Phaneuf gets plushed!

This was part of Ben's Christmas gift this year- his favorite hockey player, Dion Phaneuf of the Calgary Flames in plush form. I had to do a lot of small applique pieces for this one, it was a bit hard on the hands, but worth it. It was a fun project, and I can definitely see more of this type of plush in my future. He measures 12 inches wide by 16 inches tall, so he's one of my larger plush- even this large I had to leave out some of the smaller details of the jersey, they wouldn't fit or read well.
