The reason I adore Flareon I think is the Pokémon cards I have. The art always made him look so floofy and cuddly, There's just this little head poking out of this sheer mass of swirling fur. So I was determined to make the ruff nice and fuzzy. I'll be honest and say there's a lot of Flareon plush out there I don't like because of the way the ruff was done, depending on the technique and fabric you can really make the neck look like a giraffe's if you're not careful.She's made with Shannon's smooth minky in Tomato, with embroidered/appliqued eyes, nose and paw pads.
The ears were free-hand satin stitched, though in future I'm going to set up an applique for ears on Sierra so that it's smoother.
The pattern is my own and I'm pleased with that too- the legs are very chubby and the hips I'm very happy with. They're hard to see for all that fur now D:
