Note the type of event - we are competitive, sure, but it's all about the crazy with us...
But one of the jobs designated to to my son and myself was the acquisition of "buffs" - those lengths of cloth that differentiate one team from another. This term became common since the advent of Survivor, as each tribe had a different coloured buff. Son and I had fun at Fabricland the other night. We could have gone basic - red, yellow, blue, green. We could have gone cheap and we even checked out the clearance bin, but MAN, were those fabrics ugly. There's a reason they were in clearance, I guess. But I was not subjecting myself or my family to wearing them...
So we hit the novelty fabric section - we had a hard time narrowing it down, but we finally came up with:
Owls and of course, Flaming Skulls.Son has assigned each team a buff - I believe am a Lizard, his Dad a Monkey, and he kept the Flaming Skull for himself.
What a surprise.
And, a note from the comments:
Can you share the source of the skirt pattern, please? I just love it.
I lurk here from time to time and am always impressed with your projects.

I love this for two reasons - First, a lurker leaves a comment. (Trust me, we little bloggers LOVE comments... especially from lurkers). Second, I get to share the talents of Elizabeth - she's a local designer and teacher and her stuff is outstanding.
