This is a felt boombox, or, as I like to call it, a jambox.  Imagine groovin down the street with this guy on your shoulder, playing those sweet tunes for all to hear.  Okay, so this boombox doesn't actually play music, but you can pop in the little happy-faced gray cassette tape and pretend your favorite song is on.

Nearly all of this boombox is machine-sewed, with some handstitching to attach the handle and front cassette holder.  The music notes actually stick out from the speaker with wire, which is sort of hard to tell in the pictures.  The little gray cassette tape is my favorite because it just looks so happy being a cassette tape...

Here are the pics! Please enjoy!

I love it! I was just talking about "jamboxes" to someone last week, and they had no clue what I meant.

Really!? JAMBOXES, folks. Jamboxes.

I'm not THAT old! Wink

Great work - like everyone, I luvs that sweet little tape. Smiley
