A Giant version of the squig I have previously made
After making a squig, I was asked by my fiancé to make him a bigger one! So I did, it was different to a smaller one, and I added a tail which I forgot previously.
The body fabric is crushed velvet (£4 per meter, 1 meter) and the teeth are felt.
We chose red because "red ones go faster!"
Tighten and stuff the squig. When the squig is a full as you want pull the thread tight and stitch across to make sure it holds.
I used a whole bag (cushion-sized) of stuffing, and 3/4 of another bag. some of this was for the feet later. I made the squig quite squishy (as per request), but stuff how firm you want it.
I then sewed and stuffed the tail. I sewed one side, then decided that it looked like a butterfly instead of a tail so I shaped it with scissors, then sewed and stuffed the tail.
After I had glued on the teeth (with just PVA glue, nothing fancy) I coloured in the "whites" of the eyes. I used a yellow sparkly paint because that was all that I had. My fiancé had a choice of pearly white, sparkly yellow, no colour or black.
When that was dry I painted over the "whites" with some glow-in-the-dark paint.
