How to make patterns- Lesson 2 by pheleon How to make patterns- Lesson 2 by pheleon
Originally, I was going to have 3 parts to the tutorial, but I condensed this one so this is the final lesson. :)

I hope this helps! It's really just the starting point of making a plush pattern. Personally, I can just sorta see the shapes floating in my head and unfolding into 2D planes, but explaining that is impossible. In the end, I thought that the most basic way to break down a 3D object is with simple shapes like rectangles, circles and triangles.

If you need clarifications on the contents of this lesson, feel free to comment. However, please don't ask me how to make specific body parts/shapes! With this tutorial, you can figure it out on your own and probably make it better than I can ever explain.

I mentioned my mini-plush pattern in this tutorial, so in case you haven't see it before, here it is:

I have a question about the torso. Would it be better to do a side view to make the pattern or the "boob" pattern?

Ah... Two questions.
Once you have visualized it in an angular form, do to fabric's natural roundness, can you just use that for the pattern ?
And how do you visualize something angularly? I have had trouble figuring that out...

Otherwise, thanks for this! It really helps! Especially when you're a newcomer to pattern drafting all together :iconsweatdropplz:

I feed them a lot of estrogen. ;)

(I just design a pattern that accomodates a bust, and then usually needlesculpt the cleavage.)
