catfish plushie by BakaMichi catfish plushie by BakaMichi
This is a catfish plushie I made for myself, as catfish plushie's seem to be hard to come by ^w^ And yal know how much I love catfish. It's based on the breed "Blue Catfish" But I made it pink, cuz pink is better. It was a lot of fun to make and took about 7 hours to sew together, sewn by hand, cuz I'm too poor to own a sewing machine :XD: I'm thinking of making another one sometime soon, now that I've worked out some slight problems I had in the making of this one.

Anywho, I'm alos hosting a catfish naming competition, so if you feel that you can come up with a good name for this plushie, leave a comment here-> [link]

Competition ends 15th of February 2009 so if you are looking at this picture past that date please don't bother entering lol

PS- his eyes are slightly different colours lol Cuz the button's are from different places, bet none of you knew that?!?! Huh!?!? :XD:

Do you have a pattern for this little guy? I'd love to make some for myself, and some friends.

Mishu :D :D :D Yess!

I made this plushie, and did a contest where people entered names for it C:

Mishu was the winning name by my friend Aerin :iconkakashiforever: C: I made her an animation as a prize XD

ohman, I haven't drawn Mishu in a while ;3;

This= win as it's a pretty nice example of a stuffed fish. (Instead of being flat and almost 2D.)

If you haven't already, you could consider offering a smaller or altered pattern for this.XD

Uploading the pattern?

I usually make up the patterns as I go along, but I'd be willing to attempt making a pattern for it at some point c:

Internet high-five to you.

I've been wanting to try my hand at a complex pattern that requires more than a front and back panel but I've got time to spare for waiting. I think a fish would be the perfect practice, and the end result can be used to slap someone all Monty Python-style.:D

haha if I had the time to make lots I would :XD: It took me about 5 hours or so for this one, well the designing would've added an hour or so :giggle:

Yes, I love catfishies! I want pet catfish... :D

Actually fish is the only meat I eat, and I always feel so bad about it D: I plan to give it up soon

I wish I didn't like meat at all, I hate that guilty feeling!
I don't eat it too often, but when I do, I picture all these perfectly great animals being treated like crap... :wow:
Giving it up completely couldn't be such a bad idea. ^^; Kudos if you do! :giggle:

Yes, I will one day. I always feel so bad for the fish TT^TT Yeah, giving up meat was a bit difficult, mostly because I'm a creature of habit and I almost kept forgetting :XD: But now it's a habit for me to check if anything has animal bi-products in it lol Even the stuff from vegetarian shops

Are you a guy or a girl? It's been scientifically proven it is almost ten times harder for men to give up meat than it is for females. Males enjoy it a lot more because of "hunter instincs"

Seppukumaru Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2009
Checking for bi-products... that's pretty dedicated.
"Hunter instincts" LOL... oh dear. 8D

Most of my family's vegetarian so I don't have to worry about temptation too much...
And soy meat's pretty good, I have to admit. :giggle:

lol Yes, Hunter instincs..hopefully you won't go killing stuff though :XD: lol

Oh really? ^w^ I'm glad your family are such good people then! Being vegetarian is sometimes hard...it certainly makes eating out harder :P

Yeah, my Blob Minion ~shoujo-neko likes the soy meat stuff too! :D

Seppukumaru Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2009
We only eat out maybe... three times a year? So, I've probably got an advantage over the average American. :poke:

In the meantime, I'll try not to ponder the relationship between a Blob Minion and its Overlord :giggle:

haha she's just a friend, a really good friend :) Blob Minion is my soul mate :giggle: Although she seemed worried when I said that to her :lmao:

Anyhow, yeah, I really only eat out when I go to the city, and then i have a spud with pineapple, beetroot and sourcream. I know all those are safe, so it's all good. Grosses my sister out though :rofl: Oh, she's a veggo too btw!
