Hey so summer's coming up pretty quickly, and I'm considering making a plush or two depending on my schedule. Digging into my list, I've noticed just how many ideas I've got here (I've been adding far more than I thought, and making on average a plush a year at this rate).
Part of my process is sketching the plushes out as how I'd want them, and then making rough flat patterns to see how it would work. I actually do this for roughly 4 different plushes at a time and only use one idea.
A lot of people have been asking me for patterns, and I always say no. But I'm considering putting up sketches and stuff onto my art blog if people are curious for ideas, or to watch potentially a plush work in progress from scratch. I'll do my best to put accurate flat patterns up so if people want to use them, they can, but it's somewhat difficult to be completely accurate without making the plush myself (I've told people over and over again half the reason I don't give patterns is because I work trial-and-error).
If this is something you'd be interested in, feel free to comment here and let me know. I wouldn't mind doing it seeing how many people have asked.
