Hey guys, I decided to make Sackboy but with a sort of utilitarian purpose to him.  I wanted to make his zipper workable, but I thought it wouldn't be a good idea if all his stuffing and guts were hanging out, so I made a little pouch in which you can put little trinkets in such as a small note, coin, or perhaps candy.

The parts that gave me difficulty when doing it was first trying to make the open mouth.  It was my first time attempting the open mouth look.  I just took a circle and then sewed it in half down the middle to make a semi circle which I then crocheted into the head. 

The pouch I was able to make by sewing on a rectangle crochet piece behind the zipper inside the body.  So here he is!

You can read more about the construction at my blog post here:

That is such an ADORABLE sackboy!! I LOVE that his zipper is useable! It looks like a tiny pouch but it's better than no pouch. So creative! Do you happen to have a pattern for this? I would absolutely love to make one for my friend's birthday which is coming up. Thank you! Cheesy

Very cute!
My kids just saw it - they're both huge LBP lovers... I wish I didn't tell them about LBP2 - because now that is all they are talking about - about how long of a wait it will be before it comes out....  It does look cool!!

They're just some generic black zippers I got from Joann's I believe.  But I found some great silver zippers from an etsy seller called Rugrats: http://www.etsy.com/shop/rugrats, so I'm gonna make some more Sackboys using those zippers!
