I know I’ve said this before, but the talent around here is amazing. Some guys are skilled writers or artists, while others are adept at creating unique and interesting craft items. In my post “Prison Hustles Make The World Go Round” I showed you a video of an amazing hand crafted wooden Harley Motorcycle. I also showed you an example of a unique craft item, a small wishing well.
Today I want to show you more great inmate made crafts. One of the guys here knitted these mittens, scarf, and hats for his niece:
In the past he has made full size blankets and numerous custom knitted sports themed embroidery. It’s a hustle for him, because he sells his crafts to visitors by displaying them in the lobby through the craft program here, and it’s how he passes his time.
Check out this amazing painted wooden butterfly:
Look at those eyes! The paint even glows in the dark when you cut the lights off. So cool. Every craft item this fellow makes is one-of-a-kind and he never duplicates or sells them. Believe me, I’ve tried to convince him otherwise because I’d love to own some of his work.
Before I close, I want to show you pics of this collage that a buddy of mine is drawing. It’s for a Navy S.E.A.L. friend of his, and it is to commemorate the death of another S.E.A.L. who was killed in action.
He’s not done just yet, and I’ll show you all more in Video Fridays as he continues to complete the drawing.
*I give all of you a heartfelt thank you for returning again and again to read my posts. This week Letters from Christopher reached a new milestone, drawing readers from 34 countries. Please continue to share these posts with family and friends. Thank you!
