Last week, I got it in my head to buy a pretty little bobble for my friend Cat, who hasn't been feeling well lately. I went to etsy and looked up different cute Cthulhu items, when I saw a listing for a Cthulhu quilt. Without meaning to disparage that quilter's efforts, I thought to myself, "I could do something better than that!" So, I decided that I needed to.
I pulled out my green fabric and thought about what else I needed. I stopped by Goodwill to look for some kind of fuzzy blanket for the backing. At first, I found a nice red fleece blanket, but then I decided to take a look at the bathrobes, just in case there was something there that would be even better.
What I found was beyond my best wishes! There was a perfect bathrobe: pink, fuzzy, and just the right size.
|Fits perfectly! Sorta.|
|The back panel is big enough!|
|See how soft and fuzzy?|
|Mr. Bob, for scale.|
|The rough idea.|
|It's not Cthulhu without wings.|
|Cut and ready to go.|
|This is why I buy colorful sheets when I find them.|
|Ready to go.|
I cut on section of the tentacles out of the same green as the Cthulhu front, but the back section out of a slightly lighter shade of green.
|Finished front panel.|
|Finished back panel.|
And then, voilá! Done!
|Wrapped up pretty.|
