What have I gotten myself into? This is the creature. It is from a game called Starcraft. That is all I know.
Isn't he just stunning?

But he also sent me this picture of a stuffed one, so obvioulsy he is pretty flexible on just how accurate it looks.

I'm aiming for something in between. Here is what I have so far.
My materials. I'm not sure why I thought I needed green felt..... Not shown are my first ever pair of glasses. Apparently I'm getting older and I need them when doing things like sewing and beading. Oddly enough, I don't require them for reading.
The paper is my attempt at sketching out my idea. Did I mention that I have never made a stuffed animal without a pattern before? I am totally flying by the seat of my pants here.
I sewed up the body and have to say that it is looking pretty goofy right about now.
It still looks pretty goofy, but I can see it starting to take shape.
This is as far as I have gotten. My plan is to get those big spiky things on it's back today, then start embellishing it. I'll keep posting progress even if this ends up being a failure.
Thanks for looking! Pin It
