Thank you so much for the supporting words that anyone can learn to do this, I have a bad track record of wanting to learn things and then giving up because "I'm too old to learn"
i have touched a thread before xD
i once tried to make a pony cube which ended decently ( picture below )
i also made the cubes for some other OC's of mine but never finshed them ( i think i should )
( first is human second and third dog like and the last dragoneque xD )
but yeah this was a good read i learned something from this ouo
all tho i havent done embroidering before i can do felt eyes/cutie mark
and if i may ask do you know a good pony sewing pattern ?
i think i can fiddle around with the legs since my oc has the hooves in view ( like big mac )
and he has a female head so if you know a good male/female sewing pattern please show me XD
i have seen a lot of them and not all make sense or the end result doenst look how i thought it would ( some have pictures that show the end result )
Love your approach, your point of view, your words... You love what you do, and you want to share this love with us... Thank you!!!
Anyway, I think this guide will help save me a couple ounces of blood and tears. Adding you to my watch so I can keep seeing more adorable plushies
Thanks for your help though and getting back to me so fast
Also one other thing and I promise I'll leave you alone lol! I use knots from my ladder stitches and they are VERY visible. Any tricks for hiding them? Or different knots? I've been using french knots for the top stitched details, but I don't think I can do that :/
I've no idea if it'll be of use but I fave it anyway so I do not loose it.
What is the hardest to make plush you've done until today?
Or maybe I just didn't see any yet...
Though it is RARE to see a craft shop fully furnished...
I even buy yarns online...
I can relate to the beginning of your story, I'm currently studying economy and the likes as well, nothing that has to do with making plushies. And I had a scary mean teacher that one time everybody had to take sewing classes at school, many years ago! So I got a distance from that topic. But I still love and appreciate good looking plushies. I swear those unique ones from practiced plushie makers always look better than those mass-produced plushies in stores. I'm a nit-pick like that. It became one of the reasons why I thought about making the plushies myself (I REALLY want to have a medium-sized Donphan one day).
I'll save this file! So I can read it and follow it step by step as soon as I feel brave enough to make this new kind of art. C:
Now I have set up a sewing room and am now practicing the basic stitching process.
I hope to one day have adorable plushies that I can look at with satisfaction and say "I made that"
This has inspired me to do so much more than just 'make plushies,' but to embrace the fact that it is hard work, but satisfying.
Thank you tons for this guide!
