Hi all!
This is my first project to be posted on Crafster, after much reading and enjoying,...

http://www.gepo.info/_pages/images/stuffed_monsters.jpg

These are some stuffed felt monster I made a short time ago, they're all different because I was experimenting different techniques and tricks with each one.

The simpler one are basically two pieces of felt, machine sewn toghether, turned inside out, stuffed with something called syntetic cotton (I don't know the exact name in english), then embroidered and decorated and finally closed sewing by hand. I guess it could make sense to embroider before stuffing them, but I just found it easier that way!

The more complex ones (like the rabbit in the back) have many more pieces and I really had to think hard to figure out how it would work once it was turned inside out!

I can try to make a tutorial next time I make one if anyone's interested. Let me know!

Nina

Hey, thanks! I used embroidery thread (brown, blue and black or metallic, which I didn't like much) for most of them. And I used felt and thread for those with the BIG eyes.

these are rad. i'm currently working on stuff toys based on characters from my comics. i was thinking of screenprinting the faces on, but the embroidery you did looks really sharp. how thick is the thread that you used for it?

Mmmm... I tried embroidering in different ways. I think the best result came with DMC embroidery floss, using only four of the six strands. Using all of them became very bulky. I used what I think is called a backstitch (very basic handstitch).

I'll make one more next weekend and I'll post a tutorial. Promise! Smiley
