OC Robin Plush Walkthrough by dot-DOLL OC Robin Plush Walkthrough by dot-DOLL
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Just a walkthrough as to how I make stuffs. It's not particularly thrilling, and is aimed at beginners, so might be a bit basic.

Actual Robin:

I need to remember to take more photographs and I wouldn't have to talk as much...

I might make more of these, along with some eventual tutorials and templates. Anybody want anything in particular? Let me know!

the eyes are hand embroidered! Do u think you could do a tutorial or give me some pointers? I have trouble filling in the bigger spots, it always ends up looking bunchy and ugly when I do it. :(

That is super cute and really helpful!
I've kind of wanted to make a stuffy thing for a while now, but  there's just no good tutorials out there ;) I already suggested this, but post a simple dragon pattern for something maybe?
IS it poseable at all?

I've a small question about the horns on the cheeks: did you have them as separate, sewn together pieces, which you attached afterward? I'd think that'd be a bit tough to turn right side in!
Reply
:icondot-doll:
dot-DOLL Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Hi! Her horns and spines are actually sewn into the head piece and were part of the completed plush, not hidden stitched on once she's stuffed. With more experience now I would recommend stitching them on afterwards. There is no right or wrong way, it's just whatever is easiest for you.

Haha! Awesome! I can't wait! I've been getting better at sewing, so i wanted to try my hand at a fun plushie. I've followed patterns before, but i always seem to modify them... XD

dot-DOLL Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Modifying is good! You don't want to be bound by what's already there. Even if you just make the legs longer or the tail shorter or something, its better than just replicating what's already there.

I'm trying to make bird wings that have wire in them and need some help.
When you put the wire in the wings, does in go thur. the big part? (the lilac and pink) And is the wire all one big part, running thur. both wings?

Thanks! :)

:icondot-doll:
dot-DOLL Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
I put the wire in the largest part of the wing, and anchor it in the body (like shoulder blades). If you put it in the little part of the wing, the top might be too heavy and push it down. You could do both for super stability if you like, but that might be a bit fiddly.
I unfortunately only had pipe cleaners at the time so the wire was broken up. Try and use one continual piece if you can, so it doesn't come unravelled after a few bends.

FoxTone Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013   Digital Artist
Ok.
B/c I was thinking of have 4x pieces of the big wing part and only having 2x pieces of the inside wing. Could you explain to me when/ how I should get the wire in the wings?
I mean do I sew like a little line running all the way from the tip of the wing to the base and just insert the wire into there?
I'm like so confused when it comes to wire and wings.

:icondot-doll:
dot-DOLL Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
You could sew the wire in, but it would make a visible line. Works on dragon/bat wings, maybe not what you want on birds.
Fold the tip of the wire (in the tip of the wing) over into a loop, and sew the loop to the wing tip, preferably into the seam so its not very noticible. You can sew the wire in with a few stitches at other points too, just little patches so its not as noticible, and that will hold the wire in place, provided you're not too rough with it.
You probably don't need to wire the smaller part if it's only one layer thick, because it will be sewn directly onto the larger wing for stability.
try making small, quick versions with messy stitching just to see how it'll all work.
I add my wings on when I've finished everything else, either sewing them in to the main body or hidden stitching them on afterwards. They just get in the way otherwise XD

FoxTone Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013   Digital Artist
Ok.
So what you're saying is to, fold the wire in half so there is a loop at the end. And then sew the loop into the wings using small stitches and some other small stitches along the wire, just to keep in held in place???

dot-DOLL Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Yep, pretty much X3

Try on a smaller test wing just to see if you get the result you want.

Making templates is pretty easy once you get your head around the basic maths and shapes. Don't be afraid of learning from other peoples examples! Don't give up!

Would it be ok if I modified the pattern to make it more wolf/fox like?
I won't be selling the pattern or the plush. It just for personal use.
