I love that you've distressed the material to make it look more like a bit of scrap paper!  And the blue lines, red line.  Of course, if it were on my desk for very long, it'd have at least coffee ring on it.   Wink

Well, here it is, such as it is: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=281106.0 .
3823  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Thanksgiving / I was a Pilgrim Cheerleader. on: December 02, 2008 09:51:52 PM


I made the apron and cap out of bleached muslin and much help and guidance from GraceOblivious and her post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=280005.0 .  I made the buckles and their straps out of foam core, aluminum foil and vinyl and the pom poms from a cheapo plastic table cloth from the dollar store and some cloth tape.  All of this stuff was laying around the house so this was a no-cost project.  Didn't realize how the dog's leash and the camera might further de-authenticate my look.  Oops.

Closer view of the cap. 

This is one of the few times I didn't read all the directions carefully before beginning and I messed up the cap because of it.  Luckily, it's just a goofy costume and no one noticed. I know it looks like my team lost, but the event hadn't even started so I don't know what that sad face is about.



"Ok Mistress T, but why?" Well, The ManFlesh's pals have an event 'most every Thanksgiving called the Turkey Trot which is a series of "athletic" events completed by teams of 2 all the while they're wearing latex gloves of beer under their chins like turkey wattles.  Yes, they're a "bunch of yahoos who like to drink" and yes, it's fun and funny as heck.  That said I'm not athletic, nor am I "athletic" so I decided to be a pilgrim cheerleader.  Any excuse for a costume.

I'll have to look into that!  Thanks!

TheMistressT, I often forget we live in a sort of green-living paradise.  (I live in Portland). 

I love the idea of tea tree oil - nice and clean!  I'm going to make some this afternoon.

I'm in Portland, too!  And I think I tend to assume things based on how it is here.  I made some yesterday, scented with sweet orange essential oil (just over /5 oz) and am washing my first load now!  I have a front loader and used the amount that I use of my store bought stuff, so we'll see how it goes.  The recipe I used suggested 1 oz of oil, but in the interest of keeping costs down I used half and it smells plenty strong.  But then I noticed how strongly store-bought smells compared to how much it makes the laundry smell and I'm wondering about the result.

I've thought about trying this but was wondering if it was cost effective.  I've had some good results with The Mom Pack.

Ooo! What's he Mom Pack?

Great work!  I love pegboard!  It's so full of promise and options and has such a timeless/old-school vibe about it. Back in college I worked at a building supply retailer/hardware store and there are SO many cool, esoteric "pegs" available.  Siiiiiigh.

...and they all look like really nice boys.

Don't they?  Like the kind you could take home to mother if your sister wasn't such a trashy, thieving whore.
How do you know my sister?!!!  Shocked   Huh Shocked   Huh Shocked  Huh

Darlin', everybody knows your sister.

What a great way to say that!  I love that idea and may have to do something with it. As usual, your stitches are lovely and white on black is great.
