I realized that I hadn’t shown you guys the finished results of my first foray into making a plushie. I’m very pleased with the results, and just as I suspected he would, Luke uses him as a tackling dummy. He also smacks him with his light saber. Considering the rough usage, he’s held up amazingly well.
I’m still not happy with the legs, and thought they would’ve come off by now, but they’re holding firm. I finally got an upholstery needle and will probably re-attach them soon. I didn’t get them done until Christmas Eve, so it was definitely a rush job. Depending on my writing schedule I want to make him a junkyard dog for Easter.
He and his father named him Cuthbert, I suspect Whit chose that name because Luke sometimes has problems pronouncing ‘th’ sounds properly.
