Bob Goblin! My daughter is obsessed with BobGoblin!
So, I have a 3 year old daughter who is obsessed with Bob Goblin...when she says his name it comes out sounding more like Butt Garden, but we know who she's referring to. I guess since Wally Kazam is a fairly new show, there is not much merchandise available which forced me to venture forth to my local Hobby Lobby in search of materials to build the greatest Butt Garden...I mean Bob Goblin in the whole world. I failed... it is clearly not the greatest in the whole world, it's actually kinda creepy because really, it's just a floating head. I didn't have enough felt to do his little goblin body, but my daughter loves it, so
Like all of my other mostly successful projects, I totally winged it. I used hot glue instead of sewing, which worked fine. I basically just glued the pelt together into a kind of pillow and put poly-fill inside. I actually needed some kind of structure to hold the ears out so I improvised and cut a zip tie in half and glued it to the inside, it worked out perfectly! I was lucky to find this horribly ugly vintage yarn that my mother had and it worked great for the hair, then I used a marker to give him some freckles. Voila! Bob Goblin was born and my daughter sleeps with him every night! :)
