For My Sister
Since she is quite obsessed with the distillers, I wanted to make her something that was related to the band...however she seemed to own almost every sort of merchandise they have sold...Then I realized she didn't have a jean jacket...My original plan was to create a more scratchy and patched up vest like my own, but my mother threw a fit...saying she didn't want my sister wearing something so hideos...uh-huh, yeah ok...anyways...
This is what I came up with and it passed my moms standards...
A simple plain jean jacket with their logo painted on the back...collar and cuffs lined with animal pattern fuzzy material...she could sew a few patches and put her band pins on it as well...

I also made an a bracelet with beaded lettering spelling out some lyrics from on of their songs...but I already gave it to her...(wasn't able to take a photo of it)

Then I decided to take some old cds that refuse to play...and covered them in a few magazine ads I ripped out and cut to place them in a mosiac theme...As well as placed a song tittle/or a random line of a song...


And I made some record bowls to give as well and plan to fill them with goodies...Once again all homemade...(will post photos when they're all done up)
-Belgium chocolate dipped pretzels
-Chocolate spoons covered in crushed candy cane
-Shortbread cookies
-Sugar cookies
-Jam tarty thingies (not sure what they're called)
And a few little pieces of candies and candy canes....
