"For those who don't like it, eat a d*ck. But for those who with me, SEW that sh*t."
So you find yourself with a lovely girlfriend, but you live 236 miles away? Make her a plush friend to hold in your stead!
This isn't particularly hard to make, either. Just requires patience and time. If you hand-sew it for some dumb reason (like I did), then you can expect this to take at least 20+ hours. With a sewing machine, I imagine the process will be much faster.
You can make this with minimal sewing knowledge (basic sewing, making knots, tucking in/hiding knots, closing an opening) and relatively low costs (fabric, thread, and any sewing supplies you may need to buy).
Step 1: Design & Prepare.
One very important thing to consider when you're designing your doll is that the entire doll has to be flipped inside out during its creation, so make sure you don't have any parts that will be impossible to flip. (For instance, the arms in this design was almost too large on the end.) On the other hand, it IS fabric so you do get some allowance with size.
- Marker/something to mark the fabric
- Fabric glue
- Two kinds of fabric (try to pick contrasting colors for visual impact etc.)
- Felt (for facial parts)
- Filling (fiberfill, old shirts, your annoying cat that won't stop messing with your project)
Optional Tools and Materials:
- Cardboard (for a pattern)
And of course, lots of free time.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE NECESSARY TOOLS & MATERIALS . (Hopefully that seems obvious to you)
