Sackbot has a face

Because my oldest son thought that the sackbot (wooden robot sackboy) was to dark, he wanted me to add a face to it thus turning it into a sackboy.  So I went to the craft store and found these buttons, which I thought were awesome, and sewed them onto the sackbot.   
My son said that it was strange.  Not good strange, not bad strange, just strange.  At least my husband likes him.  My son did take him and added him to his collection.  I think the eyes make him look dizzy or hypnotized.  While at the store I saw some 3D horn buttons.  Now I want to make a devil sackboy.
This cozy, which now houses my phone, is not new.  I made it sometime last year.  There is no pattern either.  I just garter stitched it and decreased it for the amount that I needed for my phone.  I'm sharing it today because the button is new.  It had no button closure before.  There is a braided loop that wraps around the button, and then you pull on the knotted ends to tighten it.  This is a temporary cosy while I make the iPhone hoodie.  I figured out why the iPhone hoodie looks to small.  I am using to small of a needle.  The pattern calls for size 3 needles and mine are smaller than that.  I think that they might be a size one.  Thats what I get for not checking the needle size first.

  4. The Sackbot is great -- reminds me somehow of tribal carvings or totems.
