In my last post, I mentioned the Naughty and Nice swap I participated in recently. You saw the nice and now for some naughty!!
My partner likes cowboys (who doesn't, really??) so I came up with a silly idea to make her a dirty talkin' cowboy of her very own.
I cut one of the scantily clad men from the Alexander Henry, Pin Up Wranglers fabric line, stitched him to a piece of fabric and framed him in an embroidery hoop. I added a running stitch border around the outside of the hoop for an extra detail.
To make him talk dirty, I stamped a number of different cowboy sayings onto white fabric. I stitched that to black craft felt in the shape of a speech bubble.
I stitched a small piece of velcro (the loopy side) onto the hoop fabric. The felt on the back of the speech bubbles sticks really well to this but can also be removed with a gentle tug and easily swapped out with the naughty saying of your choice.
I giggled the whole time I was making this :)!
I wrapped it, and the rest of the swap goodies, in a simple cowgirl tote that I made with denim and cowgirl pin-up fabric.
The tote pattern is from the book, Sew What! Bags. It's one of my favorite patterns because it's a great size, easy to put together and it's reversible!
Giddy up and have a good week!!
