I finally got around to making this style pillow. I offer the ebi in plush form too (extremely popular). I love how the stitch detailing on the tail turned out. It is for sale through my site at [link] for $25USD.
Browsing, I thought it was a plushie (small little felt thing = plushie to me), and I wondered why anyone would make a sushi plushie.... but when I took a closer look and read that it's a pillow.... >.> I want it now, lol. It looks cushy... and that's really inventive (and i sound like a hypocrite since I originalyl thuoght it was a small felt thing ^^UU). Bravo on the great job.
You'd probably laugh. This ebi pillow is made of fleece and the tail is felt. yep.....plain jane fabrics. Now the dolls on the other hand, are decorators fabrics. I get a lot of scraps from my workshop and use them of dolls. Those fabrics run $25 to $200 per yard.
