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.
