Xiao Bao by ShadowedPorcelain Xiao Bao by ShadowedPorcelain


Xiao Bao
Birthday: January 15, 2013
Height: 6.5 inches/16.5 cm standing


Her name means "Little Treasure," and she's the first plush I made upon coming back to my apartment. She's the second in my line of Itty Bitty Little Chubbies.

If you would like to make one for yourself, I am selling her pattern and instructions (please note me)

Thank you for your kind words. I was lucky that my fiance was willing to drive me from craft store to craft store looking for ribbons and such. I'm hoping to make my own charms and such soon to give them even more dimension

She is so soft. I love this new mohair as I've probably told you a gajillion times. I was a little worried because I wasn't sure how to do the face, and I wanted the panda to be a boy originally but after those eyes, no way that's a boy

How do you make it stand? Is it because he has large feet that allow to help balance? Also I love how well you dye, it's super impressive. (I can't dye that well it never comes out to strong, but then again I use kool aid on wool yarn...so I have never used a super dye XD) And as I know you are aware, she is super cute and adorable :D And you do make the cutest things!

:iconshadowedporcelain:
ShadowedPorcelain Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
It's a combination of how her feet are made (Mille will stand even though she has smaller feet), the way I make the pattern so that the joint locations are tighter, how I weight her, and how I joint her. I haven't played with kool aid because I like specific colors, but I have dyed with tea before. I generally use actual dyes when working with mohair though.

Thank you for your kind words

That is amazing!!! I'm so impressed and in a way jealous XD I can never get my stuffed animals to stand unless they have help being propped up. Understandable you, you need good strong colours for art :D You do a brilliant job!

And you're welcome ^.^

Thank you! I was scared I would disappoint because I didn't test this pattern. I went on what I knew from Mille and tried wider legs, different shaped arms, and a more rectangular head

Thank you so much! I'm happy to start off 2013 with a completely new style. Over the year, I'll probably integrate new techniques into it, and hopefully improve by 2014. I remember you saying you wanted to try your hand at plushie making. How has that been going?
