What time is it? ADVENTURE TIME!
My husband doesn’t ask much of me craft-wise and I make so many items for others, so when he does make a rare request, I feel I owe him. Since we’re both fans of Adventure Time, the Cartoon Network show, hubby asked for me to make him Finn the Human. As Finn is rather flat, I elected to make him from felt. After a full weekend of Finn-making, here’s the finished product:
He’s kind of massive. I usually keep my felt projects under 12″ because that’s how tall a typical sheet of eco-fi felt is. In comparison, Finn is a little over two feet tall. No wonder he took so much longer than my other projects.
Now that Finn is done, he will sit on the couch with us to watch Adventure Time and Jeopardy while I work on his backpack (which he clearly needs, he has nowhere to keep his sword and other adventuring accessories right now.) After the backpack, I’ll have to figure out how to make Jake the Dog out of felt.
