Okay so I took the advice of some members here and decided to start "small" (Figuratively), and go with a simpler projects... So I decided to make sketches of what I'd like to make so far.... Now all of these would be relatively large in size. I don't like small stuffed animals for some odd reason. SO minimum over all height would be 20inches. Preferably 34inches.

I'll be posting some pictures soon.

Could anyone please direct me to some good online stores that sell fabrics, and supplies like button eyes and such? I'm looking for good quality but not like over the top expensive. I've seen some fabrics go for 40dollars per yard. Kinda crazy because five years ago when I used to have a fabric store near the stuff went for like 5 dollars to 12 dollars a yard and the MOST would be 15 and 20 (20 if it was over the top quality). I feel like 40 dollars is a rip off because when I go onto etsy and see sellers selling stuffed animals with high quality fur for a lesser price than that it kinda makes me wonder-- how do they even make the money they lost?

Not saying what I'm going to do is going to be sold. But saying it just doesn't add up. Please and thank you.

I get eyes and noses from www.glasseyesonline.com
Fabric: Google and you will find a lot, depends on what you want. Amazon sells fabric, www.fabric.com has a good selection and free shipping if you buy for more than 35 bux (but for me who use fake fur they dont have everything I want), www.fabricexchange.com has a good selection too.

Good luck!
