I have no idea why I did this. It involved watching that movie way too many times. The first time I watched and would pause scenes and then make a quick sketch in my book to later turn into felt. I kind of wanted to make an actual narrative but the movie doesn't really have one either so I didn't.

That. Is fantastic.

I laughed as soon as I read the cover. Grin Did you watch this on MST3K? I haven't seen it in aaaages.
I love how detailed your pages are. I think my fav is the one with the flamingo.
Nice job!

Yeah the only one you're going to want to watch is the MST3K version. It made me want to kill myself a lot less plus you get to see Torgo deliver pizza at the end. I have the dvd which also had 30 minutes of outtakes (Poopie!) so I'd watch the movie and then outtakes. It helped a little...

That's awesome.  It makes about as much sense in felt form as it does in movie form.  Okay, I'm lying, your little book is way cooler.  Yay MST3K!!  (I can't imagine someone watching this movie without Joel and the bots!)

Manos ROCKS!!!  This book is awesome, except that Torgo needs bigger knees/thighs.

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

Ha!!  This is AWESOME!!  I like your book so much better than the movie!  It was horrible!  I never would have gotten through it with out MST3K!  Maybe next you should do an "Eegah" book.

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.

AMAZING!!!  I love MST3K!  Torgo is the coolest!  Great job!!!  I would love to see more MST3K felt books.......perhaps one featuring a toy monkey with cymbals of death......

YOWZA! This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. If I were in a store and saw this, I would be forced to buy it without hesitation -though I guess I DO have a skewed sense of what is necessary for my existence Smiley

Yeah, so this is one of my favorite things ever now. The only thing I would add is a page with all the girls fighting ("this is the whole reason they made this movie").

You just made me very happy.

Anyone have a couple extra felting needles? I'll trade for them!

the sketches came out to 22 pages total and it started to feel too bulky. I felt like anything extra would need to be 2 pages (1 total sewn together) and I wanted to do more landscape scenery.
