Unless they're my own. Then they're friendly.
So I've got this thing about germs. Not all of them. Just the unfriendly ones. Unfriendly germs live places bleach and antibacterial chemicals cant go. Some hotels, furnished rentals, college boy apartments. Shady couches, the Starbucks plushy chairs. Any plushy chair says Luke. The one in our apartment laundry room gives me the heeby jeebies. Our plushy chairs are okay. I know where they came from. I saw them arrive in the plastic from the store before coming to live with us. Interestingly, the mountains...all friendly germs. Sitting on the floor, doesn't bother me, I know what kind of germs are there. Swimming in a lake doesn't even bother me. Those germs are friendly. They make themselves known.
So anyway, there's this episode of Big Bang Theory. Penny gets a chair. Sheldon thinks he likes it.
You can watch it here.
Hard cleanable paintable furniture can be revived and restored. Plushie furniture can NOT. Just sayin'.
So remember my NerdWars knitting competition? We had a team challenge to make what was in the chair. Meet my Unfriendly Germs.
I did do the bottom a bit differently. I crocheted the bottom on instead of sewing it so that the bottom cupped in. This helped them sit a bit more solidly.
Anyway, these guys make me laugh. I hope you enjoy them too!
