I have made plush lumas (the fat little star critters from Mario Galaxy) before, but this year while looking for a way to use up leftover fleece from other projects I realized that I could customize the plushies and essentially dress them up as other characters. Then the whole project really ran away with me as I decided to make them for Christmas gifts for all my friends. Oops. Seventeen lumas later, here we are (and I still need to make a couple of basic lumas for friends of mine who are expecting)
To take a closer look, individual photos are all in an album on my "crafts" page!
