All masterminded by the brilliant rubykhan, using Minipops as her inspiration... I can't wait until she finishes The Royal Tenenbaums!!!

  12. I love the Flip Flop Flyin site! Has the originator of the pixel icons seen this stitchy homage to his minipops? I bet he would think these are cool.

  13. He has seen some. I actually started these a few years ago when I had no money for Christmas gifts. The reaction was so great, and I was asked if I wanted to sell them. I figured I should write to Craig from Minipops to see if that was ok, or if I could license the designs, but unfortunately it was just as he was putting out his Minipops book, so he couldn't officially allow it so I've stuck to just the odd gift and personal project. He did think they were pretty neat though. :)
