This is what happens when your employer knows you can sew. Under this ship is an ENTIRE BUS! This boat float was made in the mid 1990's.
I was responsible for:
- Creating the pattern
- Tracing the pattern
- Sewing material to metal frame
I worked in the Campus Bus Service Department. Every other year or so, we gutted the inside of a bus that was no longer usable and created a float for the Homecoming Parade.
Our first float was the magic lamp from the movie Aladdin. We paper mached a bus that was wrapped in chicken wire - what a mess that was. We also created space shuttle and diner restaurant. Phew....glad those days are behind me.
The moral of the story: Keep your mouth shut!
