I never realized one could construct a hat, but after seeing your tutorial it now makes such sense.

Really cute and great idea to use a similar size stuffed animal when a kiddo isn't around  Wink

I love how you managed to tuck the essentials into a compacted and organized system! 

(I need to make something similar for my embroidery goodies so I can keep my supplies and project wrapped and clean when not in use.)

Great idea!

Haha...I pity da fool dat had ta sleep on dat scratchy ding! 

Bet it was hard to decide which part of the pillowcase was going to be put to a new use, and clever of you to have Mr T (and his bling) watch over your ka-ching!

HOST:  ...and here is the moment we have all been waiting for.  Our runner up for 1939's Miss Tattoo Contest goes to... Lydia!  
(Host crowns Lydia with a red robe as she expresses disappointment at another humiliation)

HOST:  As our 2nd place winner, a song has been written especially for her.  Hit it boys...

Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, say have you met Lydia?
Lydia the Tattooed Lady
She has eyes that folks adore so,
and a torso even more so
Lydia, oh Lydia that encyclo-pedia
Oh Lydia The Queen of Tattoo!

*Little does Lydia know that during the next 74 years, her song will be performed by many and most recently featured as a ring tone in the final episode of Breaking Bad!


Lydia was inspired by Mimi Kirchners work, and started her life as a pillowcase from Dirty Linen's "Suburban Toile" line.  After removing all seams, the pillowcase was soaked in a mild coffee/tea solution to give it a fleshy color.  Lydia's face and hands are stitched with love (eventho she has not yet experienced it) and consideration was given toward each tattoo before her body parts were cut out.

Lydia's tattoos represent her life story and include:

Foliage on her legs to hide stubble


Birds on her chest express freedom


A removable top (which requires a 10 cent charge for viewing) teases her audience with power lines and lets them know show she is no longer a small town girl



Thanks for viewing! Roll Eyes

FIRST STEP DONE. Finally, I have only been working on it for a week!!! (And I haven't actually*made* anything yet!

I am challenging myself to compete in every monthly swap for a year. The plan is for it to make me try new things and learn new skills!

Sorry I meant to say thanks for the clarification, and different sized pillows sounds weird!!!

YESH...that's my challenge too!  Not sure I'll be able to hit 12 but am shooting for at least 6 - - good luck!
