These really are super weird and fun. I could definitely see spreading some of these around the house in October for a bit of a Halloween feel. Or just tucked away in some craft supplies for an occasional spook Tongue Nice find on all the mugs and the perfect brain fabric!

My teacup & brain fabric have arrived, so I can make one for myself.  Any tips?

Mistress Jennie - I think it's all pretty strait forward. Just stuff the brain very tightly so there aren't any wrinkles and make sure you separate the fluff out so it doesn't get all lumpy. This took me about 2 hours the first time. Oh get some heavy duty string for the synching part, regular sewing thread broke every time for me. I got some thin lace cotton yarn at Walmart for that. Be careful when hot gluing, I only put the glue inside the cup and then placed The brain in. Lol I guess I had a lot more pointers that I realized.
