So, this is my first posted project here on Craftster! Woot!

Does anyone else have a friend who is impossible to shop for? Well, one of my best friends is definitely that person. Most years I have to tell her what I'm buying her before her birthday or there is a good chance she'll have already bought it. So I decided to eliminate that risk by giving her something handmade. And so the Wall-e plushie was born.

Wall-e is the second plushie I've made (um..  completed) and I'm quite proud of him. I made the pattern myself and sewed him by hand since I have an insane fear of my mother's sewing machine. Smiley

The pattern was made by cutting up paper and taping it together to form basic geometric shapes. Thankfully Wall-e has a pretty simple design of some squares and triangles. I put him together and he sat in my living room for a while in front of the TV. He was so cute I couldn't bring myself to take him apart!

The part that amazed me the most? His head actually stayed up on his neck. No flopping!

Here is a pic of my Wall-e "pattern". I'm going to claim the Pepsi can in the picture is for scale, but really its because I forgot to move it when I took the pic!  Grin
Sorry about the sketchy picture quality.

And a close up of the Wall-e logo. The letters are cut out of felt and glued on with hot glue. Which was not fun and slightly painful.  Undecided

This is amazing! I love Wall-E so much  Grin

I would never have thought of making a pattern that way, obviously it works!  I will have to try it next time I need to make a custom stuffie.

I'm sure your friend will love it!
