My Creative Space: ROBOT

A few weeks back Lou forwarded on to me a call for submissions for an upcoming plush event. I decided to get involved and since I last made robots for Vic- our resident robot expert, I thought I would ask her what she liked most about the rattles and use it as the basis for a giant robot plushie.
Of course his name is VICTOR and even though he has wheels he hovers just above the ground....

It is so nice working with felt, it is so forgiving, not shedding or fraying, every cut is neat, the colours are so great, I love it. I could have gone beserk with the dials and buttons....From antenna to wheels he is just over 40cms.
 I  actually have to give him away- that is part of the deal, so somone is going to win him....I will really be sad to see him go. I will let you how to enter to win him when I get more details. What do you think? Make more?
For more Creative Spaces pop over to Kirstys and get clicking.
