Wild Blue Platypus by JitterBugBark Wild Blue Platypus by JitterBugBark
I finished the platypus!

These pictures show the "wild" side to the blue platypus. I grabbed its tail and gave him a shake! That makes his fur fluff up. If I hold him my by the bill and shake the fur goes backwards instead of forwards for a more relaxed look. :)

I don't know how I could over look this. I adore platypus!!!
Too bad he's not pink... Still so cute. I'll have to see if you have any left.

I'm changing the size of my platypi. I have a little bit of pink faux fur. I'll have to see if I have enough to make a platypus or 2. The more the better. :) I should make some for the craft show.

Ahaha, I love plushes that have long fur like that. How wild they look is always so entertaining!

It's always fun to play around with colors, especially when the animal is a platypus. :D

do you prefer machine or hand stitch? I just started doing whole projects with a sewing machine and the time saved is incredible!

I used to sew everything by machine. But my daughter used to press on the peddle and almost run over my fingers, so I stopped using the machine. I think I'd use the machine again for pouches that I put inside the plushes, but I'd still hand sew everything. I find hand sewing plushies come out more symmetrical, at least for me.

He is too-too-too cute. I can just imagine a platypus rainbow! ^_^ (Although that would be a rainbow I would not want to taste.)
