We got a sewing machine at Cost Co. on Friday, figured out how to use it this morning and made an "Empathy Monster" (note the zipper mouth so that he is a good listener) just an hour ago! Isn't he cute? I used an old cashmere sweater that I've been saving for a sewing project, some buttons, a zipper and some scrap cloth AND my new sewing machine! I'd like to put him up in my etsy store if anyone is interested in purchasing him... I'll let you know when he's up! Here's some more images of how he came to be... I'm naming him "Birdie" and I hope you like him!!
