I actually made this guy last Christmas, but once I did, I knew I would be making another for my grandniece's birthday, and I didn't want her mom (littlebiskit) to see it on here. She got hers on Saturday, so now I can finally show him to you.
A friend was going to be dropping by with her baby grandson, and I wanted a little present for him. I found the pattern here http://www.craftbits.com/viewProject.do?projectID=1359 It called for fabrics I didn't have, but the fur, corduroy and flannel I found in my stash worked just fine.


The original called for pellets in the stuffing, but I used all fiberfill. The eyes are embroidered for safety, and except for a few finishing things he is all machine-stitched.

He is so cute!  I have used this pattern before.   I made mine out of plaid material and used a vinyl type fabric for the bill and feet.  Yours is alot cuter then mine.  My kids love platypus because of Perry the Platypus on Phineas and Ferb.

Actually, I am a big fan of plaid, so I think yours sounds great.
