Toothless plushie thing by ihni Toothless plushie thing by ihni
Yeah, like so many before me, I saw this tutorial: [link] by :iconkaty-a: and felt a sudden and unexpected, but very urgent need to make myself a plushie. I rationalised it and figured that I could make it for a friend for Christmas, but now once it's done, I'm not sure I can part with it. Him.

Anyway, the pattern provided was awesome, I only changed the legs (since I watched the movie again and ... well, wanted them like this in stead).

He's made out of wool (couldn't find any fleece) which was thick and difficult to sew in. Especially by hand, which was how I did it. Him. The only thing I made with a sewing machine was the wings. Because I can't sew straight. Which is the only reason why wool was good, because you can't tell that I really can't sew ... :p

Aaaanyway, his eyes are made from a greenish fabric, and the scales are made from some kind of more glossy black fabric. And they're glued onto him. With that ... paper-y/glue-ish thing that you put between the ... OH WHATEVER, I know what I mean!

*ahem*

Yeah. This is it. I haven't been feeling very artistic lately, but at least I have been doing something, even if there's basically no creativity at all involved. It clears my head. And it (HE) turned out pretty nice. I like him. :)

Edit: At first, he was called Murdock, but lately I've taken to calling him Vincent so ... I think his name is Vincent. Vincent Murdock.

Wow, I was/am going to do one, but I lost the pattern I had saved ^^;

Wool, damn that's a pain! I bought a few yards of this black glossy stuff that's an alright thickness and it's patteren so it looks like scales (I had to get it as soon as I saw it!)

Again, fabulous job! He came out really good :heart:

I put one piece of thread from each of his wings, and tied them to various objects in my kitchen. :p

=/ det är ok, det hade bara varit kul att göra nånting med dig för du är så duktig och kreativ och du ger mig massor av inspiration!
jag vet inte vad jag ska måla, det blir väl nåt ihop med Martin antar jag, vi ska filma och göra en sån där timelaps (när du fast forwardar och 20 timmar blir 2 minuter istället =)
det blir nog ballt.
men om det är ok med dig kommer jag gärna och hälsar på dig över en helg nån gång när jag kommer hem till Sverige igen, don't wanna lose you girl!
