jenna m: id use a pattern you liked and alter it a little to fit what you want it to look like! i usually do that when i want it to look real good and it helps a lot!
Use whip-stitch and felt.
when you stuff it, think about how you want it weighted. I made a little squirrel that I wanted sitting up, so I put beans and loads of tight stuffing in his bum bum and stuffed his head and tail quite loosely.
Hey thanks guys!! Those tips are very helpful. So hopefully by the time this swap comes to be, my plushies will no longer have so much, um.... EXTRA.... character.
Re: weird faces- nup! i aint saying anything Roma, I'm sure I'll love what you've given me! lol
weird was probably the wrong word! LOL I'll show my partner examples of what I want anyway.
list of who is all aboard on the plushie train
Jenna M.- Sc, Us
sweet huh? doing good, yep yep!
Shivs- do you mean these things:
they terrify me too and I definitely don't want one of them ever please.
aw thats cute! how can that be scary? i do prefer something a little more gothy though
omg that is so cute, but would not have the patience to make one lol
They're horrific! You guys are WEIRD.
This is cute:
everything else pales in comparison.
that doll kind of looks like it has a hangover....creepy
yeah the previous doll is weird, it looks drugged and don't get me started on the ears!
it makes me think of a stoned fairy... haha i dont mind either so whatever
lol anything that looks weird looks cute to me! ...my husband says that I need to stop populating the world with the "practice" plushies...o.O i didnt think I was making that many...I am just experimenting with different kinda of facial expressions, matterial, hair or no hair and so on and so on lol.
hmm we need at least one more sign up to make it even, if not one of us will have two partners, which I dont mind making plushies for two ppl...**glances back at the endless pile of fabrics near her sewing machine** lol
When I've done swaps in the past with an odd number of people I've done a three.
Ben, Jemima and Sarah
Ben sends to Jemima
Jemima sends to Sarah
Sarah sents to Ben
So you only have to make one plushie and you only get one plushie each?
