How do you make a disgusting alien cute? Easy: just replace his slimy skin with wool. Oh and give him a “squezzly bunnybear.”
Flickr pro/proud mom/Jedi Grand Needle Felter Kit Lane imagined that as a child, Zorba’s offspring wasn’t really an evil Hutt. Unfortunately “the unmerciless(?) taunting by his slime mates over his compulsion for plushies” pushed him over the edge (must’ve been quite a push) and forced him into a life of crime. So Kit Lane created this needle-felted wool version of that young, lovable and plushy-loving Jabba. It’s on display right now at the Bear & Bird gallery’s Stitch Wars exhibit, which runs until August 29. You can also check out a few more shots of needle-felted Jabba at Kit Lane’s Flickr page.
