Believe it or not, mullets were really cool. Seriously. All the popular boys had mullets. All of my favorite celebrities had mullets. If there was boy I had a crush on during my teen years, I can guarantee you he had a mullet. Only we didn't call them mullets back then. It was just cool hair. Look how sexy these guys were:
Later, when the world decided mullets were no longer cool, we began to poke fun at the ol' 'do:
What I love best about the mullet is what it stood for:
Business up front and party in the back!!!!!
Who couldn't embrace that philosophy?
For July's sewing challenge I asked the participants to sew something that had multiple looks or purposes.
I called it the 2-in-1 Challenge, and you can check out our homepage here:
My goal was to create reversible place mats. One side would be pretty and on display most of the time. The other side would be plainer and stain-resistant and used during meal times. That is kind of like business up front and party in the back, right? Turns out that in the midst of my place mat making venture, we had some family (Mr. Ricochet's cousin and her husband) from out of state come visit us. They live full time in a RV, touring the US. We had a blast visiting and touring around town with them. I decided to make 2 extra place mats as a parting gift.
So you can see my Mullet Mats have more than one look AND multiple purposes as well. What do you think? Ever have a crush on a Mullet Man? Ever watch Joe Dirt? Ever sew a place mat?
Thanks for taking the time to peruse my little blog. Double thanks to all my new follows. You rock!
Happy crafting and big hugs from Montana,
