Ok, so I spent 2 days making these for my BF. They were going to be hung from the rear view mirror in his new car. I bought the fleece to match the color of his car and everything. I spent hours and 6 trips to Jo Anns on these.. burnt myself with the iron.. and guess what? He didn't like them..

So here they are. I used iron-on interfacing to try to make them more dice looking and less soccer ball.. didn't work. I think next time I'll have to get stiffer interfacing or something.

*sigh* better luck next time..

Awesome D20. I know I would never bve able to do somthing like that. Maybe if you suggested that the D20 should be in his room instead of from his rearview mirror. I don't like anything dangling there when I drive so maybe thats why he didnt like them?? I would cry and make my boyfriend like them XD They would definately go on my bed.

What a butthead! I think they're great and obviously took a lot of time. Grin

(Hopefully you won't get offended, but...) What a dick! I think that's really cute and quite clever! If I had a car it would totally rock those.  Wink

He...didn't...like them??
Can not compute.
Do not understand.

I'm so tempted to steal the idea, I think my honey would think it was clever. These are fantastic! You did a really good job.

Well... they look squishy so it probably wouldn't hurt if you chucked it at the back of his head.  Wink

Wow, thanks so much for all the compliments! I'm not sure why he didn't like them, all I can figure is they weren't angular enough?

If anyone wants to makes some I really swear by the Dritz iron on letters I used. They seem to be stuck on really well and were easy to apply. Just, um, be sure you have the right side up  Embarrassed lol I used them on something else too and ended up with a couple letters upside down.. oops

Yours turned out great!  He's silly for not loving 'em. 

I made one a while back out of felt, and the sides were a little more stiff.  I also read somewhere about someone making one and using plastic canvas to reinforce each face.  The iron on numbers were a great idea; I hand embroidered mine, and it took forever.
