There should be a twelve step program for crafting

Ooh, sweet MonkeyThumb, I was KIDDING! Don't go out of your way...!

Well, unless you WANT to, in which case I'll be delighted to see what you come up with. Cheesy

Monsters? What monsters? Did I miss something while I was digging out from the hurricanes?! I'll have to see if I can find some MonkeyThumb monster photos!

You have to be special to see those:)

Also, I'm only 32 and have bifoculs which allow me to crochet or do something else like that while whatching TV. but I can't walk with them on, I get motion sick that way Sad

Yeah, those vivid colors are with the wool felt, I got lots of little pieces of ebay a LOOONG time ago and have been scared to try it, so I figured something tiny would be the place to start. BUT, the vivid colors are partially due to the fact that I can't seem to take a picture inside without a flash, and the flash makes them a tad brighter, but they are REALLY bright!

I have a stack about 2 feet high of the other stuff. Not including the inexpensive stuff off the bold that I got out of the remnent  bins. I seriously need to start cranking some stuff out:)

This is the bottom


I did put the button on the bottom underneath the leaf (just the leaf) I think that makes the ladybug sit a little better, I can def see myself switching between the two though:)

The buttons I received from a personal swap with the dear monkeythumb. I've been sitting on them for three months, trying to figure out what to do with these three special buttons. Then I thought of this. My vision was better than the final result, but I think this one stitched up easier now that I know what I'm doing and I do love the lady (bug that is:)

It's still wet from all the fray check and somehow I broke three needles sewing the button onto the actual tape. But I didn't cut or poke myself at all this time. These are quite addictive, I'm going to start my presents tomorrow. Hands hurt right now, but I'm so happy with it. I didn't photo the side, but I embroidered "leaves" on the side, but I used some more practice stitches, so those don't look all that pretty.

Boy I sure am long winded:)
Enjoy, and obviously any compliments, complaints or critiques are appreciated:)

Oooh....you make me jealous! Instead of fussing on CNN about politics, I should be CRAFTING!

So much more rewarding!  Roll Eyes

How do I love it? Let me enumerate the ways...

I love the leafy pattern on the side...

I really like the contrast...

The repeat of the leaf top and bottom is wonderful!

You did a great job with those ribbon ends. (I must re-trim/fraycheck mine.)

Thank  you for sharing!

I'm sorry, I promise I didn't mean to belittle myself. I think I just had a vision of different colors. This one looks quite christmasy if you don't see the ladiness of it all:P

I know! I think all the difference are so great, and you really can do ANYTHING with it, can't wait to see your pinnie measuring tape cozy!!!!

Thanks for your compliments too! They really do help me to feel better....I do hope that she made you feel good too:)

Well, obviously, it's because it's a HOT project!  Grin

I think it has to do with the number of replies you get. Great project+plenty of responses= HOT!

Absolutely adorable!

oh man, you just gave me the BEST idea about adding stuffing. why not make the top a pincushion? you could do so many amazing designs, like a mushroom, a house, the leaning tower of pisa, etc etc etc while the button on the bottom would keep the tape measure functioning.
i'm doing it! i'll show you what i come up with.

Great idea! I saw something like this in a store recently. They had a bird, an owl, a cupcake, and a mouse. The tape measure came out where the tail was.

That just goes to show you...nothing new under the sun!

could you tell if they were handmade?

Was it sort of like a stuffie with a tape measure hidden inside, or a circle with a mouse's features added on?

Enquiring minds,  you know! Wink
