2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / What time is it? Adventure Time! on: August 14, 2011 10:12:29 PM

My boyfriend's favorite Adventure time character is Jake.

For our anniversary, I wanted to give him something that would celebrate his favorite Jake moment: when Jake's got a cold and asks Finn to "blankey" him.

Jake's a pretty basic shape so there's not much to him.

His arms are flat with two snaps at the end (the blanket has corresponding snaps), and he has pipe cleaners in his legs so he's somewhat posable. Everything in the project is felt except for the lighter green on the blanket; I used fleece there just because I had a scrap to get rid of!

I didn't take a picture of it, but I also created a big white pillow to go inside his bed. The drawer bed was actually the most problematic.

I wanted to hand-sew everything, which is fine, but I also wanted it to be somewhat floppy so I just used double layers of felt. The end product looks better than it does in the pictures.

So here he is in his bed!

And here he is out of bed!

You can see a bit more of the drawer wonkiness in that shot, but either way- my boyfriend loved it and has given him a spot of honor in the living room. I was going to make a mini Finn doll but was tired of handsewing after this!

Amazing! I absolutely love your blog, too. Your so-called "Ugly" quilt? FABULOUS!!

edit: and as I was going through your blog I kept thinking "this work looks familiar, I know I've seen some on another site" and I was right. Once I saw your quilted horn suit on there I knew exactly who you are. Nice to see that you're still doing cool stuff!

Beautiful Bag.... I hear that her patterns are really complicated.. I am to scared to try. 

If I can do it, lots of people can do it. I'm a beginning to intermediate sewer. The only "tough" thing about the pattern was sewing through tons of layers. If you're patient, you can make a bag that looks awesome! Mine isn't perfect but I get compliments anytime I bring it out.

That looks GREAT! And I was inspired to visit her etsy shop and picked up some new patterns. I couldn't resist that Cell one. How cool!!
