Thanks, everyone! I was afraid I'd mess up the face, so I had the art teacher at school sketch it out for me. Then, I cut up the sketch to use as the pattern.

I was a bit worried about getting fur all over the house, but I drew the pattern on the back, and then cut it with an Exacto knife. It worked really well, and I had almost no bits of fur flying around!

Thanks, everyone! I have another set already dyed, now I just need to sit down and cut out the pieces. I just have to decide if I want Leonardo or Donatello Wink

I'm still contemplating this, I've had lots of arthritis problems in my hands lately so I'm not sure if I want to commit to too much crochet, but this is the perfect take-along project for work!

Questions~Are people doing the whole motif the same yarn or switching rounds? Or just depends on the motif?

Even though you're an experienced swapper, you could request only one partner... it would cut down on the amount for you. Something to think about, anyway Wink

And, I have a bunch of motifs picked out that are more than one color. So, I'll be switching. And, unless my partner has a color preference, I'll be using different colors for the different motifs.

I made these for the Undies Swap-Favorite Themes. One of the themes my partner listed was cryptozoology. The yeti/abominable snowman falls into this category. And, since my partner and I are about the same age, we both probably watched the Rudolph Christmas movie as kids, featuring Bumble, the Abominable Snowmonster.

The front:


The back (of undies- shirt back is plain):


I used store bought undies sent by my partner. The front of the top is fake fur and felt appliqued on. The bottoms have star patches ironed on (to represent the star that Bumble puts on the tree in the movie) and his name stenciled onto the back with fabric paint (using the freezer paper method). My sister has already requested a shirt of her own Wink

I made these for the Undies Swap-Favorite Themes. One of the themes my partner wanted was something along the lines of Underoos (the underwear that's fun to wear), and she had listed TMNT as a love.

The front:


The back:


I used store-bought undies sent by my partner. I used iron-on transfers to decorate the bottoms, along with fabric paint to paint the trim/seams/waistband. The shirt was ribbed, and stretchy, so I had trouble figuring out how to work around that while still having the design look good. The mask is stitched in place in the center front only, and has long ties that can be tied in the back. I love them so much, I'm making a slightly different version for myself!

The extra set of motif's sounds like a great idea! I just got a motif book and so many of them have multiple colors and I wanna try them out but I'm not sure how they'd look using different colors. So the 'practice' blocks can be an extra set for yet another blanket Smiley

Have you been sent to tempt me? My brain keeps trying to tell me that I should....nay, MUST buy one of the motif books I wanted in order to fulfill my swap duties here. I must keep resisting!  Tongue

I know what you mean... I already had 2 books. Then, when I returned a book at B&N the other day, I browsed through another one... and I had to buy it (in my defense, I did have a store credit I had to use that day).

You could always check the library, if you don't want to spend the cash. My library network is great about finding and obtaining books for me!

I just downloaded the pattern. If I can get my sewing area cleared off, I may be able to make a couple from supplies I have on hand.

yeah, I didn't do my 40 either! Cheesy

I did my 40, but I didn't weave in the ends. I'm going to start carrying a bag of them around, so I can weave while I wait for things...

me either! I think I made maybe 15 for myself.
