In the Pirates of the Caribbean Swap I made this up cycled cigar box for my partner.
She had this image on a t-shirt from her wist so I thought "That could look good in felt"
The black is a kind of snakeskin textured felt that I thought was kind of fun. I used spray adhesive to stick all the black on.
I cut out the clover and crossbones in regular green felt then used a running stitch around. Break out the glue gun next and stuck those on as well.
Now for the inside (in which it is bigger on...)
I saw a good opportunity in partner as she was a PotC fan AND a Doctor Who fan! Who could resist the uncanny coincidence of 2 Capt Jacks?
The fabric is one I have been saving the remnants from a bag I made years ago, thinking there had to be some perfect project for it. This was it.
I used (again) good old spray adhesive and got that fabric on good and tight, then hot glued a pretty black and silver ribbon to hide any mistakes along the bottom.
Then it got fun.
I found 2 images where the Capt Jacks happened to be pointing their guns in opposite directions and printed those out on photo paper. The hard part was getting the eyeline to match up and any kind of decent perspective. I am not too skilled in the computer arts.
The quotes were some of my partner's favs from her questionnaire and I made up a kind of story of flirting going on between them.
and of course there can be only one.....
Nah, I think the world would be a bit dimmer if they highlandered themselves down to one.
Thanks for checking this out!
