and so I needed a quick review of the blanket stitch. . .
Mine are nowhere near as cute as the original creators. Sticking to my craft budget, I used the leftover felt from Superhero Cape Day and picked up some floral wire at the dollar store. Toss in a couple of cotton balls for stuffing (didn't have any polyfill on hand) and, well, it just isn't quite as professional looking. Don't get me wrong, I still think they are cute as all get out. Mine are more on the whimsical (abstract) side of life. Not too bad for my first blanket stitch project though.
I thought they would be much bigger, but they are teeny, tiny. Itty bitty. Cute little buggers.

Total cost: $1
Total time: 1 hour 30 minutes for three
Final verdict: Cute, but quality materials would make them cuter. I might try to make them a tad bigger but then they might not stand up. I love them anyway!
