Manly crafting at it's finest. I'd say it's just a guy thing...but duct tape rocks! If I were to be stranded on an island, I would definitely want some. Although, if it were a warm island I may sweat too much in his shirt. Yes, I said shirt. Of duct tape. It even has a zipper.
Where did he get the notion to make one? No clue. I am not even sure if he knows. It does have some tweaking to be done...he is already planning the next one. He has allowed himself the help of his mom who had reminded him that she may know a thing or two about constructing a pattern :P He did do an awesome job for winging it though I must say.
And because he found purple plaid duct tape and just couldn't wait to use it....a belt. Which he has worn the past few days. It seems to hold up quite nicely. Looks cute too. Okay, not cute...he's a 14 year old boy, let's call it ruggedly chic.
