Yay! Your Yarn Kirby is now full Epic! I hope that you had a lot of fun creating him and if you liked my design, check out my Flickr photosite where...
Oh My God, I am so so excited about this game! When I heard that Nintendo was finally going to release a new Kirby game for the Wii back in 2007, I was ecstatic! The Kirby series are some of my absolute favorite releases from Nintendo, and his platformer- based games are always extremely inventive and fun. And, when I finally got to see the new trailer for the game, Kirby's Epic Yarn, when it released online after E3, I absolutely fell in love with it! The design is so cool and the game play looks amazing! And, to top it off, the entire thing is set in DIY-esque world! AWESOME!
So, for this instructable, in my immense enthusiasm for the Fall 2010 release date, I'll be showing you how you can easily create the yarn envisioned Kirby character!
Before I begin, I want to give a Special Thanks credit to slamacow on Youtube for posting his amazing video on his own process for creating the original Kirby Yarn plush. This video totally inspired me to create a version of my own, and it brilliantly details the step by step procedure on how to create him.
Step 2: Materials!
Let's begin shall we? A lot of these materials can be found at craft stores (ie Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabrics) and are relatively inexpensive.
Thick Pink Yarn
Thick Red Yarn
Brown & Light Brown Yarn (of regular thickness)
Craft Glue (I prefer Tacky Glue)
Step 3: Download Template
First off, download this pattern template for the character. Then print it out on regular and transparency paper. This is the pattern we will be using to create our Kirby Epic Yarn plush.
