Reason #436 why I wish I could sew ...

I guess owning a sewing machine would be a good start, right?!

Anyways...tailgating, errr-I mean, football season is t-minus 32 days away and little ol' me is just gettin' a little prepped!

Let's be honest, although it's supposed to be all about the boys in tight pants, football season, for us girls, is allll about looking the cutest at the tailgate. Right?! Right.

So besides the fact that I would be able to make curtains and bedding (do people sew bedding?) and all sorts of other cuteness for my future nuggets...I could also make a killing off of these puppies...

This one is extremely special to me.
It's made out of a tshirt I bought my dad for Father's Day a few years ago.
You can see the "DAD" but it's very faint. People who know me, get it. 0:)
Classic "Cougar Red"

Of course-I had to be the supportive big sis...(& because I look terrible in maroon)
This one is actually made out of one of my brother's t-shirts :) He's a senior at Texas.
Can you imagine how adorbs they will look belted with boots?!
Or even a cute pair of wedges?!

God bless Beau's aunt for literally just going off what I had in my head to make them.

Sadly, this was her first and only time to make these unless I can somehow coax her out of the wedding cake biz. ;)

BUT you're in luck! I found a lady on Etsy who can make them for y'all! and you can find her here. She's based out of Fort Worth and if you sweet talk her, she just might be open to doing custom orders! :)

Here's another lady in St. Louis.

Or-if you're like every other average American woman who actually owns a sewing machine, you can sew them yourself and make a pretty penny! All you need is an XL tshirt, any kind of cotton fabric and lace! (Samantha...I'm talking to YOU sister!)

As if I wasn't already excited enough about college football...

Oh, & just because we could probably ALL use a lil' laugh this a.m....
(Beau is gray-I'm green)

Let's just say, I didn't end up going to the store...
