Snoo! The Reddit Alien

Notice the Tribble creeping up on him in the upper left.

 

Made for Kevin, for his birthday.

 

White acrylic yarn, orange, and black acrylic yarn. Orange plastic buttons, black pipecleaner, multi-colored pony beads as stuffing for body/arms/feet, and more white acrylic yarn for stuffing for head, ears, and antenna. This great pattern is the best I'd encountered, and I followed it: scuzzbunny.blogspot.com/2010/03/reddit-alien-pattern.html

 

My only adjustments were the order I put things together and that I sewed the arms to the body in the back, so that they stayed at his side and still looked nice in the front (my sewing doesn't look great). I also tucked in the ends of the mouth into the head, but then used Elmer's glue to keep it in place. It might need a touch-up later, if he gets tossed around too much. I used the pony beads on the bottom half to give him some weight (he looks a little disco fabulous if you look closely, owing to the bright colors. I ran out of regular stuffing, so leftover white yarn is everything from the head up.
