Belated Valentine's day post
Although it started from a practical reason, we ended up really enjoying doing this. The spending limit forces us both to be creative:)
For this Valentine's day, I bought Andy push-up bars (not pictured) and made him a handmade T-shirt. I used his favorite Rocky T-shirt as a base. I didn't even make patterns for the T-shirt, but just placed the T-shirt on the fabric and cut. Men's T-shirt is so much easier to make than some woman's clothes! Having no darts or zippers is wonderful. I finished his T-shirt in about half an hour. I added a patch pocket on the left with black and white stripe fabric, and added "Vivat Veritas" fabric tag in the back.
What do you think? Should I start men's line? :p
Andy knew how much I love Knap jewelry, and surprised me with her handmade earrings and matching necklace. The color is beautiful, it's a mix of purple and blue, and depending on the light, the color changes.. I've already worn them 3 days in a row! He also made me a handmade peanut butter cups. If you follow me on twitter, you might know how much I am obsessed with Reese's peanut butter cups.. The reason for my obsession is not only because they are delicious but also we cannot buy Reese's peanut butter cups in Japan. I searched everywhere for this. Different import food stores etc. I guess Japanese people are not so into the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, because I don't really find those combination in any chocolate stores. So I was thrilled when he made me handmade ones...He made them so big they were almost like a cake! lol.
