Something funny for the sewing box

I spotted this silly measuring tape at Yozo Craft and had to get one for my mum. A tiny, goofy thank you for sewing me endless wonderful goodies. And... fine, I'll confess. I got one for myself, too. I can never resist a panda with a removable ear.

oh gosh, this is so cute! hmm, I'm thinking my girls would definitely want one each, we just saw the pandas at the DC zoo and they already love stealing my measuring tape... :)

Grandma G said...

Oh, so we have twins? How fun! Good thing you got 'em when you did, 'cause now they're all gone. Panda was definitely the cutest!

I love mine (and so does Miss C). Let's get 'em together someday! ;)

Love,
Mum

I actually have one of these in my sewing kit!!!

They're all so cute! It would be a perfect piece for a kid's starter sewing kit!

Jonni said...

Just darling! :)

I L.O.V.E. this! My problem is, I always strip the little retractables so they no longer retract. Any tips for avoiding that??

Thank you for sharing your fabulous finds all the time!

So sweet! That's so much nicer than my boring measuring tape. Need to get one too.

Curses! I headed straight over to Yozo but all the pandas were gone. I managed to spend a lot of money anyways by telling myself this stuff is pure stocking stuffer gold. Thanks for the link - they're probably wondering what happened with the run on pandas!

Meredith said...

Darn, all the pandas are sold out! The piggy with the heart-shaped snout is pretty tempting though...

Oh my, this brings back memories.
When I was very small - maybe 4 or 5 - in 1950, the elderly Oma who take care of me had a little Steiff-like dog that had a sign on it's dog-tag: Pull tongue to measure.
The tongue was a retractable measuring tape.
I didn't know what a ton-gee-oo was for the longest time. It was a mystery.
Thank you for reminding me about this.

Adorable! I went over to YozoCraft and I love the stuff, they have not replenished the pandas but they have a cute bear!
Thanks for the link!

That panda is too cute! I bought a Pinocchio (pull the nose) and a chicken (pull the egg) measuring tape a few years ago. One was to give and one to keep... I still have them both. You're smarter... next time I'll buy two that are the same!
