So! I'm really interested in making some of my Tamagotchis a cradle. Mostly for work.. so I can prop them up on my desk and avoid having to look down (mainly my Ocean) every minute.

I'm interested in what materials you used and how well they turned out.

I'm unsure on materials, but there's a craft store nearby, so I'd love to try making one of my own :)

For most handmade Tamagotchi accessories, I use felt and sew it using that type of sewing called the buttonhole stitching where you turn it insideout or something. I don't suggest using the thin fabric stuff, though, because the threads end up coming off and the thing you're making falls into pieces. That happened with a cover I made for my V3.

I'm not an expert at making cradles, but I put thick sticks for the bottom of my cradle. Since I have this really cool glue which is very good at sticking things together, I just stick the sticks to the felt. I sew it up a little to make sure they are in place. I can't post a picture because it fell and broke. :(

I think the best way is with polymer clay (it's clay that needs baking to harden and comes in different colors). All you have to do is roll it into a ball and then smoosh the tama into the center so that when you're done the tama will be a perfect fit. Then decorate (if you want to, you can stick jewels or squiggly lines/polkadots on with different colored clay) and bake it.

Or you can sew/knit/crochet a little bean bag
If that's too much work then find a hackey sack and empty out half the beans inside

Wow, that's a nice guide. I'm surprised I didn't see it before! Beanbag idea is cute, too, haha.

Thanks, guys! :D
I now feel prepared enough to make myself some :3
