from the mini picture I didn't even realize it was plush but thought it was some sort of metal model

That's the effect I was going for, so that's awesome!

Thanks everyone, you're the best!

Added some new functionality today before taking it out for another spin.  A mad scientist's work is never done.


"Hey Doc, we better back up, we don't have enough roads to get up to eighty-eight."



"Roads? Where we're going...



...we don't need...



...roads."

Thanks for all the kind words! And phoenixfiredesigns, yours gave me a big smile  Cheesy

I especially appreciate all the comments about the details, as that was the biggest challenge! With my other plush cars I've pretty much figured out a good standard order for assembly, but the Delorean has a whole lot of concave angles which require being able to access the felt from underneath. So I had to almost completely re-think the assembly order at every step to make sure I didn't inadvertently block myself from sewing other pieces on later. Where's a mad scientist when you need one?

Thanks everyone!  Grin

Now I must admit this baby lacks the advantages of a stainless steel exterior, however it does provide a nice soft landing if you happen to travel through time and accidentally crash into things.

This is lovely, such a striking graphic design. The penguins have just the perfect amount of detail.

** ADDED: New functionality on page 3! **




My little plush tribute to one of the best film trilogies around. I still remember walking out of the theatre after the first Back to the Future--the first movie I'd ever been allowed to see without my parents--utterly blown away and wishing I could just stay inside and see it again and again.

The town square chase, Johnny B. Goode, the clock tower...sheer awesomeness, every minute of it.




But nothing was more awesome than that DeLorean.




Based off the original version of the time machine, the one we first see at the Twin Pines Mall, before any of the modifications were added in 1955 or 2015. I used screenshots whenever possible, pictures of toy models for difficult angles, and photos/diagrams of regular DeLoreans for reference.




My plush car designs are usually about 50-55 pieces each, and that's for plain vehicles. I don't even want to know how many this one took. The two big exhaust ports at the back took up 16 pieces between them alone!



^ The attachment points for the red/yellow/black cables running along the side are individually hand-tied 'cos I'm a dork



^ Here's how it looked before most of the car's trailing threads were clipped off.







The rear lights were done with fabric paint and embroidery.

The whole car's about 9 3/4" long, acrylic felt and stuffing, plus ribbon, embroidery floss, metallic cord and a few miniature buttons.





Eighty-eight miles per hour, baby!

Did you remember to pack your plutonium?

I love his eyes and the fact that he can color-shift; that's such a clever idea!
