I just spent the past couple months making this Cthulhu for my husband.  I made up the pattern pretty much as I went along, stuffed it with polyfil, and buried a cloth-stuffed paper towel tube inside for support.  The eyes are some very old coat buttons my grandma gave me (rest her soul . . . if she only knew what I did with them . . .  Wink)  The wings have craft wire worked into the edges so they stand up fairly well.  My husby's pretty pleased with how it turned out! 

What do you all think?  Grin




Edited to add:   Shocked  Wow!  I am so overwhelmed by the response to this . . . thank you, everybody!   Grin

To answer a few questions:

May I ask if you'd consider doing any others and what you might charge to commision one? Or was this just a one-off piece you did? 
It's a one-off.  The time involved would make it absurdly expensive to make and sell more . . . but who knows, I might change my mind at some point.

Is that a little label of your name on his foot?  It's cute--how'd you get it?

Photoshop.  Wink  Though I am considering embroidering a real one, somehow.

Il y a un monstre dans le lac, et il s'appelle Jean-Claude.
Mon ami le monstre sort du lac quand l'eau est trop chaude.
Le monstre vient au Lac du Bois pour jouer de la guitare.
Il aime bien manger les villageois et les monos bizarres. RAAAARAH!

That is so cool! Must say though, I don't know what a 'Cthulhu' is (but I'll find out!) -- I thought it was an Ood!

Now all he needs is a phone, so he can make...Crank Calls of Cthulhu! Roll Eyes Just kidding - he's perfect the way he is! I love him!

I'm not sure what is says about me that I can spell Cthulhu from memory...

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

This totally rocks... I especially love the way you did the eyes.
Oh, and "Now with more Tentacles!" is my new favorite phrase.

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.
