Hello! My own Nessie design. I'm pretty happy w/how she turned out, even though I suck at drafting patterns. The top is made from a smooth fleece, and her underside from a fluffy fleece baby blanket. I submitted her to this contest:[link]
No, I don't make these professionally. If you can believe it, I've never been able to sell my plushies, and I've been making them for years. But, I do have to admit, it's only in the past year or so, that I've gotten really good at making them. I'm trying to talk my husband into letting me use our shared credit card, so I can open up an etsy store. I'll see if I can sell them there. Well, the plushies I'm able to let go of that is Glad I could inspire you! I've really started pushing myself outside of my "comfort zone" lately. Trying more difficult patterns, and coming up w/my own designs. It's difficult for me, because I get frustrated easily, and want everything to turn out right, or how I envisioned it the 1st time.
