Riley LOVES baseball as much as Luke does. This picture was taken July 4th at the Chuckar's baseball game we went to right before the fireworks. I love hanging out with these two! I can't wait for them to get married so we can have married buddies!
Anyway, Monday night I came home to find an invite to Brenda's bridal shower. No big deal, I normally go buy some fabric and *whip* out an apron that reflects the couples interests... Then I saw the date it was for Tuesday night!!!!! I didn't have much time to think of a present (Much less sew one...) so around 11:00 pm Luke and I found ourselves in Walmart trying to find the *perfect* gift.
After like an hour (No joke, it seemed like an hour, Luke HATES wondering around stores.) of wondering around Walmart I jokingly said, "What if I just bought a white bra and made it look like baseballs?" Luke was on the ground laughing. He loved the idea! haha And so our plan was set.
Here's how to make a Baseball Bra:
- Buy the right size bra, the smaller the better (then it looks like real baseballs).
- Make sure you have a red sharpie or another permanent or fabric maker
- Use a cup to make the curves of the stitches (Luke held the cup; haha both cups technically, while I traced the shape)
- Draw the stitches on the bra (PLEASE make sure you draw the stitches correctly; Luke will shoot me if you don't. He will notice, trust me.) One side of the stitches goes up and the other side goes down.
- Stand back and admire!
So what do you think??? Doesn't look like baseballs????
I'll have to admit if you don't look to close it looks like I bought it that way!! Everybody kept asking where I bought it! haha
Here's the gift basket before the final stages. I forgot to take a picture of the final gift, sorry! I made a baseball watching basket, Trust me I know how much she's going to be watching baseball now that she's married to a baseball boy.
The card read:
Since you guys said you had everything for your home. I thought I'd help you out with
Sunscreen: So you don't burn like I did last year (This is a BIG running joke with Riley's brother)
Lotion: So you can soothe Riley's sore muscle
Candy: A little treat for during the game
Everything else: A little treat for AFTER the game.
So in the basket I had sunscreen, lotion, candy (which included bubble gum, a must for us Mormons), the Baseball bra, panties, red and white socks and eye black. Luke said the eye black was a MUST.
The gift was a hit! I had everyone at the party laughing and saying how perfect it was for Riley! Like I said before they kept asking where I bought it!
So if you are ever looking for that perfect baseball bridal gift, come back and visit me!
