I think this is the right forum for this... they don't have a 'crafting for evil and not good' category...lol

My guy and I do a lot of target shooting.  The pistols I have are all relatively old, and all needed new cases for when I transport them.

Since my daughter (peace-loving vegetarian) gives me grief about them (and I tend to like things that are 'just wrong'), I figured I'd get back at her by taking the cutest, saccharine-sweet image possible, and sewing a couple of gun-cases with it. 

It was a toss-up between Hello Kitty and the Care Bears.  Since I'm the LAST person to like the color pink, of course the pink kitties won out.

My guy friends (and firearms freaks, including a few police officers) think these are hilarious.  Especially since I truly hate Hello Kitty and all things girley and pink.  My daughter was somewhat extremely less enthusiastic. 

The pink fabric is flannel, the black is twill.  Between the layers, I put a thin layer of synthetic batting.  The edges are double-fold bias tape, and they close with Velcro.

It's good fun to go to the range, put Hello Kitty on the stand, and watch the macho-guys (who don't know me) snicker to themselves.  It's even better when they see that I'm a better marksman than they are. (But, I'm evil like that)

That is priceless! I love the irony! And that hello kitty print is adorable.

Ha!  The guys we don't know at our range don't like to be there when I shoot.  I think it would be even more awesome to show up with a pink pistol cozy!!  You've got me thinking!

This is great!! Cheesy

You are my hero!  Cheesy

This makes me want to make new cases for our guns out of rainbows and unicorns fabric.

Makes me think of the Kalishikitty t-shirts I've seen here and there. Smiley

cute! Have you seen that guy on the internet that paints handguns? You mail him your gun and he'll paint whatever you want on it. He's done like 8 jillion Hello Kitty ones; hilarious.  Cheesy

Also, i'm pretty peace loving too (i'm veg, and generally against war and violence), but if someone messes with me i am not opposed to... extreme and painful justice. haha. *i'm looking at you, guy who stole my bicycle*

As a peace loving vegetarian myself, I have to say this project totally rocks.
