Corny

Meet Corny!!



Name: Corny (Does anybody else feel like watching Hairspray right now?)  ;-)
Date of Birth: 10/7/2010
Favorite Color: Orange
Favorite Food:  Corn on the cob (Isn't that obvious??  Where do you think his name came from??)
Favorite Hobby: Trick-or-Treating (His best friend is Kandi so they like to dress up and go together.)
Favorite Song:  The Candy Man from Willy Wanka and the Chocolate Factory

This is the story of Corny...

Like I said yesterday, I really wasn't sure how I wanted to make my candy corn plushie so I decided to try two ways.  The first became Kandi.  Corny was a lot more experimental.  I wasn't too sure what I was going to do until I was actually working on him.  :-)

I ended up cutting a piece of white felt in the shape of a candy corn and then cutting the colored pieces out of felt and appliqued them onto the candy corn shape.  Then I used a blanket stitch to close him up.  I messed up a little bit at the end so there is a large space between the first and last stitch (eventually I WILL figure that out!) but overall I think it turned out pretty good.

 I did the same for his face as I did with Kandi.  I used black plush eyes and free-hand embroidered the mouth.  This one came out a little crooked but I decided to leave it because I thought it gave him character...aka, no matter how much I changed the stitches it wouldn't be straight.  So, he just has a crooked mouth.  I kinda like it!

Best Friends

I have a couple more Halloween projects planned to share with you in the next couple weeks.  After that I have to start getting ready for Christmas!   EEKS!  I should have started way earlier, but I really wanted to make some fun Halloween stuff, too.  Somehow I'll fit it all in.  :-)

See you tomorrow for My Morning Soundtrack!
