BAMBI

Bambi has always been a person favorite Disney character of mine.  I have been fighting the notion to make a plush of Bambi.  It was an Etsy customer making a request of Bambi that has finally pushed me to make him.  The one that my Etsy customer asked me to do had his legs tucked under him to look like he was sitting on the ground.  I took the picture of him standing before I sewed the legs tucked under him.
