Common Pipistrelle by ellis-animals Common Pipistrelle by ellis-animals
I wanted that little bat to look like a Common Pipistrelle, but I think it's a bit too big. Wingspan of this little guy is 20cm/8" and he is made of plush, suedine and alcantara. He has just 4 fingers and toes, there wasn't enough space to add a fifth. :D

This guy is adorable! I love that the 'membranes' between the fingers fold in - just gives it more of a realistic touch. So many little details to like about this - the beady eyes, the ears and how they've been folded, the toes. Quite accurate as far as plush goes.

Thank you! It was quite difficult since it's so small.

I am very tempted to get this. I saw someone else had tried purchasing it from you but decided they'd wanted a larger one as it would be cheaper. I don't have any money right now though and I don't know when I'd get any. Ooh and as for thinking he's too big, they tend to have a wingspan of about 19-25cm and their bodies tend to be 3.5-4.5cm. So as far as wingspan goes I'd say he's the right size. :)

Yes, I think he is still lifesized but quite big for his species. But I've never seen a real one and it's hard to tell from pictures.
Just send me a message if you want him, I don't think he'll be sold any time soon.

Perhaps it's also because things like his wing bones would be thinner/smaller in real life so it's making him look "bulkier"?

I shall, hopefully I can get some extra cash sometime soon. :)

Is there any way to buy these? I would buy so much of your stuff.

Depends on what you want. I still have the bat and could sell it but I guess shipping alone would be quite expensive since I am from Europe.

I can handle a little shipping fee! How much would this little cutie cost?

Would 45 Euro (around 60 Dollar?) be okay?

It's the smallness that makes the pattern so laborious. :D I could make you a bigger one, that would be cheaper since it is much easier and takes less time to make bigger fingers/toes.
Take your time and think it over.

I made toes and fingers the same way, I sewed little stripes of fabric around thin wire. Sadly I can't make them as thin as I want to, so maybe I should think about using another technique.

I tried a similar method and it didn't work well with the faux leather. I think it was perhaps the materials. I need more experimentation with fingers really.

That's possible, with suitable material it's easy to sew even small fingers. Just don't try to turn them. :D
