20 in 20 giveaway (bonus- day 24)...

carrot boutonniere
carrot boutonniere
20 handmade projects in 20 days...bonus day 24. Handmade today is a felt carrot boutonniere for your little one or for a partner with a sense of humor. Who doesn't like to wear vegetables on their lapel? You could wear it to the farmer's market to see if you get a discount! Wearing carrots not your thing? Hang it on your front door or leave it in the mailbox as a Spring surprise for your letter carrier (is that even legal?). EZ E and Kicky don't know it yet, but they most certainly will be wearing these for the easter dinners we'll be attending. Cue evil laugh. And may I just say that I love how much EZ E looks like a disheveled little professor here? Believe it or not, he was wearing that outfit- minus the carrots- before I asked to take his photo. Thanks to Round Rabbit for sponsoring this week's projects (check out her blog too). Today is *really* the last day of 20 in 20 for March, but the handmade giveaways will continue in April, starting on Monday the 4th. Happy 20 in 20!

Oh wow, I love it! And I have a tangential question: where did the seersucker jacket come from? I've been trying to find one for my little guy and somehow they don't seem to be out there this year.

This is my most favorite yet. I think we all should wear more vegetables.

Though it is doubtful I could ever obtain "dapper" status as EZ E so effortlessly does, I would certainly give it a try. Kills me that he CHOSE his own outfit...a completely awesome kid!

Aesthetic Outburst... said...

Thanks so much, everyone! He is killing me with his whole look. :) The glasses are vintage from my mom, btw. They don't have lenses (he doesn't need glasses...yet) and he wears them all the time! :)

Ali- his jacket is baby Gap- but I can't remember when I got it (maybe last year?)
xo,
Abbey

I missed your giveaway, but when I saw your carrots on your adorable son, I not only had to become a follower of your blog, but I had to make a version of your carrots for my boys. Thanks for sharing!
