I used a fantastic technique to take a shape off of a toy to create a 3 dimensional plushie. I will attempt to show you how I did this. This technique works really well, is really inexpensive and turns out so neat!
Step 1: Supplies
- A toy to build off of preferably one you don't mind wrecking.
- masking tape cut into thin strips
- fine tip marker
- sharp exacto blade
- dark or not white paper
- use of a scanner/ photocopier with ability to blow things up ( Hahaha.. Wouldn't that be crazy!) bigger
- Quilting ruler (clear ruler) or just a ruler.
- 2 yards of fabric ( I used a grey velour and I also did this with a faux black leather)
- Thread to match fabric colour
- Glue Gun
- Cardboard, or cardstock, or even a piece of wood. ( to close the back up with)
- a wooden plaque from the dollar store, or (if you are more savvy and have access, cut a shape out of wood and router the edge cause that's really all the dollar store plaque is.)
- Paint ( to paint the plaque) - I used black for the rhino of faux leather and brown for the rhino with grey velour
- a screw eye
