These are some plushies I made as Christmas gifts for my family and friends
The Ray one was for the oldest of my younger sisters. She is Ray's #1 fan, and she told me she wanted a plushie of him for Christmas
The piggie was for my dear friend, Julie. She loves piggies, so I thought she should have her very own piggie
The Lillith one was for my youngest sister. I have the impression that she might be a bit of a rocker on the inside, considering what type of music she listens to, so I thought Lillith would fit as a gift for her
The wolf is for the oldest of my two, young nephews. I thought a wolf would fit him, as wolves are brave and strong, but also sweet and loving creatures. And should he ever have a bad dream or something like that, a wolf would be great to chase off those bad dreams
The lion is for the youngest of my two nephews. He's still a toddler, and likes fluffy things, so I figured a lion with a big, fluffy mane would be nice. Also, like the wolf - lions are great when it comes to chasing off scary thoughts or nightmares
All of these plushies are handmade, and of my own design.
They're made of a super soft and cuddly type of fabric called "minky", and their hair are made from soft faux fur fabric called "luxury shag". Their eyes are buttons, except for the lion which has embroidered eyes.
Ray's hoodie was made using this tutorial: [link]
