Holy cats!  I can't think of a single thing that would be a better use of that dress.

I like the new hoodie, and I think the lining on the hood add a nice touch to it.

Of the topic, I have been hanging around this forum for the last half year, and from the point of view of someone that rides a motorcycle every day, it is interesting to see how the 'moto' style ends up in the oddest places around here.  For the daily motorcycle driver, these things have a purpose.  In terms of the off-center zipper on jackets, it serves two purposes.  1. The underneath panel goes all the way to the other side, so that the chest ends up having two layers of protection from the wind.  2. Most quality jacket makers will offer expansion panels that zip in-between the two zippers so that the jacket lasts 20+ years without having to be retailored for expanding guts.

Also, wearing a hoodie while going 70 mph is not my idea of a good time.

Anyway, back to the topic, I think you should add some white moto-style zippers on the cuffs.  (They keep the wind from going up the sleeve).  It would add to the look of the hoodie.

Haha!  I was just wondering again, what "moto-style" meant.  Now I know.  I don't even like wearing a hood to drive a car, messes with my peripheral vision.  However, none of this practical stuff diminishes the coolness off the recon.  I do think the zippered cuffs would look cool.

That's an astonishing improvement.  I've been trying to work up the nerve to recon.  The hard part is finding something I like enough to bother with, but don't like so much that I'll be crushed if I ruin it.  Sounds like your 11- year old jumper was the perfect thing!

1000% improvement!  And the color combo makes it look like a pristine vintage find.  Awesome!

What an awesome way to display an awesome find!

These are great!  The toes with bell-nails make me chuckle out loud.

I've heard of using Samoyed hair yard, but I always wonder what dog hair items would smell like if they got wet.  Eek!

Thanks for the help with the mirrors. I just love the way you decorated your car. I have been wanting to try this ever since i saw one in craft magazine.

You're welcome!  And thanks for the compliments.

Thanks to everyone for the compliments!  It was a laugh-a-minute doing that thing.

That is a fantastic presentation of that phrase!  I think it's quite esthetically pleasing w/o the border, but it might be poignant if it had a really complicated and wild border... you know, the physical maifestation of much sublimated rage.

I found this post a couple weeks ago and am very excited about it.  I've already scouted out my local shelters from the list (http://www.h4ha.org/shelter-directory/index.php) and am working with the ManFlesh to get some blankets made.  I will post them on the Pet board when they're done and link to this post, so maybe more people can learn about it!
