We’ve named her Trudi. Judging by her head-to-body ratio, Trudi’s a baby turret.

Features:

  • Authentic game dialogue
  • Motion detector, so it knows when you’re there and when you’ve left
  • Pressure sensor, so it knows when you’ve picked it up
  • Tilt sensor, so it knows when you’ve knocked it over
  • LED light-up eye
  • Exaggerated features for extra adorableness

I can barely hem a pair of pants, so I’m certainly not skilled enough to design and make a plush toy. Fortunately, I was introduced to Leigh Nunan; amongst other things, Leigh has created an incredible giant squid plushie that’s about twice as large as I am. Leigh both designed the turret pattern and sewed it together (which, to me, is essentially magic).
