This is the first stuffed animal I've ever made. I hand stitched it all because working with fur on a sewing machine made me want to break
something. He's got weighted feet, 5 doll joints and little bells in his paws. I got the pattern from the freebies section of http://www.bearycheap.com/
. I think I'd like to try my hand at designing one that's a bit more grotesque like the ones found at http://www.patriciawaller.com/en/images.html
. Does anyone have any advice for a novice? I was thinking about using Blender (http://www.blender.org/
) and then unfolding the surfaces to create a pattern.
