OF ALL THINGS! You know there is a story, so here it is: Several months ago, my dear friend, Jim...brought his used, very dirty, and mostly destroyed Otter Box to me. Why, you ask?
Not to worry, I asked the very same question. Jim, or Mr. G (as I often call him), thought it would be amusing to challenge me to make a piece of 'art' from this pitiful bit of garbage. It is so like him to do that....for laughs. Well, I thought it was a nutty idea and told him I'd have to think about it.
So....it has been taking up space in my little sewing area for way too long. My first urge was to just chunk it into the garbage, after all, life is short and did I want to spend any time working on such things? No. But, then I got to thinking about it and decided he really wanted me to tell him I was unable to come up with an idea...and he would win. But...NO, I told myself...he can't win, so what can I do? I gave it a bit of thought, gave it a good cleaning and decided I could make a....
A bit of hand embroidery, a silly bit of wording and there you have it. It has to be a fitting end to the story, because this is all the time I will devote to this crazy Otter Box art thing. But, let it be said....I DID make something.
Didn't get the wording on the back quite lined up....but let's just look over that. It's ok. Now, do you think there will be a big rush to make Otter Box Art out there? I think we know I may be the only crazy person willing to even try it (that I am aware of)........and there is one benefit from this experience.....maybe my little attempt at art will keep this one item from the landfill!!! Or, not! Ok, Mr. G....expect this in your mailbox!!!
