I’m experimenting with a few things on my blog, so if you’re a Facebook friend of mine, then you probably already saw this. And if you’re a Starcraft player, then you probably know what this thing is below.
I’ve always considered myself to be fairly crafty, but I’ve been feeling super crafty this year and the Overlord was by far the hardest project I’ve ever done. Partly because I winged the entire template, and partly because I tackled this baby as my second sewing project. Looking back, there are a lot of things I could have done to make it look way better. I kind of blame the fact that I couldn’t find the right color felt for the detailing, so I used normal fabric, but I could have tried a different color scheme. Oh wells. If anyone wants to know how they can make this for themselves, I sadly don’t have a template available, but I can let you know what you will need.
- Dark purple fabric (for the body)
- Light purple felt (for the ears, side and front detailing)
- Black felt (for the eyes)
- Buttons to attach the 8 tentacles
- A lot of stuffing
When I can’t buy what I need to buy, I usually end up making it. But when I make things, I always give it away. I’m sure one day, I will start making things to keep. hurlurlurhurlur.
