Couldn't wait to share this fluffy fella with you!
This is Hugh Manatee, the recently released pattern from Lindsay Sews
. Lindsay generously sent him over for me to use for the FLUFF Drive
and I'm so glad I got to make a couple! They were a lot of fun and turned out so cute!
Mine were made from a blue-gray anti-pill fleece. I used pre-cut wool felt circles for his eyes, but you could also embroider them, use safety eyes or of course, cut your own from fabric. The sides of his mouth are stitched down to give him that pouty face of a Manatee. This is a large plushie and measures near 24" finished.
These guys got a good test squeeze from my Lil' Guy before making their way to our FLUFF Drive
pile. They totally passed the test too, just so you know. ;)
