So, I have a lovely new computer for university. To keep Gary from getting all scratched up, I made this:


I bought a sweater at Value Village and felted it for the main body. The heart and skull appliqus were crocheted and sewn on after reshaping the sweater, the stars were some I had lying around from Fabricland. It's lined with some super bitchin' skull print fabric and tons of quilt batting.

This looks great! Using a sweater is very creative, and I love the skull and the hearts!
