Been pretty busy lately (read: yesterday) so this one took a little time. I know that there are at least 7 craft-worthy quotes from The Office every week, 9 if Creed is in it, but this is one of my all time favorites because I am sure most of us have had a job where it's exactly what we were feeling/thinking/screaming on the inside!
I was hoping for a certain look with this one. Specifically I wanted it to look like something someone at Dunder-Mifflin scibbled on scratch paper when they should have been working. I cut it from a much larger piece of fabric with two different scissors, thinking this is some scap left over from making a "paper" football or something. I didn't use a ring or other holder, instead held it reasonably tight in one hand while stitching with the other. I hope by over-handling the fabric and letting it flop around it got some kind of this-piece-of-paper-has-been-on-my-desk-for-a-while look. I chose this font since it was small and I could try to do it a little messy for a hand-written look.
Honestly this quote was the first thing that came to mind when I started my "I'd Rather Be..." project. I thought with no internet and no books being allowed if I could do THIS at work then it would be a personal victory given what it says and what it stands for. I just wasn't sure how to present it until the Dunder-Mifflin/paper idea hit me.
