Panty Hose + Googly Eyes = Big Surprise!
So I was googling (Google(tm)ing?), for those things that were popular in the 70s and early 80s. This thing was basically a minature pom-pom with googly eyes and sort of Hang-Ten (tm) logo looking feet. Sometimes these puff balls would have a ribbon emblazoned with an encouraging line "Reach For the Stars," or "Best Student." People would have them on their desks, the more daring on their shoulder or next to their koala ben clip on their label. I want to say they were sold as "Warm Fuzzies."
I had a friend who sold them in her "store."
Her store was her school desk.
I never did find an image of this crap of yore, but upon my futile quest I happened upon the most wonderful undiscovered craft.
Perfect for the thrifty green thumb, pantyhose plants!
