Wow what a great video this is to make this plush otter. She has so many great ways to do this that I have never thought to do. The way she puts the pieces in and turns them. Great ideas. This is a must watch along with the tutorial. This is a cute little otter and any child would love it. What about you?

Thank you so much for the sweet comments! I'm glad you enjoyed the video!
