 I had choir practice tonight I have made no progress at all on my Very Smuppet Christmas plan.
Oh, well!  There is always tomorrow night.  Also I decided I must sew myself a Vodka Mutini, another of lishlitz' amazing patterns.

So I'm a visual learner, I definitely have difficulties learning from books, patterns, pictures, the written word basically.  Therefore I tried to find a video tutorial on how to make the Smuppets, with no luck.  But after looking at the tutorial for a long time I think I figured most of it out.  I have so far cut out all the pieces and have begun sewing.  All of the pieces seem really small, I don't know if it's because my printer was set to the wrong setting for the patterns, so they actually are too small or if I would just personally like them to be bigger than they are.  Obviously I'm still experimenting with this first Smuppet of the Great Christmas Hoard.
 Smuppet one is a dark pink.  Pictures to come eventually.

Over a year later...

So I think it's obvious that I am not the most dedicated blogger.  But I decided to chronicle my adventures of;
The Great Smuppet Christmas of 2014!

Basically I have a personality quirk, that I'll say some random/crazy 'plan' that someone will tell me is random/crazy and that I shouldn't do it.  I then, of course, have to follow through, despite mental and/or physical damage to myself and others around me.

There being the ingredients of the following scenario.  I've begun reading Homestuck.  I came across the part in act two where Dave gets buried in Smuppets and I was talking to my brother about it, he's the one who started me reading Homestuck.  And I told him I wanted to make a bunch of Smuppets and bury him in them.  In fact I wanted to haunt him with them, he'd receive/find one a day in creepy/weird places all the way up to Christmas.  Where the climax of burying him would ensue.
He told that it was a stupid and crazy plan, it would be a waste of time and materials, finishing with telling me not to do it.  :^D

Thus begins my epic sewing task!

So I'll be making 26 Smuppets in all (one is for another Homestuck pal).  Plus one super special surprise for Christmas as well.  I'll start by making one to check that everything works out, then I'll do a factory line of the rest.  I'll be using lishlitz patterns from deviant.

As of right now, I have a large collection of fleece in different colors and I have printed the pattern out.  I think that's a pretty good start.
