Griffin Plush by stephanielynn Griffin Plush by stephanielynn
Here is a Griffin for The Great Plushie Contest! A griffin traditionally is the front half of an eagle and the back half of a lion. I think the pairing of almost any bird/cat mix works.

He is from my own pattern, with some advice from :iconsandrabong: He is 18" long and has a wingspan of about 14 inches (stretched). His front is made from longpile fur that is increadably soft. His back half and underwing is from a faux suede. (I just LOVE his little paw pads!) His wings are lined with feather trim. I molded his talons and beak from plastic and then hand painted them. He has a wire from his head to his tail and down both wings so he can be posed. He will get a pin on his belly so that he can sit on a shoulder.

I love griffins............

Would you consider doing a commission of something like this but smaller?
