I figured I wanted some opinions on him before I added the clothes XD. (you can read more/ MORE PICS on my blog entry- http://www.blog.tylonproducts.com/?p=80 )



I found this awesome tutorial and pattern on DA- http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&global=1&q=sit+tutorial#/d1ija2o

I used the pattern and sort of added my own touch, of course! Smiley

Anyways, this is Skyler Chase, one of my original characters and probably my favorite one. Smiley This is just a WIP, have a bit more to edit with his hair and well of course, he needs clothes! XD Got to make him his white tank, navy blue hoodie, and his ripped jeans.


I guess I'm just looking for opinions and feedback, or if anyone has any idea how to make hats? Or ripped jeans? or hoodies/ sweatshirts? LOL. Figured I would just ask. hah.

Thank you!

First, he is *adorable* !!

I usually drape fabric and pin & trim to make clothes patterns for my plushies, but if you want some tutorials for clothes, 'ashfantastic' has a lot of tutorials here; http://ashfantastic.deviantart.com/gallery/188684

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Thank you so much for sharing this project! I used the pattern to make a gift for a friend and your beautiful, little doll was such an inspiration. Also, thanks for the link to the tutorial!

As for clothes, I outlined the pattern pieces and then added about 1/4" ease to make pants and a shirt. I think you could even add 1/2" and be happy because my doll's clothes were pretty tight. The real problem that I had was getting something over the doll's head that that wasn't huge around the neck. I ended up sewing the clothes onto him. Also, if you're thinking about making pants, I discovered that a hair tie is the perfect circumference for an elastic waistband.
