The last Friday of the month at my granddaughter Kobi's school is Mustang day and they encourage everyone to dress western. Last year for her birthday we gave her red cowgirl boots (another fun trip to Boot Barn) This year she wanted a skirt to wear with them. She also had just received a pair of the cutest little Cheetah flats with a red bow from her other grandma.
She asked if she could have a skirt that would go with both and her Mom and I just kinda shrugged, meaning probably not.
We planned to meet at Strawberry Patches a couple of weeks ago to pick out fabric.
They got there a little before I did and she picked a pattern to show me what she wanted and then showed me the western themed fabrics she liked. Then...she wanted to see if they had cheetah fabric, and of course as is the case when you shop at the wonderful Strawberry Patches, there were a couple to choose from.
Kobi even gave her Mom and I a little lesson on animal prints..."no, that is giraffe, that is tiger, that is...", etc.
You know, when we got the fabrics all together, I really thought it might work. Her Mom was more skeptical,
but here she is in her "designed" skirt and her red cowboy boots.
here and decided to make those. I had tons of fabric left and made a bunch for bows of the smaller size and some larger ones for pins.
Kobi's Mom works at the school and said she could sell them as the teachers are always looking for something western to wear on Fridays.
Kobi has been a shoe girl since she could walk. If you took your shoes off, you could be sure she would be trying them on. She is very particular about what shoes she wears with what outfit.
What will I do when all these girls get too old to want me to make their clothes. Maybe by then it will be time to think about sewing for the "greats" or maybe I will just be too old to care...NOT.
God is Good!!
