LOVE this! I'd be terrified of breaking it, but I'm happy to admire it from afar. Smiley

This is incredible! I'm a total failure when it comes to cake decorating, so I am doubly in awe of your skills.

Thanks!  Cheesy "Cute in an odd way" seems to be kind of my style. LOL

I'm currently in the throes of a monster stuffie-making obsession. I call these little guys "Fierce'n'Fuzzy Monsters," my sister calls them "ragdolls with 'tude." Whatever you call 'em, I have been having a great time making them and coming up with new ideas. They're all 8.5" tall, sewn from fleece and stuffed with fiberfill. All of the monsters and clothes are my own patterns, and the faces are hand-painted. I'm loving making them so much that I finally bit the bullet and opened an Etsy shop to help fund my obsession.  Grin Here's hoping someone actually buys them, but even if not, I love them all anyway!
Thanks for looking, and have a great night!

This is Spike, my pierced-face, skully-wearing, horn-gauging tough guy:

Bo, the stealthy camo-sporting soldier-wannabe:

Kyle, who's, like, soooo emo:

And Kassidy, Kyle's girlfriend:

Oh, PS: If you'd like to see more detail, let me know and I'll be happy to post more pics, or you can just check out my etsy listings. Smiley

I would suggest looking in the floral section of Joann Fabrics, Walmart, or even the dollar store. They often carry the paper twine (not sure of the actual name, it's like a twisted paper cord), and if they don't you may find something else that will work. Something like a paper-wrapped floral wire might hold its shape better, and while it's probably a bit more expensive, it would save you a lot of work gluing (and swearing, if you're anything like me  Cheesy ). If you do want to stick with the yarn or something like it, I'd think a jute twine might hold its shape and hold up to the weight of the lights better, and I second the craft or wallpaper glue idea.
As to the lights... I've only ever seen the shorter strands of lights at the dollar store, usually 20 to 50 lights per strand. In fact, last time I was at Dollar Tree, I recall seeing small strands of white lights in poly bags in their bridal section. I wonder if you could achieve a similar look with those LED tea lights? Like one or two per ball?
Hope this helps, at least a little bit. I can definitely see what you're trying to do, and I think it'll look great. Good luck! Smiley

I'm not part of this swap, but I just had to chime in and say that Main Street Pizza is, in fact, delicious. I've never been to the one in St. Louis, but I get takeout from the one in Breckenridge all the time. Small world!  Grin

I agree about the solid color, too. I think it depends how much you want the name to stand out. If you want it to really pop, I think a chocolate brown would be nice, or go with a cream tone for a more muted look. A sherbet-orange would also look good, I think. And I may be giving too many choices to actually be helpful... Regardless, I like it.  Grin

This is great! I'll definitely be giving it a try.
One thought on the clasp... couldn't you just snip off the one from the sacrificial bra and use that?
Thanks for sharing! Smiley
