Bacon repairs!

Mom to the rescue! I made this Bacon Buddy (he or one of his many siblings is my profile pic) for the Boy Scouts to play Steal the Bacon a few years ago, and they have been playing hard! Last time must have been a particularly rough game. I was sitting there not really paying attention and suddenly I’m surrounded by a dozen teenage boys asking, β€œcan you fix him?” Poor Mr. Bacon lost an eye! Yes, I can fix him! But my son and I had this other idea :laughing:


The patch is half a magic circle that I sc onto the head only at the top and then surface slip stitched all the way around. You can lift it up and see the X where his eye used to be!
