11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia and his guitar Tiger on: December 15, 2016 10:28:50 AM
Another custom request. I just love all the random things people are asking of me this holiday season! I TOTALLY enjoyed making Mr. Garcia. I think I fell a little bit in love with that cool, quirky old guy. Smiley

He's 100% my design from the body to the clothes to the guitar. The grateful dead bear was hand painted.

Hope you enjoy!

I had someone ask me to make this as a gift for her daughter for Christmas. Well, she asked for a body pillow. In my head, this was what she wanted. When all of a sudden I panicked and thought, "OMG! I've totally run away with this! This is totally not what she wanted!" She assured me, with glee, that this was exactly what she wanted and she is soooooo beyond excited to give it to her.

This octo probably weighs 10-12 lbs with all the stuffing and fabric. I had a lot of fun designing it. I scoured pinterest for patterns but couldn't find one that worked, so I looked at how other patterns were created and i used them loosely for my pattern drafting! I then decided that he needed a sailor hat and an  eye patch. I also decided that he definitely needed veiny eyes lol. I'm not naming the little (big) guy. I will leave that to the recipient Smiley

I used a heavy weight denim with a fuchsia sparkly strand throughout and then minky for his underside. Everything painted was done with a combination of textile medium and craft paint!

I hope you like him!

I've been on a doll/toy/ornament making spree lately. The heads and snowman are ornaments and the full body guy is a toy to put in my daughter's advent calendar! I designed them all then sewed them and painted  them! I used acrylic paints and textile medium to paint them Smiley
