ET the Extra Terrestrial

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.
