A couple years old now, but this another super early plush. This began a series of similarly-shaped plush animals that started as gifts, but eventually became the foundation of my craft business, FuzziMutt Creations.
Anti-pill fleece again... this time with sewn-on spots and eyes. I hadn't found a suitable hand-stitching method, as I didn't stay consistent between back spots and facial features. Also, this was my first mammal... so the paws are kinda wonky. I found a much better shape eventually. Also, he doesn't stand on his own, lol. But is far more posable than the duck.
I have long since improved my basic pattern, and Puppy 2.0 does exist! You can find him in my Etsy Shop, where you can adopt one of your own. :D
