Queen Chrysalis by MagnaStorm Queen Chrysalis by MagnaStorm
Details of one of the two Chrysalis I made.

She stands at 19" tall not including her horn. She's made from minky(main body,mane), interfaced satin(back...thingy) and organza(wings, so they actually are see-though!). There's also wires in her wings and horns, and her leg holes are reinforced with plastic canvas. Her eyes are machine embroidered and the edges of the holes in her mane and wings are finished with a satin stitch.

As I expected, she was a looooot of work. but I'd like to think it payed off.


And because I know this is going to be a popular question..
How did I make the holes in her legs?
First off, here's a picture that may save you from this ridiculously long explanation: [link]
I cut matching holes in the sides of each legs. I then stuffed her to see how wide her legs would be once she'd be completed. Then I measured the circumference of each holes, and I made tubes with that circumference and the length of each holes out of canvas. Once the canvas tubes were made, I made fabric tubes that were longer than the canvas ones, but still the same circumference. Then I inserted the canvas tubes into the holes, taking out stuffing to make them fit, then put the fabric tubes in them, rolled up the edge of the fabric tube to have a finished end and ladder stitched it to the leg's sides. So here you go! Good luck to anyone who wants to give a Chrysalis plush a try!

I noticed you posted on how to do the holes, but how were the craters done (the carved out parts on the front of her legs)? Did you sew down so far before stopping, or did you cut those out before you even sewed the two pieces together?
I'm attempting to make one tonight, but I'm a bit worried about doing these, but then again I could be worried for nothing :)
Excellent plush, by the way.

The back and the front were just sewn up like a regular leg, but with a modified shape.

The pattern for my Chrysalis' hair is super specific for mine, so I don't think it would work on another plush ):

I got my pattern by draping some scrap fabric over her head and drawing my seams on that. There was a large fabric excess about halfway down her head, I fixed it by making a dart there. Once I had the entire piece drawn I traced it on paper that that became my pattern
