oct 2017 release collage

Hope you’ve been enjoying lots of eye candy over the last two hops–can you take one more day? :)

Today’s project is a fuzzy one, featuring the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Bear Hugs by Julie Ebersole



I had seen some adorable felt tissue pouches on Pinterest and it occurred to me that Bear would make such a cute one! I cut a simple slit across the mid-section of the front layer, after I had stitched on his facial features and then I sewed together the front and back layers.  Couldn’t resist using some of the Snailed It  Dies to add some accents. I folded up some pocket tissues and tucked them inside, but you could tuck all sorts of things inside–this would be a cute way for a child to put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy to come or tuck a small gift or individually wrapped candies inside! You could even wind up and store a set of those ear pods/headphones to a music player inside him!
