DIY Sting Plush


If you need to outfit yourself with the appropriate weaponry for an epic pillow fight, then look no further than this fantastic DIY Sting plush based on the blade carried by Bilbo in The Hobbit. The project was dreamed up by seamstress Choly Knight, who clever used special thread to ensure that it actually glows in the dark!

The sword shape is very simple to do with just a bit of appliqué and some stuffing, but the real kicker is the bit of satin stitching I did in glow-in-the-dark thread to simulate Sting’s ability to glow blue when orcs are near >w< Hopefully you’ll give the pattern a try whether you have special thread or not – it’s just perfect for pillow fights!

Perfect for a Hobbit movie marathon slumber party!
