Robot Plushie


What happens when a robot that is hard as steel turned into a softie?

PEEK-A-BOO! :D

I made this lumpy robot more than a week ago using stretch polyester pants. The owner is my little nephew. I just randomly cut the material to make the body parts - two simple squares and limbs which to me is the robot's special feature. The hands was inspired from crab's claw & legs. The mouth has a small pocket to hide things ;). Even though I was eyeballing the measurements and pattern, I'm glad that robot turned out looking cute.

Finished size: 23.5" (height: from head to toe) X 9" (body width) X 3.5" (depth)

If you're wondering how I made robot give a 'peek a boo' pose, for sure nothing mechanical involved.....it's purely head pins pinned in between the hands and face. I made the animated gif  at Makeagif.

Here are more robot's cute poses:



"Say aaaaaaaa.........."
My lumpy back.
Lets do the robot dance :D


I've crafted something on earth day & I'll be posting a 'earth day inspired' tutorial soon. So keep on checking my blog.

Enjoy your weekend!
