Patterning is kind of an essential skill of fabrication and has popped up in so many different projects I've done over the years. I've yet to try my hand at doing any large patterns but I've sure done a bunch of small ones. My boys have always enjoyed scifi, fantasy, and video games so I've spent a fair amount of time creating plushes of some of their favorite critters.
My first real year at DragonCon, one of the amazeballs women I'm proud to call a bestie flew out and we threw together some Adventure Time costumes. I made myself some Ice Queen pieces and put my plushie skills to use making Gunter.
