Accepting my Genes

August 5, 2010

I’ve mentioned several times here that being crafty and sewing/quilting run deep in my family, on both sides.

After an afternoon of perusing Etsy, I wanted to test the waters and see if I could make something myself.

And I did it!

I thought I could just run in a fabric shop and grab the colors. Uh, no. About an hour or more later, I was ready to go home.

I shamelessly copied this stitch by stitch. But I didn’t want to pay $25 for the shirt for Jack.

So, here it is! My first hand applique!

I need to find a plain white t-shirt for Jack to put it on. And I may need to redo the eyes; Reid said he looks sad, haha! Maybe they are a bit lopsided. Whoops!

Also, since it’s my blog and I can do what I want AND it’s our anniversary, here’s one of my favorite pictures of Reid. It was actually one of the first pictures I ever saw of him. How could I refuse a date with him after seeing this hot picture!? Hello!

Btw, he took that picture himself. The fact that we both do this is a sign that we’re meant to be together, right?

    How about you make 2 appliques! Pretty sure that Carter would love a shirt too. Then, we can get my mom to make them some matching houndstooth shorts. Cute stuff!!!

    Happy Anniversay – Love ya’ll.
