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)
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.
