Batty Bat Bat

There is a little hallway in my house that has a light with a pull chain. A pull chain I can never find, in the dark, to turn the light on.
I made the worst pom pom and tied it to the end of the pull chain. And then felt really sad as it was a very bad pom pom. It needed to be replaced.

I decided to make a bat for the pull chain. I mean, it’s going to hang there, in the dark…it should be a bat, right? Right.
So a bat I have made.

He is slightly wonky and is made from scraps. He does his little plushie duty, though, and I can find the stupid pull chain easily. I’ve named him Igor.

I used stacked button for the eyes which make them stick out a bit and look like the actor who played Igor in “Young Frankenstein,” Marty Feldman.

He is made from an excellent pattern by fluffybunnies over on Craftster. Free pattern and everything, sweet. My dog is terribly disappointed as he feels every stuffed object in the house is his. We disagree on this. Anyway, say hello to my little friend, hanging there in the dark. Hey.
