My very first stuffie project! I saw this on FutureGirl's website and had to make it! When it was done I wanted to keep him but I had made it as a present for my boyfriend. It wasn't too much of a sacrifice because I get to see it everyday lol.
I had never sewn felt before, so I wasn't quite sure what to do. So I messed around with the stitching until I felt (*groan* bad pun) I had the right idea. It definitely isn't difficult.
Then came Squiggy.
I used the glittery metallic DMC thread to do the visible stitching. It is pretty raspy and rough feeling when trying to pull the stitches through felt, I'd use regular embroidery thread next time. I added some beading for more bling.
This is a great little stuffie. I'd recommend FutureGirl's pattern to anyone. It is also VERY customizable! A zombie octo would be cute.
