I made my Etsy Avatar into a Plushie...sorta

It's just a prototype, but I wanted to see if I could do it...

It's cute in a primitive sort of way. My DS thinks I should add fangs, but not googly eyes...shrug.

Like I said, except for the Sock Snakes I made for everyone's new babies' way back when this has been my first foray into stuffed critters...I still have a Cocytan from The Dig to make for DS which I promised I'd do 10 years ago and a Triops...


I made him out of Green Fleece and an Autumn Ombre yarn with orange Glitter Stiff Felt for his tummy. His spikes are from the yarn and his body from the fleece and he's stuffed with Polyester Fiberfill. I used my Glue Gun, but if I was going to do him for sale, I might sew him instead...

...he's a real work of art isn't he...quite a character...think i'd say he was an 'assemblage' as opposed to a 'plushie'!

Very true...I didn't think of that...Thanks, Chrisy.
