"Square Pegs" Blog Hop: Fuzzy Wuzzy Hoodies

I always melt when I see kids in little pajamas or coats or costumes that have ears: well, check out these little "Square Pegs" cuties, and so easy to make!
"Hip to Be Square" is stamped directly onto Basic Grey Lemonade DP and the border is colored in with a pink Copic. To make the faces, I stamped the baby face from "Hip to be Square" twice onto Blush Blossom and punched with a 1 1/4" circle punch, then to make the "ear hoodies" I punched a 1" inch circle out of Innocent Pink and Creamy Caramel, then put my 1 1/4" circle punch over the cut out round window and punch again so I had a "circle in a circle", see pic below. (I don't think I ever noticed that 1 1/4" in there before I took this pic, LOL!) I glued these over the blush punch outs so the little faces peek out, then just add ears! (from "Square Pegs") Insides of the ears are paper pieced with the same DP. You can also just layer a smaller punched face over the hood, but the way I did it here really makes the face seem like it's inside, KWIM? The heart is punched with the Extra Jumbo marvy Scalloped Heart Punch. Card base made with a Scalloped Sqaure Nestabilitie, button in the middle is from the Romance Collection.
Peekaboo! TIP: the button is tied with a little strip of CS, those little slivers you trim off with your paper cutter when you're cropping are great for that! :)

  18. How cute and how ingenious and creative in the making! TFS. And thanks for explaining the wink after Brenda's remark about Theresa's designs. I wondered about it and now I understand it's because they're related. I'm sure she really is a favorite, also.
