Hey /diy/, a meme page on Facebook posted some plush Gondolas.
I was wondering if anyone on here knows how the creator might have made this?
Here's an up close Gondola selfie for reference
Are you retarded? Did this really need it's own thread?
It's just coloured felt cut into the pattern, then sown or glued together with whatever you can stuff inside.

"Gondola was not a mistake
Gondolas are relaxed, harmless creatures that observe their environment. They rarely interfere anything, but just keep observing. They rarely talk, just look around and smile. This makes them very different from other creatures such as spurdo, that feel, pepe, yoba, etc.
Gondola is the silent walker. Having no hands he embodies the Taoist
principle of wu-wei (non-action) while his smiling facial expression
shows his utter and complete acceptance of the world as it is."
I just want to know how to make a plush doll like in the pictures.
pls help /diy/ ;-;
Make a pattern like my crude attempt, experiment with the proportions. Read a sewing guide for plushies and start sewing. Stick/sew on details.
Some ideas: Add thick metal wire in Gondolas legs to make him posable. Or bend this appendages and sew the creases shut for a permanent pose
Thank you for your help. If I make 2 of those designs in your pic and sew them together, do you think the seam would be that noticeable? In the pictures I posted it seems seamless.
Also I really like your idea with the wire for it to be posable, thank for that.
Again, a sewing guide would explain everything better than I would. But yes, you'd sew two patterns together around the edge, except his crouch area. Through that you turn him inside out so the messy seam is inside the body. Using a wolly/felty fabric could make the seam nearly invisible on the outside. Stuff him through the hole and shut everything with a blindstitch.
>fug i kinda wanna make one too :--DDD
realize that if the pattern looks like that, it will be turn out a lot thinner in real life as it will be curved once its stuffed. So make it extra-fat your first time and adjust the proportions from there
