Father’s Day is almost over. Whew. I’m so glad because it means that I won’t be the only one changing dirty diapers tomorrow. Or will I?
Friday I made my usual Father’s Day shirts for the girls to wear to the Astros game. Damion really liked them and I think they turned out super cute. If only the Astros would have gotten the message that there was a game and showed up to the game it would have been a great night!
I used a freezer paper stencil for Darth Vader and then used my embroidery machine for the script. Princess Girly Girl requested a pink bow for Darth Vader, not in her hair.. but on Darth Vader himself. Hmm… I decided against that one and she was a little mad.
For Damion’s actual gift I made something that I promised to make him last year. Procrastination is my second language.
It’s a Star Wars tool belt to wear when he builds me stuff.
I again used a freezer paper stencil for Darth Vader and the script.
Darth Vader is on a reverse applique.
Damion claims that he may not even use it though because I put the girls hand prints and names on the back and he doesn’t want to mess them up.
I can’t believe how well all the Father’s Day projects turned out. The tool belts and shirts came out better than I had hoped for and I had no major bloopers. Can you believe it? I can’t.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there…. especially to my hunk of burning love. You are the best dad and I love you.

It’s always funny when you’re packing everything up at the end of the Christmas season and somehow you need to figure out how to stuff 35 paper Christmas gift bags into one tiny wrapping paper storage box. There’s also a little bit of sadness when a really cute gift bag that you found gets torn […]
