Giant cockroach for my son! It’s his favorite toy now, he calls it ‘Gokiburi-kun’ (gokiburi = cockroach).
It is basically just an oval shape pillow with legs. The wings and head are made with leftover dupioni silk that I dyed brown. The original color of the silk was silver, and the shimmers would make a perfect cockroach. The body is made with cotton/linen fabric with interesting texture, leftover from my husband’s shirt.
If you want to make it, the tutorial is in my blog here
