Now what kind of a crazy title is that?
Nobody starts off a blog post talking about armpits.
Nobody, except possibly me? Well, there is some logic here.
To rewind just a bit...
(I suppose we don't really rewind anymore, but anybody that still has a VCR will get the rewind reference.)
...anyway, backup to when I finished making my men's shirt pillows.
Since I had cut the fronts and backs of the shirts for the pillows, all I had left over after that project was a big pile of sleeves and armpits. (Ah ha, now I'm beginning to make sense.)
So I cut them up into 2" strips and waited for some inspiration to strike.
It wasn't too long before I decided to make a garland to match those pillow on the front porch.
I tied the strips to some rope and added a few burlap strips to give it more texture.
I tied them on by folding the strip in half and then passing it under the rope.
Then I pulled the ends through the loop and
pulled it tight.
I looks a little bit like a men's tie when you are done.
Lately I've really been trying to use up things I have on hand and not spent a lot. So instead of buying cornstalks to decorate the porch posts, I bunched some perennial grasses that had been cut down for the winter.
It worked out great because I didn't have room in the garbage can for them anyway.
A pitch fork and old rusty shovel were added to the posts and tied on with the same garland.
This shirt-off-his-back porch fix-up is finally done.
It was a really quick, really easy project.
In fact I'd go so far as to say it was "no sweat".
And that is pretty important when you are talking about a project involving armpits!
Hope you are having an easy, breezy fall!
