I was surprised how many people were interested in my plush patterns and how I make them. So I put together a simple tutorial on what I do. Sorry I don't have all the pictures, I will probably upload more on my website.

Anyways, here is my tutorial for all those who asked! Cheesy I am linking it to my website because it is a fairly long file. Just click the link and then on the image tutorial so it will be the actual size and readable. Sorry some of the images are inconsistent, I tried to include many different types not the same ones. My cameras batteries also died in the process Sad I forget while working to take progress shots, so I apologize for that. I tried to include as many patterns I have created/ sketches as I could!

Tutorial- http://www.tylonproducts.com/?p=305

I hope you like! If theres anything else you would like me to include, feel free to ask! Cheesy


Now- as far as new plush. I have a few more. >_< here I go again spamming the community with my critters. I also wish I had a lightbox, because I really have nowhere to take good pictures of my plush without active backgrounds. :/


Alright, so here is my Honeybee- dedicated also to my DA group for raising awareness for saving the bees! Im trying to talk my dad into getting us a beehive, so far they all think I am crazy. I actually made a prototype design for the bee, not sure if anyone is interested in seeing that. I usually upload work to my website, so... It should become populated there eventually.



Then is my ocean sunfish. For some reason this guy is so simple, but he's so soft... and cute! I'm thinking of giving him to my little cousin. Smiley



and last off- a dab. Originally I was referencing an olive flounder, and realized that the way I sewed it already made it into a dab with the eye positions. Either way, I think he's... adorable. I only had two colors of the big big eyes, so I thought these fit nicely. Smiley



Thank you all again with your support! Cheesy If there are any other tutorials and such you would like, feel free to ask! Smiley

Heh I know! Same here. For my dab I just cut out two pieces and started sewing. But Im trying to use them more and develop them, but then i forget and just... cut.

Maybe instead I should just take a picture of the pieces I cut, and make a pattern from that. Hmmm... that could work!
