One Giant Stuffed Animal CreatureI don’t know what it is with us Soderborgs, but sometimes we get carried away. (See Mark’s very big hamburger or Drew’s giant nutcracker.) This s a stuffed animal I made for Drew for Christmas when he was about three. I used a pattern for a Halloween costume. I actually just found a picture of the McCall’s pattern which I’m posting here. I had to make adjustments to adapt it from a costume and mask to one piece. I think I had to create a neck. It was so big it was really difficult to get enough stuffing for it. We were pretty poor then. I bought some batting, but we couldn’t afford to buy all I needed. So the very inside of ET is filled with foam, old sock, and rags, clean, of course.
