My custom plush bettas are (too) often created in the honor of a recently departed betta fish.
This teal and fuchsia betta was created in the image of a real betta called “Ninja” by his young owner. His design is unique, with an extra band of red behind his front fins and an extension of his teal body fabric into his tail. One of a kind, and – hopefully – a close enough likeness to preserve the memories of the departed fish while creating a few happy new ones of his own.
I found this in the sushi-printed snuggle flannel remnant bin at JoAnn fabrics this weekend. Holy cow – I can’t believe how cute this fabric is. I just want to hug all the little sushis. Look at their little grub faces! This has to be a grub. It just has to. There will be a grub soon. GET EXCITED.
The grubs want me to introduce to you this very special featured friend: an Octopod plushie by Oopisnein!
Apparently Octopods are mostly harmless. Yeah, sure.
I love the fruit on his tentacles. I like to think the little faces have minds of their own and speak independently of their Octopod master. At least, that’s how it works when grubs are made of fabrics featuring faces.
