So a couple of days ago, something really random and wonderful happened.
We were at a shopping mall (Northlands) and we walked by Lincraft, which is a really big fabric / arts & craft store in Melbourne, and Sam casually said, “Hey, do you wanna make something for Phillip?”
And I’m like, “What do you mean?”
And he’s all like… “We could make him some pajamas. :D”
So I said ok.. I love the idea, but I don’t know how to sew though. Apparently, however, Sam does. o_O Surprise surprise. I can’t think of ONE other male I know that sews lol. I mean I think I know BASIC sewing but I can’t sew anything proper!!! Sam’s parents used to be tailors so I guess he picked up some skills from them here and there. So with a fair bit of skepticism, we stepped into Lincraft and bought a 1 meter long really cute printed fabric with duckies on it, then headed back to his place shortly after wards.
That night, Sam spent 4 hours sewing… taking Phillip’s measurements (LOL no more fried chicken for you, little penguin!), figuring out how to sew sleeves and buttons, his mum and dad even came along to help…
And after a lot of fussing and huffing over the sewing machine…
PHILLIP CAN HAS DUCKIES PAJAMAS!!!!!!!!!! :’D
He even has a matching PJ hat (do humans really wear those to sleep?) and three cute yellow buttons! Cute overloaddd.
Isn’t this just the cutest thing ever????? I can’t believe my boyfriend did that for me!!! I mean a guy who cooks, sews, bakes, and gives awesome massages surely is marriage material. I’m a bit young for that at the moment but I’ll definitely keep this in mind in the future!!!
I’m so pleased with the results, I’m now trying to convince him to sew clothes for my other toys. I think I have like 30+ soft toys in my room.
Me: “I think you should make Phillip a dress! A pink frilly one with pearls!! ^.^ Would look so cute in it hurhur”
Sam: “But why? O.o Phillip is a boy!!”
Me: “Guys wear skirts too! Look at Irishmen!”
Looking at Phillip now puts an even bigger grin on my face than before. His cuteness level just DOUBLED, if that’s even possible. :’)
I think this is pretty high up the list of, “sweetest gestures people have ever done for me.” ♥
The most amazing part was how Sam suggested to do this for me all by himself, without me ever suggesting it to him (like I said I didn’t know he could sew) and he did it because he knew it would make me so happy!!! And it does!!!! It might seem silly to other people, but this means so much to me. It’s the little things like these that matter the most. Knowing how to make your partner happy another person would have no clue of.
I feel so blessed.
So does Phillip, because he has fluffy duckies PJs to wear to sleep now! He’ll be kept warm and snuggly all night! His PJs are tailored to fit him even better than mine are, lol, mine are just $7 ones from K-Mart.
Update: Random video that came about when I received a Formspring question going, “What personality does Phillip have?”
You’ll have to turn the volume up to get past my maniacal laughter. Words cannot describe how much I ♥ Phillip!!! Singing and dancing is but one of Phillip’s many talents.
