Although I love designing and illustrating, sometimes it’s fun to take time off from the computer in my creative endeavors. This has resulted in many fun things, including concocting lemonade, painting a chinese waving cat, making the one and only Fullitzer Prize, whittling a derby car, crafting seven giant paper raindrops from the Yellow Pages, and creating furry monster portraits of my friends. Nothing and nobody are safe!
So at a recent Creative Night (an evening event where I invite people over to make things), I sewed three sunny side up egg coasters. Any surface they’re placed on automatically becomes an impromptu and unlikely frying pan. I have yet to test them on guests to see who opts for banging their hot cups down with a SPLAT and who chooses to gingerly place their beverages on the delicate yolks with care.
All you need are two layers of white felt cut in various shapes, a yellow or orange circle for the yolk, and some thread (white). First, sew the yolk onto the top white layer, then sew the two white layers together. Ta da!
