Everyone’s best blog bud, Pam, is turning 30 years old today! Back on my triumphant day, she told me that she was fearing turning 30. So like any caring, loving friend, I decided I would find a way to rub her face in her 30-ness as much as possible. And what better way than to make her wear a shirt featuring herself, declaring her 30-ness?
I pulled out the freezer paper and my fabric paints, and I got to work, building Pam from the bottom up.
I used this photo as my guideline. Those pigtails are so distinctively her, but the glasses really make it Pam, don’t they? And though you can’t tell, I did put sparkly fabric paint on to give it the rhinestones.
Of course, this is all in the manner of an elaborate and time-consuming gag gift—nothing like the amazing blouse she made me—but I hope it brings her a similar level of joy. And here’s to embracing our age, no matter what it is! xoxo and happiest of happys, Pam—you wear 30 well!
