Pabu Fire Ferret Plush Prototype by IchibanVictory Pabu Fire Ferret Plush Prototype by IchibanVictory
I never intended to make a plush from the Avatar cartoon series, but a friend's birthday came up and I didn't have anything to show for it...or so I thought! I had the idea to try and make a plush Pabu using existing materials I had on hand, so this guy came about over the course of a few hours before I had to dash to work and not have access to my sewing table for a week. (I miss my sewing space already!)

I made Pabu akin to how I've made my other plush critters, but his body is more elongated, as a ferret's ought to be. I also hand-stitched the brown bars below his eyes. I wanted to give him the white fluff under his ears, and even have white craft fur, but I couldn't figure out a way to do it that wouldn't look horribly bad. Also, since I did sew this up so fast, and it was all a test, the striping on his tail doesn't match up perfectly...

All in all, I was shocked and happy with how he turned out, factors considered. If I ever have the free time, I hope to post up his pattern as well.

(Last confession: These pictures were taken with my iPad 2. I did take pictures with my regular camera, but the lighting wasn't as nice, so the flash kept going off and making it look bad, so I had to go with lower quality but better looking pictures. Maybe someday I'll get better pictures!)

Hopefully one of these days! I've been busy with work and general summertime activities (like camping!), but I really want to get back to sewing soon. Once I regain my sewing space, I'll see if I still have all of the pattern pieces to post up how I made this guy.

A fairly delayed comment (my turn to be late ^^;), but 'eeeeeeeeeek~' was seriously the first thing that came to mind!!
Such an adorable little guy~!! (If you do post the pattern, I'd definitely try to make one sometime. This looks really good- especially for a test.) Pabu is such a cutie, and this is fantastic! Awesome, awesome job!
I WANT TO HUG HIM SO VERY MUCH...
