Henry is made up of ten fabric pieces:
1) and 2) the front and back of his body, machine sewed together.
3) his face
4) and 5) his wings
6) and 7) his eyes
8) his beak
9) his envelope
10) the heart on his envelope
That makes him the Fairweather Friends plushie with the most parts (for now, anyway). He takes a while to make, as a result. But he's still my favorite and has kind of become a mascot of sorts for Fairweather Friends. In fact, he's the only Etsy shop plushie of mine that I own. Matt and I liked him so much that when I made the first run of Henry plushies, we snagged one for ourselves. He also appears in a slightly different position on my "It's Real For Us" t-shirt that I started selling this fall. For the last few days, I've been up in my craft room making as many Henry plushies as I can in time for the holiday shopping season! Look at all of these adorable little guys!
I just put 20 of them into the Fairweather Friends Etsy shop and they're already starting to go, so if you'd like to buy one for yourself or as a gift, you might want to do so quickly. I am planning on making as many plushies as I can this holiday season, but I can't guarantee that I'll have enough for everyone who wants one. Stop by soon to pick up one of your own!
Over the next few weeks, I'll be making more of my various plushies and posting little profiles about them as I put them into my Etsy shop. Keep an eye out for more soon!
