Beanbag t-rex by IsisMasshiro Beanbag t-rex by IsisMasshiro
Well, I started to make plushie requests, but only inside Finland.

I don't sell things as an example to America... and I am very specific about who I will and when I make a plushie.

This already selled tyrannosaurus-beanbag has sandsacks in his head, torso and legs. Colors are fabricpaint.

It looks just perfect! So well done, so detailed and realistic, too! I simply lack words!
May I ask You few questions? I'm curious, what kind of fabric did You use for this plushie, and for any others that You use fabric paint on?
Also, You said there are sandsacks in it - did You make these on Your own or bought some ready ones somewhere? I'm a plushie maker myself and I wanted to make few of my upcoming crafts be somewhat heavier, but I'm not sure what could I use to add weight to them, would You be so kind and give me a little hint?
Thanks in advance!

Thank you. ^^
I used really thin and flexible white fabric, which can suck colors very well. I made the sandsacks by myself. But is always better to use plastic pellets for "beanbagging" the plushie. You can buy those pellets from different stores.

I absolutely love Your arts, all of them - and plushies especially! I look up to You very much as a plushie maker, in fact - Your Mosasaurus plushie is what inspired me to give sewing a try! I'd very much love to own some plushie made by You, but from what I see, You're not open for commissions nor trades now, so I'm just waiting with a quiet hope that someday maybe I'll manage to catch some occasion ; )

I see! I'd want to add more detail to some of my plushies, but the fabrics I use mostly hate fabric paint, but then, I hesitate to pick some more 'paint-friendly' one, since I'm afraid it wouldn't be soft enough for a plushie. What would You say about the fabric You used from that point? Is it more rough or cuddly enough?

Hm, different stores You say...What kind of stores though? I mean, for example these ones with materials for sculpting and painting, or maybe simply those with all kind of school items like notebooks, erasers, paper and such? Or maybe some other? I've never seen such plastic pellets or beanbags around anywhere, so I don't know where to look ^^''

Well that's great to hear that I inspired someone! ^^
It is good that you noticed that I'm not open to commissions by now, but let's hope that I will again someday...when I get these old works done.

Keep looking the fabric. And if you use more water with painting the fabric, it will become more soft. But if you use too much water, the colors get too faded via time.

I bought my own from ebay, because in here Finland I can't find proper plastic pellets from reason. Look from internet strores and ebay?

I have but this plushie's patterns I wouldn't publish. ^^'
But the basics are the same as in my parasaurolophus-patterns, just the shapes are different.
