I've seen these around in paper and fabric.  I like the concept, but I'm not much of a paper-crafter.  So I gave them a try with stitching.  Here is how they turned out:

They are fun.  As you can see they all didn't end up being an inch.  Cheesy  I kept cutting them too small, trying to make them exactly one inch, so I switched to cutting them so there was enough room for sewing them together.

Those are all so cute!
I love seeing how Craftsters will think outside the box to make a project/idea their own.

I love the little pirate and martini ones!  They look like they'd all be fun to make.  I'll keep them in mind.  I always need small projects I can do in the living room with the family.

Thanks, all!  They really are fun and pretty quick. Smiley  Lots of possibilities for doing fun things with them.  They reminded my of little sew-on patches.  They would be great for sewing on other things.
