I made this for my nephew Thomas after I found out how expensive these things are to buy. I made it quite a lot larger than the ones you can buy, I think that made it even more appealing to Thomas! The base measured about a meter from front to back at the base, as it made Thomas look tiny as he is only 4! Anyway it turns out he loved it. However as I did not make a pattern I can't make it again if he decides he wants another one!! I used fleece material and hollow fibre stuffing, lovely and soft! I sketched the shape of the panels onto the reverse side of the material and assembled with quite a lot of adjustment as I went along. Great fun though.
