So the Max Suit has been taking a back seat to all of my other recent projects but Halloween is coming up and I need to finish the thing. Not to mention, I really hate having a ton of UFOs happening, and this is a major UFO. Note to self (and the rest of you have to hold me accountable for this!): Don’t take on MASSIVE custom orders just because you can.
“Can you make me a hat?”
“Ooh, can you make me a sweater?”
“Ooh Ooh! Can you make me a Superhero Suit?!”
“Sure thing dude”
That’s pretty much how that conversation happened. And of course, just because I can make a customer or friend something, doesn’t mean I should. These huge orders (multiples, afghans, Max Suits…etc) always take forever and eventually I just want the thing to be finished, which, ironically, does not give me the energy to actually finish them. Does that happen to you?
Oh well, regardless, I am finishing the suit and I am actually enthused about it. I’ve gotten a lot done in the past few days. I finished the second leg and am working on both feet right now, then I’ll move onto the sleeves and knucks (fingerless mitts with a mitten flap) and I’ll have to add ears and find some fuzzy fabric for the tail. Oh, and add a zipper.
It can be done and I hope it will be done by the time classes start back up! Or…shortly thereafter 🙂
