I don't know if you have since found a better one, but if you haven't, here's a good one I plan to use:

All the plushies this person's made look excellent, if that helps.

BabyLondonStar's tutorial and patterns are excellent; I have never had problems with them... HOWEVER depending on the type of fabric you plan on using, you could run into a problem flipping the pieces right side out, due to the fact that the pattern she offers is for small UFO's, not the regular sized ones. Either use thin fabric (I used felt because i'm poor and it was too thick, so something thinner than that like ultra suede or something) or enlarge the pattern.

good luck!

I used the chibi tutorial by ~LoRi-La-Tortuga and it all worked out fine! I had to make my own pattern using a cd to make a circle for the head and then just kinda made my own body. The only problem I had was sewing on the head, but it was my first attempt at making a chibi let alone sewing anything for years, so it may have been my fault lol.

i don't know if you're still looking at ways to make plushie making easier, but some thing that i have found are things when ur sewing on the head leave some stuffing out and start in the front of the head so any unsightly closing stitches can be hidden with hair. i also would recommend using a nice muslin to make plushies, especially if u plan on painting on the face. it's much easier to draw on, holds paint well, and is relatively cheap!
