Plushie UV Grid Suzanne


Does this count as a finished Blender project? I think it does.

It’s Suzanne, as a stuffed animal with a UV Grid motif. Each of the rainbow crosses was hand-embroidered onto the grey checkered fabric.

The sewing pattern was designed in Blender - it’s effectively a UV layout.
With Blender’s cloth simulation I as able to simulated the outcome, which allowed me to iterate on the design inside Blender.

I used my Seams to Sewing pattern add-on to help with this part. Thread here: 🧵 Seams to Sewing Pattern (v 0.9, for 2.8 and 2.9)
Once I was happy with the layout and the result, I transferred it to fabric and sewed the result.

WIP (before turning it inside-out):

She now lives happily at the Blender Foundation offices in Amsterdam.


Wooow I love it! Would you mind sharing the story on BlenderNation? →

Sew for yourself!


Hi, great idea for a plush toy - Suzanne deserves it! :smiley: Do you mind sharing a svg or png with templates for this version of Suzanne? I’d love to try make one myself but currently I’m unable to generate one in Blender by myself. :pleading_face:

Lighting is unrealistic, and I think you’ve gone too far with the particle hair fluff.

Just kidding, great work!

I was thinking…That’s one of the most realistic renders I’ve ever seen. The little fibers…a hair system? Then I realized it was a photo. Nicely done, though.
