This one I just took pictures and sewed around them with plastic. What kind? Well, I took a little plastic purse of Ainsley's and cut it up. Now it can withstand spit and fingerprints.
This one took a little more time. I cut up a shoe and sewed it onto the felt. I was a little afriad it would break the needle. But what the heck. I tried and luckily, it didn't! Yay for me! Maybe I can use this page on Brandon. He hasn't figured out the shoe tying yet. ;)
I'm still waiting for ideas. Nobody?
