I hope everyone is familiar with Samurai Jack, if not...you are seriously missing out.
Anyway, I made this Aku softie to go with my sons Samurai Jack costume that I made for this Halloween. He is only 2, but he freakin <3's
SAmurai Jack so much its ridiculous; its like crack for toddlers. Anyway, I just thought I'd share. I'm going to post pics later of him with all his gear after we are done trick or treating.
A few details...I literally made this out of scraps around the house, you would'nt believe where I had to scrounge up the green fabric from!!!
-The body is sewn using a zig-zag stitch
-All of the facial features were glued on with Fabric glue and then hand stitched for security (the glue just helped so much, you have no idea!)
-The pupils, teeth & nostrils are all hand embroidered (its only been about 15 years since I actually embroidered anything, so Aku started out wonky & progressively got better)
- & I havent secured the eyebrows completely yet or closed the bottom, so it is temporarily pinned in the picture.
I hope everyone likes it! &HAPPY HALLOWEEN !!!
Let me know what you think
