A new Instructable every Monday on www.alittlestranger.com

Step 1: You will need...

a) Outer fabric. I used faux fur but fleece or velvet would work well
b) Lining. I used a thin metallic fabric cut from an old top. Any thin non-stertchy fabric will work.
c) Safety eyes. I used 9mm
d) 3-4cm piece of velcro
e) Pocket fabric. I used pink mesh netting, any thin non-fraying fabric will work.
f) Felt scraps, for the face features.


g) Tape measure or ruler
h) Business card
i) Optional: bendy thin plastic, a butter tub lid or wax carton works well. This is to make the business card holder stiffer, you don't need to use it.
j) Needle and Thread
k) Marker pen
l) Biro
m) Pointy fabric scissors
n) Paper scissors

Love the Blooper melty bead necklace. I made the same one for a Christmas ornament.
I made this last christmas for my geeky brother and he loved it!! It looked just like the demo version so the instructions worked v.well. I'm now on here looking for instructables for making him a funky i-phone case. Let me know if you have any ideas people!
Unrelated, but, Your necklace...YOUR NECKLACE... I love it so much ;__;
Oh my god me too D: It looks like Perler beads, methinks I'll print that picture out and make my own.... (:
Even though I really like the card holder, I have to say I'm more excited about attempting to make your necklace!<br />

This is such a neat idea, and thank you for presenting it in such a clear fashion. <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
I've tried making a couple so far, but each time the cute blue-haired girls manage to escape. I&nbsp;think I&nbsp;need to substitute ingredients. Grandmothers are probably slower and less likely to get away, but their hands shake and that makes the card hard to read. <br /> <br /> :)<br /> <br />
NEAT! I want to do it, but i have no idea of how to sew. :( Can I buy you one? xD<br />
