Well, July is finally over and in that time I reached another milestone! I made it to 150,000 pageviews on my deviantArt and I’m holding a plush giveaway to celebrate :D Stop on over to the dA page to check it out if you haven’t already :D My store also got a small update with just a few plushies last month. I’m hoping this month will allow me to introduce even more!
I think this guy might actually be my favorite out of the bunch! I mean look at him ^0^ he’s so fat and huggable! This pun is a mix of Neapolitan (the ice cream flavor that’s a collection of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla), and Tanuki, the Japanese raccoon-dog that shows up in lots of fun folklore. So combined we have a deliciously striped little raccoon! I like to think of his magic leaf as a mint leaf to finish off the dessert :3
Assembling this guy is not too bad ^-^ If you’ve made plushies before the body is nothing surprising. The tail might be a little tricky, what with all those curvy stripes. I made sure to put lots of markings on the pattern so you can match up your pieces easily.
