Here’s a sneak peek of the awesome collaboration:
After decades of top-notch music, band members call it quits
It’s the end of the world as fans know it.
One suspected that when alternative-rock pioneers R.E.M. eventually called it quits they’d do it with civility and style, but this morning’s announcement that the band was through still caught fans off-guard. It started off with one short statement on the official website:
“To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening.” R.E.M.
I personally will miss the band a lot!! Here a few of my favorite songs from the band:
Sienna Miller at London’s Moet and Chandon Etoile Award event in a beaded Christian Dior gown.
- a 6″ x 3.5″ piece of velvet
- a 0.75″ x 2.5″ piece of velvet
- a 1″ pin back
- a glue gun
- a ruler
- a pen
Start by drawing a vertical line and a horizontal line, dividing the rectangle into 4 equal quarters. Pinch the intersecting lines and pick up the velvet.
Flip the piece over, while still pinching the backside, and place a drop of hot glue in the center. Fold the velvet in half lengthwise, pressing the two sides closed. Place a drop a of glue on backside, along the vertical line and close to the folded edge. Fold the fabric back and press the two sides closed. This is the accordion-like fold that will be repeated.
Place another drop of glue on the front side and fold the fabric closed. Continue the steps until both sides.
Turn the bow on its backside and glue the tip of the velvet strip to the center. Wrap the strip around the bow and seal it closed.
Glue a pin back to the back of the bow.
Your velvet bow tie is finished!
Boy, oh boy . . .
