My first challenge!  I chose to recreate the likeness of a polaroid camera and picture just for fun!  Hope you like it.  I had a blast making this. 

Its stuffed with Fiber Fill, and has cardboard on the inside for support where the flash, shutter, and view finder are. I used rhinestones for those details.  Everything was either handstitched or glued on with Tacky Glue.  The picture was made of felt with the faces painted with acrylic.
 


The actual camera I copied




Here is the back of the camera.





A close up of the pic



And the inspiration for the photo  Smiley




Please let me know what you think.

Fantastic job!  My Dad collects Polariod cameras and I'm always on the look out for them - I'll have to show him a picture of this one, he'll think it's great!
