Here he is, standing beside his portrait, and a few close-ups.
The details, all together he took about 10-hours to make, from cutting out through final stitching. Granted, the ten hours are pretty relaxed, breaks for kids, FB updates, movie watching…
I got a bit carried away with the beads. I hadn’t been to Northwest Quilt and Bead in ages and well, I was doing okay until they pointed out the drawers under each of the bead tables. Anyway, I stocked up and have enough beads for another robot or two, or six. I got the watch parts (his nose, mouth and two pieces on his chest) at another craft shop – the whole “steampunk” boom is great for gadgety things.
One more robot for my order. Too much fun.
