makin' bacon...

I've been hanging onto a little project until either a) I got together with my friend to give her what I made, or b) Spoonflower opened voting for Kawaii fabrics. Catherine and I have still not seen each other (close your eyes and ears, dear!), soooo....

YIP2010 - 244

Before you do anything, please, please, please go and vote for my "Bacon Makes Everything Better" fabric on Spoonflower. There are so many wonderful choices, and I really don't think that I have even a sporting chance, but I'll beg for votes anyway.

Now, to share something fun that you can use your bacon fabric for. You only need a swatch of it to make a couple of these, so it's not even a huge investment (in the event that you don't know what you would use a yard of bacon fabric for...). But whether you need a little or a lot, you can purchase the fabric here.

bacon puppet pieces

Cut out a strip of bacon, leaving about 1/4" around it. You'll also need to cut three more pieces that match this, but they can be from plain old white cotton.

Stack the bacon and one plain piece, then stitch along the bottom. Keep your thread going, then add the other two pieces behind.

Continue stitching all around the bacon until you get to the bottom again.

Sew the bottom of the two back pieces together, but of course, not to the front.

Tie everything off securely, and you're set to do a little finger puppet act with some sweet bacon! The extra layers of fabric are an easy way to add some stability. The puppet will stand up better, but still be floppy. (My brothers always ask for "floppy bacon", as opposed to the crisp turkey bacon that I prefer!)

Now, don't forget to vote!

  1. I recognized it right away yesterday as being yours, it is cute and quirky and has a great chance of winning. I voted for it along with about 8 others, so many choices this time. Some things were cute but not what I want in fabric.
