A backwards step


Now that the whole Christmas/New Year shebang is over for another year, I can take a step backwards with some handmade christmas pressies.

I had these little square panels printed aaaaaages ago and they've been sitting in the stash just waiting for a project.

All printed from from my original hand drawn illustrations......  as you can tell from the wonkiness of Pacman.

I just overlocked the edges and made them into simple unlined zippers pouches. One for each of my older nephews (to hold their iTunes vouchers), and the Owl for Little Miss (in her favourite colour).

The funniest thing about the Pacman pouch, was watching the boys on Christmas Eve and waiting to see how long it took for them to work out what it was. First guess was Space Invaders......

Oh Galaga, Pacman, Donkey Kong and Frogger. How I miss thee.

You just gave me a big flashback. How much more pleasant would it be to have Frogger than Call of Duty in one's lounge room? We are not there yet but they are channelling it from their friends' houses. Now I'll oil my zimmer frame.

I think you may have tapped into a certain age-demographic's nostalgia for early computer games there. You might be onto something! xxn

I love the owl, but I must admit I have a bit of a soft spot for Pac Man.

Definitely Galaga et al but would you really forgo Angry Birds?

I really like the pacman one. I can even imagine the ghosts moving around the screen...
