Lumpy Space Pillow
Next to Bob's Burgers, which is awesome btw, our favorite show to watch for breakfast on the weekend is Adventure Time with Finn and Jake. On of my favorite characters from this show is Lumpy Space Princess or in short LSP.
I've been wanting to make a stuffed animal/pillow for our couch area in the living room for a while and since I bought purple plush fabric LSP was the perfect shape and colour for a first try at it.
I started by making a stencil in the shape of LSP. The shape is pretty easy to draw freehanded, I just used a picture on the internet to check how many fabulous lumps there are.
Cut out the shape twice (flip it for the second one so you get the exact shape on the same side of the fabric! I didn't do this andhad to use the not so fluffy side of the fabric for LSP's backside). Then you use a fabric of your choice for the eyes and the mouth and a golden/yellow fabric for the star on her forehead and sew these on one side of the lumpylicious shape. Above you see how it looks like sewn on from the other side.
I didn't want to buy stuffing, so I purchased a second hand stuffed animal and slaughtered it for its soft insides:
Isn't she lumpylicious? One of many beautiful pillows to come.
And what happened to the rest of the stuffed tiger you may ask yourself? Well, the future husband needed a new hat to show off his animalistic side.
This post will be part of Nina's Upcycling Tuesday and the Creadienstag.
