I don't know how many of you are familiar with the MOTHER series of games, but if you've recently played the Mother 3 fan translation that came out last month, you'll recognize this character:
I liked this minor character so much that I decided to make her into a pillow!
I've never made a pillow before, and I figured that since it was a simple square it would be an easy task, but it was actually a lot of work!
I also thought it would be appropriate to make a pillow of the translator (she translates for a guy who speaks through music), since the fan translation of the game is the only reason I was able to play it in the first place!
a tribute to one of my favorite enemies from mother 3! if you're not familiar with the game, the slitherhen is one of the chimeras created by the villains of the game. this one is (hopefully clearly!) a combination of a chicken and a snake.
Home Movies is my second favorite show. My favorite characters are Walter and Perry, but unfortunately I didn't have enough fabric to make them (you can't have one without the other, after all!) So instead of making them, I decided to make Jason.
these pictures were taken on my phone, so unfortunately they're super low-quality. His arms are supposed to be down by their sides, although in my opinion it's kind of hard to tell. ):
Herb and Hal met in prison and have been best friends ever since. Herb is the operator of the ferris wheel at the county fair. Due to a nasty prison fight, he cannot close his left eye.
I planned for Herb to be a regular plushie, but ran out of felt for his body. So he became a case for a DS Lite. Of course, he could be used for anything, but a DS fits inside him nicely. He is made completely of felt and is secured close by a large snap. Thanks for looking!
This was going to be a regular, full-sized plushie, but I didn't like the body so I snipped it off and made a cute little case for my DS. I'm also thinking of making some other ones for iPods, PSPs, cell phones, and maybe even laptop cases (although I can't see any serious laptop user carrying around a cutesy monster laptop case).
I added some fluffy padding so nothing breaks. Unfortunately I didn't have any zippers or Velcro handy, so I had to use those stupid snaps.
Meet Hacksaw Hal, the balloon-animal maker at the county fair. Hal enjoys Miller Lite beer and women who "keep an open mind".
I've never used a zipper before, so making the pocket and sewing it to the back of the suit was a real challenge, since I just guessed at how to do it. The idea came from something I drew on my notebook in class last week.
Hal is also the first free-standing thing I've ever made.
