*mad scientist laugh*
And if you wondered how embroidery on that stuff was possible, behold the miracle of topping stabilizer. It sits on top of the pile (usually of a towel, if you're normal, or high-pile faux fur if you're me) and holds it down while you stitch over it, then when you're done it just tears away (it looks like cling wrap but feels a little more papery, and tears easily). It's water-soluble, so any bits that get left behind can be blotted away with a damp towel.
@silverseams Ah, that explains how the embroidery patterns were done on my darling squishable moths! fascinating~
@silverseams That is fascinating! I had noticed bits of remaining topping stabilizer on a plushie I bought, now I finally know what it was used for! 😄 Thank you for explaining your mad science.
