A great website find that I am really excited about is called Disco Joints and Teddies. This is an online store but I did a reverse phone look up as the phone number resembles a location near me. Like many businesses today, this is strictly an online store.
I created this little mermaid the other day and I accidentally made it look like Shrek! In fact, my team at Red Heart’s Head Office had a chuckle over how it turned out! 🙂 I tried to crochet the eyes and it more resembles a jack-o-lantern. I was really disappointed.
This morning while on Facebook, I noticed someone did a stuffed moose and it was incredible. The eyes were the type where animation movies puff out the eyes make you feel sorry for the character. Picture Puss N Boots from the Shrek series to get my drift.
I was like, where did you get those eyes? Another fan pops up and says here’s a link for a store. OMG I have died and gone to Teddy Component Land! FINALLY… FINALLY there’s a website I can use to get eyes and other components I need. This definitely got me excited as I am tired of wrecking my projects with trying to do eyes where it can kill a project. The nice thing too, they have sew on eyes and even safety eyes for those with kids. They have noses and furs and much more.
I’m so excited! Can you tell? CHA CHING! haha
