Hi!
This is my first challenge... very exciting Smiley. Anyways, unfortunately, out of the millions of ideas I had, I thought I would go with the one that was the "most original", but ironically, it turns out someone else made a pretty cool slot machine way before me! At first I was kicking myself for not making my original idea, but I figure they both are quite different looking, so it's all good.

It is slightly rough around the edges, but I don't like to measure things out! Nor do I really know how to sew properly, so it was mostly hot glue-gunned. Ah well, I guess we can say it gives it "character", right? Thanks for looking!
