So here is my contribution:

It is (obviously) a Bert cozie

it is beadwork on a satin scrap.
The lining is also made from the satin:

Here is a close up from the beads and the stitching:

and the coolest thing about it is that his hair wired so can can play hair dress up with it

If you got that far you might wonder what this cozie is for. Huh
Well, have a guess..

it is
a cozie
eyebrow tweezers!

Got it??!! Bert...unibrow...Harhar!

I have to admit that the idea behind it was not completely useless. I made it because I wanted something for the tweezers so I can find them better in the abyss of my purse. At the end the useless character still showed up because the opening of the cozie is not closeable and the tweezers fall out and still hide in the depth of my purse.. Undecided

Hope you like it!


I am collecting any kind of skull shaped beads and patches-feel free to send me spare ones  ;-)

Bert is awesome!  I love his unibrow and his hair, and I can't believe how much work this must have been!  Really cute, and funny too. 

Can you stitch in a bit of velcro at the top to keep him closed?  Amazing beadwork, thanks for sharing!

I think I may have just pissed myself!  That is ridiculously hysterical.  And Bert of all people need that. 

Great beadwork!  It really does look like him.

Thats hilarious!!! I need one of those for my mother and I. We always end up taking each others tweezers because we loose our own. Love all the bead work and I'm sure it took a good good amount of time to make this wonderful cozie! Awesome job! Now burt has no excuse not to tweeze <3

haha If you have a tweezers misplacement issue like I do, I bet this will solve it.
And I'm amazed at all those tiny stitches! The beading looks very neat.
