This is my last year's present to Dan for his first celebration of Father's Day: a memory of him and his son (our only son at the time) in matching t-shirts.
It all started with a photo frame: it had a beautiful tie on one side and the words
ME + THE BEST DAD IN THE WORLD
I wanted a special photo for this frame - something to remind Dan of his first Father's Day.
I looked for ideas for weeks but couldn't come up with something really special. Then one day a light bulb went off: I could make father and son matching t-shirts and try to recreate the tie on the frame.
At first I wanted to find a matching fabric but when I realized my attempt was in vain I started looking for another solution. I used blue and green fabric scraps (left over from the receiving blankets) and made two faux ties.
I remember Victor being pretty cranky the day of the photoshoot, despite all my efforts I just couldn't make him smile . He would chew on his tie, play with it but no smile would come out on his little face. So we decided to give it one more try the next day : no luck there either.
In the end the photo Dan chose for the frame was one with a smiley dad and a pretty cranky son :)
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
