Finishing my undergrad with a degree in biotechnology, I had promised to engineer a friend one of the fox-squirrels from the Ghibli films. Until that time when I have funding and lab access to do so, I guess this guy will just have to do.
He's not a totally original pattern, as I got some help from
for the body and legs, but the rest I made up as I went along, noting the pattern so I can make more if the Internet / convention-goers so request.
Made from Red Heart yarn with Fun Fur collar and Sugar'n'Cream eyes, this guy is relatively soft and huggable, and just the right size to sit on your shoulder while flying on your mehve above the Sea of Corruption, calming wild ohmu, or scampering about with an old robot on a floating castle.
