    Mr. Potato head as a tortilla. I'll make another eventually, this one was just to see if it would even work. I used fleece between the two pieces of cloth to grip the plastic pieces better than I think batting would. So far it is holding up!

    Very, very cute!

    I noticed the eye patch. Just wanted to mention this website for information on getting the eyes to work together:

    My daughter benefited greatly from vision therapy, so just wanted to pass this on.

    Thank you! He has been on intense patching (after school until bed and all weekend) and we have a followup next week. I didn't realize vision therapy was even an option, now I'll have time to research and I'll be able to talk to his doctor about it! Thank you so much!

    I went through patching as a child. Although that eye is still significantly weaker, I definitely think it helped. Looking back, i'm very thankful my mom was so vigilant about forcing me to patch even though I hated it so much at the time. It takes a lot of dedication.

    Oh, yeah. Nice work. I guess you could call it Mr. Tortilla Head.

    As a former little kid teacher who saw first hand how hard it is to get kids to wear their patches, my hat is off to you! (he will thank you when he is much bigger....)

    Also love the Tortilla Potato Head, very clever
