A good friend of mine's birthday is a couple weeks, so I knew I needed to make him a gift on the cheap side that would still be fantastic. We are both maybe a little obsessed with the childrens' show "Adventure Time", and find Lumpy Space Princess to be pretty fantastic, so I decided to make him a lumpy space princess stuffed animal.
1. I have no idea what a 21 year old man is going to do with a stuffed animal of a princess
2. I don't care
3. I know she is not perfect, but I like her.
I used about 1/2 a yard of purple fleece and some black and yellow felt, as well as some cheap filling. All in all, this cost me about $8 to make, and I still have more than half the stuffing left as well as fleece and felt scraps that are big enough to use in the future.
It was a pretty simple process. I drew out her shape onto the purple felt, cut it out, hand sewed her face on, sewed and stuffed the arms, attached them to the body, and then sewed and stuffed the body. Her arms are pretty long because I wanted them to be able to cross in her typical lumpy teenage angst.
Maybe next I'll try a Marceline!
