So my guy friend had a birthday coming up and of course I had to think of something good to make him, since I can never find anything good to buy people. And he loves Family Guy so I set to work on making something out of that deliciously evil Stewie.

I found a picture, and turned it into a stencil. And then came the hard part. Since I wanted a big Stewie, I had to cut up the stencil into six seperate pieces, print them out and then piece Stewie back together again. Transferred the image onto a large piece of contact paper, cut it out and placed it on my fabric (I used the "wrong" side of a nice denim I bought). Oh and I used acrylic paint w/ fabric medium, sponge brush...you know the deal.

Here's what he looked like after I was done stencilling.


(You'll notice in the above photo he's missing an eyebrow that he later acquired in the below pictures.)



And then later...Stewie became a pillow.





Some people seem to mis-judge his size so I say he's the size of a "small toddler". I believe he was about 2 feet tall but I forgot to measure before I gave him away. Anyways I was so happy it turned out awesomely. And he liked it  Cheesy

Thats is SO awesome!!! That is one lucky friend that you have!! Great job!

..And I am so stealing the idea of using Stewie as a stencil btw! I just recently reconstructed and old shirt to fit better [its a solid color] and i've been as a loss for what I could stencil on it. So thanks for the idea. Tongue

I love this pillow! So imaginative!  He's my favorite baby of all time - I'd have loved to be his sitter. So much chaos, so much conspiracy muahahaha
