So my plan making a nice soft pillow didn’t go so well.
I used thin strips of felt and stuff it together with fibrefill inside the silk pillowcase to hopefully illustrate a nice hazy night scene of the forest (like the photo to the left).
But those stripes look like worms and I couldn’t make a nice composition because everything was too soft. And so I crossed that idea out and redo the design.
It looks like a cute ugly blob I would want to hold at night, so thus, the construction begins.
(1) I cut out the eyes and pillow case + sewed the iris to the eye.
(2) Positioned where I want the eyes to go, hand-sewed them on + took a photo for reference.
(3) Hand-sewed & machine-sewed the pillow case. Stuff the fibrefill in
(4) Work out my light
Look at him; he has a heart :’) –>>
What I like about this design:
Contrast between two fabrics is shown
What I think I can do better:
My hand-sewing & machine-sewing techniques. Be smarter with lights.
The Nightlight monster at night:
- Fatter monster
- Add 2-3 more lights
- Reduce length of wires
- Close up Albert. (Yea, he’s Albert now).
