A little over a month ago my sister texted me and asked me to make her the unicorn from Despicable Me for her 22nd birthday.
I told her I would see what I could do, but I didn't think it would happen. So for an entire month while I was creating a pattern, sewing, resewing, stuffing, etc I let her believe that she was getting a gift card instead.
So here it is, the infamous Despicable Me unicorn.




My sister wanted a 48" unicorn, I told her she was crazy. The biggest stuffie I have ever made was my Sharktopus Stuffie which was a little over 2ft long. This stuffie has an 18" body and a 14" head and required an entire jumbo bag of stuffing.



The mane and tail were created by making small bunches of yarn and handsewing it into place. It was time consuming, but totally worth every minute.



I loved the detail that I was able to put into the unicorn, like the crazy nostrils and pink line around the muzzle.


Cute unicorn butt!



The thing I liked making the most was the unicorn horn. I had never done one before and I love the way it turned out. You can't really tell, but I used Metallic Gold thread to make the bulges and it adds that sparkle that every unicorn needs.

The reaction I got from my sister when she saw it and when she shook it for the first time and yelled "IT'S SO FLUFFY I'M GONNA DIE!!!" made all the work worth it.

I hope you enjoyed what I created.

C&C Welcome.

Love,
RobbinZombie

If you can walk you can dance; If you can talk you can sing
Art exists in many forms, the trick is to see all of them.
