Well, I simply adore Miffy!  If you can believe it, Miffy turned 50 this year (yeah, she looks dang good for 50!) and I decided that I had to make myself something to commemorate her birthday.  I started playing with felt scraps and made an applique of Miffy.  Next thing I knew, I made a black corduroy tote for the applique.  Goodgrief.  Anyhow, here's the tote:

     

And a detailed shot of the applique:



Of course, I needed something outrageously funky for the lining to balance the somber black corduroy:



Well, happy 50th, Miffy!  Thanks for all the good memories!

Lottchen, you should definitely make a Miffy applique!  If you do, please post a picture of it.  I would love to see more Miffy appliques Smiley

starlene, thanks.  I think I will try and do appliques of Miffy's friends too.  It might be fun to make a change purse, cell phone case, etc and adorn them with appliques of Miffy's friends.  Hmm...must add that to my list of things to do!

When I worked at a video store I used to play Miffy to freak out the customers. It didn't work as well as the Teletubbies, but I would occasionally get banned from playing them Smiley

patriautism, Miffy's a classic!  Though I'll bet the Miffy videos aren't as in demand as other mainstream movies  Wink  Teletubbies aren't bad, but Barney videos...now that would seriously freak me out!

The customers would stand there with their necks craned up to the screen, slackjawed and wide-eyed. The best thing to put on was The Monkees Head though. Suprisingly rated G and totally freaky.
