      Hi Wanping,

      I’m afraid I don’t use either modpodge or pva much, so I’m probably not the best person to inform you on substitutions for them. But if I do start using them or their substitutes, I’ll be sure to post about it!

      The one thing I DO use quite a bit to add a bit of gloss and durability to some of my projects is simple water-based varnish or sealant that you can buy at the hardware store (about $7 for a small can around here, which will last you through a LOT of projects). You can see an example of my use of it here: http://tallystreasury.com/2010/09/round-paper-earrings/

      To be honest, I don’t do a lot of cartooning type stuff myself, especially since my drawing skills are waaaay rusty. :) But I’ll mull it over, and if a good project along those lines comes to mind I’ll be sure to try it out and post it!

    Hi! I just discovered your blog while trying to find an Assassin’s Creed hood pattern and I absolutely love it!! :D

    Could you maybe do a tutorial on how to make a plushie Appa from Avatar: The Last Airbender? He’s just the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!!

      Hi Nicky, thanks for stopping by and commenting! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the blog. :)

      I confess, I still haven’t had a chance to watch any Avatar: The Last Airbender, so I had to google the critter you named. He is pretty adorable, though! I don’t do usually dotutorials for really specific plushies unless they’re suuuper simple ones, but maybe at some point I could look at doing a tutorial for a basic 4 (or more) legged “beast” kind of plushie, to use as a base for other, specific dolls. We’ll see. Plushie making tutorials usually get extremely complicated and long very fast. :) What I recommend (it’s how I figured out how to make them) is starting with some basic dolls to get the idea of 3D sewing, and just going from there! :)
