...okay, so only his bill is pleather, but it's still fun to say Smiley
this is all my own pattern and created from random fabric bits i had lying around Smiley  unfortunately the main fabric i used is REALLY hard to photograph, so i appologize in advance Smiley  used: brown satin (lining from an old jacket) for feet, black vinyl for bill, tan corduroy (from an old jacket) for belly, and paisley stretch velvet (another jacket Smiley for the body.... actually as soon as i saw the paisley, i knew it had to be a platypus!!!

Hee hee.  That's so cute.  I like the choice of fabric.  The Mr. and I have a huge platypus collection, and you made a good one.

As for a name, I'm having a childhood flashback to 70s TV shows.  How 'bout Rockford?
