Week 9: The Mixtape Massacre (or, My Mixtapes Bring All the Boys to the Yard)

With three (count 'em, three!) craft shows fast approaching, I didn't get around to trying anything new last week since I'm trying to get stuff done for all the Holiday sales. First on the to-do list is more felted mixtape pins. They were a huge hit at Woolly Grooves in September, and they keep getting lots of love. In fact, this pin is the first thing I've made that's received more attention from the boys! (Which makes me wonder, how come boys don't like acorns? Why doesn't everyone like acorns? Weird.). So, in attempt to capitalize on this new demographic I seem to have attracted, I'm making some limited edition Robot Mixtapes. I assume boys also like robots? I first saw this fabric (robots printed on natural linen) on Etsy and put off buying it because it was expensive and would take a long time to get here (it was coming from Japan). Lucky for me, Karyn at The Workroom started stocking it and my problems were solved. The silver thread is my favourite part.
