Sometimes I Get Awesome Gifts... (From Scheibler)

thank you Will Scheibler! check out what he DIYed, and he even sent me one!

message from Will:

"Thought of making a fake farm team jersey of your Pittsburgh Invaders one for Thunder Bay (where I live). Used your INVADERS logo script and was thinking of either using the 3rd alien you didn't use or the mystery space ship. Maybe since it would be a farm team use the alien you have on the front of yours for the shoulders. I have a black jersey with yellow stripes (like the Bruins from the 80s) that has screen printing on the front I could cover over with a logo.

Incorporated the main geographical thing Thunder Bay is "famous" for - the Sleeping Giant (it's even on the city's flag) , and then added some waves on top. Originally thought of using all the colours in the flag but decided that would be way too much. Anyway, after goofing around for a while here's what I came up with so far"

here is the Sleeping Giant:

here is the beautiful Thunder Bay flag:

Thanks for the T. Bay Invaders posting and for the link to djhsilver's photos (some interesting stuff there).

Wore the jersey on the ice for the 1st time this past Thursday.

For the Sleeping Giant part of the logo instead of using a photo of the Giant or the city's flag, I ended up using a simplified Giant I found on ACE embroidery's site.

Forgot to put my name (Will Scheibler) in the above comment. Just now changed my 'Blogger' display name to Will S (from greyraven8).
