Geeze - everything is so beautiful! I really want to make my own invitations, and yours are such an inspiration. Did you just use cardstock? Print stuff on your printer? Spill the beans - I want all the details. (please.)
LUBEE - how did you put the images on your last batch? Iron-on paper? They look awesome! The felt ones are adorable, too - but I think the ones with images have more possibilities when it comes to making cozies for boys. Great work!
I'm making my first attempt at felting an old wool thrift store sweater so that I can make one of these little guys for a friend's Christmas present. How do I know when my sweater is felted enough to start chopping it up? I'm getting so excited!
Oh, and vonvonz, your monster is totally cute. I really like the shape of his (her?) body a lot, and oh, that cute little smirk! Good work!
bftscgirl: I am currently on my fifth time of trying to make this thing work! I've had to frog various amounts of the little sweater over and over again. The pattern is kind of tricky, but take it from a girl who knows - each time you do it, it gets a little faster. Hang in there!
it took me soooo long to sew the buttons on. four hours, I think. Being the super smart person that I am, I originally glued the buttons on...then proceeded to peel them and the hardened glue off when I realized that that was a not so good idea. my fingers were sore for days. not to mention the bleeding.
It's gorgeous, though! I'll bet your sister loved it!
Okay, so this is my very first attempt at an actual article of clothing, and the going has been, well, a little slow. I think that I probably should've picked a more straightforward pattern, because I've ripped this out and started over about five times now, and I'm still not positive everything's going right. Fingers crossed!
Quick question, though: Can someone explain the button part of this? Where does the button hole go, exactly? Thanks in advance!
