you may remember the sock monkey I made, I found this kit .99 at Wal-Mart and decided to make it as well, it matches my guy the last detail, slippers, the teddy, even the hat, took a couple our hours to do start to finish. saving it for my Christmas tree
This was a chart from cross stitch gold, I didn't know what to stitch my best friend for Christmas, well what to make this year. I always make him a gift. Its tradition. it is getting harder and harder to come up with something
any ways this chart fell into my lap last minute and fit perfectly on an Altoid tin, so his gift was born
i left the people out of the design everything else is the same
he loved it, he likes that I reused an Altoid tin, loves the felt i found to line the inside and says the bus on tin is providing inspiration for his real bus new paint job. Even if his is the 84 Vanagon and not a 60s loaf style bus
i used a piece of yellow and orange ribbon to make trim on the can, don't think you can see it in the pictures.
This maybe a repeat, this is pumpkin doodle along with apple doodle I want to turn these into throw pillows for my fall decorating.
