pink felt

UncategorizedOlivia StewartComment

So this one time I went to JoAnns to buy some pink felt for a project.  The woman cutting it for me asked what I was making.  I wasn't exactly sure how to explain it but I said something along the lines of, "My husband makes games and I am making a prototype toy of his latest main character.  It is an eye with one arm and one leg and the toy has a slingshot feature to it."  So here it is.

I started with this toy that is currently for sale that you can use as a slingshot:

and turned it into the main character from Joel's game that looks like this:

This was definitely one of the weirdest things I have ever made.  You hook your finger in the pocket on the characters hand and then pull on the foot and release and it flies like a slingshot.  It felt good to work in my craft room.  I will try to get an image from Joel of the character so you can see it, but for now just trust me that it is a good representation!
