These 3 plush are my submissions for the annual Plush You! plush show in Seattle next month. Ammonite, Dia de Muertos Trilobite and Opabinia are on their way to a wetter climate!
Ammonite keychains. A little peek (a peek just because I was too lazy to document more of the process) of the creation of my new Ammonite keychains. I hope to carry these as constant items in my Etsy shop like the Eurypterid keychains. All of these have sold already, but hopefully I’ll have a chance to make more soon!
If forced to decide, I would have to say my Ammonite plushies are my favorite creations. If they didn’t take forever to make I would have an Etsy store full of them. Yes. I would. Unfortunately the pattern on their shells is all hand stitched which takes forever. There is a lot of pinning involved and a lot of anger on my side from constantly stabbing myself with said pins, but it works out in the end. All of my anger and pin pricks get resolved. I also have an affinity for extant tentacled species—octopus, squid, nautilus. Oh they’re adorable. So adorable. Can’t have those as pets, though. I know that’s a big reason why Ammonites are my favorite plush (maybe my favorite fossil too? not going to think about that right now).
