Most Pretty in Pink fans are a bit bewildered that Andie chooses Blaine over Duckie--I mean really?? I certainly would have chosen Duckie---he had better hair and clothes and could dance WAY better.
So would Becky--my lovely stitchy friend and swap partner for a movie themed swap! When she listed Pretty in Pink as one of her favorites I just knew I had to do something for it. You may remember my love of John Hughes. I pondered for a bit of what to do...and it hit me...his rockin' shoes!! So that's what I did--Duckie's shoes with one of my favorite lines (a bit condensed). I call it "Team Duckie".
I stitched it up on light pink fabric and stitched the words in a brighter pink........cause well it's pretty in pink right?
I realize the lettering is a bit crooked, but I sorta figured it made it look a bit more like actual handwriting...at least that's what I'm going with. I stretched it over an 8X10 canvas I had and glued some polka dot paper underneath for a bit of 80's appeal. I am so happy with this piece actually and really had a hard time letting it go--but I know it's new owner will take good care of it. Please go check out Becky's blog!! She's an awesome stitcher, thrifter and cat lover. Go buy something from her, too! I can't WAIT to see what I get from her!! EEK!
Here's the scene from the movie with this line in it and a good shot of the real shoes (kinda crap video but it's the
first only one I found) Catch ya later guys and gals!
