Here is a YouTube tutorial on how to stretch those plush dies! Several examples below the product list. There is another post you might like as well:
New Plush Dies
As promised, I started a personal challenge to see what all I could do with the Simon Says Stamp (SSS) Plush Bear Die. I am trying to limit my craft supply spending, (unsuccessfully, LOL!) and want to maximize use of what I get. Since these dies are nearly $30, this was a good starting place:) I only have the chicken and bear currently. (See chicken designs at Gale's Gallery XXII.)
I started this project awhile ago, but have been in the yard since the weather has improved. Knowing it might be awhile before I get the rest of my 12 "bears, etc." done, I decided to show you the ones I've finished. The rest will come soon...I hope. The felt is mostly from Ellen Hutson.
Next is the panda bear...
All I did was cut two black bodies and one white. Decapitated the white piece and layered on top. All of the hand-stitching was done in backstitch.
There's a mouse in my house!
