I've only made one so I'm planning on keeping him, but the next plush I make will be hollyleaf from warriors which I plan to put her on ebay. I might make other watership down rabbits in the future I could sell.

You sewed it yourself?  Wow, this is amazing, very well-done!  Good job!

I didn't know you had a deviantArt account.

This is amazing!! Being able to make plushies has always been an art I admire (and one that I am, admittingly, envious of^^)
How long have you been making plushies? Do you have any tips, perhaps, for getting into it?

Also, Hollyleaf?! Aaaargh why can't I buy things online?! I would LOVE a Hollyleaf plushie!

Well a few months ago i had to do a 10 hour school project so I decided to make plushies. Then I got really into it. I've been wanting to make my own plush toys for a while.

Some tips on sewing are used the same color thread as the fabric, in my opinion the running stich is probably the best to use for plushies, and it's easier to use soft thin fabric.

And how to get into it look up plush patterns for things you like etsy, pintrest or deviant art and you will soon want to sew all of the cuties.

I missread the title and thought it was "Handmade Pipebomb" and got really scared for a few seconds.  :doh

Nice job! Good luck making other plushies in the future.

Only since a few months back? Wow, I'd have thought you had more experience, looking at this plushie^^
I've been wanting to make plushies myself for a while too but I never knew how to even get started. It looked so complicated. But I guess you never get anything done if you don't start at some point. I'll keep those tips in mind when I finally do attempt making my own plushies.

That's already somewhat true actually :D

Thank you, ive been sewing since i was probably 7. I guess I did make some smaller plushies when I was younger, but they weren't to good because I would just cut out shapes and sew them together.
A good cute easy pattern that I like is this one.
