A "Bad" Zippy Project

Back in November, nephew Jackson (age 7) visited us and, knowing that I like to sew, drew me a picture of "Bad" SpongeBob with the request that I make a custom one for him. After he made his drawing, we discussed the color scheme and details. Because it was the holiday season, Jackson had to wait a bit for the fruition of his design to be turned into reality.
Now that "Bad" is done and the recipient has taken ownership, I can publish the pictures of this fun project!
I used felted wool from shrunken sweaters to complete this project. Both machine and hand-sewing were employed.
"Bad" has a removable hat.
The socks were made from actual socks that were cut to size.
And, due to this being my year of zip, I put a zipper down the back of "Bad"
with an inserted pillow that can be removed and the inside can be used as a secret storage place
for Jackson's treasures.
I hope the two pals have a long, happy relationship
together!

Timi, I had never heard of "Bad" before either! Can anyone out there tell me if this is just something he
made up or what???
