MONSTER COZY

yesterday my mom and i went to the legion for lunch and to see my uncle who was cooking an all you can eat $4 spaghetti dinner. we bought a craft show table for $15. the show is on november 21st, i think, so i have about two months to prepare. i was in a craft show at the same place last year and i barely sold anything. so this year i want to make things that serve a purpose and that can be sold for cheap. like under $5 cheap. when we were eating lunch, there was some kind of old person card tournament going on around us and lots of people had gross old drink cozies. one even had a can of pop in a folded down beer bottle cozy. so i made this today out of felt and fused plastic bags:

pièce de résistance – nes paddle ipod case!

EPIC NES PADDLE

i made this ipod case for my friend kyle in exchange for scribblenauts!

this is the back. it’s sort of plain.

the cases so far

i’ve been dying to post pictures forever. it’s really hard to schedule hangouts. i was supposed to make this case for kyle’s birthday in december, but i procrastinated a lot. i guess it didn’t really matter since i haven’t seen him since like november anyway, lol. but we all hung out the other day at dan’s and we made the exchange finally :D

Little Lion iPod Case

i’ve been thinking about this ipod case all week.

i’ve been imagining a sweet little face with little black eyes and a pink heart nose and little round ears.

lion face

i’ve been dreaming about a big orange mane and sweet little tail.

sweet little tail

i knew it wouldn’t be hard to translate this to felt. the pieces basically cut themselves out (the tail fluff actually did; i found it in my cutout felt leftovers pile and it was perfect) but the sewing kind of went all wrong. i sewed the pieces in the wrong order many times and had undo a few parts, after i had already finished stitching them up completely. i had to put it down at one point, and i finally picked it back up today and finished it off.

back

this case has a double layer of felt on the back because i stitched the arms to the original back, rather than the front under the mane. i had sewn the mane on first, without thinking that the arms needed to be stitched on first so their stitches could be hidden under the mane. i also stitched the tail to the back (don’t get me wrong, this is where it should be, but it didn’t look very good from the back), so i had to put another layer on top to hide all of these ugly parts. i still have to stitch on a strap and a button (another thing i forgot), but for now, he is mostly done : )

have a happy weekend : )
