British Invasion Celebration-Made it Monday

Also linking with Charity Classroom Freebies Manic Monday
50 years ago today, the Beatles were on Ed Sullivan. I did not get to see the show, I was at Sunday night church. But they played a large influence on my teen years. But children would tell you, we use to clean the house on Saturday mornings to Eleanor Rigby. They would hurry so they did not have to flip the LP over and keep cleaning with me.

On the island we have our own "Beagle's"  that play all Beatles' music. We go to see them most Friday nights. As regulars we all have fun. One group of friends print t-shirts and buttons celebrate and others carry their Beatles' purse and set up their favorite Paul trading card.
This past week I made a garland to hang from Ed Sullivan CBS posters and miniature Beatles' guitars. The craft I did not get finished till today.

I took colored t-shirts and basted ribbon on it too look similar to uniforms from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Next I sewed the largest metal buttons I could find on the breast of  ribbons. I used ripped up t-shirt fabric and braided it to make uniform cords.

Hopefully my Beagles will find the t-shirts comfortable to wear when they are playing and we "come together".

What did you make this week?
