We FINALLY finished it!!!

Yep, we finally finished the pirate car!!! We worked on it the last few days of spring break, and got most of it done (in good enough shape to give to J's sister)...we can add brake lights and front part thing later....
Steering wheel (before we finished the top) with the key part and mirror part
We used shimmery silver fabric for the mirror.
She loves it! Sorry for the blur, she doesn't like to sit still! Here you can see the red crushed velvet on the seat.
The whole thing!
We put some more wood contact paper on the dash
Now that it's done, we both agreed that we are never undertaking a project like this ever ever EVER again.

Imaginary friend, hook roll

This week I finished a few things, including an imaginary friend that I mailed off to my friend Cody on Tuesday:
He named him Walter!

I also finished a crochet hook roll, since my other zippered booklet pouch thing didn't hold much anymore:

I made a half circle skirt out of the same fabric as my hook roll, but I wasn't able to get a picture of it the day I wore it. I'll have to post pictures later

Works in Progress

I started embroidering this t shirt with a drawing by Jason Sho Green, who has some really funny drawings and such. 
J and I also worked on his sister's Cozy Coupe, which we are transforming into a pirate ship. 
Here's J sticking on the wood contact paper, after we had spray painted the body black with special plastic spray paint.
Back view, we're planning on making a license plate or getting one of those bike ones.

One of the front supports for the top.
We still have to cover the top in canvas and cover the seat with some red crushed velvet ridiculousness. We're hoping we can get it all done over spring break.
