Where did you learn to do plushes like that? All the ones I've seen on Craftster were too cool, so I had to try it. The 2D stuff I found to be really easy - but I'm not familiar enough with sewing to have a good grasp of how you can just think up a complicated 3D shape and then translate it into fabric and stuffing. I'm hoping you have some tips for the rest of us!

And I love Nessie, by the way. I've always been fascinated with Loch Ness, and you did a fantastic job with her!

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

Thanks!  Cheesy

Well, it's kinda hard to explain, but I'll try my best. I was influenced by maddiekins' whale tutorial and the way she made a gusset for her plush. I basically use the same method by drawing the profile view of what I want, except I only measure certain parts of the flat image with the yarn. Like so marked in the red:



and then I make a gusset piece with whatever width I want. The fatter I want a plush, the wider, and vice versa. If you don't want the width to stay the same throughout, then you can taper the width off at the ends. A helpful hint when making the pattern piece is to fold the gusset strip in half lengthwise and then fold it in half widthwise and then taper off the width. This ensures uniformity throughout, unless you want one end wider than the other.

There's other methods of more complicated gussets like the ones you see on teddy bear faces.... I have yet to use those. It's all a matter of experimenting and playing around with measurements!  Cheesy If you have any more questions, feel free to PM me! I am by no means experienced at making plushes and there are lots of other tutorials that are more helpful than I!  Smiley
