I’ve really been enjoying making felt plushies lately. Something I really ought not to be spending all my time on at the moment as I have Uni work to do, but let’s pretend that’s not a problem for a moment. A couple of days ago I thought I’d have a go at creating a Purple Tentacle from Day of the Tentacle and I am SO PLEASED with how it turned out.
The trickiest part was sewing the suckers into the cone. The sucker edges are just a long strip of felt, folded in half. I folded the base edge around a bit of cord to keep it nice and round – sort of like piping.
Want to make your own? Well, I whipped up a pattern for you. I can’t be bothered to write full instructions, but use your noggin and you should be able to work it out. If you have any questions or get stuck just comment below.
I didn’t get to play Day of the Tentacle when it was first out, but my boyfriend was a big fan, and we played through it together a few years ago. They don’t make em like that anymore! I kind of wish they did. Follow this link to watch some guy play through the whole thing.
