what i've been up to today

So a few months ago my sister-in-law Stephanie (aka Stooph) sent me a photo of the most adorable red cape. She asked me if I would make it for her for her Birthday...and if I did it could be my present to her for the next 30 Birthdays.


I said "now that's a deal!"



It's not done, but it is sure close! Travis was very nice to watch the kids today while I worked.

Stephanie has a really fun style so I was excited to give something like this a try.



Check out that super sassy lining she choose. Love it Stooph!


*Get ready because I am going to have some fun and easy sewing projects coming up!

OH, I am ready. And so is my machine.

Have I mentioned that you are pretty much the coolest person ever?

I didn't?

Really?

Because you are.

Stephanie said...

The truth of the matter is: when you've got it, you've got it and really... I think you've got it!
Love the cape, can't wait to see the finished product (on said Stooph) AND I am TRES excited about the 'easy' sewing projects.. although I am wondering if your "easy" and my "easy" are in the same dictionary!!

You're an inspiration.

PS I lost my cell phone...
