Jurassic World Plushie: Blue

I finally got to see Jurassic World last month and immediately following the viewing I was inspired to make Blue the raptor into a little plushie:

Some info about this plush:
- First time using minky - worked out really well for her small size.
- The blue stripes are strips of t-shirt material painted over with layers upon layers of blue acrylic. The edges of the stripes are painted white.
- The yellow/orange gradient in Blue's eyes was achieved by using a tiny piece of rainbow zebra-print fabric. 
- Her feet are weighted with beads so she can stand without relying on her tail to support her.
