Plushie: Millie the Mouse (OC) by Avanii Plushie: Millie the Mouse (OC) by Avanii
A plushie of my much beloved mouse character Millie :heart:. Gosh this one was hard to sew, I literally made it with blood, sweat and tears, haha. So Millie here is possibly my most complicated plushie to date, with many tiny pattern pieces and shapes that made my toes curl, but at last, it is finished! :D As you can see it has been finished for a while now, somewhere in autumn. Didn't get around to posting pictures because of my hellish college schedule though. I just had to include the long hair on the head, I think it looks adorable. The tail and ears are made of my special floral-patterned felt, which is running out and I can't find it any more :C I'll save the last pieces for an eventual Benjamin plushie. I love it because it represents the way I like to draw rodent ears very well, ahhh. :)

So Millie here is 15 cm (6 inch) tall from head to toes, and 10 cm (4 inch) long from butt to snout (it's a little squarish because of the hunched pose). Her fur is made of synthetic fabrics in two different lenghts, the hands and feet are made of viscose and the ears and tail (with pipecleaner to pose) of patterned wool felt. Eyes are of blue glass and the nose and mouth are embroidered, as are the toes. She has plastic whiskers (originally fishing rod material). The scarf is removable and is made of my dad's old but high quality red woolen jumper. I cut it out of the sleeve xD

Photos and character are to me, Avanii

Please do not use or repost, thank you.

Thank you very much! :D The markings were tricky, should have thought of that before I designed her [link] :giggle:

Thank you very much, the face was a challenge haha, it's always the hardest part to get right ^^ Haha yes he does, sort of. I found this jumper, along with other useful clothing, in the trash (he was sorting out his clothes because of him moving out of our house, lots of clothes were thrown away) and me being a crafty person, I could think of much better uses, so I snatched them away :D

Ah, that's good. The "High-quality" made me worry for a moment xD
You're welcome ^^ You make me want to learn how to make plushies.

Haha, yes my dad is allergic/sensitive to many things, so he buys this high quality stuff. I really didn't understand why he threw it away at first, the fabric still feels like new. Then I saw the holes near the shoulder. Seems like either some bug got it or something else torn at it. A shame for him, very fortunate for me, hehehe xD By all means try it out! I find sewing to be very relaxing and the fact that one can create 3 dimensional furry things that weight nicely in your hand out of some pieces of fabric amazes me every time. If you get stuck somewhere you could ask me for help, I like helping people :)

I just ... Fabric and I, I think I'm allergic xD My mom is a professional textile designer, but I can't finish anything sewn for my life xD It always ends up in me shouting at everyone. I'm so impatient, and yet I can sit for hours with dremacatchers. :/
