Purple Pufferfish by FamiliarOddlings Purple Pufferfish by FamiliarOddlings
I think puffers are the cutest things! This guy turned out quite a bit more gaudy than my usual (and way more than I intended...) but I hope you guys like him anyway.

Needle felted the wool over a wad of stuffing so it's extra soft in the belly. Fins are ribbon and eyes are plastic stickers.

*About five inches long, including tail fin.

*Plastic eyes make the pufferfish unsuitable for very young children.

This is so cute and so. well. done. This puffer is very ... puffery! I don't have another way to describe it!

Really cute, I love how glitzy he is! Are those eyes the ones you can get from fishing stores for putting on lures?

:D I'm so pleased you like his "glitz!" Yes, the eyes are stickers for fishing lures. You gave me the idea to go there for feathers and when I saw the eyes, I was ecstatic. Have you ever used the lure eyes? I also have some threadlike feathers meant for tying and I'm not sure what to do with them, though there must be something cool to make...

Thread feathers sound like they'd be good for whiskers! No I've never used the lure eyes but I've seen them before, they looked a bit flat online so I never bought any but those look really domed so maybe it is something to look into! :)

Aww!!!  My family used to have a few different species of puffers and they were the neatest fish!  Such incredibly diverse personalities!  

I absolutely love this.  The colors are wonderful and do not seem gaudy at all.  The sea is such a colourful place and it is not hard to imagine a puffer being very colourful as well.   The roundness of it is so ridiculously cute and I love the little fins.  I also like the markings quite a lot and wow, those eyes are beautiful and match the fish so well!  

Wonderful job!:blackrose:
