Payback.

Remember this keychain from NASA?  It is now a bit of a joke in the family.  Friends on facebook were suggesting I make Carl a keychain for his birthday.  

IMG_2189Carl's keychain was solar powered.  I tried to mimic that by using glow in the dark yarn.  It works surprisingly well.  I wouldn't want to use this yarn on a very big project though.  It smells funny. 

I blogged about this in detail over at ChristyNelson.net.  Included is a tutorial on how to work with plastic canvas.  IMG_2190 We may live in Husker country now but once a Sooner, always a Sooner. 

He actually wants to use it as a keychain.  Go figure.

This wasn't all he got.  I also told him to buy tickets to see Winton Marsalis.  Anyone want to go with him?

    Me me me me! Too bad there are 3 too many states between us. I like the keychain you made. You are a clever one.

  3. NO WAY!!!! I am the biggest Sooner fan in the world (okay, maybe second biggest after my brother, he named his kids Norman 1 and Norman 11, just like MJ)! My neighbor named his cat Longhorn so I didn't feel even a little bad when I ran over him, almost by accident.

    SOONER BORN! SOONER BRED! SOONER DEAD!

  4. That's too cool! I made Alex these sweatpants um, two years ago with an embroidered lizard on the leg that had glow-in-the-dark eyes. He still wears them. He's even dug them out of the good will pile. Now I need glow-in-the-dark yarn.
