^the first caution tape fell off, so they put more on and tied santa on too, since legally to have things sticking out from your truck you have to have a red flag on it. i remember that from amy doing drivers ed. but then he fell off, and we were sad for him.

recycled clutch

this is what my workspace looked like for a while.  the clutch is made out of plastic bags, fused together with an iron.  hence the name recycled.  i then painted the plastic with acrylic paint, and sewed crazily over it.  and i don’t think i’ll post my trade secrets all over the internet, so that’s all i’m telling you about how to make it.

and artistic photos of the clutch finished.  and me.
