Kiwi Time!Posted: 02/15/2013
Welcome to the world, giant kiwi! I love getting custom commissions and stretching my brain to make shapes and designs HUGE! You can get your own Giant Kiwi Pillow at my Etsy Store. I am working on making a slightly smaller, simpler one for customers with smaller Giant Fruit budgets.
This one is pretty big– 18 inches long, 12 inches wide, 8 inches tall and 34 inches at the “waistline”. Only weighs a pound, though. The flat top of the kiwi is made of green and white fleece, and I free-hand(?) machine-stitched the veins around the core. All the seeds were stitched on by hand, and I used the Henson Stitch to sew the furry peel to the green center. I finished it off by using a tiny pick to tease out all the fur fibers from each seam, mostly covering any trace of joinings.
