Bamf Doll by bberry06 Bamf Doll by bberry06
This plushie is based off of Nightcrawler's "bamf doll" in the x-men comics. His body is made from velour (or the poorman's velvet as mom calls it), and his outfit is made from a synthetic (and very soft!) suede. His tail has a wire in it, and is the only part that can bend. The bumps in the fabric at the bottom of his face are really noticeable in the picture, but not so much in real life. The mouth messed up his jaw line. I'll hopefully figure out how to fix that if I ever have to make another one. Oh, and the red on the main part of his body is a little uneven as well, but that's what practice is for!

So moving on to how I made him:
I modified a teddy bear pattern for the body, used *BabyLondonStar's head pattern, and then drew a glove pattern based off an image I found on google :)

Head: [link]
Gloves: [link]

And I think that's it.

Edit: Here's a second attempt: [link]

I wanted to try to make this myself.  Now I'm sad that the head pattern is gone, I've always wanted this doll.

Thanks! I was hoping to find buttons that didn't show the holes, but I feel these worked out in the end.

Thank you!
You're not the first person to say that :) I may take commissions on them, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to sell them for under $40 (with materials, labor, and shipping), and I feel that's too high. But I shall think of a way to lower the cost.

You're welcome! Well if you do start selling them, hopefully I'll be able to get one! :)

I'd love to sell them. I made another one, and tackled many of the previous problems (be on the look out for new photos soon :)) I'm going to see how one looks in fleece, and that would make them $30 all together with shipping. I think that's a much fairer price for these guys.

Thanks! How did I make the tail? I stitched together 2 arrow shapes, then I put a piece of wire through it, and stitched that into place so it wouldn't move.
