Another custom plush

This is Ashleigheperry's Pontos.



At some point today, I'll be starting on her Nereus.

i wish i could make plushies like that, they look so cute and huggable, would you be prepared to share the pattern so i can have a go? it wouldn't be half as good as yours but it would be fun and i would show you what i come up with:)

Honestly, Indigo, I drew a picture of a betta, then broke it down. Body shape, then finnage.

I do the main body in one piece UNLESS the head is a different color than the body, then it's fleece or felt first, then I cut two slightly larger pieces of the body color, and sew them over the head color as I go. It's much quicker, but attaching the dorsal to the back without a seam (like Nereus) is a pain.

I use embroidery thread, and a large needle, it makes it easier on my hands, but there's times I have to break out my pliers to pull the needle through.

I stuff with fiberfill.

That's all I can tell you, the rest is trade secret. It's makes a Skyewillow betta different than the 2 dozen on Etsy. Syriiven is going to take a whack at it too, and I get to see 6 Skyewillow bettas daily till these fellas ship, so I'm looking forward to seeing a Syriiven Betta, and an Indigo Betta's Betta!

Not a betta, but who doesn't enjoy a cute little jellyfish?!

Ah ha ha ha! I love it and have one question: Did you edit the first picture because on the "sofa" I see there is some darker black lines (Fat ones) and I was wondering if you had done something to it?

LOL yea, my fiance's computer chair is falling apart, so I was covering where the vinyl has come off. ^_^

It's pretty much the same with my mom but she doesn't go digital. When there is someplace where the color is gone, my mom colors it in with a Sharpie.
