This is Merry and her little otter baby Eddy. They’ve been bobbing around in my imagination for a while now and I’m so pleased with how they turned out. They are one of those designs that ‘just work’. It happens sometimes and when it does it is so satisfying!
Being deep sea otters they’re a little bit chubbier than their fresh water cousins and have the unusual blonde colour to their heads that deep sea otters do…although you could make them any shade of the rainbow you wanted!
They’re made using a combination of low pile fur, wool felt and some shiny black glass teddy bear eyes although they come together nicely if you swap the fur for wool felt.
They’re available now in my Etsy store as an instantly downloadable PDF sewing pattern.
