I made it this week, since I got reminded there was a felt Craft Challenge on!  It was inspired by poor Milton's favorite office accessory in the Office Space movie.  Enjoy, this was just for fun!  Have to say, so many of the other entries are just AMAZING!!!  I used felt for most of it, cut it freehand.  The logo was cut out from white cotton quilt fabric I had with the aid of scissors and fusible interfacing (to keep fraying at a minimum.)

thanks, that seriously is one of the funniest movies ever, as anyone who has had a cubicle job knows!!!  definitely a fave!  now, what to do with it?  I have a few guy friends that I think have offices at work that need decorating!!!!  hee, hee!

ps.  any ideas how to keep the seams from being bulgy after stuffing it?  I guess foam would be the answer?  straight lines aren't so straight after stuffing it =(

Great stapler!  It would be so much fun to keep something like that sitting on a desk and seeing what kind of reactions you would get.

This is great. It reminds me of my fav book...

In the acknowledgments of "A Heartbreaking work of staggering genius" Dave Eggars draws a picture of a stapler, just like this. Yes it is as random as it sounds... so awesome!
