I will hug it and squeeze it and call it Metallicar.
No. 6 in my series of stuffed toys.


supernatural impala metallicar stuffed plush



Because I just needed something to cuddle through the long, long cliffhanger summer.


More pics...

My camera refuses to take a picture of it, but I love the headlights, 'cos they totally GLOW IN THE DARK.

Look out for that truck An in-progress shot, just before I put in the last wheel. If I never have to construct another wheel well again, it'll be too soon.

There there, baby. Just hang on 'til Season 4.



In terms of complexity this one probably (almost) rivals the dragon. This one may have only taken me about a week to finish as opposed to several weeks, but replicating geometric shapes is really tricky nonetheless.

ETA:
Folks, I love love love the sweet comments you all have been leaving, you've brightened up my week (and cheered up the Impala no end). I am, however, making myself go cold turkey on LJ for a couple of days as I have a class project I MUST finish OR ELSE hellhounds will come after me So if I haven't replied to you yet, apologies, and I'll get back to you in a few days. Wish me luck...
Back now, thanks for being patient.


ETA 2: Pattern now available at my Etsy!


ETA 3: I sent one of these cars to the SPN offices. What became of it?

Wow, will you never cease to amaze me! :D I don't watch this show, but I have a friend who does, so I hope you don't mind my sending this link to her because she will emit all sorts of high-pitched squeeing.

Amazing job! Gotta love the Impala.

Thanks. And I love getting to see everyone's cool Metallicar icons, too.
dreamlittleyo From: dreamlittleyo Date: June 4th, 2008 05:01 am (UTC) (Link)
That might be the most fantastic thing I've ever seen! How did you even do that? *flails* Seriously, I don't know the first thing about making stuffed toys, but that looks absolutely MASTERFUL. Totally incredible!

p.s. you should totally crosspost this to spn_fanart. I think of nothing more fitting. *stares in awe s'more*

Thank you! Felt is a great medium to work with (if you're curious I can rec a book) and I was just coming off a DVD binge besides (I reckon I've seen less than half the total episodes). Maybe now I've gotten the SPN creativity out of my system and can start picking pins and thread out of my carpet :-)

A friend linked me - that is AWESOME! I love it! You must have the patience of a saint to make something so fiddly!
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: June 4th, 2008 04:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! I did curse at it a lot (fenders! WHY must fenders be shaped like that!) but once I'd started construction, I couldn't leave her half-finished of course.

Lovely icon you have BTW.
anakin415 From: anakin415 Date: June 4th, 2008 05:05 am (UTC) (Link)
OMG!

I sooo want one to squish on my very own!
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: June 4th, 2008 04:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. I think the Metallicar in all forms is irresistible.
sweetgirl7808 From: sweetgirl7808 Date: June 4th, 2008 05:05 am (UTC) (Link)

azinazelle From: azinazelle Date: June 4th, 2008 05:45 am (UTC) (Link)
wow that's amazing! I'm truly impressed. poor Metallicar won't be happy until it has Dean back in the driver's seat.
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: June 4th, 2008 05:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! ::crosses fingers for Dean:: Love your icon.

You're very talented. Now all you need is a tiny Dean inside... ;)
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: June 4th, 2008 05:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
Haha, I wish. Sewing people is totally beyond me!
sarah_p From: sarah_p Date: June 4th, 2008 06:10 am (UTC) (Link)
Okay, SERIOUSLY, that is AMAZING. You have some CRAZY talent! I have to admit, I'm a little jealous--LOOK AT HOW ADORABLE METALLICAR IS!

Awesome stuff, and I'm so glad you shared with all of us! :)
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: June 4th, 2008 05:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks so much! A DVD binge (I'm still catching up with S2) really did a number on my creative drive. This one practically demanded, make me NOW!
loco_lobo From: loco_lobo Date: June 4th, 2008 06:20 am (UTC) (Link)
OMG I TOTALLY WANT ONE!!! AHH AND ONE OF MY CAR!!! AND MY VAN!!! OMG I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO SEW!!!
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: June 4th, 2008 05:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee. Once I started sewing felt things, it was totally addictive.

If you're curious, I can rec a book.
beckaandzac From: beckaandzac Date: June 4th, 2008 06:26 am (UTC) (Link)
That's totally adorable and awesome. And I for sure understand needing something to cuddle this summer. Eep!
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: June 4th, 2008 05:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Eep indeed! Especially because I'm a total wuss when it comes to ghosts and gore.
marciaelena From: marciaelena Date: June 4th, 2008 06:32 am (UTC) (Link)
Man, that's so very AWESOME. ♥
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: June 4th, 2008 07:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks!

I like the word "Dean" in your icon (with the logo's pentagram). Did you make it yourself?

I keep ducking into my closet and shutting the door so I can see them light up.

ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: June 4th, 2008 10:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aw, I'm glad you like it! I wish I could make more, but it was a lot more work than I'd originally envisioned.
lupina78 From: lupina78 Date: June 4th, 2008 07:30 am (UTC) (Link)
WOW!! AWESOME!!! I wanna sit in and drive away..>gg<
You are amazingly talented!!
Can you do the same thing with a mustang??? *giggles*

ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: June 4th, 2008 10:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
And the good thing about driving it is...it's like a giant airbag.

Part of me would love to try other cars...the other part of me says it was a lot of work! Maybe someday...
fringelement From: fringelement Date: June 4th, 2008 07:39 am (UTC) (Link)
Dear lord!

That baby is epic!

The fact that making a plush Metallicar even occured to you elevates you above 99% of all other people, ever.
