I finally finished these guys with little time to spare. I need to mail them tomorrow. I’ve been so preoccupied with other stuff I’ve had a hard time focusing on getting these done. I love how they turned out, I just couldn’t get motivated to finish them. It doesn’t help that I got a new serger for christmas and I keep messing around with it, plus I’m trying to plan and make birthday stuff for my daughters up coming second birthday. But I can now mark these off my to do list. I hear my serger calling.

I’ve officially been battling a head cold for two weeks now. I’ve never had a cold last this long and I have little energy and can’t get motivated to work on the many projects I need to get down by the end of Feb. This gloomy, dreary, sunless weather is not helping. Maybe I have a brain cloud!
Anyway…Here’s what I’ve gotten done on my movie concession guys.
Here’s some of the individual popcorn’s. I stuffed the popcorn bin most of the way and then added about 25 individual popcorn pieces. I think these turned out just like a piece of popcorn. If I had been feeling better I would have taken some pics of how I made these. Basically I just cut a cloud shape out of my yellow fleece, stitched around the center, gathered and stuffed it. In some pieces I went and added a few stitches to the tops of the popcorn and gathered that.
I got three of the four guys mostly done. Tongue depressors where used for the popsicles. I need to add the arms and legs and make the stands for them. Instead of them all being attached to one stand I think they each will have their own.

I have decided to create these guys for my next submission to Stuffed. I think these are going to be a lot of fun to make. I personally love the siamese twin pop sickle.
