2  Wookie Plush in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by geekygamergirl on: January 09, 2013 07:37:52 PM
Hi everyone!  

So I absolutely LOVE making geeky plushies.  I hadn't attempted a Star Wars one yet, so I settled on a Wookie.  Here he is!

He's about 18" tall, and has an 18" arm span.  I used faux fur, polyfil, safety eyes and nose, and felt.  

I have had a few people asking me how I go about making my plushes, so I made a youtube video about it while I made my wookie, too!

3  My little Pikachu! in Halloween Costumes by geekygamergirl on: November 03, 2012 12:13:49 PM
My son is going through a huge Pokemon obsession stage, and told me he wanted to be Pikachu for Halloween.  He refused to wear his costume last year, so I learned my lesson and made his costume just a hoodie because he loves to wear those at least.

His hoodie began white, and I dyed it with Rit Lemon Yellow.  The ears and tail are polar fleece!  His candy bag (pokeball bag) was made from felt. Hand and machine sewn. The last picture is of him with his sisters, they were kittens!  I got their hats on Etsy, so cute!

4  Eevee Plush in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by geekygamergirl on: October 25, 2012 08:02:05 PM
My two year old is on a Pokemon kick lately, so I have been designing some Pokemon plushies for his room.  Finally finished my first one!

For size reference

And the little one with Eevee!  I think he approves.

She's made of a minky short faux fur, felt and 1" pile white faux fur.  I wire lined her legs for support and posing, and stuffed her with polyfil.  Only took two tries to get the pattern right, woo!

5  Button Jointed Plush Lion in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by geekygamergirl on: September 20, 2012 05:15:39 PM
So, I really hate hate having scraps of fabric I throw away and waste, and I also have come into a very large amount of vintage buttons that I'm in love with.  I also have been experimenting with making my own 3d plush animal patterns with instruction from whileshenaps.typepad.com/.  EXCELLENT site and has expanded my knowledge of pattern making SO much!  Any way, I decided to start off my animal collection with a lion using those scraps and vintage buttons!

It was important to me that since he had movable legs, he should stand, too.  So I stuffed him really well, made sure his joints were good and tight and it worked!  I'm really pleased with how he turned out.  Thinking about a giraffe to match.

Got my package from La Chapa today!! I opened it up and made an excited squeal, so my two year old came over to investigate and stole one of my plushies!  (Chased him down and got it back, though!)

I LOVE THIS!!  It's so adorable!  I'm going to make it into a pin and put it on my purse, then wear it when I sell at art shows (I sell monster plushies so... perfect!)

This is Blossom!  She's so squishy and huggable!!

The second plush!  My son already named her "Monner"... since he can't really say 'Monster' yet.

This painting is so awesome!  She based it off of a monster from my pinterest and she captured it perfectly! 

Amazing, awesome package!!!  Thanks soooo much!

7  Bride of Frankenstein doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by geekygamergirl on: September 07, 2012 07:56:44 PM
I had to wait a bit to post this because it was for Monster Swap 4 and I didn't want to spoil the surprise for my partner!!  Not all monsters are furry with fangs...

I used a bedsheet I got on clearance for $2 (because the seam was ripped out) for her dress, 15mm purple safety eyes for the eyes, and ivory alovasuede for her body.  I painted under the eyes with watercolor, and the stitch details I used a fine tip sharpie pen.  Her hair is Caron Simply Soft in black and white.  Enjoy!

8  Ultros Plushie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by geekygamergirl on: August 20, 2012 07:03:05 PM
Made this Ultros on commission! He's from Final Fantasy VI.

Polar fleece and felt, completely hand sewn.  I had to modify some 60mm safety eyes because I couldn't find the right color anywhere. The last picture is all I had to go on.

9  Monster Plush in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by geekygamergirl on: August 17, 2012 08:43:12 PM
Made this a week or so ago and I just love him so much!!

I just love his little pawprints!  He has 6 legs, so I call him a Spyster.

Here he is in the making

10  Back to School Puppy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by geekygamergirl on: August 04, 2012 06:59:57 AM
Made this for my older sister, who is a fourth grade teacher getting ready to go back to school.

I have a miniature one of these I use as a pincushion, and she liked it so I decided to enlarge the pattern and make her a plushie. I used a blanket stitch on the outer edges, whip stitch down his tummy seam and put her name on her puppy so no one would take him for a walk and not come back with it! Turned out so cute I'm going to have to make one for each of my kids now.

The pattern is free and the link to it can be found on my blog.
