My father and I live in separate states, so we play World of Warcraft to keep in touch.  He had seen a teddy bear that I made for my step-sister's baby shower, and decided that I would be able to make a "Boomkin" for him.  (It's what the druids can turn into).  Now there are no patterns for them, so I had to wing it.  I think it came out great!  Please give comments critique.  Thanks for looking.

Basic shape:

I know, looks like a giant turd.

Adding the stomach:


Legs and arms!:

Not so turd like anymore.

Feathering the arms:

As you can see, the poor thing has switched locations a few times...

Ruff and face:


Side shot:


Close up of hand sewn felt antlers:

Those took a while.  I think if I make another, I will try something different.

Butt Shot!:


The happy recipient:


The rules that were imposed by the father was it had to be washable, large, and had to be baby safe so his grandchildren and future grandchildren can play with it. 
I used Lion Brand Thick and Chunky wool blend yarn, standard felt, and hypoallergenic washable polyfill.

I don't play WOW, (my brothers are addicted to Runescape, but most of my friends Warcraft) but you did an awesome job on the Boomkin.  It looks amazing, and cute Smiley

Thank you all!  I think I'm going to try my hand at a few other characters.  A few of my guildies are requesting their characters, so expect to see more soon Cheesy
