Super Duper Summer Update: Underwears!
And you'll notice the front part has the CATO institute logo on it that, to further the irony, was on the back side of the shirt. It's all topsy-turvy this message for my underwear, and that's why I'm not so sure I'm bringing the right bit of irony in making this pair out of a CATO Institute t-shirt. Because, you see, with the leftover shirt material, I made this cool Felix the Cat stencil for the butt part of the second pair -- I'm getting better at stenciling (and, so you don't have to hunt through other posts, I got the stencil from Kitty Buttons). But see, here is the crux of my dilemma: If I put the CATO Institute drivel on my butt and front-butt as an ironic statement to kinda sorta make fun of these bozos, then what is it saying to my beloved Felix? I am in a quandary, but I will have to put off thinking about this for a bit -- the important thing is that I now have underwear and things were becoming quite dire in my collection, so I am not gonna complain about no CATO Institute thing on my butt.
Last note, I made the stencil from freezer paper, and lightly ironed it onto the material before stenciling with fabric paint.
