Description

Giant platypus plushie for my husband’s birthday present! I enlarged the pattern by 200%.
The small one is for my son, it is not stuffed, but has a zip on its belly so my son can put coins in it.
Both boys are very happy with the platypuses.

also blogged here

EDIT:
I bought the pattern but I just found out that there is a free pattern for the platypus here: http://www.craftbits.com/project/plattie-the-platypus. It just needs to be enlarged :)

      It’s like a hybrid of stuffed toy and a pillow! :D

      It’s surprisingly easy to make.
      The pattern is free when one become a member of the website (Funky Friends factory), you can try making it too :)
