Kellie Mowat said...

Thanks for the encouraging words Gals! I hope you get a chance to try this. It's such a fun project. I laughed all the way through it. Happy New Year!

Yadira said...

I'm adoring the look of this plushie. Would you share the info about the fur? I love the way it looks as if it's sheep wool. Thanks a LOT for sharing the tutorial! <3

Kellie Mowat said...

Hey there Yadira.
The fun fur I used came from the ends box at Fabricland. I think it's called a faux Mongolian curly fur..... Not sure though, it wasn't marked. It's definitely a short fun fur. Hope you try one of these little guys. They're a heck of a lot of fun to make.
Thanks for writing!

Yadira said...

Thanks a bunch for answering Kellie! :)

I'm already hunting some of that Mongolian fur online. I'll keep you updated with my progress.

Eeep!!! I can't wait.

Yadira said...

Hi again Kellie!

I said I'd keep you updated with my progress in making a plushie in this style, so I wanted to show you my 1st finished plushie.

:D <3 He's ooak because he was for a birthday present, so I'm not making more like him for the time being. I'm already working on a different plushie that I will be making more of though, something more colorful and cute, more my style. Would you like to see them when I'm finished? :D

Kellie Mowat said...

Percy is beyond adorable!!!
Fabulous work!
Ok.... I'm going to stop with the exclamation marks. But WOW!!!!!
So frackin' CUTE!!!
Please do keep me posted. I can't wait to see more.
Also I couldn't help peeking at the rest of your offspring and.... well.... I'm smitten with Merlina.
Your dolls are glorious.
Thanks so much for sharing.
How do you feel about my sharing your lovely Percy with my readers in a tribute post?
Thanks again!

Yadira said...

OMG! Thanks a lot for such kind words. They mean a lot. :D I'm honored that you want to share Percy with your readers. Let me know if you need anything. Have a great day!

I have a quick question about the adhesive. How well does it hold to the face to the body?

Kellie Mowat said...

Hello there Sparkle!!!
The Fabritac works great! As a matter of fact, the doll is still looking like new after five years in my daughter's room and a move to her new apartment. There has been no lifting at all after all of this time. The ears are still tight in there too!
