Title: The Shirt We Don't Taco 'Bout Rises From the Ashes
Post by: TheMistressT on February 17, 2018 03:20:55 PM
In December, I sewed a ridiculous flannel taco shirt (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=453924.0) for The ManFlesh for xmas. Then in February he caught in on fire! While he was wearing it! Luckily, the shirt was the only thing harmed... not even the shirt he was wearing under it.



Well, it was practically brand new and dang if it didn't take for ever to make in the first place, so I decided to patch it. And not just any patch... a taco rising from the ashes patch (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=454271.0)! Well, from the flames that create ashes anyway.



I also had to replace part of the button placket... not super well, but it should hold and does its job.  ::)

Equal parts funny and fabulous! I mean, not the catching on fire bit, obviously, but the shirt and the solution are très fantastique!

Thanks! It was a challenging project that ended up OK! Also, he's not allowed to set fire to his clothes or his person ever again.

You did a great job on it!

Now he has to brag about the time 'he got caught on fire' every time he wears the shirt.

Nicely done! Maybe his next novel should NOT feature fire so prominently... just sayin’!  ::)

HAHAHAHAAAA! Exactly my thoughts. Fire and smoke, man, fire and smoke. If someone buys the one that his agent has out now, then it will not!

Oh my god that is hilarious! Such a cool touch that patch! I hope you don't have to do a second one in the future!

Thank you!

Recently the patch as started to lose structural integrity and itself will need mending. Sheesh!
