Astrid the AstronOtt, stuffed otter going to Otter Space, handmade upcycled, stuffed animal astronaut

  • Handmade
  • Materials: fabric, polyfil stuffing, buttons, papier mache

Astrid is going to Otter Space! This little otter has her helmet and backpack and is ready for a science adventure.

She's made from a super vivid tie-dyed velvety corduroy type fabric, and her belly is a unique quilted textile created from layers of sheer fabrics with silver star-like sparklies and a looping pink stitch.

She's got a very expressive hand-stitched face with a lil faux leather nose, tiny button eyes, and sweet wee ears. All four paws are weighted and beanie.

Her little otter body is sturdy and firm. She owes her great posture to a tightly packed "body pod" core made of tiny scraps of fabric that would otherwise end up in a landfill. She's got a layer of polyfil in there too to keep her squishy and squeezy.

She stands up pretty well on her own, and has a removable papier mache helmet and backpack. Her equipment is made from junk mail envelopes, and some printing is visible on the surface, all very charming.

She's not tiny, but she is smol. She's about 12" (30 cm) tall, but she's heavy enough to be a functional (if not practical) paperweight.

Spot clean only. Though the button eyes are securely sewn, Astrid may still not be a suitable companion for very, very young chewy bitey types, and her delicate belly fabrics may be more susceptible to showing wear.

This listing is for one otter, with papier mache helmet and backpack. Rocks, planets, and moons not included. Some photoshopping was involved in certain photos.

Super, super cute! I m a repeat customer over the years because I love your work. He’s made of wild, flamboyant fabric and beautiful vintage buttons and is a patchwork masterpiece. His corkscrew tail is my favorite thing. Thank you so much for another perfect transaction! (Photo shows Leopold relaxing by the pool in Florida.)
