A Small Infestation

Guys, I think we have a little bat problem...

I took a little break from comic character plush this weekend to make some little plush bats. (Although I still got all nerdy and named them after Batman characters. I have an illness.)

I made four each of beige, brown and dark grey.Each one has a different cotton fabric for the wings. I have a big stash and I think these little guys are a good way to use up smaller bits. They're only about 7" tall (not including ears) so they don't take much fabric and they're wee enough to carry around. I actually carried one around in my purse over the weekend.

It may be obvious, but I'll mention it. I have a thing for bats. I've always thought they were cute and super interesting. (This is largely due to the fact that I go educational presents like Zoobooks when I was small.) Like did you know bats are more closely related to monkeys than rodents?
Also, my boyfriend is Batman so I get to see them a lot while chilling in the batcave. He just complains about guano on the Batmobile.
