The pixelated project is finished. As I've explained before, no pics of it on the blog because it's a licensed video game character and I don't own the rights. But I can certainly show you how it looks ready to be gifted. Here it is, all rolled up fleece side out and tied with a bow.
Both my grandson, for whom I made it, and my son are avid video game fanatics. I've kept this a secret from my son as well as my grandson, so they'll both be surprised. I'm looking forward to giving it to them next week.
