That's so cool!  Grin I've seen stuff like this before, and someday I'll get around to making a walet or purse like it, although I would make most of the zippers open into different pockets...

Tutorial time! Yay!
   Okay, Im not really good at explaining things, but Ill try. Its basically a jordy bag with a flap, arms, legs, and most of the work is really in the details. Heres a link to the basic shapes to cut the fabric in, although youll need to change the size: http://groups.msn.com/evilgiggle/shoebox.msnw?action=ShowPhoto&PhotoID=7
1. Arms/Legs: Cut 4 pieces of fabric in the triangular shape and sew the long sides together. Then cut 4 circles out of the same fabric. Sew the circles to the wide ends of the cylinders. (Like in the duffle bag tutorial: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=3250.0, its harder because the arms/legs are pretty small) After youve done all 4, turn them right side out and stuff them with stuffed animal stuffing (I forgot what its called), draw the lines on them (I used a sharpie), and then leave them alone till later.

2. Cut out 2 of the body pieces from the outer fabric (OF). For the front one, cut out a rectangle of black fabric and satin stitch the lines on it with green thread, and then satin stitch the whole thing onto the front. Next to that either sew or fabric glue on buttons, and sew on Velcro near the top edge.

3. Sew the body together like you would a jordy, but also pin the arms and legs (facing inside) where you want them, and then sew.

4. Flap: Cut the flap shape out of the OF and the lining. On the right side of the OF glue/ sew button eyes, and on the lining sew on the other side of the Velcro, then sew the OF and the lining together and turn it right side out.

5. Cut out the body shape from the lining and sew that like the jordy lining, although because of the extra stuff (arms and legs, flap, etc.) rather than just leaving a corner open to pull everything through, I left open half of a side. Make the strap like with the jordy bag, too (although I made mine longer).

6. Finish sewing it like with the jordy bag, the only extra is the front flap, position it in between the OF and lining, facing the OF. Then sew around the top, pull it all right side out through the lining, sew the lining closed, and go play with your new robot friend!

Thank you everybody!  Grin it has an over-the-shoulder strap, and it took about..i dunno..3 hours total, although that's because I put a zipper in the back that I sewed funky and had to re-do. Also, since a few people asked for a tutorial, I started on one and I'll post it soon.  Smiley

I made robot bag for my friend's birthday, and decided that'd I'd post pictures  Grin
If you can't tell, in the last picture the writing says "strap" not "scrap" ^^;;
Th strap also has two stripes of the lining on it, and there's a back pocket  Smiley
