Portal Turret Plushie
Deadly, yet adorable, this plush turret from the game Portal talks and responds when you play with it. It senses when you pick it up, knock it over, or walk in front of it. The stuffing and soft fleece skin make it super cuddly, too!
Inspired by Up, not North.

Trace and cut the leg pattern out three times in the black cotton fabric. Trim the legs to fit over the wire, fold in half, and sew as shown.
Carefully slip the stuffed legs over the wire. Sew the slits up around the legs, making sure to sew the ends of the black fabric to the inside of the fleece.
Cut out the leg cover pattern three times from the white fleece, and position the pieces on top of each leg. Stitch the piece to the leg through the center, working around the wire in the leg. Tip: When performing a running stitch, make the stitches large on top and very small on the bottom to minimize the appearance of the white thread on the black legs.
