Basic Plush Tutorial Part 2 by Almiras Basic Plush Tutorial Part 2 by Almiras
A basic plushie making tutorial! Use this tutorial to learn how to create a basic pattern, cut it out, stitch, stuff and finish.

Part 2 - This shows you how to apply your pattern to fabric and cut out correctly and as accurate as possible :) for this plush I have chosen orange fleece for the top, and cream fleece for the underside/belly.

If your confused about the selotape/clear tape I use to hold to pattern to the fabric - this is what I do for all my projects. It keeps the paper pattern in place and dosent slip about which allows you to get an accurate shape when cutting. I tried using pins for pattern but it is much harder for me, as I find the pattern can slip and tear!

This is lovely, you've made everything so clear! And my Mum was very amused by the lizard cutout... :giggle: It's because on Maddy's micro chip record there's a picture of a dog lying flat on the floor, with an 'x' over the micro chip site... it looks a lot like the splatty lizard shape. :XD: So cute.

Why did I never think of taping the pattern down :iconfacepalmplz: really i've been holding it down with pins and such and it doesn't work that well. glad I decided to look at this tutorial now xD

^___^ glad my tape method will be of help, I was always told to use pins for this sort of thing (when I did textiles at school years ago) but I found that the pattern shifted around too much :/ tape is much easier :D

Indeed. from experience it does shift a lot, sometimes you end up screwing up the pattern :x
