Small Dalu is set to swashbuckle with her bubble-bead chargers- But not without the company of her two aquatic allies who rest safely in her sea-snail satchel! Patern and tutorial: https://www.instructables.com/Dalu-Doll-BIONICLE-Inspired-Plush-Robot-Toy/ Pattern created by tracing the outlines of the pieces used in the actual Dalu set, then contouring for a softy silhouette. Foam sheets were used for a mock felt test run (Pattern pieces in tutorial photos vary slightly- This was a first-attempt and later refined.) Wholly handsewn except the snail shell, no sewing machine required. Made from stiff felt, poly-fill, beads from my grandma, lycra and stolen-from-my-dad BBs as plush weights. She stands just under 5.5” tall and weighs 3oz. My total construction time: 29.5 hours Doll, swords, mask: 16.5 hours. Doll and mask bead application/embroidery: 7.5 hours. Sword bead application: 3.5 hours. Shell construction and beading: 2 hours. Small stopmotion of it all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zq6OCvbp1CY The real reason I finally attempted this: I got stuck on my couch for a over a week having allergic reactions to drugs intended to stop what seemed like allergic reactions, needed something I could do on a lap desk. ~Best wishes from Dalu and her dear fishes~
