Mavis Vermilion Plush - Fairy Tail by sakkysa Mavis Vermilion Plush - Fairy Tail by sakkysa
For :iconhao-007:

This was my first time working with minky. I understand why people love it; it's soft. It's soooooo very soft. ; ^ ; But it also sheds like crazy and makes a HUGE mess so I can't say I'm super fond of sewing with it. ;D

I actually had a lot of trouble with this plush, even though the design is pretty simple. There was something wrong with the iron on transfer paper and it gave me trouble the entire time. I should've quit with it and got another sheet but I was stubborn and tried to make it work. So the face came out a little wonky. I accidentally smudged the ink on the eye so I tried to correct it by adding shading to them. I'm not entirely sure it was effective.

Even though I had quite a bit of trouble with her and even though the minky made a HUGE MESS, I'm glad I was able to make her and learn some things. ^___^ Next plush will be Kyoko from Madoka Magica!

She is so adorable! I'm seriously considering making my own Mavis plush so if you have any tips on materials that'd be awesome! :) And just in case it doesn't work out...when do you think your plush adoption will be open again? I really admire your work :blowkiss:

Thank you! I used minky for this per the request of the commissioner but I usually use deersuede and felt. :D I hope to open later this year, but it will depend on how long it takes me to catch up on the current list. You have to be on the mailing list to book, that's here: senshistock.us6.list-manage.co…

It's adorable. I'd hug the days out of something like that right away x'3 I'm going to dig into the art of plushie making myself this year as I'm going to cosplay Zeref from Fairy tail and I'm doing an Acnologia plushie for myself.. I'm just wondering that how many times do I have to remake it due to it being a dragon.. XDDD

Hello, I wanted to know what you used to get the fabric to stick without sewing it on? Do you just use fabric glue?

sakkysa Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The glue I use is called Beacon 527 ^__^

Really wonderfully done! I love the colours you used  and how you made it and I'm curious about something:
How do you keep the hair strands on the front from fraying? Or does the material (you said you used minky, I don't know what it is like since I don't really know it) just not fray when you cut it?

Thanks!! I have a fray block that I use on the edge of fabric that frays. I can't remember if I used it on this or not. Sorry about that, it's just been a while. ^___^;

How do your plushies stand on their own?
And the pastel colours are really nice.

How do you make the eyes or the whole face - do you draw it or do you sew it on?

She came out wicked cute. I think the shading helped out quite a bit really brings the eyes out. Can't wait to see your Madoka Magica project, currently working on Madokami Cosplay so it'll bring me much inspiration. :3
