Boba Fett Amigurumi

Hello all, I wanted to let you know that I am finally finished with Boba Fett. He is quite adorable, if I do say so myself, and wanted to share the pictures with you!

Boba's going to pop a cap.
Boba being headless, like his father before him.
Hellooo ladies, look at your man, now back to me...
And that, my friends, is my Boba Fett. Now, he's going to be more gadgety in the coming weeks (i'm going to add the jet-pack, arm blasters and a gun holster). Also, I'm going to officially write up the pattern to sell, so if you're interested, stay tuned.

Boba Fett in the Works

In just a couple of days I will be finishing up one of my coolest creations yet. Boba Fett is his name, and awesome is his game. harharhar. Anywho, I've been working on him for a long time now; writing up the pattern as I'm going along. So here's what I have done so far!

The head is almost done, and his chestplate is not sewn on yet
The limbless Fett
And my most favorite part:
The jetpack is a total of 17 pieces and took 3 full 8 hour days to make. But, it's pretty awesome.
I hope to finish in 2-3 days, Wish me luck!

A New Dress Form

In an earlier post, I showed my Duct-Tape dress form I made of myself. The duct tape motif just isn't my style, so 2 days ago I decided I was going to cover it.
First I drew where I wanted the Seams to be
Then I patterned out the pieces
I got a little ambitious, and added a decorative stitch to all my seams :)
My sewing machine has a bunch of pretty stitches. So I decorated my dress form. Unfortunately it took FOREVER and had I skipped it, the project would've been done in a day. Sigh, my ambitious self couldn't help it. The extra stitching added a bunch of time and headache, but..... It's pretty stitching!
Sprayed with Adhesive and covered in batting
I used old quilt batting for the kushiness under the cover. I figured it would be much smoother than just polyester stuffing. Smooth? Yes. My size? No. :( 
Finally I covered it
There she is.
 To finish, I sewn all but the right side seam and I ended up whipstitching. Boy was that hard! I was constantly tugging at the fabric to make sure it was as snug as possible, but it ended up alright afterall

 YAY!!!! I'm happy that I now have a  working/useful dress form. There are, however, some things I would have done differently in hindsight;
 1) I should have used a more heavy duty fabric
 2) A slightly thinner batting would have been perfect.
3) The neck would be better in general
4) For the open parts (the armholes and neck opening) I would have instead of sewing the circles OVER the princess seam cover, I should have placed them under. It would have been a much prettier look.
5)The dress form is a size too big. I don't know how I could possibly fix it other than being extremely thin when you tape yourself.

Overall I'm happy that I got it done (on a whim even!)  I also had my first real run-thru with Princess Seams. (yay me). Of the whole project,  my favorite part was and is the redwork. It made me happy.

Now, after all my hard work, I have to name her. I have no clue. I was thinking perhaps Betsy or something along those lines? What do you think suits her?
