Get ready for a blast from the past!  So, I decided to change things up a little bit for the 3rd Channel Changer.  Instead of the typical character shape, I decided to try something a little more complicated.  As a result, I am proud to present....The Plush GameBoy!!!

This guy ended up being a little more difficult, mainly because I kept it proportionally accurate to an actual gameboy...(I know, I'm a nerd).  But, I think it turned out pretty great.  I also included a plush Tetris "cartridge" in the back that I printed on fabric.  I can still remember the days where I would spend hours on end playing that game and I had a blast reliving those days while making this guy...enjoy!

Perry the Platypus!

Hey Guys,

Sorry it has been so long, but things have been pretty hectic at work recently which didn't leave me much time to work on the Channel Changers.  Nevertheless, I did manage to finish the first one and here he is (drumroll please)...

So, as you can see I decided to make Perry the Platypus from Disney's amazing cartoon Phineas and Ferb.  I started watching this show recently and it really is pretty funny and clever.  If haven't heard of it, you should really check it out.  I think he turned out pretty well after the 3rd version...haha. Anyway, being a professional designer I had to create a spec for myself to show what my design would look like...

Rise of the Machine!

Hey Guys!!  Well, the sewing machine arrived yesterday and I am really excited!  I read the instructions front to back (I know...I'm a nerd) and began practicing some simple stitches.  Honestely, so far it seems like a great investment and an amazing time saver.  I still need to learn to master some basic machine methods, but I think it won't be too long before I start creating the very first Channel Changer!!!  I decided to try a little simpler character to begin with and decided to give you guys a sneak peek....Enjoy!!
