I hope you don't mind me asking but would anyone know if this would be the right type of skin colored fabric to use to make anime plushies?…
ClayfrommyHeart Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
What type of fabric does everyone use for their plushies? I am seriously debating restarting my current plushie because fleece always pills up. I am close to done with the plushie but am willing to restart, so I'd like to know what fabric is best/preferred.
Anabiyeni Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I second CuddlePigs. "Animals 2" is still locked/full. Could you open an "Animals 3", please?
ClayfrommyHeart Featured By Owner Edited Aug 4, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Hi Everyone! I am working on a plushie of an anime cat/character and I've run into a small hiccup. I am unsure of how to add the facial features. I tried embroidering for the first time and well... It didn't turn out well. I also tried appliqueing and that didn't really work either. I also tried HeatnBond but that really didn't work..

I don't want to paint the features on because the material is fleece so it will become crusty and rough feeling. Anyone have any idea on what to do?
Anabiyeni Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I also work with fleece and find embroidery prettier than applique, but most of the examples I have seen use either applique (usually with felt) or plastic eyes/noses. I agree that paint would not work well unless you could dye the fabric, say with a pen or marker, but I have not tried that myself.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.
ClayfrommyHeart Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Thank you Anabiyeni! I found that sharpie also left the fleece crusty so I am left with either doing embroidery or an iron on transfer. Both worked well but my embroidery skills are somewhat lacking and I feel like the iron on tranfers are kind of like cheating and am very worried about their peeling and breaking....

I think after having read you're reply, I'll probably go with embroidery. I just need to practice a TON before I actually do the final face.

Thanks again!:D (Big Grin) 
Anabiyeni Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I came to the same conclusion. I am new to embroidery and the fleece tends to poke through for the attempts I have tried, but it doesn't look too bad. I've posted my attempts on my account if you want to see them and there are a few (mostly my little pony-based) tutorials on how to embroider eyes here on dA that might help.

I haven't tried iron-on, but memories of old t-shirts make me concerned about durability, especially if you are making a toy for a child to play with.
