Lifesize Australian Shepherd Plush

By WhittyKitty
It's finally finished! I've actually still got work in progress photos scheduled to post until next week on my tumblr ( whittykittyplushies.tumblr.com… ) if you want to watch it come together. But I just couldn't wait to post the finished result.

Also, if you'd like to see more photos of this pup, check the link >

He measures a total of 39 inches, from paw tip to paw tip. Created mostly from a variety of high quality faux furs, and a few different faux leathers.

All paw pads are are individually sewn on and stuffed, for a realistic squishy look and feel. Includes dew toes. Every toe has a little stuffed claw.

The nose is also a sewn and stuffed plush piece, as is every single tooth. The hardest part about this pattern was creating actual lips that can be pulled back to reveal the top teeth, so that the top row of teeth can remain hidden normally for a friendly look.

Paws and belly are lightly filled with plastic pellets to add weight, and otherwise this plush is somewhat lightly stuffed to provide lots of flop and cuddle.

Overall, very pleased with this pattern! I've kept every piece so it can be customized for future commissions.

Breathtaking work!
I would be highly interested in knowing where you sourced the blue merle fabric, or if you airbrushed it.

This is so amazing! I've always wanted to try a plush with an open mouth, but you blew it out of the park! The paws are incredible as well. That all looks like a ton of work, but totally worth it!

Love how you went through the trouble to sew the teeth and all the incredible detailing of the mouth. Your pawpads look absolutely gorgeous as well! Awesome work! :D
