DIY BUBU

Hi guys! Told you that you'll be seeing me soon!;) Fun fact: in case you're confused by my tittle it's actually a nickname for my boyfriend's bolster, his childhood bolster! In my case I grew up calling mine "chou chou". My Mum threw it away when I was about 10 I guess? Lucky for my boy, he managed to salvage his!

Well getting back to the topic,  so me and my Boy came up with this idea; sewing a "bubu" for each other. The reason why we decided to sew a "bubu" instead of me just bringing Fag, which is the bear that he got for me during one of our monthsary is b/c I once watched a horror movie that freaked me out so badly that I've stopped bringing soft toys overseas since then:( So with this new pillow, it allows me to hug during flights or while sleeping and at the same time, without making me so paranoid about bears ;)

We went to get the ingredients and caught Maze runner (and hell it was damn amazing!!) before heading to his house to do up the "bubus"!

Ma boy donated a few of his shirts as choices. We thought it's more comfy to use clothes instead of getting new cloths! And we got ourselves 2 cottons!:)

Choose your cloth! So for me, I chose the maroon tee for da boy! And I cut out that to use it as its nose teehee

Draw/Sketch out what you want

So for me.. I decided to make him a rabbit head!

Cut out and sew some of the parts and taxa you're ready to put the cotton in!

But before that...lemme take a break and have my bread yumz

&Here's how the cotton looks like when opened!

After filling them up with cotton, you gotta sew it! p/s: forgot to take mine, probably cuz I'm snacking

Sneakily snap a shot of my boy while he's sewing them

This time round I got caught:( thanks to the flash!

& Tada, there you have it:



I was too sleepy to even show my face b/c we did this till about 2 am and I didn't sleep well the night before this so yep gotta hide my face yo! The end product isn't that bad right? *secretly thinks I did a better job* but yay to mine being just a square cuz I'm afraid hahaha!

We definitely enjoyed the process of making our brand new "bubu"! Thought that it's a pretty good idea to actually make this as a gift! I mean it's filled with love and whatsmore it's one of a kind since you're the creator of it;)
