Felt Mr. Potato Head was REMOVED

Unfortunately, I had to remove the Felt Mr. Potato Head tutorial from my blog. I was contacted by HASBRO, Inc. and was asked to remove the tutorial because it violated the copyright name and looked too similar to the original. Oops! I never even considered a copyright issue……..I was just having fun with felt! It was sure a fun project and I wish that I could still share the images and such but I apologized to HASBRO and informed them that I would no longer keep my post up on my blog. Kind of a bummer…….but I do understand and once it was brought to my attention, I didn’t hesitate to remove it. So again, sorry, but the tutorial is gone. I may create some other fun felt toy that is similarly fun, without crossing any lines…..but that will be in the future. (And sorry, this means I can’t send you any images of the long lost potato head. And if you have my images on your site, please remove them. Bummer!)
