Aww, thanks everybody!

I think my next wow-related project will be a murloc, but I haven't quite figured out how to do it... they have those gangly little legs. Coat-hangers maybe??
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Stuffed voidwalker (from World of Warcraft) on: November 11, 2008 09:56:26 AM
A friend (and guildmaster) saw a stuffed voidwalker (from the MMORPG, World of Warcraft) on Etsy which had been linked from WowInsider. He was really sad to learn that there were only 2 available. Weeks later he was still talking about it... so I decided to make one for him, since I am the most craft-capable guild member. This is what I ended up with:



I had never even tried making a stuffed toy before so it was a bit of a challenge. Not to mention that the blue fur was a total pain to work with, and shed tiny blue bits of fuzz all over my apartment and INSIDE MY SEWING MACHINE. I improvised the pattern, although I would be happy to explain how I did it if anyone else is trying to make one of these for a sad guild master/boyfriend/husband/self. The voidwalker's "base" is actually a plastic cup from the dollar store, covered with grey tissue paper and then wrapped in some black gauze (and secured with about 10 cubic inches of hot glue). He can come out of it, but doesn't stand up by himself. (So you can demonstrate his attacking and aggro-holding capabilities, lol)

A close-up of his gauntlet, which was my favourite part to make:



The "jewels" are scrapbooking brads (dollar store again!) and I "mounted" some of them inside grommets to make them look bigger and more elaborate. It was a really fun project!

A few days later, my friend opened up free repairs from guild bank funds. So it was worth it.  Wink

I did sew the velcro on, yes. I have tried the adhesive kind before but never had muchluck with it--I find it usually needs to be sewn on anyway, and then the adhesive gums up my sewing machine. So the stitches do show on the inside of the bag. I guess if you wanted to avoid that, you could attach the velcro before doing anything else with the back panel, but that requires a level of specificity in measurements I would never even attempt Smiley

I finally got around to making a tutorial for this project. I put it up on my blog since that gives me a few more options for formatting and such. It's here:

I also have a printer-friendly PDF of the tutorial. If you want it, please feel free to message me on Craftster, I'd be happy to send it to you. I always get annoyed by tutorials that are online and hard to print... who wants to run back and forth between the computer and the sewing machine?

That's adorable, I love it! The oversized buttons and tabs are great.
Is the flap screenprinted? Or did you reuse it from somewhere else?

Thanks again for all your replies everybody.
I will try to make a tutorial or at least a better explanation of how I made this, and the shapes of the pieces. I'll post it this weekend, hopefully.

To echo what everyone else has said, I love this bag. It's so elegant. The handles are also really clever. I've never made ones like that before, but I'll definitely try it now. Thanks for posting.
