Beanie tutorial *LINK IN DESCRIPTION* by MagnaStorm Beanie tutorial *LINK IN DESCRIPTION* by MagnaStorm
Find the full tutorial and pattern here! www.facebook.com/media/set/?se… (and like my page while you're at it? =P ) Or if you cannot access the tutorial on Facebook for whatever reason it's also available here now sta.sh/229nxaueial3 . Just print the pattern full page(or larger, or smaller, this is only a recommended size as long that all pages are printed at the same scale you're good) and you're ready to sew!

Did this for hitting 2k likes on my Facebook page, I figured it was about time I posted this here too.

This pattern is fairly simple to sew, but requires some very basic sewing knowledge. It does NOT include the patterns for my Eeveelutions, although it would be fairly simple to draft your own. Feel free to modify as you see fit, this is only a blank base! If you make something using this pattern I would love to see it ^^

hello there, I was wondering what stitch you recommend using for this. I started making mine with a blanket stitch without realising ^^;
will I still be able to finish my plushie if I keep using the blanket stitch or should I start again?

You could get away with a plain straight stitch but if you want to make it extra durable you can use a backstitch. A blanket stitch might make the seam allowance too thick once you flip the plush right side out and warp the result

oops, i forgot to mention, I'm using felt for it (it's the only fabric I have readily available at the moment) so I don't know if backstitch would hold it together very well. What do you suggest? :'0
(I'm not a very experienced sewer ^^; )

The backstitch is one of the most solid hand stitch you can do, I'm not sure why it wouldn't hold on felt? Make it tight enough and it should be fine.
Just as a side note; felt is fine for learning but it deteriorates very quickly. I'd recommend fleece instead if you want to make a more durable plush.

all right~ uvu
I'll probably finish the tail with blanket stitch (I already started it with blanket stitch) then do the rest in backstitch.
Thank you for the advice! :')

You don't need to, but it does go a lot faster if you do.

I've never made a plush before.. Am I the only one that can't seem to figure out how to attach the tail by reading the tutorial? :( I noticed it wasn't mentioned on here, but people seem to be able to figure it out.. Am I missing something? haha

The tail is simply hand sewn on using a ladder stitch at the end when all the pieces are stuffed :)

Oh alright, thanks! I wasn't sure because in the picture the hole in the back seemed too small to fit the tail and the head so I wasn't sure where exactly the tail was supposed to be stitched on ^^;

Do you also stuff the tail when you make it with fur?
Reply
:iconmagnastorm:
MagnaStorm Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
yup, though since fur is a lot more rigid than minky I don't use a lot of stuffing

Might be a silly question, but putting the sand in it, you cannot wash it in a washing machine, right? (yes, I'm a total newbie about plushing >.<")
Reply
:iconmagnastorm:
MagnaStorm Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
with sand they are not washable, but you could substitute the sand for small beads or actual plastic pellets www.crscraft.com/products/prod… or even better glass pellets www.crscraft.com/products/prod… made specifically for this purpose. I actually do not use sand anymore, I use the plastic pellets, but the sand is more readily available and I didn't feel like remaking the entire tutorial to change that xP

:icontsukitheripper:
TsukiTheRipper Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
xD Ah I see! I was really wondering about it!
Wjen you wash it, don't you risk to have the pellets going all through the plush anyway? Or they stay in the places where you put them?
Reply
:iconmagnastorm:
MagnaStorm Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
The stuffing behind the pellets should be enough to hold them in place, but if you're planning on stuffing the beanie really loose and don't think the stuffing alone will be enough you can make little bags for the pellets and insert those in the paws. Then when you do your thread sculpting it'll sew the bags in place so they won't move ^^
