Let's start this off right.

I first got into crafting about a year and a half ago, when I thought to myself, "What is my life missing? What should I do in order to be happier and feel that I'm living my life to the fullest? Oh! I know! A little felt Voidwalker"! Although I'd been playing World of Warcraft for almost two years at that point, I had only recently started to really enjoy it, when I started roleplaying. My character was a warlock, and her Voidwalker was a big part of my roleplay. So, I bought some felt, sat down for a few hours, and hand-sewed my first little voidwalker.

Since then, I've made them for people across the country (At least, there's one in Hawaii, California, and a few here in Washington). They're easy little critters, and they'll always hold a special place in my heart as the reason I got into crafting, and the first of my many felt animals.

This particular Voidwalker belongs to a close friend of mine, but I borrowed it back to take these pictures. The original Voidwalker, named Graz'nuz, is actually quite sad looking in comparison to the guys I made later, once I knew what I was doing.

Those voidwalkers are weird. I don't want to be pampered with one of those.

This is adorable. I was looking for a Voidwalker plush and this is the cuter of the ones I've seen. Super simple and great design. Thanks for sharing.

I've been looking for Voidwalker plushies for my friend for her birthday and can't seem to find anything good. Any ideas?

Hah, thanks, both of you!

I don't really know where to get Voidwalker plush.. Mine are the only ones I've ever managed to find. I'm guessing people are afraid of selling them or anything for fear of copyright infringement, maybe?

If you can't find anything else, and you're interested in mine, Sarah... Maybe we could arrange a swap or something. So it's not -payment-, but just, you know, friendly bartering.
