Actually I think this might be my first plushie, too.
Sorry for the bad picture. I only have a scanner right now, but I'll try to get better pictures sometime soon. The face is embroidered on, and it's sewn together with embroidery thread. Made of cheap, 25 cent felt. I made the stitches and the ends visible (instead of turning it inside out) because I thought it was cuter. It's about as big as my palm (and my hands are six inches from the top of my wrist to the tip of my middle finger).
I promise it's cuter in person! My normally sort of stoic boyfriend looked up at me, walked over to the door, shut it, came back, and then -squealed-. It was excellent.
Thanks for looking!
EDIT: I made another one!
This is a umeboshi onigiri, or a pickled plum rice ball. The little plum is worried because he's afraid no one will see him, stuck on the rice ball's back. But we see him.
I plan to put a little spot of velcro on the back of the rice ball and the plum so he's detachable. Or should I just go ahead and put him on?
Again, thanks for looking!
