This nightlight was primarily made for myself and others who enjoy the cute and humorous character that is gudetama. As you can see, I have used the LEDs to highlight the most important feature of gudetama – his derrière. He also has a heart tramp stamp because he has class!!! The plush provides a warm and comfortable tactile experience as well as some humour every time you look at it!

Everything about this journey was new. I used a soldering iron, sewing machine, hand sewing techniques, and created something I am really happy with!
There were a lot of surprises. I was first worried that the circuit portion of this assignment was going to be the most difficult, but surprisingly I found that the sewing and putting my pattern together took the most mental acrobatics.
If I had more time to work on this project, I would want to make the buttocks portion a bit cleaner by refining refine the sewing and shape.
