Introducing Eftim and Eamon

Step One: Buy a car wash mitt at the Dollar Tree. I think they're a Father's Day item, so hurry!

















Step Two: Cut off the cuff and the thumb. Leave a little fabric at the base of the thumb.












Step Three: Add some eyes. They can be beads, felt, embroidery, buttons, etc.












Step Four: Turn inside out and sew the cuff portion into a point. Leave the thumb opening!












Step Five: Turn it right side out again and stuff it!













Step Six: Sew up the thumb opening.













Step Seven: Pick out a nose. I went with a classic black.













Step Eight: Apply nose.













Step Nine: Hedgies!













That's Eftim on the left and Eamon on the right.

Hmm, that thumb would make a heck of a nose on a hairy monster, wouldn't it?

Very cool! I know some kids that would love to have these made for them. Thanks for sharing the idea!

Laine said...

Love it! I picked up the only mitt my Dollar Tree had!

Becca said...

Brilliant! And it's funny that someone mentioned giving them to kids...cause I kind of want to make one for myself.

Elizabeth said...

What a great idea.

casserole said...

When every Dollar Tree across the United States sells out of car wash mitts, we'll know why! Those are so stinkin' cute!!!

I posted a link to your tutorial on Craft Gossip Sewing:

As a lurker, I have to tell you it's posts like these - things I NEVER would have thought of! - that keep me coming back.

Your creativity and ability to spot the creation in the raw amazes me. Thank you for sharing with us!

Darling Petunia said...

Okay, if anyone makes these...

I WANNA SEE!

Eftim and Eamon want to see their distant relations.

Darling Petunia said...

Thanks for all the nice comments. I could not wait to get home from the dollar store to try this!

Leslie said...

I'm thinking a "squeak" inside for the perfect dog toy. My pug, Nora, is going to love this! Thanks for sharing this free pattern!

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking like Leslie! Maybe my kitties would like to play with one stuffed with a little catnip, eh??? Cute, cute idea! I give it a "10".

Care said...

so so cute that i had to go to three dollar stores to find the mitts! unfortunately the first one escaped as a gift before i took his picture -- but no worries, i have four more to make!

Kathryn said...

Thanks again for sharing this idea and tutorial.

I ended up adapting mine into an Echidna (Spiny Ant Eater) with felt "claws" and painted on eyes and nose.

Just wanted to comment that not only are these adorable, but I went and bought mitts er...like a year ago at dollar tree for future gifts.
Today (jan 2011) I was at target and they had a bunch in the dollar section including hot pink ones...incase anyone comes across this late and wants to buy mitts...or wants pink girly ones :)

Tracy said...

Sooo cute. My boys will love these! Will HAVE to give this a try.

Angela said...

Just by delegating the job of cleaning to some professional office cleaning company, you would not only save money but also valuable time which can be put into other important responsibilities. In case if some of your employees have been assigned with this job, they would charge extra for this addition job role. Moreover, they would be avoiding their usual job assignments and waste most of their time imparting this role. But with the involvement of the office cleaning service there would be no such problems.

I took service for shifting my goods from Agarwal Packers and Movers. They shifted my items from Noida to Gurgaon. But when I unpacked the box for arranging the items I saw that some of my expensive showcases were broken, I found that it was destroyed totally. I complained about this issue to Agarwal Packers and Movers and made them aware of this issue. They apologized and resolved the issue without any delay. I got delighted and satisfied as their qualitative services are very quick and beneficial to customers.
