Ball of yarn was totally
The boy wanted to be in the pic:)
The button and ribbon are just slightly off color. But I think they work...Also shows what i did with the side. I left the bottom blank
Now, the hubby told me during the making (wel right after I finished) That you can see the dark measuring tape under the light felt. So he said, just double up on the light felt and you won't see that the tape is red or black. So that's what i did on this one. And that does something lucky, turns it into a place to stick pins:)
plus, I made the ball of yarn puffy, and put it right over the retract button this time (added dimension) and that works great for pins too, so i REALLY think making this into a double duty pin cushion/tape measure cozy is a GREAT idea (not that I didn't before, but no, even more so....
