My very good, lovely, oooooooober-talented friends are going to be an Auntie and Uncie to a lucky little person soon. That little person is in for a treat and will likely have an interesting wardrobe due to their Auntie's special talent of finding treasures on goodwill racks (see this dress). They wanted a mobile for their nephew/niece. A sumo one! Well, initially, they wanted a Samurai mobile, but that seemed impossible, however the very round sumo wrestler is a martial artist that is easily translated into plush. They already sort of look like plush dolls as is. I had so much fun making them. They look a bit skinnier than I'd like, but I'll blame it on Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign? During my research I found this photograph: very cute.
