Companion Cube Plushie by channellehazel Companion Cube Plushie by channellehazel
Finished making this Companion Cube plushie finally! Decided to see if it would make friends with the turret I made for my boyfriend but... companion cubes and turrets don't really mix well, I guess (NO WHEATLEY, THEY REALLY DON'T).

This took... lots of hours. xD I'd say maybe 30 hours of work? And it didn't turn out perfect or anything, but I'm happy with it, and it was made with love and that's what matters. :heart:

Please note: I don't want to make another one of these again for a LONG TIME. xD Not taking commissions right now anyway. Sorry. X:

Companion Cube and Turret belong to Valve (Portal 1 and 2)
Both plushies made by me! Turret belongs to my boyfriend. He also wishes the cube belonged to him too and tried to take it. D: But it's for my dear residential assistant (person who kept my dorm floor under control) from last year, on his request. He seemed happy with it. c:

Why did I not favorite this before? I do not know, and what an atrocious mistake that was.
I absolutely love the turret. Love it.

Tee hee. The Companion Cube is awesome and I think it's a great idea for a plushie. And I like how it turned out. =)
And it'll never threaten to stab you. That's important.

Thanks! No, not all of them. I only really hand-sewed them if I couldn't help it. I get embarrassed by my hand-sewing skills. :/ I'm very rubbish at it.

Dude. Your skills. Amazing.
Companion cube is so plush- I really want to hug it!
Okay, okay, forgive my horrible memory, but do you hand sew these? I forget, again. DDDDD: Some friend I am. :C

Haha, thank you. It's so nice to hug~ o3o

I do hand sew some plushies, but this one would have taken me like 70 hours if I'd sewed it. Dx It's like, around 8 inches on all sides and with every corner having those corner pieces, and every edge having the wee edge pieces, not to mention each side having the heart and circle shape on them, I mostly machine-sewed this. xP Had to hand sew a bit of it though (like, the last bits). I guess I just wanted it to look more professional, because I feel uncomfortable about my hand-sewing skills. xD ie. they suck.

But still! Sewing machines scare me, haha. But your work is great! The time you put in it- wow.
Handsewing skills suck- HAHAHA. It's a lot better than what the average Joe can do. You've got great pieces.

Do you come up with patterns for each plushie? So you won't screw up...?

:iconchannellehazel:
channellehazel Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
They scare me too. I'm always scared the needle will go through my finger again now. ._.;

Aw, thanks. I hope to keep improving through.

I do make up my own patterns, but I usually have to adapt them. I'm more likely to screw them up making my own patterns anyway. xD Because it's all just guessing, guessing, guessing. I guess it's better than totally working without patterns, which is what I used to do. Apparently I'm still not doing it the way actual technical sewers work, but I like the way I do it. Truth be told though, I'm tempted to try see if I can follow a pattern for the body of the next plushie I'm gonna make - eevee. Because I find that whenever I make critters with four legs, I sort of end up slapping the legs onto the side and it doesn't look like one nice, smooth entity. There's a way of sewing it so it looks like the legs are incorporated naturally, and I tried to guess off a pattern of someone else's to try get it to look right, but it didn't work so I just slapped the legs on as usual. But if I try to properly follow the pattern, theoretically it should work. So we'll see. More likely than not, I'll alter it to suit me and end up messing up it and wishing I'd followed the proper pattern, but that's the way it goes. xD

Sorry.. block text. o.o;

In the end, a lot of the things we do is guess work, haha. But that's the fun of venturing off into another media realm, huh? I'm just one of the more non-adventurous types.
And of course, if we follow along something, and we find that we could do it better, or at least in a manner that suits ourselves, it just may be to our benefit that we change the pattern up.

Block text if fine, haha! It just shows me how much you're enjoying this new medium! But, I guess it's not so new anymore, huh!
