tips for spikey hair? [Mar. 27th, 2010|12:37 am]
The Plush Workshop

Hiya, I'm wondering if any of you wonderful plusie makers had any tips for creating spikey hair out of long fur fabric on a large plushie? 

The character is a lion/ bird character and has a spikey texture on one side of the mane. The spikes need to be fairly rigid so they stand up/out, so simply cutting spikes into the fur isn't enough of an effect, but they don't need to be rock hard. *LOL* don't want to poke my eye out when I hug the darn thing... XD

I'm currently experimenting with glue on a test piece (need to leave over night to dry) but thought I'd ask here in case anyone had some useful techniques/ ideas they would be willing to share :)

Hello all! My name's Christian, I'm pretty much a complete newbie to making plushies. I did make one plushie about a year ago, a little frog sorta thing that I cobbled together because our couch was coming apart and stuffing was going everywhere so...being the helpful person I am...I pulled some out and made a plushie ;D it's since been lost somewhere or another, but now that I have more time, I'd really like to get into plushie making properly.

I need help!Collapse )

Any help would be much, much appreciated =)

I'm glad I found this community :) Making plushies has been a hobby of mine, though I don't do it as often as I would like now.

Here are a few of my characters I made. The first one was a commission for one of my art teachers and the other was one I made for etsy, but of course no one bought.

A slightly unusual commission, but a fun one. Although this was started and the fabric cut a loooooooooooooooooong time ago, before being put on hold, I'd totally do the pattern differently now. :P

Oh Hai!

I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but I'm hoping someone knows something!!

I've recently acquired some old, antique, Steiff stuffed animals. My grandma had been collecting them since she was little and she just gave them all to me as Christmas presents. Many of them used to belong to my father and uncles when they were little, and a couple of them are even older than that. They are most all mohair teddy bears and the like in very good condition; they still have the trademark button in the ear and everything. I'm curious about ways I might be able to store them with minimum or no damage? I live in Northern New Mexico and there is a lot of dust here. I'd love to keep these plush animals out to display but I'm concerned about doing that. :/ My dogs, for one, would happily chew these beautiful antiques to shreds.

Just 'finished' this little guy. I've put over a year into this pattern and I'm getting close to feeling that it's finally DONE.



I fixed the joints and gave the face more dimension. I'm really, really happy how it's turned out :)

If I were to sell the pattern, would any of you buy it? I'm thinking about US$10-15 for a digital copy of the template itself and instructions. Sound about right?
