This is a little help on how to turn a normal plush you can find at a thrift store or just have into a cutom!
Some of us would like to be able to make custom plush toys, but you lack the fabric, patterns, designs, or talent to make them. Well, I have a solution that everybody can afford and manage: Make them out of other plush dolls!
Supplies you will need:
1. Sewing needle.
3. Fabric markers.
5. If necessary, fabric. (Hobby Lobby is a good place to buy)
6. An old plush.
7. character ref (make sure your base is the same animals or close)
8. Old gift card (I cut out the shade, cover it with paper and use this as the eyes)
9. Markers of all colors (eye color)
10. White fur (for fills)
11. All purpose house hold glue/cement (for those who don't sew well, this should not be used for everything!)
NOTE: You will also need to make sure your lines for fur patterns and markings are VERY neat!!!!
-Make sure you have EVERYTHING mapped out or you might possibly ruin your plush.
-Make sure you never make too big of a change, practice on a smaller character before you do a really big one.
-You shouldn't your expectations too high on your first plush, mistakes can happen.
How to color you plush
Take your fabric maker and slowly start adding color to your plush. white and grey plushes are best for coloring on.
How to do the eyes!
First before adding or gluing on the eyes, make sure they look good! As you can see, not all of my plushes have cartoon eyes. That's because some plushes look better with normal and realistic eyes.
step 1. Cut out your eyes.
step 2. Grab a piece of paper and trace your eyes onto it. Once you've done that, cut them out and stick it to your piece.
step 3. Draw your eyes onto the piece (make sure you color it BEFORE adding the pupil), then leave 1-2 white spots in the eye when coloring.
step 4. Before gluing the eyes on, hold them up to the plush and see how they look first. If you're happy with the results, grab your glue and glue them over top of the existing eyes. Let it dry for awhile (24hrs) and you're good to go!
