nerdplusneedle, I commented over on the post, but I love the Jesus doll. I love the details (quilted vest, buckles on his belt) that you add. And, I definitely don't mind the Walking Dead stuff that you post Smiley

roler, your posts have been making me hungry, lately! That looks delicious! My brother is also a big fan of putting eggs with leftovers, although he usually goes for an over-easy egg (I think I need to make him a shirt that says "Put an egg on it!").

Love it! I am several episodes behind on the Walking Dead this season, but seeing this makes me want to get myself caught up soon!

I love the details you've added (and the brim of the hat was worth the effort!), too!

CraftADDchick - That shirt is funny (and upside down for me  Tongue). I am sure everyone will get a good laugh out of it. Let us know how you do in the race! Let's hope a pink gorilla doesn't take you down.

LOL! I actually need a shirt that says, "I don't even run from zombies!" That is how much I do not run Smiley  We have a staff member who has done the Boston Marathon- she runs the mile (1/2 mile down the hill, 1/2 mile back up), then turns around and does it at least 2 more times. I think the Principal is "presenting" the shirt at our next staff meeting, but I'll be at a conference, so I'll miss it.

Maybe... I'll start some planning, just in case Smiley

Oooh, gozer trying to lure people to the Wordy side... Cheesy  While I love books (and TV... and movies... and games...) I've been a Team Textbook girl from before it being Textbook (Oh, Team S&M!) and I can't be swayed from my chosen nerdiness!  Grin

I will always be Team S & M in my Textbook heart Smiley

Prompt:  UFO!
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points:  WIP It!, UFO Bonus- Used to cover up a naked torso
Project Name: Faster Than a Pink Gorilla
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: This year, instead of having to make  6+ shirts for the winners of our school's annual Turkey Trot, the PE teacher bought some, so I was off the hook...for about 2 days. Then, when the Principal heard that a 6th grade social studies teacher was planning to run while wearing a pink gorilla suit, he asked if I could make a shirt for the winning staff member. I had more problems than I have ever had when cutting. First, the cut on the wording was too deep, and I cut through the carrier sheet. Second time, I forgot to mirror the text. Fortunately, the third try worked perfectly. But then, it wouldn't stick when I ironed it on! I had to cut the gorilla twice (first time, not deep enough, and then I ripped it ), and then I needed an x-acto to cut the added details. Thank goodness it's finished (and only slightly crooked)!
Project Picture:



If the picture is sideways, I'll fix it tomorrow- my phone doesn't like to upload photos to Craftster! And, the only thing I got done yesterday that I was able to use today was the outline cut of the gorilla. I cut the details today. The additional 2 attempts on the lettering, plus the weeding and ironing were also done today. It took well over an hour (closer to 2)!

These are a hoot!

Thanks! Yesterday, a girl picked one up (off of the bookcase, where it was holding up books), and asked me what it was for. I guess she is truly a child of the digital age!

What a great idea and so durable!  I can imagine a dino trophy for the one to read the most as well.

Thanks! I think they'll hold up pretty well. I was able to lift one of them up by the dinosaur, and the dino didn't pull off of the paver. 

I don't track the books they read in my class, but maybe I can make a trophy for the Language Arts teacher. The kids have weekly reading logs they need to complete, so maybe she can give an award to the kid who completed all of them (a set of bookends would be very appropriate!). I'll have to propose that to her. Thanks for the idea!

Way to go on all of the charity projects! I am impressed! Congratulations, Smeddley!

Wow, amazing job matching/mirroring the print on both sides of the vest -- can't imagine that level of perfection could possibly have been a happy accident!

OMG! It was pretty much an accident! I mean I took pains to make sure the print was straight when I cut the folded fabric, but I didn't even think about the matching and mirroring until it was too late. I CAN NOT believe my luck on the collar, especially.

That just proves how talented you are! You have skills that are just lying in wait, ready when you are...

I love the end of season project dumps! Not only am I drooling over such yummy looking foods, I am gathering up some gift ideas, too!

Hopefully, I can get a bit more on track for the next round. The fall always kicks my butt with the start of school.

 I can't believe I didn't finish all of the Textbook prompts! Sorry to my teammates!
