About This Class

Learn how to create soft plush dolls from prop artist Andrea Gilletti - owner of Killin’ Me Softly Dolls, an online destination for villainous plushes and freelancer in the New York puppet scene. This class is great for crafters of all skill levels, from children (assisted by adults of course) to working professionals. You will learn to design, construct and sew your plush from scratch. By the end of this class you will have your own adorable and individual plush toy designed and sewn by you, as well as learning some useful and simple hand stitching techniques.

Great class, very thorough, can't wait to make my own kitty into a plush and make gifts for my friends!
Very informative. The information given can be used to make all sorts of various different plushes. Susan looks a little less then thrilled, but that's what kept my daughter and I laughing.
