make some of my own and even maybe sell some if I get good enough ovo

Would you be able to make a video on this? My brain can't seem to get around the concepts of making the underbelly by tracing...

Even if it is just a quick on shot with a web cam or phone cam, I'd much appreciate it! I am trying to make a functional bulbasaur plush whose bulb doubles as a bag.

I am sorry I am in the middle of prepping for a convention so I have no time. My only suggestion for the time being is reread over the first tutorial I explain each step.

also try it out with scrap fabric if you can.

how would you sow a different color onto the black, say umbreons markings, and keeping the same effect as when the colors meet on a shinx, so it just 'blends' together without a seam?

well i know people that sew it into the patter such that they cut a hole to put it in. but what i do is i sew them on top of the already made plush like a detail.

I just wanted to say that i really appreciate the time and effort you put into making this for everyone. I've always wanted to make a standing plush but could never really understand the dynamics of things, how they worked, how to make the patterns, etc. But this really cleared things up for me, as I'm sure it did for many others. Thanks again!! I really appreciate it and look forward to your next tutorial! c:

Thank you again ^^ This also helps me see that maybe I should start off with something small and simple instead of going for a bunch of detail on my first few attempts. I may make a chibi of a wolf I've been wanting to make first before going for the larger size. Have you ever heard of Fenrir from Final Fantasy XI? I want to make him for a friend but understanding some of its form is helpful. The paws and pointy fur parts scare me away from it but maybe I should try to simplify it first to get comfortable.

Thank you so much for making this tutorial! I have been trying to draft my own for some time but could never get the belly gussets right; this makes it so much easier! One thinng I was wondering is that I like my plush floppy so I would make the haunches (back legs) more separate from the body to allow for that range of motion. However I haven't quite gotten that to work yet. ^^; I do have some plush I already own that have this design so I guess I should just take a closer look at how they wre are put together.

Plush-Lore Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
i am glad to hear this has helped you!

 i would say you get the right idea making them more separated will add that extra movement along with making the dip of the inner leg more shallow would help that too.

:icongreyscalerainbowxx:
GreyscaleRainbowXx Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes! Thank you! :) I will definitely be experimenting with this, I also just tried drafting patterns by sculpting what I want it to look like and the general size of the plush out of newspapers plastic wrap and masking tape and drawing the seams on, cutting it with my exacto and adding darts. So we'll see if this method actually works in transferring it to fabric. -fingerscrossed- I'll most likely use this method for the more oddly shaped ones that are harder to wrap my head around on paper.
