Hello all! I'm pretty new to this place and have been lurking around reading a lot of interesting posts and checking out peoples creations. Loving it here so far.
I'm pretty new to sewing in general and have been having a lot of fun teaching myself how to sew and how to make plushies. I've been working on drafting my own pattern for soft and super cuddly animal plushies and thought I would share my progress so far.
I wanted the plush to be cuddly but artistic and pretty at the same time so this is my latest bunny plush I've made, with my own pattern. I still have a lot of work to do on the pattern and changes I want to make. I am interested in hearing some feedback or maybe advice on how to improve?
I used a 5mm pile minky like fabric for the plush with a satin brocade accent on the tummy, ears and paws (phew brocade is pretty but difficult to work with!). The bows I made with just a wide ribbon by adding a cherry blossom flower accent in the middle of the bow and attaching a long sheer ribbon that curled down the ears.
I need to practice with sewing the pads on the bottom of the paws, I did my best but see the need for practice there!
Thanks for the feedback guys and gals.
I'm excited to settle into a crafting community!
