Madison's Sandwormie by tavington Madison's Sandwormie by tavington
So this is a custom sandworm for *OpalLynn's baby niece, so the challenge here was to make the sandworm a bit more "girly" without going overboard.

Using a selection of pink and purple thread, felt and fleece, everything here is hand or machine stitched, with no glues used at all.

I used a couple of embroidered butterflies on here too.
The fleece is striped black and powder pink , though you can't really tell as it doesn't photograph very well, but I assure you, it's pink!

THIS GIRL IS GONNA GROW UP WITH EXTREMELY GOOD TASTE (and hopefully a Burton fan too)

EDIT
I've had a few questions regarding sales of my sandworms, you can find the details over with my original sandworm here:

I've probably had around 14 on commission of these, so I have made quite a few!
I love doing custom colours though, it's really exciting to see how the colours work out!

Haha! I had an assignment to take a pool noodle and make a sculpture with it. I chose to make a sandworm. I named it Billy Bob. Don't ask me why, it just seemed like a suitable name.

.. I just lost the game.

But this is amazing! I wish I'd had an aunt that indulged me this way.
My mom wouldn't even let me get The Nightmare Before Christmas because she didn't like it, I had to wait until I could actually buy it myself. So Beetejuice was a definite 'no-no.'

Ah what a shame! I remember watching Beetlejuice as a kid and it did kinda creep me out a bit, esp. with Adam and Barbara at the end! But I actually loved Beetlejuice himself! I thought he was really funny!

I loved Beetlejuice too, and I always watched the cartoons--as soon as mom lowered the parental-guard. :)

Thank you so much! I can't believe how much people like these, ever since I made my first one back in January. The first one sold straight off and then I had to make moaar! 0___o

I love doing things like this, it can be a great experience for my sewing skills!

yeah I've only done a few pillows and an apron. But soon I'm gonna do a memory quilt. Not very experienced with sewing. Me and a friend took a class this summer when I was visiting her in AZ. it was fun.
I took a look at more of your stuff too. You are awesome

Aw, a little Beetlejuice fan :D My two year old niece loves him. Whenever she comes over she demands a bottle, her blanket, Beetlejuice on tv, and my "Big Juice" Beetlejuice doll to take a nap with. Glad to know she's not the only one. Too cute on the sandworm!
