A tartan "Nessie" Ruggle by Bewhiskered!
It's a stuffed animal.  It's a security blanket.  It's just plain awesome!
"Something's Fishy" Mermaid and fish in love
1" glass art pendant from Krissi's Art Studio
Kenzie Jardina, creator of the Ruggle security blanket and Bewhiskered blankets has been a fixture in the DIY scene for some time.  She started making Ruggles when she had her first son, several years back - she initially wanted a baby rug with personality, but then wanted something a little more portable and toddler friendly as he started to grow up.  The very first Ruggle (a tiger) was born!  Even though I don't have kids of my own, I've known about Bewhiskered through the DIY community (we're a tight-knit bunch) and through my friends who do have kids.  Recently though, I started thinking about getting a Ruggle for myself (realizing, of course, that either the cats or my Jack Russell Terrier, Abby, would ultimately take possession of it).  Did you, my geeky commrades, know that she makes a line of Ruggles that are strictly mythical creatures?  In today's world, we all need a little extra feeling of security, wouldn't you say? 

The "Nessie" Ruggle is made of a high quality, super soft wool tartan (Watson Clan) with a super soft slate gray fleece belly.  Her navy blue eyes are appliqued on and are also fleece.  Her body contains quilt batting and her head is stuffed with fiberfill and can be used as a small pillow (or as a full pillow for a small head).  She measures approximately 17" across and is 35" from the tip of her snout to the end of her tail.
To round out the Stupendous Sea Creatures giveaway, I'm including a handmade glass and resin 1" pendant with my mermaid and fish image, "Something's Fishy" to ride along with Nessie on the way to your home.
