This could possibly be the single most raddest thing I've ever made.



I was inspired by the cover art of Douglas Adam's The More Than Complete Hitchhiker's Guide which I took out of the local library.



It's a wee bit sloppy, but not bad for entirely winging it!


Back


Detail of appliqued face.


Lining material


Me modeling it!

I put some stencil plastic in between the lining and outside to strengthen it and it has a seven inch zipper at the top to close it. The arms/straps are attached with matching green buttons, again to give strength to them.
