Pickles the Plushie

PicklesMain

Lately I’ve had the yen to turn my comic character Pickles into a plushie, so after two days of sketching, thinking, sewing and rubbing my chin…here he is! 🙂

First of all, I created a maquette out of green paper:

Then I took the paper apart and transferred the pattern onto baking paper:

Next, I pinned the baking paper pattern onto the felt and cut out the pattern pieces:

After sewing some of the pieces together (including sewing and stuffing the tail to completion), I drew on the pupils with fabric markers and glued Pickles’ face on:

The fabric glue needed to be ironed to set, so off I went to the ironing board:

At long last, it was time to sew everything together and stuff the plushie.  At last Pickles was finished and looking extra smiley! 😀

I hope you enjoyed looking into the process of making a Pickles plushie!  I plan to perfect the design a little more, as well as creating different moods for the plushies, and soon will be launching an Etsy store, but all in good time…

Take care, keep happy and have a wonderful rest of the week!  If you’re in the mood for more Pickles madness then check out Sevillana comics here or join the weekly comic strip mailing list here. :mrgreen:
