How to give health?

    Some time ago, a series of commercials with a wonderful character took place on television: the

    character finally and irrevocably fell in love with my wife and for me the question was finally solved - what to give her for her birthday.

    Negotiations with Wimm-Bill-Dan employees yielded nothing but promises of a future rally with a toy rally, but I could not wait for the rally.

    Remembering the covenant drawn in childhood in some kind of clever book - “a real man must be able to do everything”, I put the keyboard aside and picked up a needle and thread.

    Continuation of the story under the cut, carefully, pictures.


    Ideas should be implemented quickly, so on Saturday morning I rushed to the shops with fabrics and accessories.

    In the process of this race were purchased:
    • white fur, piece 80x140
    • blue fur, 20x140
    • two oblong buttons with legs
    • needles with threads, since I didn’t have any offspring in my hostel, and asking my wife would be suspicious.
    • Holofiber packaging for pillows.

    Carefully looking at the future animal, I realized that it looks like a hat in the shape of the body. The Internet helpfully issued a pattern of a hat, which I printed out, cut out with seam allowance, and drew a pencil around the inside of the fur.

    I cut out the details of the body.

    On the pattern it is written that four details are required, but the estimate showed that three is enough.

    Almost without mats, I managed to put the thread into the needle =) Sew the received parts from the wrong side with the overcast seam (I don’t know what it is called, but it’s easiest to sew the fur together - with the thread thrown over the top of the seam)

    Next, I put the body aside and took up the ears. I took all sizes from the bulldozer for exclusive =) I took the approximate proportions with a ruler from the image on the monitor. The blue pencil doesn’t write - we take a bar of soap, as a child I saw that they were painted on dark cloth.

    I sewed it from the inside with the same seam and turned it out, it turned out quite decent ears =) I

    stuffed my ears with holofiber, they say it looks like ice cream =)

    Next the question arose - how to actually fix the ears to the body. Sewing on top is unaesthetic, using buttons is not very durable. The solution was suggested by the roommate to make an incision in the fur, insert the ear there and stitch along the edges of the incision from the inside. The section had to be sealed with a seam in the middle so that the holofiber from the ear did not pour into the body.

    While the body is not yet full - sewed eyes. It turned out only from the second attempt, for the first time the right eye turned out below the left. The animal is already gaining its features, but so far it’s flat =)

    At the beginning of the topic, I wrote that the ancestor of the animal is a hat =) and here is the proof:

    The most difficult thing is to sew on the bottom. It is a circle of fur, the diameter of which is calculated through the circumference - the sum of the lengths of the lower parts of the side elements. To sew the “bottom”, the immunity was turned inside out:

    As a result, a small hole was left for the diameter of the arm for stuffing. Stuffed with holofiber and scraps of fur.
    image

    The hole was sewn up not from the inside but from the front side, the threads were hidden in the fur.
    The animal turned out a little higher in height than the sample, because in the pattern I did not take into account the bulge of the "bottom". But in general, I consider the work successful =)

    Based on the results, several conclusions can be made:
    - material costs are small, but labor costs are quite noticeable, it took about 5 hours to play with the toy.
    - even with a complete lack of experience, it turns out pretty well, the fur forgives a lot of mistakes
    - there are still at least three immunities left
    - the happiness of owning is priceless =) My

    wife is happy:

    And yes, the marketers will forgive me wimm-bill-dan =)

    And now, anticipating questions "and what does the habr have to do with it."
    I know that a lot of competent lawyers live here. So, I’m interested in the question - what is the punishment for making such toys (in the form of popular characters) to order for money? Which toys can be made and which are illegal?

    Thank you for your attention =)

    PS In order to somehow stay in the subject of the Habr - microcircuit:

    Xs what kind of microcircuit is it, but if it is necessary - let it be =)))
