Well, my beloved Cleveland Browns are having another terrible year. But I still remain a loyal fan and I'm attempting to pass my fandom on to the next generation. (Yes, I've evil.) Last time we saw our nephew, I had him cheerfully repeating "Go, Browns!" (Cutest thing ever -- toddlers are a blast that way.)
I was at Old Navy a couple of weeks ago and I saw a nephew-sized sweater in brown and orange -- Browns colors! The only drawback was the Old Navy logo on the front, but hey... I can fix that!
I didn't take a "Before" shot, but here's the sweater after I covered the logo with my patch:
I cut the helmet from some Browns fabric I had, then I fused it to felt and fused the whole patch to the sweater. Then I machined a satin stitch in orange around the helmet piece to secure it. Would you like to see a closer up photo of it? Of course you would!
(Hrm... that's a tad blurry. Oh, well. You get the idea.)
The sweater itself is adorable -- I love that the sleeves are brown and the body is orange.
Alas, they don't make them in adult sizes. But I'm used to disappointment -- I'm a Browns fan, after all.
Having said that, I still gotta end this post with: Go, Browns!
