So one night, at 11.30pm, Max
+ I decided to sew something epic.
She had a tonne of the most ugliest coloured stretchknits you could ever imagine, and didn't know what to do with them all. Somehow we nutted out the most awesomest idea since they invented the wheel! ((ok maybe not That Awesome, but it was Epic))
We'd make hoodies that looked like Mummy shrouds ((Inspired by b-grade horror films + one of our favourite bands songs "The Mummy's Shroud" -By the Bloodsucking Zombies from Outer Space))
Five hours later ((YES THATS RIGHT! We didn't finish until way past 4am)), and much serging, we finally came up with THESE ((We thought taking photos under the hosue would be scary))
((Oh yeh that's a little mummy doll Max made for her friend. He's wrapped in bandages))
We cut the ugly fabrics into strips ((we only had one pair of good scissors)) Then serged them ito what seemed like endless lengths of fabric. We were hyper on coca cola + made up stupid jokes. Really stupid. They're not even funny if I tell them to you now. Anyway. They are pretty similar, except hers is lined in this horrid creepy medical-bandage fabric ((Which she has plans for leggings with)) and I lined mine half with leopard print and half with ugly fabric. I also have an ipod pocket on my sleeve
Anyway, we were out the front taking a picture, and this man for Origin Energy asked if we were twins.... wow... so not.
Here's some W.I.P. shots we got Betty California to take::
The beginnings... ugly fabric.
A shirt... sort of..
Keep on keepin' on.
Which one is the front?!!??!??!
((Piles of two))
