Sammy the Red Panda Plushie by VesteNotus Sammy the Red Panda Plushie by VesteNotus
Half delirious with my terrible cold yesterday, I assembled a red panda to the best of my ability.

Coincidently, the glass eyes and noses I ordered came in the mail yesterday, so you're lookin' at a solid 5 hours worth of work in the P.M.

I'm VERY pleased with Sammy. He might be my favorite plushie!!

Thanks! the orangish fabric color I got was "Red Fox", so I made a leap of logic and thought "hmm... maybe it would look good for a red panda as well".

The brown color I was lucky to get a hold of, but I don't have a whole lot of it... *cries*

could you make a armadillo?
Reply
:iconvestenotus:
VesteNotus Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2007
I suppose I could make an armadillo... I'd have to find a faux leather (like raw hide leather) to make its armoured platting.
...maybe a heavy suede would do the trick.

what type of material is he made of?
Reply
:iconvestenotus:
VesteNotus Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2007
thank you!

he's made out of various short and long pile fake furs (imported from Canada, China, and Australia!! wee!!), glass eyes, and a glass nose.

...there are also little beans in his feet (like you would find in a beanie baby), but the rest of him is stuffed normally.

Looks very good. A bit "messy" here and there, but still OK. I will pretend he's having a bad-hair day! :P

thank you!

I'm so excited that I finally got all the fabric I needed! The orangish color I had ordered back in February... but it got backordered in China... Then it was mailed to my old address. Long story short, I only just got it on Sunday ( ^___^;; ). I was so happy to have it, I just knew I needed to make something cute out of it all.

*^__^* gosh, thanks!

for whatever reason, "working" made me feel better last night. I'm glad I made him and brought him into work today. My kids liked him enough to distract them from my clearly looking under-the-weather.
:-P

You're very welcome :aww: !

Just curious, am I overdoing it on praising your work ^^; ? I honestly feel like you deserve it, but I also realize that that kind of thing can get annoying, and I'll tone it down if it's bothering you... I mainly ask because I was banned from commenting on a very good plushie-artist's works because I was getting on their nerves with stuff like that and posting comments that they considered "spam" :cry: ...
Reply
:iconvestenotus:
VesteNotus Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2007
No, no! I really do love reading your comments! I don't consider it spam at all.
Sometimes, I feel like I need your comments to get me through the hard times, like when other people are being overly critical
*is not going to name names*

I'm startled that you were banned from commenting on someone's works. You certainly don't get on my nerves at all! Now, if you were commenting negatively and telling me that my work is crap and that I should cut my hands off to repent for using them to make such garbage... well, maybe THEN we'd have a problem. But I treasure the comments I receive. The LAST THING I would call your comments is "spam".

AnimeJunkie18 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2007
I guess I probably still most stuff like that too, but I try to comment on more specific things like by telling you or other plushie-artist's specifically what I like about their plushie :nod: .

VesteNotus Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2007
honestly, i just appreciate that you take the time to comment at all. I'm not alone when I say that any artist loves to hear feedback.

Although, I applaud you for commenting specifically about what you like about a work. That's a great way to go about commenting, and I sure hope more people follow in your footsteps!

aww :aww: ! I'm glad you like my comments :aww: ! Actually I have changed the way I comment on things a little since I was banned from viewing that's person's art ^^; ... I used to use more emoticons and post in all caps with stuff sort of like "OMG :aww: ! SO KAWAII!!" and that's what got on the person's nerves...

For the longest time, I thought a photo I had of a red panda was a photo of a giant fox. Someone corrected my mistake years later.

He's so cute! I would have gone mad working with the fur. That's the one thing I just don't do, because it makes my head go esplodey.

Fabulous job! ♥♥

actually, whenever i work in fur, i need to crack the AC to full blast (for some reason, I get mad hot when working with that fur) and I need to vacuum for the following 2 days. I swear, I think I'm allergic to fake fur now! hahaha

Haha, I hear you. I had to re-stock fabrics when I worked at JoAnns, and I thought I was going to DIE when I had to work with it.
