Erm.

.

Ugh.

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

TA-DAH.

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:

NEXT STEPS:

  1. Fatter monster
  2. Add 2-3 more lights
  3. Reduce length of wires
  4. Close up Albert. (Yea, he’s Albert now).
