    Very nifty. Are they puppets or dolls? Did you make them yourself? Could you post some close-ups?

    I made them. They could have been puppets but I stuffed them:p Sorry about the photo quality I'm a newbie I just figured out how to post photos this morning.

    That IS a wonderful Sprocket. Actually, he looks a good deal more awesome than any of the officially released plush Sprockets I've ever seen! :) :drool:

    What I like about your plushes is that they don't look dead. They look really vibrant and Fraggley! Boober and Red are my favorites out of your collection. Excellent work.

    I didn't know Butterick did a pattern for Sprocket, COOL! :excited: I've got the patterns for Gobo and Red, but have yet to make them. I've made lots of stuffed animals for my Son, but haven't ever used a pattern before. I wonder, would you be able to share the pattern for Sprocket? If not, no worries.

    Your collection is amazing! Cheers,

    Beautiful craftsmanship! I sew and I can't imagine how long these took you! Just amazing, you can tell you put a lot of love into them as you sewed them. They are fantastic ^_^

    P.S. I love the Boober XD

    Hey lifelongfan, I'm curious about a couple things!

    1. Did you make these guys for cuddle purposes at all, or largely display?
    2. Kind of related to the above question, what material makes up the Fraggles' hair? Is it ostrich fringe? Because for cuddle purposes I could imagine that being pretty...hm, what's the word? Frail?

    The hair does look pretty nifty, whatever it is. Especially considering that most all the released plushes haven't seemed to know what to do about the hair texture :D Hee

    I would be happy to share it but it's so huge I hade to cut some of it then glue it to 2 pieces of poster board. Maybe a picture with the dimensions. I also would be happy to share the different heads I made for :coy::sigh::dreamy:

    Pretty much display because you guessed it the ostrich feathers are fragile especially because I used individual feathers and cut them up because I could buy them with coupons(I'm really cheap) I think the prestrung fringe would be alot studier.

    Thank you! Coupons for ostrich feathers?! Now THOSE would come in handy :D

    my local craft stores always have 40% to 50% off coupons and they are on my way to almost everywhere all my Fraggle materials were bought with coupons. It's the American Way :attitude:
