My husband and I are BIG fans of Adventure Time. So much so that I made my husband some Adventure Time plushies for christmas.
Here is Jake, Finn, Lumpy Space Princess and Peppermint Butler. These guys measure 13" tall and 14" wide. The wood base measures 8" x 10"
"Get the lump outta here!!" - Lumpy Space Princess.
This is the Ice King. He measures 18" tall and 10" wide. His crown is removable.
"Gunter, you're embarrassing me!" - Ice King
I need to make Gunter!

Snow White dress is finished. Love how the collar turned out. Made from costume satin and velvet.
This is Simplicity pattern 2817 in a child's size 5. I did alter the sleeves.
Harry Potter robe is also complete. This is a child's size 8, Simplicity pattern 5512. I altered the sleeves on this too. I cut them down so they wouldn't be so wide.
Made from cotton. Found a Gryffindor patch for the front.

I finished the bodice of the Snow White dress. I used Simplicity pattern 2817. I cut out a 5 in width and a 6 in length.
Sleeves are costume satin and the bodice is blue velvet. I thought a different material for the bodice would be nice and keep it from looking to "slick" or "cheap" because of all the satin.
I didn't like the idea of appliqueing the red tear drop shapes on the sleeves. I know that over time that will not hold up. I am very happy with how the sleeves turned out. I cut the sleeves into three sections and added red satin inserts. I'm not sure if this is called a gusset or a pleat. It definitely makes the sleeve puffier.
