Let's go Robo.
My saucy young nephew Emmett turned a major 5 years old. I decided, that if I made a doll for his sister, I should do something similar but more stereotypically "boy" for him. I was inspired by the stuffed robots I has seen here and there out in the craft blogs.. so I tried my hand at it. His birthday party was a space theme..so I felt it was delightfully appropo.
My robot ( dubbed Zip Uno Uno in his native language of Binary) is constructed of wool felt with cotton arms and legs.He was finished with random findings, stuffed up and now resides in the capable hands of his new robo master. Thanks to Jess Hutch and Hillary Lang for their inspiring work. My attempt is not as beautiful, but he sure was fun to make.
and with cheesy vibrato, please sing along with me now...
"Domo Arrigato Mr. Roboto."
