My boyfriend and I will be celebrating our two year anniversary soon, and he absolutley LOVES Little Big Planet, so I decided to make him a sackboy as a present. I used this pattern : http://img.thesun.co.uk/multimedia/archive/00686/SKM49_2__proj_sackb_686954a.pdf
Though I'm not entirely happy with it (I did the legs wrong and I don't think the white stitching is very good - I might unpick it and re-do the legs if i have time) I'm still rather proud so thought I'd share! Smiley

I was going to put a photo up on here, but apparently I have to post 10 times before I can do that (which gives me an excuse to do more knitting.... Smiley) but if you'd like to see then this link should work:




P.S this is my first post, so if I've got something wrong (posted in the wrong place, put up the photos wrong, etc) please let me know.

How cute! I'm intimidated by that pattern, I won't even try it!

It was easier than it looks. Just lots and lots of increasing and decreasing, but if you're confident with that its fine. The only really fiddly confusing bit was the hands, but just take your time and do it slowly step by step and you can do it! (and remember that if it all goes wrong you can always undo it and start again - I like to call this process 'reverse knitting' cos then it just sounds clever and not like you've gone wrong!)

Thanks for the comments everyone btw, I'm hopefully going to make it some clothes as well (I have to actually PLAY the game with him first though so I can see what clothes he's customised his with!), so I'll try and put some pics up if I do.
