Plush dolls - Process

Bonus sketches for those that preorder the Yeti
So much thoughts and process were put into making these little BIG guys. There were a lot of revisions in order to get the pattern/color/details correct. Just getting the proportions right took a very long time. The hue and saturation of the embroidery has to be perfect in order for the color to work. Here is a glimpse of what was going on behind the scene. 

Which brown.. which brown?

Yeti and Sasquatch Plush dolls

Baby Yeti Vinyl Sticker Design
Our Yeti and Sasquatch plush dolls are done! Yay! I have been reminded again how difficult it is to produce your own product.  It was such a crazy process. There were times when I think "why am I doing this to myself?!" When it's my own product, I really do want to make sure it is "perfect". Well, as perfect as I can possibly make it with whatever means I have at least. Other than making sure that the translation of the design has to be done well, the materials also has to be carefully chosen. The colors of the materials also have to be just right. There were so many prototype revisions down to crazy changes on embroidery colors (subtle hue changes even) to make sure that everything looks right. My sister is the quality control girl and I couldn't do this with out her. She's so good at the little details.
