Adipose Plushie!

A friend and I were talking about Valentine's Day and during the course of the conversation it hit me that I had to make her something for it. And what better way to say I love you then making a plushie? Better yet, an Adipose plushie!

What's an Adipose? An Adipose is an alien life form from Doctor Who, seen in the episode "Partners in Crime" (season 4). They're made of human fat and they're adorable! Yes, human fat. Just watch the episode, you won't be disappointed! 



Obviously, I couldn't make mine out of human fat. Instead I drafted a pattern and made mine out of fleece.


The eyes and smile are black fleece that I blanket stitched on. The heart is made of red satin and is attached with a safety pin so it's removable (if she wants to snuggle with it or use it as a pillow.) This is the first stuffed anything I've ever made, so I'm really happy with how it turned out. In fact, I might have to make my own. :-D

This is so very cute. My husband and I are just watching the episode right now. And it's led me on a search to purchase one for myself. Can I hire you to make one? (Just kidding.. kind of).
Very cute.

Thank you, Marijke! It was a lot of fun to make and it's still one of my favorite things. I'd be more then happy to make you one if you can't find one you like. :) (Probably for cheaper too!)

It's so adorable, I really want to make one for someone now. But I have no idea how to make a pattern for something like this. Do you possibly have a PDF or picture of the pattern that you could send me? I'd be completely willing to pay you for it (if I can afford it that is lol).

Yours looks better than the commercial ones they're selling :). And the stress toy just...doesn't feel right to buy.

Would you actually be willing to make another one?!?! I'd totally buy one.

Hi. This is awesome! Do you have a pdf for sale with the pattern? I would love to make Adipose pillows for our bed to match the TARDIS quilt I am going to make. :) Every time we watch that episode my 20 month old goes bananas over the Adipose. :D

Oh God...This is super cute, I really want to make one of this, Would you be so kind to share the pattern?

It feels weird commenting here about 2 years after this was originally posted, but I've just got to ask: Are you sharing the pattern for this adorable little guy? I've looked all over the internet, and yours is by FAR my favorite! I want to make one for my mom for Christmas/her birthday since she LOVES the little baby Adipose. ^_^
