I've been wanting to make this adorable character from the PS game "LittleBigPlanet" for a while, I finally completed him yesterday!
SackBoy is made with brown flannel carefully double stitched and the zipper is in foam.
I must admit I had some problems creating him because of the fabric: flannel is more elastic than felt and I'm not used to it, so I had trouble making/keeping the shapes.
In fact I had to remake the head twice and even now I'm not entirely satisfied with it.
Of course we're also our own worse critics- my Beloved absolutely loves his new game related plush and thinks it perfect which is all I need to continue with my crafting (*smile*)
Since it's now officially Christmas season I thought it appropriate to make SackBoy his own felt Santa hat, which he seems to like.
Even Kirby is wearing one!
I'm not sure what my next creation will be.
I have to post-pone my projects to work on my Beloved's Christmas Presents from his Wish List which I'm still waiting to receive so I can get started.
So many things to do and so little time!
Btw when will they make "LittleBigPlanet" for Wii??
Note: I'll be remaking 4 characters from the "Xmas Plush Collection" for my Etsy Shop because my Beloved's adopted mother bought them yesterday.
Considering nobody here has showed interest enough to purchase them I don't think it'll be a problem...
