1  Manos? You Mean the Hands of Fate? in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by caribbeanjerk on: January 23, 2006 03:21:54 PM
One day in the spring of senior year, I was talking with my good friends Matt and Phil while wasting time at pep band.  Somehow out of this conversation came a discussion of MST3K, and subsequently "Manos, The Hands of Fate," which is just about the worst movie ever made (besides maybe Gigli), but still tends to be their favorite of the parodies.  Seriously, I know at least one guy in the movie killed himself before the premiere, maybe more. Well anyways, I had just finished knitting a scarf, and while thinking of those bizarre, giant hands of fate, I put the two and two together.
Phil would be the recipient, as Matt was too man to wear a scarf apparently.
Unfortunately, I am a huge procrastinator, and I didn't get myself to make it until this past winter break.  Well, he wouldn't have worn it in the summer anyways, right?!

If you are missing out on Manos and need some reference, here ya go: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060666/

Here we go:

The scarf!

With Phil!

Basically just fleece, my sewing machine, and a bit of appliqueing.  Now back to the studies!

I was so amazed with your purse that I tweaked it a little bit and made my own version for my POTO-loving friend!  I gave it to her today and got tons of compliments on it at school Smiley.  One of my friends even said she never wanted to stop looking at it!  Basically all I changed was I made the body with cardboard (for some reinforcement), then put the duct tape around it.  Fake rose instead of duct tape, no sewing - all stuck on strong.  It was my first one ever and I am very happy (and proud) of how it turned out.  Thanks for the inspiration!


PS I hope this works...my first post with pictures - finally I have conquered my laziness and brought my digital camera from upstairs to the basement!

EDIT:  Because I couldn't get it to work...but I did now!  Ha-Ha!
