My husband and I are Superhero fanatics. My favorite Superhero is definitely Spiderman, but in honor of the new Superman vs. Batman movie, I decided to whip up this cute version of the usually somber Batman.
He still looks pretty mean in pillow format though. I guess there’s something about those sharp, piercing eyes and the straight, set mouth. I love that his cape billows out too, so if I really feel like playing around, I could just toss him across the room and pretend like he’s flying.
This post is a little late, seeing as the DIY Batman Pillow Plushie video went up on Sunday, but in honor of DIY Friday, here it is at last. It’s actually very simple to make, even though there are a lot of steps and little pieces of fleece involved. Any time I make a plushie pillow stuffed animal whatchamacallit, I am reminded of my days in Kindergarten when we would cut out little pieces of construction paper and glue them into a mosaic. I loved those arts and crafts projects. I miss being a kid, actually.
Come to think of it, I guess this means I haven’t grown up one bit, except instead of construction paper, I’m now using fabric, and instead of glue, I’m using a sewing machine and thread.
I guess I can live with that.
Especially when it turned out so cute.
Here’s the tutorial if you want to make your own. I’m also planning to add it on Etsy if you’d rather purchase it instead. 🙂 Though they are made to order, so keep that in mind. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
Of course, now that I’ve made Batman, I’ll have to whip up a Superman. He’ll be ready, hopefully, in time for next week’s DIY Friday. Have a great weekend guys, and don’t forget to come back on Tuesday for the next dress tutorial. 🙂
