Plushie Instructable Robot - Preview 1.0!!

Here's how far I've gotten with the Robot that I'm making. Patterns are hard, ya'll! You'll see the arm graveyard in the pictures. (Including the one that turned out like a condom - no idea about that one. Very weird.) I went through a lot of different bodies, too, but those aren't nearly as annoying. The last stumbling block is the head - after that it will be smooth sailing! I'm working on that right now. Keep in mind that I'm making these pieces out of felt - it's cheaper for practicing. The actual plushie will be made out of fleece. Yay! And the body will be less angular, too. The shoulders should be more rounded. The ends of the legs and arms will be sewn into the body seams. :D And now... the gallery. Complete with evil kitties that are trying to stall the construction.

How is it going? are you still on the "rough patch" you talked about?

I haven't really had time to work on it in the last couple of days because I've been working lots of overtime. So yeah, still there. Sewing plushies is just so much different than a lot of other things I've been sewing. Quilts, pillows, pincushions, curtains - I can do them all! But a plushie is much more trial and error. :P

I hit a rough patch. I need to rework the pattern for the body. Very frustrating. But I want it to be really good!

You seem to be obsessed with your cats. That's just what they want you to do. Love them to death, and not notice that they are planning a takeover of earth. Next thing you know, they will be nurses and farm humans for disease experiments.

Cutest takeover ever! :D :D :D
That's not what you will be saying when you're infected with every disease in the universe.

I would just like you to know that I watched that Doctor Who episode and those cats were the opposite of cute. :)
Of course they aren't cute, they're cats!

Pfft. You wouldn't happen to be a dog person, would you? :P
