Years ago I had made a couple plushies by hand (just fabric, a needle, and thread. I didn't have a sewing machine)
Fairly recently Me and Petrina tried to make an attempt at sewing together a plush. Starting with a basic body, we went for it, petrina using a sewing machine, and I designed his look, and sowed much of it by hand. The result is this plush, Mr. Fancy!
You can check out some of Petrina's work here: http://petridesign.blogspot.com/
And she's selling a guitar for you music people out there!
I hope to do more plush work soon, this was fun to make!
