That's awesome, I totally love it! I love cicadas too, I think they're cute little things. When we had some earlier here in Australia, I took heaps of photos of them. For the life of me I can't figure out why they are so unpopular in the US. They are one of the sounds of summer here! Smiley

hey, if you can't beat 'em...join 'em, right? 

great work on the wristband!  the t-shirt material must make it all soft and non-irritating against the skin.  a key factor to wristbands.  as for them (cicadas, not your wristbands) being unpopular in the US...it's only when there like 8 billion of them and that only happens ever 37 years or something like that.  otherwise, they're pretty "classic summer sounds."  unfortunately, i think all the stupid box-elders here in the Midwest must have eaten them b/c i haven't heard any yet (i'm a east coast transplant).  then again, we're practically underwater here...so maybe i'll just have to make a wrist band to tide myself over.

I am happy to mail these out to anyone who would like one.  I'm charging $10 for them at my booth, and I'll ship for free to people outside DC.  Unless you're overseas, then I'd have to charge some for shipping.

Craftpunk: a most excellent job on the wristband. Thanks for listing a price for them. I am making them too and that's excactly how much I will be charging for mine! Have you had time to check out the "wrist band frenzy" post?

Any suggestions for a background paint, other than my pathetic attempt at splatters?  I'd love it to have a more gritty graff feel, and polka dots don't seem to be cutting it. 

If you take a piece of wire screening (like for windows) and an old toothbrush and some runny paint (perhaps textile ink would work), you can get some interesting speckling. Just dip brush in paint, shake off excess, hold screen over fabric, and rub toothbrush across it (screen works best if in some type of wooden frame to keep it straight, as opposed to bendy). That's how people spatter cabinets in country style houses, but with the right colors, I think it could be more 80s-fabulous than speckled hen.

i used to do that in girl scouts all the time.  anyways, i just did polka dots for the other wristbands.
