I'm never done with anything early. I'm  procrastinor...

I am definitely a "deadline worker" (sounds much better than procrastinator...which just makes me sound lazy Wink )...I have an uncanny knack for knowing almost exactly how long a task will take me, and then I push it off until I have almost exactly that much time left...doesn't leave much room for screw-ups though Wink

Thanks....and Thanks Smiley I just typed books into google images and it was one that came up.

Thanks! I found it! Now I just need to figure out what to do with it Wink

Even more fantastic, you are! Thanks again for sharing this pattern! I have some Yoda fleece to edge for a blanket for my brother and I think a Yoda doll would be the perfect thing to go with it (although I do fear that it may become a dog toy...).

Does making a t-shirt quilt count as a re-con? Or a tote bag or drawstring backpack (or a lunch bag...how funny would a Korn shirt be for toting around your lunch?) from a t-shirt? I know that my 8th grade students always had the funniest t-shirts (which I laughed at right before I sent them to the office to get something more "school appropriate" Wink ). And, middle school kids grow so fast, they might have a ton of favorites...

Also, you could show them how to make a t-shirt into a tank (the skinny strap kind that my students were not allowed to wear but tried to wear anyway).

Some kids might like the take a pair of pants and add huge triangular panels to the sides kind of re-con. Or turn a pair of pants into a skirt.

I just ordered a bunch of eyes from Hobby Lobby because I needed some other items they carry and I wanted to get my order up to $25 for free shipping :p So, thanks for the tip on how to get the backs on.

But, in the future, I'll probably order eyes from Sunshine Crafts. If I get clear eyes, what kind of paint do you paint the backs with? Would acrylics work? And, do  you need to seal them with anything? I have some acrylic sealer in a spray can...

And, I just realized that I have a birthday party for 2 little girls on Feb 9th...wonder if I could pull off 3 Poppets by then? (Says the never-sewn-one-before gal Wink ). I do have next weekend free as well...

Note: 3 Poppets= 1 for me + 2 for the girls...

DaisyTattoo- I'm pretty sure that you can send early...I never do, because I'm never done early Wink

And, I love your avatar! Where did you find that image?

Wow, babetto, you got some excellent stamps!

Im not a fan of rats, but MsMarple, you did a fanatastic job on both of those. If I had tried to carve little tiny rat feet, they would have been missing half of their toes!

PlumCrafty, I absolutely love the crows! For some reason, I really admire crows, even though I usually see them disemboweling dead animals by the road. I know crows are very intelligent birds, so maybe that is why I like them so much. And, I really like how a crow in silhouette is still recognizable as a crow!

And, love to bead, another great stamp. I love the curvy, almost feminine lines to this one!

Hey, Miss Disney! I think I have everything that I need to craft for your dad. I also have a back-up idea in case something comes out badly. And a back-up back-up idea in case the back-up comes out badly Wink

My weekend is totally free for crafting and I can't wait to get started tomorrow!!

It looks so pretty and "floaty,"  especially in the close-up on your blog. I really like it!

That's one reason that I don't have any pets Wink Plus, my house is such a mess, the pets themselves would get lost in all of it Grin

But, seriously...I hope you find it, and that it hasn't been "enhanced" by your kitty...
