I. Love. Your. Art.

Dammit you're good. You blow my mind a little more every time.
22  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Massive octopus plush! on: December 13, 2016 02:22:18 PM
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

I made this one an 'old school Christmas' calendar! This one is bigger. 16x16" made with wood I collected from the scrap like at a nearby hardware store. I like how the tree glows! And you can't tell, but all the big bulbs and the lettering are flooded with irridescent glitter!
