File under: "sinister whimsy".

Here's my first project, hope you like it! I accept it's not going to appeal to everyone (or anyone?) It's a wrinkle on the Tampon Pal classic design....the conjoined twin is a recurring theme in my work.





If you want to make one, here's how:

You will need to cut out some white felt to this pattern:



The black lines in the middle represent a cut.

Identify where the faces will be & sew on a 2 glass beads for eyes and a simple mouth... or design your own. it's easier to put in on now rather than later if working small.

The size is up to you. If you are going for actual size (as I did) turning out side in at the end can be tricky but not impossible. Neatly stitch it together leaving the bottom end open. The central section (the 2 U shapes in the upper section) can be very tight...pinch together the last mm of felt bit by bit and it CAN be done. Use the rounded end of a pen or pencil (or something similar to push the skin the right way round, then stuff with cotton wool. Pack in with the pencil. Use slightly more than is necessary...reason to follow! The last bit of sewing holds the section of string in and needs to be your best, neatest stitching as it's going to show. When its all sewn up, squeeze some of the "extra" padding down to fill the bottom part.

The pattern seems to work but there is quite a lot of stitching. Can you come up with a more economical pattern?

I always liked the tampon friend toys posted here, and you're a very thoughtful person for inventing this tampon for conjoined twins.   Grin
