Dropdead cute pin in emily strange-style <3
I decided to make my own Emily Strange Kitten-Plushie instead of wasting LOTS of money buying one. Well, the first crafty outcome was a cute pin, about 7 cm high...

PLEEEEEASE show me your versions <3 I'm always so curious about other people doing this stuff...
( Guess today is a "using the word stuff alot-day"... )

  • How to make a foam brooch. Emily Strange Kitten Pin - Step 1
    Step 1

    Get your stuff. Besides the typical crafting stuff ( glue, scissors, pencil ), you need... darn, I dunno the english word... You know, these thin foam-like sheets, sumthin between paper and fabric .___. Uhm, well, you need that in black and white. Plus: Pink or red paper and a heart shaped stamping thing. Solid paper for the pattern AND a normal hole puncher AND one of these waterproof, smelly black pens. Puuh.

  • How to make a foam brooch. Emily Strange Kitten Pin - Step 2
    Step 2

    Make your pattern using the original plushies as a model. Not so hard!

  • Step 3

    Cut the body out of the foam stuff ( black ), the "skull" in white. We also need the chest-bones. Not so easy to cut because it's really small! Just do a shape like that:
    ( hope this works ;) )
    Punch out 4 circles of white foamstuff for the pawns.
    Plus, use the heart punching thing to get a pink or black paper heart. You can cut this by hand, too. Hehe, HF with that... I tried. I sucked. BIG TIME! ^____^

  • Step 4

    Paint face with smelly pen! Juuuust take the original plushies to get the idea. I love that thing with the star-shaped eye, but I suck in drawing stars :P Punch a hole in the scull for the second eye. Be careful with that ^^

    Glue stuff together. Shouldn't need a picture for that ^^

    Glue heart under chestbonestuff!!!

  • How to make a foam brooch. Emily Strange Kitten Pin - Step 5
    Step 5

    Glue a pin-thing behind kitties head, let dry and here you go! Wear with pride... And don't make such an emo photo as I did xD

  • How to make a foam brooch. Emily Strange Kitten Pin - Step 6
    Step 6

    I also made a hair clip <3³
    But the glue is still wet, so I can't show you how it's looking on my head ;)

    This thing came out rather big... If you have non-black hair, you can go without the lighter purple foamstuff-layer...

    STUFF! Gnah, love that word ^___^

Sehr niedlich =)
Kann man bestimmt auch ganz gut aus Filz machen und mit Textilfarbe bemalen, das sieht mMn immer etwas hübscher aus als Moosgummi. Nur das Bemalen ist nervig xD
