How To Replicate A Plush Toy
Material you need to duplicate a plush toy:
1. The plush/soft/stuffed toy you want to replicate.
2. White cotton or muslin fabric.
3. Pencil and fabric marker
4. Tracing paper
6. Poly-fill for stuffing
7. Fabric glue
8. Sewing essentials
As shown I the photo, I detached one of the ears of the tiger so that it is more accurate and easy to trace the pattern.
Wrap the plush toy as flat as possible with white fabric and secure it with pins.
Pin at the seam lines.
Trace an outline along the seam line. Cut away extra fabric by leaving about 1/4″ – 1/2″ seam allowance.
How it looks from front view. Poor tiger with only 1 ear left… don’t worry, I am going to put it back for you after I finished the tracing, yay…
Do the same for the bottom and other pieces if you have more than 2 parts.
Compare to the original and made necessary alteration to achieve closest possible to the original shape. You might want to use measuring tape to measure some various points and check the dimensions or just merely from your judgment. Remember to update it on your paper pattern as you go.
