2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Jake the Dog on: June 28, 2011 06:20:06 AM


"Dude, be calmed by my saliva." Yeah! It's Jake the Dog.  I made this plush because I'm doing an Adventure Time-themed plush week on my blog, and who could resist to make Jake?! NO ONE, that's who!



I made up the pattern myself and hand and machine sewed his body out of golden anti-pill fleece.  The face was all handsewn out of fleece and felt.  All in all the cutting and construction took two evenings, which is not so bad.  Jake's arms and legs are stuffed loosely so that they can bend and wiggle and go all loopy, as Jake's limbs are want to do! His backside also includes a cute little tail!



If you missed them I have also posted plush of the Bugs from the Credits and Gunter from Adventure Time on Craftster as well. 

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / GUNTER! on: June 27, 2011 06:05:05 AM
By far, Gunter is the most evil thing I have ever made.  This cute penguin dude(tte?) is from the one-and-only Adventure Time!  



The pattern from this one was pretty easy to come up with, out of paper I cut the shape I thought I would need for the rounded-cylinder shaped body.  When I figured that what I had come up with would work, I then cut out the piece that would become the belly and then just went with it!



I used black anti-pill fleece, faux shearling, and various scraps of felt and fleece to make him up.  

I'm kind of thinking it would be cool to make up Gunter's egg from the Ninja episode (Gunter's Preggers!)... and his/her glowing feline progeny..?   But we'll see if I get the ambition, probably not.  Mostly, I'm looking forward to making an Ice-King-sized army of these little guys, it really isn't bad once you get used to the smell of penguin manure!



I'm doing a week of Adventure Time themed plush crafts on my blog and Gunter is smack dab in the middle of the week, stay tuned for more as I post them to Crafster as well! ^___^

Thanks everyone for the comments!  The first appearance of the mouse pattern is here: http://thecuteoctopus.blogspot.com/2011/02/project-bouncing-belly-button.html, it's quite simple!

Oh! and I'm actually working up a .pdf of the pattern to be released in the near future! Stay tuned Smiley

You might recognize them from the Adventure Time TV show, they are inspired by the little guys that crawl by under the credits. WATCH IT HERE>>> http://youtu.be/UnWDXrnquPI

The first is the bee.  I used a pattern for a mouse I created and modified it to make the bee body, added in his details, and stuffed.  I think my favorite part about him is his stinger, but don't worry, it's soft fleece! Also, here's a tip I learned while making this, when doing small details, like the legs for example, felt is not going to work, it doesn't have enough strength and will tear if any amount of stretch is placed on it, NOT GOOD. The best thing to use is fleece, but make sure you cut it in the OPPOSITE direction of the stretch, otherwise, when it is stretched it will curl and look bad too!



The next critter is the lady bug, he was pretty straight forward. I used half of the mouse pattern I was talking about earlier and then added a circle to the bottom so he ended up more like a dome than a sphere, and then added his details.  For whatever reason, I think that his legs turned out extra soft!



Lastly is the worm, again, I used that same spherical mouse pattern but made it much smaller and added a "shank" to make the piece more lightbulb shaped.  I then added a striped cylinder of fabric, closed it at the end, and added a face.  I wish I would have had some wire to make him poseable, oh well, you can still make him inch by using your hands!



If you want to see more I'm doing an Adventure Time themed week of post on my blog, I would love it if you stopped by and shared some of your AT love there too! Otherwise, stay tuned, I'm sure they'll appear on Craftster soon! Cheesy

I don't find it too terrible to hand sew, I hand sew most of my creations together (I machine sew some bits and pieces, but when putting it all together I feel like handsewing gives me more control). 

Do you mean that it is too hard to sew?  Or that it doesn't look good?

Personally, I think anti-pill is fine to handsew, this mouse is completely handsewn with no machine stitching at all.
