I was tired of seeing my cotton buds in the plastic boxes they usualy come in, so I though of doing something simple to change that =). I hope you enjoy, as this is my first project!
I am sorry that the photos arenÂ´t very clear, I only used my phone camera.
Find a cup. I used a smalll Nutella container which I found to be perfect for the purpose.
Measure it around the widest area, as well as the high of it (how tall it is=.
Once you got the measurements, get some felt of whatever colour you want, and cut a rectangle that is the right measurements.
The measurements I got were 9cm by 24cm, so I got myself a rectangle that size.
Once you got your rectangle cut, place it around your cup, pin it down while in the cup, so you know exactly where to stich.
Slide the felt cover out of the cup and use a sewing machine or do hand stick to keep it together.
After that, get some black card, and with a small coin, draw 2 circles for the eyes.
Cut them, and add two little white dots with the white gel pen, to give it the cute anime look!
Glue the eyes onto the felt. I found that a lot of glues work.
This bit is optional. Make a little bow out of ribbon. You can make alot more acessories if you want, or just lave your cup without them.
when you are done with your bow, sew it on the felt. Also draw a little mouth with a black felt tip.
I find it easier to do if you take the felt cover from the cup and place it flat on a table, then draw the mouth.
And you are done!
