My son requested a Dr. Blowhole (From Penguins of Madagascar) Pillow Pet and being the good Mom that I am, I made him one:
Here's what Dr. Blowhole looks like:
The tutorial is on my blog here: http://allthingsshea.blogspot.com/2010/11/how-to-create-dr-blowhole.html
Basically, I used one stuffed dolphin (cut in two pieces), one pillow and one gray chenille throw blanket cut to pillow size. I destuffed the pillow then sandwiched the pillow and chenille piece along with velcro tags to close it up and sewed them together. I sewed the tail into the bottom part, then restuffed the pillow. Then I added the head into the top and sewed it closed. The tute is much clearer and has more pics, but that's it in a nutshell.
