My husband and I are big fans of the video game Little Big Planet, so when I found an official pattern (pdf!) (http://img.thesun.co.uk/multimedia/archive/00686/SKM49_2__proj_sackb_686954a.pdf) for the knitted sackboys in the game I had to make it up!

Next time I will use a smaller needle size to make a tighter fabric. The stuffing is a bit more visible between the stitches than I like. I'd also maybe knit it in the round if I get some DPN's. (Not a big fan of dpn's or magic loop but I didn't like seaming either!)

I used Knit Picks Shine Worsted in the brown shade of "Bison". He is so soft! My sister in law is totally in love and is begging for her own Sackboy. :)

For reference, here's a sackboy as seen in the game:

Oh he is so darn cute! I have seen these little dolls somewhere before...maybe someone here at KH knitted one! I was drooling then, and I'm drooling again! Your little doll is wonderful, and inspiring!

It's possible you've noticed them on tv if you watch it. I remember noticing them and the fact that they were knitted years before I had any interest in the game from the commercials.

I have heard the game makers sell actual sack boys as well, but a hand knitted one is so much more special... and cheap! This guy cost me maybe $7 to make and only a couple days to knit and assemble.

Very cool and good job.
I have a crocheted version, with the perfect open mouth and everything. He's movable and can be positioned like the gestures in the game too. I didn't make it though, my ex-bf's mother made us each one. We even have costumes from the game too. He's adorable.

Very cute. :hug: How do you do the zipper on something like this? Do you actually sew it in or just on over the top or something.

That is too cool! I am making another one for my Sister in Law and I am going to attempt an open mouth with some of the mods people are posting on ravelry. I will try and see if I can add some pipe cleaners or something to make poseable because she would get a kick out of that.

The zipper is hand sewn on. It was a bit tricky to do since I am not a sewer by any means but it just took some patience. A few people on ravelry knit it in the round and added an extra couple stitches and made them a purl indent and just glues the zipper on instead.
