Beep. Beep. I'm a LOVE bot :)

Haa < Peee > Furaidei. 

Beep. Beep. (Crash!)
(Hopfully not.)

So, as most of you have seen this adorable guy over at SVG Cuts FB page,

 let me share with you some close up pics of him - 

more so, his charming points :)

 What inspired me to make him was all the cool knick knacks that I have collected -

 bottle caps, spinners, metal knobs, various colored wires, wooden spools etc... 
thinking there MUST be something that I can make using those things!
 (I NEED to use them and PROVE that I AM USING them, 
or else the next crafty shipment that arrives,

 I know my hubby will give me that look...  j/k.)


Coming up with exactly what boxes was a challenge.  

There were TOO MANY options.
 Do I make his head round? 
Angled? 
Should he have legs? 
So, this one particular project is hopefully an inspiration to you -
 and feel free to change it up -

 give your own 'bot some personality and originality!


So...yes... back to his charming points.



He can raise his hand!

 Yep, this guy is full of tricks, isn't he? 
(The shoulder is attached to the body via brads, so he can even move his arm around to the back! 
Bet you can't do that!)

I must tell you that I've programmed him in with lots of love. 

Look at that heart meter!


Don't you just LOVE those gears

Mary made them for me when I told her that my robot needs them to come alive.


You can download them, too, over at the SVG Cuts blog 
(for free! Can't get any better than that!)

He also has mini screwdriver and a wrench with him all the time,

 in case something goes wrong. 
(which will NEVER happen, 'cause I made him well)

But, if that's the case, he's clever - 
he can fix himself!

His feet have 'weights' inside them, so he'll never fall from a slight push. 

You DON'T want a wimpy robot, right?



So, you wanna know what my BIGGEST CHALLENGE was? 

It was in writing this guy up to submit it in as my project. 
What to name him.
Seriously.
 I'm sure Love Bot has been used everywhere, 
but when I googled that name,
 it was definitely NOT the 'things' that I wanted to be associated with! lol.
 So... what would I call him? 
Mary from SVG Cuts, suggested to give him a name..
. but let's say, Thienly's LOVE bot... 
sounded worse to me. 
Kinda creepy. 
Then Leo kept calling it The Love Machine... uh huh... 
after all that discussing,
 I decided that it should be better kept simple, 
and no one else wouldn't think anything of it. 
(Of course, after reading this, you may!)

So, that's my project!

To make this LOVE bot - 
you simply need to pick up these files:


...and then head over to the blog for exact files used, dimensions and instructions.
(Oh, and you can download these GEARS there, too!)

Aren't they awesome?


Before I let you go - 
I've gotta give some LOVE to the newest kit that just got released today!
It's SOOO amazing!
I've wanted a WESTERN THEMED KIT soo bad.

Introducing... Happy Trails SVG Kit!
