Okay recently I have become obsessed with plushies/ softies/soft toys what ever you want to call them.
The swap idea - make a Pinterest board of all the plushies/ softies you would love to have and your partner will choose from your board.
The twist is that they MUST be character plushies/softies.( eg - tv characters, cartoon characters, movies, book characters etc) get the jist!
It will be up to the maker what size etc., with communication to your partners tastes.
I think something like this was done maybe a year ago but I think it's time to do it again, plus I missed out.
Anyone want in? Probably mid August.

I'd be interested too.  Maybe making it a character could be an option?  I love all kinds of stuffed animals, plushies, soft toys.  I also collect them.  Making stuffed animals is what I'm best at.  I'm sure there are some people who are looking for a certain kind of animal, not necessarily a character.

Are they all sewn? Can they be crocheted?

I could put the option if people would like a crocheted one, but you must be willing and able to sew as well, as I really want the theme to stay plushie/softie- in fabrics and furs etc.
Also the reason why I thought of this is because of the characters we could create, so I won't be changing that. Other swaps for animals and such I'm sure will come up in the future.
On that note, someone might like My little Pony, so that's an animal, or what about in Adventure time, there is also a pony type animal in that as well. Maybe someone loves The Flintstones Dino( dinosaur) or Donkey from shrek, Ghost from game of thrones, as you can see there maybe a lot of opportunities to sew an animal character!
So I hope you join Gotgrey....

Oooh this sounds fun!! Plushies are my favorite thing to sew - I actually have a list of about 50 character plushies I wanted to make (list actually needs to be expanded now) so this would knock at least one off the list!

If possible, September would work much better for me (school starts up at the end of August so it'll be a bit hectic around here)

Cruising deviantart, I saw a Furret plushie and a Hounddoom plushie.  Would LOVE to make either one of those, or maybe, even a Sven/"Frozen" reindeer plushie!

At first I wasn't convinced I was interested in a character plushie per se, but then I started thinking about it and realized there are SO MANY AWESOME CHARACTERS!

So... YES!  Count me in!!!

I LOVE Sven, from, "Frozen".  I still need to see that movie.  I LOVE Bambi, and Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, the dragon from,"Spirited Away".  The dragon from, "The Never Ending Story", Toothless from,"How to Train Your Dragon", the unicorn from,"The Last Unicorn".  Gosh, I bet I could think of a whole lot more if I just sat down and really thought about it.   Grin

I do like this idea of a character plushie .  The wolf in Red Riding Hood,  the Wizard of Oz the lion, Donald Duck,  Sylvester the cat & Tweedy Bird, Tom cat & Jerry & the little one can't remember his name, the mice,  I'm thinking more of the old ones. Yogi Bear & his side kick can't remember that either. Smokey the Bear. Howdy Dowdy clown, the dwarfs in Sleeping Beauty & the horse, also the fairys! Well there's a few of the older ones. I'm sure there are a lot more. This is getting me excited!! HE, HE

Yogi's sidekick was BooBoo Sharalee.  Yes, there are the Hanna Barbera characters.  Betty Boop, Hello Kitty.  I was thinking about the bear from a series of books that are out right now.  The name of the bear, is simply bear.  I just got a stuffed animal pattern that would work well for him.  The raccoons from, "The Kissing Hand",  the raccoon from, "Rascal", the swans from, "The Trumpet of the Swan", Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and The Beast, all the princess' from all the recent animated movies, guy characters, All Dogs Go to Heaven, An American Tail, all the claymation movies from the 60's, Skippy Jon Jones, Eric Carle, Dr. Seuss.

Bumping this up.  I wouldn't mind stitching up a stuffie.  I may not be able to come up with an unusual theme, but I could probably manage to do some basic stuffies and alter them to accommodate the themes/tastes of my partner.

I'm techy-challanged so I would not be able to organize.  I'm just glad I can do my email and post on forums.  I even have to have my daughter post my pictures, I'm embarrassed to say.

Me too, techy-challanged!  I'm not a good organizer. So I could make a plushie pretty easy & change it a bit to match my partner's request. That'd be fun kind of makiing my own pattern. I love making my own patterns,  almost as fun as making it!  He He!
