Link will forevermore be my guinea pig for new projects I have never done.
He's about 2 1/4" long and 1 3/4" wide when measuring ear to ear.
So when I was visiting my brother last December, we visited a bookstore that had a book about making little felt plush animals. I thought it was incredibly adorable and bought the book. I started making ones the book showed how to make while doing small spin-offs. That's when I was struck with the idea to make Link.
I spent quite a bit of time trying to draw out a template that would work...translating a game character to a small felt plush is never easy...The hard part was choosing what parts to simplify or is even possible to attach on. The Hylian shield and Master Sword gave me the most grief in terms of being so small yet detailed.
So what do you guys think of a first attempt of a little character felt plush?
I'm putting up a process of sorts later so we'll see how that turns out Posted!
