Please meet my friends...

My friends JT and Macca were about to celebrate their 12 year anniversary and I wanted to get them something as special and as excellent as they are. But what? Nothing we thought of seemed right. Finally, it was decided that the only thing as great as them was..... them!


Thanks to the fabulous Kinder Boys pattern that I feel in love with and bought at the Stitches & Craft show from Jodie at Ric Rac, I made my friends a mini-JT and a mini-Macca to celebrate their special occasion.


But what is in their suitcases? Everything they need, of course!

Boardshorts, hats and towels for the beach...


A business shirt, pants and a tie for formal occasions...


Flannelette pyjamas..... with bed socks (I don't want them to get cold feet!)....



Did you notice their 'Softies' to cuddle in bed....

My clever sister Truj made these for the boys.









To carry their important things, I made the boys bags.
JT has a backpack to carry his camera, zoom lens, magazines and books...



And Macca has a satchel to carry his laptop, magazines and books...



The awesome camera and laptop are more Truj creations.

So when I last saw the boys, they were busy taking photos and sending emails!



I completely LOVED making these for my gorgeous friends. Another top secret project done.

Oh, my goodness. These are the most fantastic, wonderful, phenomenal, incredible, spectacular, gorgeous things I have ever seen. I'm not kidding. They are SENSATIONAL.

The amount of time it would have taken to complete just blows my mind! I sure hope that I am a good friend of yours when Sharon and I have been together for 12 years :-) 9 to go!!

I am most in love with their variety of outfits- wow. And their accessories. Wow. You are a truly talented young lass.

OMG to say we love them is an understatement.

I've never felt more loved.

mini-jt has been changed constantly and is here with us today at work in his business clothes.

We both thank you so much for all the work that went into these little guys. We can tell it was a huge job and OMG I can't use enough words to say thank you enough to you all including Tj.

I'm so proud to have my own little mini-jt.
