Wayward Vagabond plush 2 by SmellenJR Wayward Vagabond plush 2 by SmellenJR
An updated version of this plush. I used some of the same techniques but it didn't take me as long. Maybe a week? (as opposed to 2 weeks on the first one.) This was a christmas present for a friend.

The can of tab is magnetic this time and sticks to his hand. It's also larger for a better scale. The last one was too small. He is made out of alova and minky which was pleated to look like the layered rags. I did the same thing for the queen's ring PM plush. This time I also stuffed the legs so they don't feel as flimsy. I thought it was a good idea before but it makes them feel like they'll fall apart if I do that.

This is not for sale and I don't sell Homestuck merchandise, sorry.

Also please do not ask for patterns/tutorials

I hate to have to stress this but tutorials take a lot of time and effort to be useful to anyone because I have to take into account any tacit knowledge I take for granted and include it in there as well as the refining process of a pattern. You could go find tutorials on the site that already exist and use those as a stepping stone in creating your own though, it's a good learning experience c:

Oh My God ... Like ... WOW ! 
This guy ! I wasn't expecting to see him as a plush on day, even if he's awesome I wasn't thinking that one day ...
Dude, he's like my favourite, the weirdo mayor, you make him so perfectly realistic and detailled but so cute at the same time and, shit, he look so soft !
He can't be better, I'm serious ! Thanks to making that, that make me so happy, you can't even imagine ! 
I'll take a look at your other creations (better you run if it's not the case 'cause I'm totally in love with your work) and want you to continue, just seeing them make me smile so hard,

I want more please ~ ! Seto Kousuke (Being shy and kawaii) [10]

Just wondering but do you use a stabilizer with your minky? <_< I'm not sure if I should invest in some or not

That's great to hear!

If you want to start out with some trial and error, I suggest finding already made patterns to practice on. It will help you with your perception of volume when making your own patterns. I also suggest starting with fleece and moving up to alova (for smaller details) and minky (for just how nice it feels). Fleece is an easy to use fabric that has a high capacity for hiding seams.

I have a tutorial in my gallery on how to make squiddles, which links to a better one lol. People have used mine because it's easier to follow but personally I think it's harder to make than the one I linked to on account of all the ladder stitching.

If you look up the tutorials on devart you're sure to find some good patterns to play with. Good luck!

Haha thanks! For the black I used alova. For his robes I used minky which is also lined with alova. Pleating minky gives it a nice texture and makes it look layered.
