I made this adorable guy from a drugstore loofah, felt, thread, and patience. Sewing the limbs/head wasn't bad, but fastening them to the center of the loofah was frustrating! The loofah bear was gifted to a friend for Christmas and yes, my friend actually uses it to shower... it hasn't fallen apart yet, so I must have done something right haha.
I have been suuuuper AWOL on this thread (finishing up a summer term at school, then moving to New York for an internship... WHEW!) but I received from knit_core last week, so here I am to post my lovely lovely gifties!!
We decided to do a fairly small swap, since I'm such a busy bee. I received a beautiful purply knit scarf which matches my purple winter coat SO WELL and a tea bag stuffie from my Wist aaaand the most amazing/hilarious pillowcase!!!!
it's an awful drawing, but here's what i'm picturing:
cut the first two pieces out of cardboard or posterboard or something similar (thin and sturdy) and then attach the two together in the middle with a "butterfly tack"...
i honestly googled everything i could think of to describe the tack, to no avail. it's like a thumbtack, but instead of having one sturdy post, it has two thin metal posts that are bendable. you would put holes in the cardboard, then push the tack through and bend the posts to opposite sides, thus keeping the two pieces together, but with some room for them to move back&forth like scissors!
MY MODS: Rnd 9: Sc in 3 sc, sc in first ch that begins the arm, sc last sc of arm, sc in 5 sc, sc in first ch that begins the 2nd arm, sc last sc of 2nd arm, sc in 4 sc. (16) Rnd 10: sc2tog under each arm (14) Rnd 11: sc2tog under each arm (12) Rnd 12-15: Work even on 12 sc.
