You will learn

Plush Your Pet – Sew, Design and Create A Plush Doll of Your Pet!

In this class you will go through the process of creating a plush toy and end up with a plushie of your own. Using photos of your family pet (or your favorite internet animal celebrity) you will learn the process of designing a pattern, how to decide on the features for your plush and finally how to hand sew your plushie. This is a great class for learning basic hand sewing techniques as well as tips on sourcing appropriate materials to make a professional looking plush toy.

Upon completing your plush you are encouraged to post photos of your finished plush in the project library. When posting professional photos of a plush it is important that three essential shots are present – an overall wide shot of the plush, a close up detail view and a back view. In this case, since your plush will be based on a reference photo, it would also be great to post a comparison photo of both your plush and the pet that it is based on.
