This is my first attempt at sewing with felt. I was inspired by the Tsum Tsum swap while watching my sister working on her projects for her swap partner. Her favorite is Meeko, so I decided to make this for her. I needed a lot of help with the sewing together of the bag, (I don't even own a sewing machine) but I know people who do so I figured I could give this a whirl. I ended up getting help from the person I was making it for. She has the best tools for crafting! She did help but I did do most of the sewing, I needed mostly help with execution and fixing the sewing machine every time it yelled at me.
I am pretty happy with how it turned out and my sis (audio) loves it.
Looking forward to my first swap.
Thanks for checking it out.

Very cool coin purse rendition of Meeko!  (I have a plush Meeko on my bed--so mature, right?) You did a nice job on the raccoon features, and I like how the interior corn pattern goes with the Native American theme of the Pocahontas film, and, likewise, the hummingbird charm suggests Flit.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Meeko is adorable! Your stitching is very neat and I love how you added his little ears.
