Just to toss out another idea:  Smiley

When I started making my dolls, I cut a gingerbread-man shape out of a manila folder. (Well, gingerbread-man with an actual torso, but.) Then I made the first doll-body, and once it was stuffed and all, I traced around it (leaving some space) on another manila folder to get a "jumpsuit" pattern. (The jumpsuit can be modified into shirts, pants, skirts, bustiers, vests, whatever really easily, and this way I only need to hang onto one extra pattern.) If you're using felt for the material, two standard felt squares should handle the body of a good-sized doll, and up to a square for clothing (unless it's a jumpsuit or dress, then two squares).

My hair is just yarn backstitched onto the head, although I'm thinking of trying UFO-catcher-style felt hair sometime. (Main trick when doing yarn hair: make sure you use long pieces, and trim it down later. It's a lot easier than trying to get exactly the right length from the start.)

Good luck with your dolls!  Smiley

Thank you. That sounds very easy!  Now I just need to go to a crafts store ;P Thanks, I need all the luck I can get.

I decided to make a plush doll for my best friend as a birthday present. Thing is, I have no idea where to start. Here is an example of what I want to do:

I want to make a doll of Ryan Ross from Panic! at the disco. Specifically, this picture, with the rose vest.

Questions:
-Where would I start? Do I need a pattern? Is there a pattern for making plush dolls?
-How would I go about making his hair? His clothes?

Any and all help is very much appreciated. You guys have no idea how much this will mean to her.

Thanks =P

A- I have no idea what I'm going to use, like I said, I'm a newbie to this! I think I'll save that one for when I get more advanced  Wink

B- What are floaters? And couldn't I use cardstock, or would that not work?

Thank you so much! That was exactly what I was asking. I have another question though. How do I cut out all the tiny little details (like the tatoos on his arm)?

Thanks!

Quick questions:

This is my first time stenciling (yay for newbies!), and I have a couple of questions.

-How would you go about cutting out the following stencils? Which parts do I cut out?

Do I have to carefully cut out his tatoos as well? Not the best for a beginner like me?  Huh

What about these?

I read a tutorial that confused the crap out of me, so I'm sorry if this is a stupid question =)

Last question: fabric markers instead of fabric paint? I want to use them on a shirt with one of the stencils above. Will it look unprofessional?

Thanks a bunch!  Tongue
