Iron Craft Challenge #9 - And the Oscar goes to. . .

This week's challenge has been the most fun, so far. I love making items inspired by pop culture, so to get to make something inspired by a favorite movie was right up my alley.

The hardest part for me was choosing which movie I was going to use. When I first read about this challenge one movie popped into my head. It is a childhood favorite of mine and was made a few years before I was born, but still I think I have watched this movie a hundred or more times.

 (the original 1971 version)

I love this movie so much, except for the candy man. He still gives me the creeps!

What kid didn't want to be one of the lucky golden ticket winners and get a chance to eat their way through the factory? I know I did. I especially wanted to be Violet, because we both chew gum a lot. Plus, she was the one who got to eat the giant gummy bear.

Oh, what I would give to eat a giant gummy bear, and not put on 50 pounds. :)

Okay, back to the challenge. I have been using my cassette tape iPod cozy for a few years now, so I figured it was time for a new one. And what is the one item that everyone associates Willy Wonka with?

The Wonka Bar with the Golden Ticket inside. So, I made my very own Wonka Bar iPod cozy.

Isn't it funny? It is entirely made of felt. Cutting the letters freehand was a challenge, but they worked out pretty well. And, the pink color matches my iTouch case perfectly!

Now I too can feel like Charlie Bucket!
