So I challenged myself to make a giant monitor from Sonic the Hedgehog Some of you may remember the small 5 inch ones I made from last year, with a total of 18 designs
Well, NOW I CAN MAKE THEM GIANT!
This bad boy stands at a massive 18 inches high, made from high quality fleece and is filled with a mixture of polyester filling and polystyrene pellets for the base (like the kind you get in bean bags) and is surprisingly light for its size. It can stand up freely without support.
The screen is made from a printable cotton material, embroidered around the edges. The buttons themselves are felt and cotton, embroidered separately and hot glued to the screen. I can also make these on commission with sound effects. A small voice box can play the 1-up theme when the red button is pressed!
Available on commission to order! This is the only one currently in existence and is for sale. Please note me for further details. Please be aware of shipping costs when considering this item.
I made this for for when we hit America in a few weeks! (Being the Zelda geeks that we are, we're gonna have SO MUCH fun stateside walking around the Disney parks with these babies!)
As I'm taking my Majora's Mask backpack, she really wanted to take one too and commissioned me to make one, so I chose her favourite shield version from Wind Waker: Link's Mirror Shield.
Although the shape was quite tricky, it did come out ok in the end. The bird and Triforce motifs are embroidered on my machine, but guided through by hand. Every little turn and angle is judged by eye, as I do not have a programmable machine. As you may be able to tell, circles are extremely tricky for me to do, but other overall effect looks good.
-Faux duck cloth in royal blue -Royal blue zip and webbing -White waterproof fabric -Silver, grey and gold threads for embroidery -Forming felt for support -Polyester stuffing for the sides -Bias binding inside, hot-glued into place
I can hazard a guess you'll be seeing *Ubermidget carrying this around at the Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses in London in a few weeks. You'll probably see my other handiwork there, my Majora's Mask backpack and Skyward Sword Heart container backpack. If you see me there, please say hi! (I'll be carrying my HUGE Ganondorf plush, so I'll be hard to miss!)
