Well, here it is, my first "new topic" ever. I made this silly bag for my boyfriend's sister for her birthday. One day my b.f. and I were in a salvation army and there was this chair covered in bright orange shag fur. His response: It looks like someone killed a muppet! From then on, we've been secretly plotting to make furniture from muppets, w/ eyes and all. But we started small, with this purse. I did the sewing, he did the eyes and assisted in artistic direction.  Wink So here it is! Dead Oscar-ish purse. It's a bit wonky, and there's lots of stuff I'll perfect next time, but he'll do.
p.s. i know, i know, he kinda looks like a toilet seat cover.

no, no, no.  not a toilet seat cover, a garbage can cover.  too cute! 

I would rather be bitten by a snake than walk thru a spiderweb and not know where the spider is!

I think you did kill a muppet.  Can you go to jail for that?
