Well, some people have asked me how I make my plushes' head, so I've tried to make some sort of a tutorial, taking photos of the whole process to try to help.

1.cut to circle pieces of felt and the strip like the ones in the photo
2. start sewing the strip around the piece that will be the face like you see on the picture
3. that's how it should look. ^^ a little swiming pool
4. sew both edges of the strip together
5.turn the face inside out so the seam don't look so ugly
6. sew the back side of the head to the strip
7. leave a hole a fill the head with cotton
8.sew the rest of the strip

sorry for the unnecesary steps ^^"
I hope this helps you

Oh gosh! I want to try it so badly! I've been looking for a pattern forever to start off creating dolls. I think I made my patterns too small so it's a little terrifying. Plus I can't follow this tutorial because I use a machine instead of a needle...*pout* it looks so awesome though!

how wide does the strip of fabric has to be? or is it just up to you? O3O

I measure the fabric strip by putting it around the circle of the face.

Thank you, but what about plushies that have movable limbs via "doll joints"? Or plushies with limbs that hang down like this? [link]

Also, do you know of any fourms for people who make their own stuffed animals/plushies and can get and get advice from each other? You're English seems just fine to me, BTW.

Silly Question, I have this little problem with sewing plushies where when I hand sew them everythings fine til I turn them inside out, stuff them, then continue stitching because my stitch doesnt look the same as the others, I do the same stitch you do in the #2 picture, when you get to the outside stitching how do you make it look the same?

:( maybe you use a different type of sewing. I don't know anything about sewing, I just improvise, so I'm sorry I can't help you

Should the back fabric be the same color as the hair?
Reply

nitanita Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2012
I always make the back of the head the same color of the hair, so when I sew the rest of the hair it looks much better, But it's not necessary :)
