The next animal that’s risen to the top of my pattern poll is a platypus! What’s not to love about these adorable guys? This Australian monotreme has the awesome mix of a duck bill with a beaver tail and webbed feet. The plush version has all the same details in a chubby package.
The pattern has a good bit of darts in the head as well as some curved sewing for the bottom. But what might take the longest is the top stitching for the webbed feet as well as the hand sewing for attaching the arms and legs. With all that in mind, I rated it a 4/10.
As always, the pattern comes with applique templates to make the face details. These will work if you’re sewing the details by regular machine or by hand. If you have an embroidery machine, you’ll find the embroidery files available for download here or with the buttons below. It includes the face with an applique patch in the middle that serves as the upper ridge for the bill. Meanwhile the bill and feet can also be sewn in the hoop.
I hope you all like it, and thank you to everyone that voted for it!
