FINALLY!!
I finally decided to make a plushie tutorial, for all of you :D
It's really easy, but it takes some time. If you work 1-2 hours a day, it should be finished in 2 days.
Now, for the patterns. The patterns for the body are mostly the same for every plushie (some have bigger heads or have skinnier bodies, but that's easy to edit), but for the hair and clothes, you might encounter some problems. If you need the right patterns for your plushie, I'll be glad to help you :D
M’kay. This is a how-to for the plushie only, not for the clothes. But I’ll add those later, I promise ;D
I hope this will help you!
