I would like to start making plusies like you (but for myself, not for selling) and I would like to know where are you buying your fabric? If you buy it online, can you give me the site? And I wanted to know how do you sew eyes on your plushies? Are they embroidered? Or if you do that by hand, can you show how you do this in a video? Thanks for answering and I hope you'll understand because english isn't my first language :p
Ps: I loooooove what you do.
I buy my fabric at Joann's Fabrics in person (not online) so I can get a better feel of the fabric before I buy it. My plushie eyes are small felt circles sewn on with whipstitch and I add a highlight using an embroidered french knot. I've shown this process in a bunch of videos, including both of these:

I'm a new fan of yours and am so inspired by you! I've always been a crafter and loved being creative since I was little and I still love it. I love sculpting, and drawing, but mostly sewing things like plushies. I've even decided to take it to the next level and want to start selling my crafts! The only problem is I have no idea how to start. Do you have any tips on starting selling your products and finding the time and patience to produce so many crafts? Thanks so much!
