Picture of Ask an Engineer Ninjabot Plushies
You won't find them here, there or anywhere. You have to make them yourself because they are engineered to be open source ninjas.

As an unintended consequence of the change in showtimes of the weekly Adafruit Ask an Engineer webcast, Saturday nights are now free for more making.

Submitted for your approval, is the ninja plush cast of Adafruit Ask an Engineer:

Adabot, ninjabot of Circuit Playground

Ladyada, ninjabot engineer

Phil Torrone, ninjabot

and Becky Stern, ninjabot of Wearable Electronics

And what do they do? Anything. Because they can.

Step 1: It's the BOM (Bill of Materials)

Picture of It's the BOM (Bill of Materials)
These plushies were created from cloth remnants I had lying around from previous projects.

I had some felt sheets in white, blue and fabric in black.

I had some googly eyes( I always pick up an assortment pack at the craft or dollar store because you never know when they will come in handy and will always misplace the previous pack ).

Various colors of yarn.

A tiny bit of foam sheet to make the eyeglass frame, base of the EL wire bow, and Adafruit ninja throwing stars.

Blue paracord for Adabot trim and EL wire bow.

Fiberfill and any leftover packing foam to stuff the plushie.

You can sew this by hand but a sewing machine makes life easier and so does a serger.

A hot glue gun is helpful to instantly attach the details like trim cord and the googly eyes.

CAUTION: Learn how to sew.  Know how to operate sewing machines and sergers safely. Good scissors are sharp and pointy. Rotary cutters are even sharper. Even the cool temp hot glue guns are hot.

Thanks, it was a toss up between making wee ninjas or Domo.
