It's alive...

Normally the moment one of my Plushies comes alive is the moment I attatch the eyes. The eyes, I think, finish it's personality and tells you exactly what kind of Plushie you have. The cute little smile and the way one of the tentacles is a little shorter than the other seven all help make the plushie an individual but it's not alive until it can see you and make you love it using it's big round soppy eyes. Usually the eyes are the last thing to go on so they symbolise the little creature truly being a whole creature like it's being born!!

Today I got to the point with my plushie where I realised the eyes would have to go on now or never, however the plushie is still in two halves and is unstuffed. It felt odd stitching eyes on to an empty sack and even weirder pinning the two parts together with these two round eyes staring up at me!

The title of this blog, I realise, suggest pictures should be involved however I'm not sure a plushie in two parts would make a good picture and I don't want to ruin the surprise for it's future owner! So I'll let you're imaginations run wild for now and leave you with the knowledge the plushie is made out of a bright pink pashmina and a purple fluffy pillow case.

I am looking forward to seeing the creature, regardless of whether or not he is inside out!!
