Happy Birthday Viv,  I hope you have a really great day!
Sammy is a special order, she has been created as a birthday gift in memory of a much loved chinchilla called Sammy.
Sammy has been created using a combination of fabulously soft Tissavel synthetic fabrics, mini bear fabric and ultrasuede (for the ears/pads).  She has been filled with polyfill and a bag of plastic pellets sits in her tummy for added weight.  She has a nut & bolt double jointed neck and cotterpin jointed arms/legs. Additionally she has wire armature in her body/tail and all four limbs, including her individual fingers and toes for poseability. She has black glass eyes ringed with waxed cotton cord 'lids' and her nose and mouth have been created using perle cotton embroidery thread. Her individually applied whiskers are made from horse hair.
Sammy has been extensively scissor sculpted and lightly airbrush shaded for realism. She measures just under 8" in height.  Last but not least there is an Arcas Designs fabric tag sewn in under her tail.
