The hints of blue around the edges are a water-erasable pen. I made over a dozen of these for this pattern so I just traced it multiple times, over and over and over again. I held the set pieces together with these little clips that are used for sewing when you don’t want to mar your fabric with pins. Of course, you have to take the clips off or they will still leave a mark.
We did this photoshoot outside in a shrub near our back door. Or should I say, kitchen door. We can’t agree on whether it is the front or back door.
Anyway, I had so many bubble teas I had to keep them in a tea tin. You can also see a constellation bubble tea, which is a separate pattern coming soon.
Here they all are! I “doodled” the faces while watching TV after dinner with Abe. The guy with the fangs and the over-stimulated one at the bottom are some of my favorite faces.
What faces would you make?
