I don't know if it would actually say this, but it sure would be this fancy. Maybe it would say this, and maybe he would use it to keep his make up handy for blue man group auditions.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, I would be nice and try to explain it but... it would become one of those things where your friend is telling you about some show/movie/lifetime madefortvmovie they love and it involves a lot of character backstory, and they do such a good job at it that for a second you think the story is going to payoff. But then it doesn't. Never does.
Anyway, it's Arrested Development and you can at least watch the ten second clip.
I made this as a birthday gift for my boss at Sewn Studio, a fellow AD fan. I actually introduced her to the gospel of Arrested Development, so yeah. I'm pretty much her favorite now. It didn't dawn on me that I should make this exact thing until the day before her birthday, but it really wouldn't be as fun any other way.
I used Jeni's great drawstring bag tutorial. Whenever I make one of these I immediately want to make one for everyone I know. Then that never happens. I think next time I'll make it a Carl Weathers quote, "Baby, you got yourself a stew!" complete with embroidered hambone. Is this the beginning of a completely unreasonable series of AD themed bags? I would like that.
I'm not so much with the embroidery, but I'd like to practice more. This I just wrote on the fabric and then backstitched over. Then after I pieced everything together I added a scrap of batting under the exterior part of the bag and did some random hand quilting. Then my hand got bit off by a loose seal.
