Quick question, what does E.V.A. stand for?

    • Ethylene-vinyl acetate. It is a synthetic rubber-like foam.

This newspaper tip is genius! I kept trying to wing it and imagine what it would look in 3D, but it never worked out. I'll try this next time I make something :3!

Going to try this out.
Last plush pattern I made ended up wasting a good bit of paper and fabric... This'll probably be much faster too. ^ ^;

Thanks much for sharing!!

If you were to make a small version of what you want to plush and then enlarge your pieces, would that work?
Reply
:iconnataliavulpes:
NataliaVulpes Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013  Professional General Artist
yes, but this is better if you are going to make a really big plushie, and make the pattern in a medium size model, if you make the pattern too small  you may lose detail or end with a weird final product.

I'll keep that in mind. Most of the detail can be planned out after the body is done. It's a giant lump pretty much! :D

Thank you for the answer! :3

Thank you so much!I have been looking for ages for a realistic octopus pattern, now I can make one.
Is regular tape ok or is it important to use masking tape (and why)?

:iconnataliavulpes:
NataliaVulpes Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013  Professional General Artist
i think masking tape is better to draw the lines, but you can use any kind of tape

Interesting! I've been trying this myself, but with a clay sculpture model - letting it dry - making seam marks etc. and using scotch tape on top. Works pretty similar.

would it be possible to just make a small scale model of the plushie, so that when you get the pattern you can just resize it to make it bigger? :33

hmmm, I gotta try this. Had an idea though, do you think using some old towels or rags would work better than newspaper? Might be easier to shape and more reusable as well. Just a thought.
Reply
:iconnataliavulpes:
NataliaVulpes Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013  Professional General Artist
i never tried that, but i dont think it will be easyer to shape,some times i use plastic bags,it's easyer than newspaper, but it works better for small projects since they dont make so much volume that the newspaper

Great tute for a beginner pattern maker. It helps you understand how to make the shapes your eye sees. Really good job.
