"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.

I made this guy for the Tim Burton swap, which has been sprouting tons of new topics over the last few days...
He is burlap, lined with cloth diaper (which I have in abundance around the house) so the poly filling doesn't spill out. The bug fabric was a stroke of luck - I found a little scrap of exactly what I had in mind in my quilting MIL's stash. The eyes are felt, and you can hide stuff in his mouth (I got this idea from Plush-O-Rama).
I turned lemons to lemonade when I appliqued a bug from the patterned fabric to a botch I made when I found I did not line the burlap up with the diaper well, leaving a bit of bare diaper on Oogie's left foot.
He was tons of fun to make, and I am going to recreate him in fleece for my kids (I can't imagine snuggling up to burlap).



I don't completely know why, but I'm really proud of him.
Thanks for looking!

I love this sooo much.
Good job improvising. I would've just freaked out.

Oh, I did freak out at first. I'm a bit of a perfectionist myself.

Fortunately I've learned to manage my rage, and once I stopped bashing my head into the wall, I came up with the improvisation...
