San-X Fanart - Nyanko Marimo Ball ver1 (rocks) by catfruitcup San-X Fanart - Nyanko Marimo Ball ver1 (rocks) by catfruitcup
ver 1 marimo (rocks)
ver 2 marimo (waves)

A Nyan Nyan Nyanko fanart plush based on San-X's character and my original design. Made with alova, stiff felt (leaves, shrimp), blizzard fleece, embroidery thread, felt (coconut), and 4mm doll eyes. The graphics for the lid and pink rocks are clear stickers I designed to resemble fish tank rocks and actual marimo kitsch sold in Japan. I couldn't decide which version I liked best, so I made 2! :) This one has 1 marimo and his little friend, a crystal red shimp.

If you like the plush in this pic and want to make one similar, I have a copyright-stripped version of the pattern available here (no cat, redrawn label; the rest are my own designs so I'm free to distribute).  



---------About marimo (from wikipedia):
"Aegagropila linnaei, known as Marimo (毬藻?, literally "ball seaweed") in Japanese and as Cladophora ball, Lake ball, or Moss Balls in English, is a species of filamentous green algae (Chlorophyta) found in a number of lakes in the northern hemisphere. A marimo is a rare growth form of the species where the algae grow into large green balls with a velvety appearance. Colonies of such balls are only known to form in Iceland, Scotland, Japan and Estonia."

------------
Nyan Nyan Nyanko is a character created and owned by San-X of Japan. I'm solely making [derivative] fanart plush for myself out of general enjoyment and never for sale.
