After 3 weeks of work, and a fair bit of unstitching and frustration, he finally morphed into the superhero he was always destined to be.
Bound for the clutches of a 4 year old birthday boy, he had a tight deadline, which made him all the more fiddly and mistake prone.
But, finally, he was complete and ready to be squeezed and thrown and dive bombed and jammed into vehicles and other objects that he was never designed to fit in.
And hopefully carried carefully to bed to then be loved on as a superhero and his boy fall into a deep sleep.
I’m just glad he’s found his way to his new forever home.
Batman turned out much better than I thought he would, with all my do overs. The only thing noticed, only after I had sent him off and looked at his photos, was that his feet are a bit over stuffed and the fill shows through the small holes, but it’s not a biggie. With plenty of cuddling and squishing it will all squash down and won’t show after a while.
If you have a little boy (or girl) in your life who’s superhero crazy, perhaps stitch them up a Batman toy too.
Batman arose from this pattern designed by Tale Of Twisted Fibres.
I was thrilled to find such an awesome pattern, and then discover it was free too!
There are heaps of other free patterns on the site as well, so wander on over and take a look.
