A potential design sketch gets approved! We simplify the design and get it ready for the prototype process.
The fabricators sew a first draft! We make changes to:
1. The features and body! It will need to be updated and simplified
once we see how the seams fall on the 3D version.
2. The eyes! These often have to change from plastic to different types of embroidery, and back again, depending on how they sit on the fur.
3. The colors! Colors that look great on paper often look different when seen with the shine and shadow of fur. They almost always need to be tweaked, or changed completely!
If the design still doesn't work after a couple of rounds we'll file it away for now. Otherwise, the design is approved! It usually takes about six months from approval until the final Squishables are ready for your hugs!
