Help making stuffed animal for NYAF.... Please!!
This is going to sound stupid and pointless, but I need help making a stuffed animal. My little brother decided he wants to be Hunny from Ouran High School Host Club, and he wants the dumb pink bunny no matter what. I mean, I have a general idea of how you make a stuffed animal, and I know that I'm going to use the batting/pillow stuffing they sell at Michaels to fill the inside- unless that's the wrong thing to do, but I assume that's fine.
My main issues are what to use as the material for the outside of it, and how it should be sewn up- like if anything special needs to be done so it keeps its shape. Above all though I'm having issues with the fabric- I mean, I went and looked around everything they had at the fabric store, but..
I mean, stuffed animals aren't covered in normal fabric that you would use for clothing or something. It's softer, more velvety or velour-like, fuzzy... I just don't know what kind of fabric I'm even supposed to be looking for, but I'm pretty sure my fabric store doesn't sell it, and they didn't know what I should use either, so I knew if I came here, I'd actually get somewhere with this.
Whatever I do use can't be exorbitantly priced... I'm kinda strapped for cash... but I'm hoping it's cheap, whatever it is- and also that there are a few options I can go with, as I might not be able to find certain fabrics that are suggested and might have to go with a 2nd option.
The bunny has to be done by Sept. 25th too.... Just putting that out there.
Thanks to anyone who can give me any help- you really don't even understand how grateful I will be.
