Inspector Gadget


I know, I know a very unusual post for a craft blog, but at the weekend I had a chap come in to Stamp N Craft and ask if I could help him make a propellor for his hat. I must have looked completely bemused as he then explained that he was going to a fancy dress party as inspector gadget and wanted to attach a propellor to the hat.

My first thought was, no I can't help, but then inspiration hit me and I rushed off and grabbed some silver mirri, drew round a paper bin cut it into quarters and stuck it to a base. I then cut a cog shape out of mirri using my Making Memories Slice machine and stuck it in the middle. I found a bolt and some nuts lying around and made a hole so that it could be inserted into the hat and would be able to spin round.

I have to say that it was the most fun I have had for ages and I would love to have seen the chap all dressed up, it just goes to show you the weird and wonderful things crafters get up to!!
