1151  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Plush Murloc (World of Warcraft) update 10/29 with version 2 pics on: October 24, 2006 10:30:50 AM
Many of you may or may not be familiar with the popular massive multi-player online role-playing-game called World of Warcraft, (www.worldofwarcraft .com), but chances are you know someone that is. 

A fellow gamer named Bamatick created a pattern to make her own plush murlocs (murlocs are fantasy creatures from the game - more info about them at http://www.wowwiki.com/Murloc) ... her pattern can be found at the following website:
http://www.bamatick.com/gobi/plushMurloc/openSource.html

I followed the pattern and made my own plush murloc out of felt:



You can see all of the images in my photobucket gallery of the process (including a few more finished ones) here:

UPDATE 10/29: I've recently finished "version 2" ... a larger version of this, because I found that working with felt on such small limbs was a bit tough.  Version 2 pics are posted on page 2 - enjoy! Smiley
1152  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / On Making a Moose... on: October 24, 2006 09:54:33 AM
So I moved to Canada 5 months ago from the U.S. and due to immigration whatnot, I will not be able to go "home" to visit my family for Christmas while I'm waiting on application stuff to go through.

I'm a crafty person and I get enjoyment out of hand making gifts for people because they are more meaningful.  I've decided I want to make plush moose for my parents and grandparents.  I figured a huggable moose will be just right.  My problem is that I couldn't find a free moose pattern out there, so I set out to make my own.

I've made my own moose pattern and I've started working on it.  I'm making it out of felt and hand sewing it.  It'll end up being fairly small, but that's ok - this one is just a test run. 

I guess what I'm looking for is some help- I've never made a pattern before.  I don't think this is going to turn out quite like I'm invisioning.  Does anyone know of any free moose patterns that I could base this on instead?  I'm trying to go for the cutesy stuffed moose feel.  Here's what I've got so far:

http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o252/pinktoque/craftster/moose/making_moose4.jpg

And here is what my pattern for the head looks like.  I'm looking for suggestions on how to make this better - I'm having a hard time getting it to turn out right 3D- any ideas on how to modify the head to make it look like an actual moose?  I have a feeling when I follow through with this head pattern it's not gonna look right.

Thanks so much for all of the help and guidance Smiley
