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 . 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.
