Hello, I make robot plushies~

Commission status: Closed I was optimistic, but that was a mistake because I'm clearly going to be busy with the current commissions until the end of this year :C

Bobs’re coming along nicely~
The new pattern is working great, with the only problems being super minor and easily fixed :’D
So far, the only hand sewn bits are the spikes and the joining of the purple bits to the butt, everything else was done on the machine, so it’s super sturdy now~

I’ve written out a list of the plushies I want to make and uh… ….25 at the current count, and if I allow 2 months for each… rest in fucking pieces me

Edit: no actually wtf am i saying 2 months each, these are the ones I want to make cute chibis of, so maybe a month each around work I dunno

BUT STILL

New pattern means I can sew the spikes on to each piece as I go, rather than all at the end, which means I can sew them in a lot more strongly~~

(and it means I don’t have 4 hours solid at the end just sewing spikes on because that just kills me)

Are you using interfacing with the blue fabric or the fabric’s made like that?

Yup!

Minky has a one-way stretch to it, which makes sewing it a nightmare, and stuffing it a chore- too much stuffing and it’s warped to hell, not enough and it’s too floppy :/

So I use lightweight-medium iron on interfacing, and it makes it all a million times easier~

I recently found out you’re not meant to iron minky? Because it’s polyester buT AHAHA nah i’ve never had any problems so w/e

Is the spike made firmer with interfacing too?

(This is a genuine question but it sounds incredibly dirty!)

XD every time I buy more interfacing I end up grinning like a child

Aha but yeah, it keeps the point better I think? And would probably do so more if you used heavyweight interfacing, but I want him to be at least a little bit huggable XD

Edit- if you wanted it /really/ stiff, you could use buckram, which you’d want to insert after you’d made it

Tweaking Bob’s pattern, with the goals of fewer individual pieces, and less need for hand sewing
Basically, so that he’s sturdier and hopefully a bit quicker to make~

As modeled by Bob v1, from now on I think I’ll be using platinum instead of white for his super light bits, so it all just… works better? Is less jarring? I dunno, I just think it looks nicer
