For the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap, I was determined to make my partner a Headless Horseman plushie.  How, I was unsure of, but I was determined to struggle through.  And struggle I did!  Here is what my partner ended up with:


I've never made a stuffie so complicated and detailed before!  I'm not great at sewing or following directions when it comes to a pattern, so he is all of my own design.  His main body is made of fleece, because I wanted him to be not only terrifying, but terrifyingly snuggly!  His gloves and boots are a fake leathery material, and his vest a thin corduroy.  His cape is a silky polyester. 


Here is the back of him.  I cut out the cape and then used a flame to singe the edges to make it look ragged.


And of course he wouldn't be called a headless horseman if his head didn't come off.  His head is attached with velcro. 


Here's a closer look at his head!

Thanks for looking!

Thanks!  His shoulders got a little larger than I anticipated, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with how he turned out.  ^_^
