Futurama characters

My husband likes the series "Futurama", and once he asked me if I could make a soft-toy Bender. Why not? I did =) And that's how it looks:

"Bite my shiny metal ass" should now sound like "Bite my soft and velvet ass" =)))

Then we went travelling and bought a suitcase: simple and black. But how many simple black suitcases are there in each airport? You'll never find yours. So I took a brush and some paints and painted a Bender picture on the suitcase =)

It successfully survived two trips and still looks as good as new!

Then I continued making the characters, the next was a Hypnotoad!

Everybody loves hypnotoad. I felted it. The only thing it misses is a dreadful sound and the shape-changing eyes.

And the last Futurama-thing so far is a brainslug: soft, velvet, with wired antennae and three clips underneath for "catching" a victim =)


  1. Great work. Any chance for a brain slug tutorial?

  2. Thank you. Well, I can share a pattern and explain how to sew and make an eye and antennae - with no step-by-step photos though, but i can draw a scheme "how-to". If that will do - let me know, I'll make a post about that.

  3. Sure, that will do and will be very appreciated. Greetings from Germany.

  4. Hey, I've done the tutorial: http://blog.whiteracoon.ru/2010/08/brainslug-tutorial.html Feel free to ask if something's not clear. And good luck!

  5. Thank you very much for the detailed tutorial and the helpful drawings. I'll go and buy some green velvet today!

  6. You're welcome! If you have any questions - feel free to ask. And I'd love to see what you come up with in the end =)

  7. any chance you have a bender tutorial?

    1. Tutorial is doubtful, but I might have a pattern somewhere if you like. Need one?
