While I was there I was able to give my friend her birthday gift. I will make my friends anything but my 1 condition is that they have to wear it. Otherwise that's all they'll get from me and I will just buy them a book. This friend, Amanda, is one of my biggest fans. She still wears the stuff I made her in college. Not that college was that long ago, but my skills have greatly improved. She's bought 2 items from my shop this year for other people, so she's getting my name out and she put up a post about my shop on her facebook wall which meant a great deal to me. The past 2 years I have made her something for/around her birthday. Last year, a striped and spiked hat in out school colors and this year, my first cowl in her favorite color. I managed it get some great pictures of it too. While I was shopping for dresses for my friends wedding I kept noticing this color block trend:
So I incorporated it into my cowl. Here are the pictures of the cowl and my friend Amanda:
I loved the way it turned out. My next project is to make one in grey and purple for her sister! Happy October!
