How ’bout them Cowboys!!!

I’ve added this catchy and fun statement which I consider the unofficial, yet official, phrase for the Dallas Cowboys. That is about as far as I’ll go with the sports jargon because frankly my lingo is limited in that area. 😉

Today’s post is in honor of the Dallas Cowboy fan in my life…my hubby. Yes, he LOVES the Cowboys.

I’ll try not to ramble but…well…I’m excited about this project. You’ll get:

Let’s get going…

I want to walk you through the pictures. I hope this will help clear up any questions and supplement the video clips.

The Transition Areas

These are a few pictures of the transition areas—the areas outside the star, the seam connecting the pieces and the border.

The Bag

This was fun to piece together. Here are the pictures of the bag. You’ll also see the blanket rolled ready to place in the bag.

In Closing…

While editing the video I could hear the excitement in my voice. Could you?

I worked in secret for weeks on this project. What is hilarious…everyone commented on the star about it being great for this Cowboy fan or that Cowboy fan. And just when I thought I’d made the entire project without him knowing he came home on Wednesday saying someone at church asked about his “Cowboys” crochet. Surprised

Someone saw the star on Facebook and immediately thought of him. Yet he did not see it. LOL!

You should have saw me fumbling to keep my secret until Sunday night’s game. He loved it, which made the hard work worth it.

Isn’t that one of the greatest payoffs for this wonderful craft? Your hours of work being loved by the recipient.

Off to the next project… 😉
