Make your own plushie action figures!
Here is how I made both a Darth Vader and a Donatello plushie. This basic body shape can easily be decorated to become any character you want.
This a fun little intermediate sewing project. I hope you'll make your own plushie Darth Vader, Donatello, or whatever you want. Enjoy!
I've included a pattern for the basic body shape I used for both Darth Vader and Donatello.
Constructing the body will require both machine sewing and hand stitching. Someone with a little bit of sewing experience may need to help beginners, as parts of this may be slightly difficult or frustrating.
I decided to make the pattern so the head and body pieces are made and stuffed separately. That way, when they are stitched together a definite neck shape is created.
Start by downloading, printing, and cutting out the body pattern. (The body is on two sheets, which will need to be taped together.)
