Aby-a-Day – May 2: More Jacoby plushies

I recently finished some more Jake plushies. jolteonjakeplushieC08335

This isn’t really my “dream Jacoby doll” plushie, but it’s a super cute, kind of cartoony Aby that’s really nice to cuddle.

Here’s a close-up of a back foot. I used real leather for the paw pads on all four paws.

The markings were done with a white Sharpie paint pen and Copic markers in black and dark brown.

This Jake plushie is a completely DeviantArt project, inspired by Clarobell’s take on Renegar-Kitsune’s Jolteon pattern (a Jolteon is a Pokemon animal), and the ears were made using Sakutarugirly’s awesome cat ear pattern.

A 360° view of the “Jolteon Jake.”

Jake seems to really like his not-so-mini-me.

They’re actually almost the same size!

I wonder what they’re plotting…and should I be concerned?

I’ve actually made a few plush Abys for friends…this green-eyed version of the Jolteon Jake went to Abyfriend Bernd in Germany!

This green-eyed Fella was made for Abyfriend Paula to match her boy Bowzer. I used the pattern by IsisMasshiro on DeviantArt.

Bowzer’s mini-me is Jake-approved!

I love the pawpads on this pattern so much. They’re a LOT of work, but they are so cute when they’re done.

I used the same body pattern to make these twins for Abyfriend Amy. The head is from a commercial pattern.

They are made of Minky with marking done with Copic pens.

Jake is NOT amused with them being in his bed.

Then I got my hands on the good stuff: Real German MOHAIR, just like the classic Steiff kitty I grew up with was made from.

I was a little afraid to use such marvelous material…but it sews like an absolute dream. I used a modified commercial pattern and I want to have a second go at it because I’ve already made some more changes I want to try out. I love this little guy; he has a real classic feel to him.

This is the head pattern I used for the twins above. You can see how a pattern can vary depending on material! He is jointed, his pawpads are leather, and he has glow-in-the-dark eyes!

Better get back to sewing…Angel’s posse needs more members!
