I made this Boognish throw blanket for a friend. It is brown knit "velvet" on one side, with the Boognish applique in yellow polar fleece. The other side is plain yellow broadcloth. It has 1/4-inch batting in-between. The fringe is also the yellow polar fleece.

For the applique, I taped together some paper grocery bags and freehanded the pattern from a Boognish pic on a Ween T-shirt, then cut it out of the yellow fleece, then sewed it to the brown "velvet" with zigzag stiches.

It's not the most precise project you've ever seen, and it wouldn't win any awards at a 4-H fair ... but I have a feeling THE BOOGNISH prefers it sloppy ...



Stare into the Lion's Eye, and if you taste the candy ...


Come on, it's a beautiful night for a walk on the beach, wouldn't you say? Yes, I would say that, I would say that.

i had this bookmarked, but just remembered that i haven't commented! duh, silly me.

I LOVE THIS!!!!! like, lovelovelove this. you did an amazing job!

also, my boy is obsessed with Ween (he has a huge tat on the back of his leg and collects all kinds of Ween merch in our apartment, i could go on and on. he's obsessed, literally!) and this post is what inspired me to make some Christmas gifts for him that have boognish's stitched/painted/sewed on! i need to THANK YOU for the idea of this blanket and lots of inspiration!!

i love this!!  Cheesy

Hee hee. Thanks, everybooooody.

Did I mention that I broke down in tears while making it? Sometimes stretch velvet has that effect on people when they're trying to sew it using the wrong kind of thread and the wrong tension on the machine. Looking back, it was funny that a simple blanket could make me sob, but at the time ... I was up sh*t's creek with a t*rd for a paddle. That's no joke. P*ss up a rope.

I turned the excess brown velvet into a stuffed 12-inch-high domo-kun for my friend's birthday. This time I used fusible interfacing to stabilize the floppy fabric. Oh my gawwwwwwwd. So much better. I'll try to remember to post pix ...
