I want to make a larger Drifloon, so I was wondering if you could make a larger scale pattern?

Plush-Lore Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
my tip for making your own would just make larger shapes of those. i suggest to have some trial and error

okay so he is striped and has kinda like a slug ish body. if you don't mind i will put up a basic sketch of the patter on you page. and from there you can edit it to look more like yours.

Aww this is cute! I like how you do the Floon ruffle (or whatever the zig zag part is called!)-- I hadn't thought of doing it that way :)

welcome to plushie making!! i am so glad you are interested! i am here to help with anything and everything.
in picture 5 i sewed the tear oval shapes together in pairs then in pic 6 i took those two pairs and put the out sides facing in (the out sides are the side that does not show the seem you sewed) then sewed them together leaving a small space not sewn so after you can turn it inside out.

Plush-Lore Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
no no its okay XD. well after i pinned it all together like it show i sewed around the outer rim of the circle (which is the 2 pieces that i just sewed together then put together out side facing in) and then left a small gap from where i started and where i finished so i can turn it inside out. then after that i tuned it inside out and stuffed it so it became a ball.

hope i describe the right part

This is super awesome!
See, I made a Drifloon a couple of years, and I thought it was OK. But his puff atop his head....was absolutely horrid. But now that I see how you do it....my future Drifloons will look so much better!
I definitely will try this out in the near future!

I'll try to get my hands started on it soon (I have to make two cosplay costumes for an upcoming Con, so I'm trying to stay away from plushie making right now), but I'll send you a link when it's done!

krystalfan-2 Featured By Owner May 2, 2013  Student Artisan Crafter
What a coincidence XD
It's more of a fest than a con (my bad). It's named Otafest, a gathering to celebrate the Japanese pop culture (anime, manga, video games, etc). It's during the May long weekend where I live, and I'm super excited!
Are you going to a con yourself?

I'll be going as Shadow Link from the Four Sword Manga, and the other costume (for my brother) is going to be a Magikarp.
Sounds like fun! Who will you be?

Really cute (:

Did you use a sewing machine for the head/ball or did you hand sew it? If you hand sewed, what stitch did you use?
Reply
:iconplush-lore:
Plush-Lore Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
i used a sewing machine for this one but i have made ones before that i sewed by hand and it came out just as good! i use half back stitch when sewing the body. its stronger that way.

i hope you make one ^w^ and if you are making one i would love to see how it comes out >w<
