Deviantart user GrungeIndiani has made this excellent set of poseable Dethklok soft sculptures! Aside from being hilarious, the animated Metalocalypse show is partly responsible for my love of metal and I have always wished Cartoon Network would have put out more merchandise from it. More photos reenacting scenes from the show are in her gallery. Well done!

don't throw that away!

I never get rid of any fabric scraps, as it's in my nature to be  cheap  cost-efficient. Odd cutting leftovers can be used to piece a back on smaller quilts. Even tiny bits of an inch or two can be put to good use: ones with nice patterns can be fused to make quilted postcards or mug rugs, like the Asian ones I made below. (fused bindings too!) Less-attractive or damaged scraps, including batting, become stuffing for pet beds I make for charity- more on that later!
