Don't taunt a crafter!

Now I'm not what you'd call a Barbie type of girl. So when I bought this from the Op Shop...


..... my dear friend Mark took great delight in taunting me about my purchase. Rather than ask why I bought it (for the foam that was under the fabric for a new project I'm working on.... more later), he just laughed and taunted me about how much I love Barbie, etc, etc. Yes, I know... very hurtful!!!

Anyway, that was way back in March. Mark has moved on from his taunts... I have not. Finally, I have been able to pay him back for his taunts.

Today is Mark's birthday so I made him a very special present.... Barbie boxer shorts.


And to go with his Barbie boxer shorts, a pencil case with his name in the Barbie fabric...



...and a matching Barbie birthday card.



Happy Birthday Mark. I hope you have a Barbie-tastic birthday!!!
Lots of love, Nikki xxxx

Mark Fitzgerald said...

Hahaha The card is the centerpiece on my mantle. I think the humour is well worth the humiliation :)
Forgive me if I don't wear the boxers too proudly, but I appreciate the effort, and the laugh!!
Thanks for the perfect birthday gift :)

Wicked girl! Very clever and wicked.

I hope he learns his lesson! A crafter never forgets. I haven't forgotten that my hubby thought the first ever doll I made was Aslan (a lion!) - I just never got around to the same level of retribution! I do still bring it up from time to time however!

Hee hee you crack me up! We want to see a photo of him modelling those boxers!

Barbie karma?

Happy Birthday Mark!

Tania said...

Aah, the elephantine memory of a craftster! I was going to agree with Curly Pops on the photographic recording suggestion, then considered just how wrong that could look. Love your style Mrs!

Christmas is not too far away! Id whip up a nice comfy pillow for his car seat, or perhaps a 'neck pillow' for longer travel. T'would be the envy of most lil' ladies ( and then some). Peta

Lauren said...

That's fantastic!

Michelle said...

way to cute...
I'm sure he thinks he is "real' special now...lol...

Karen said...

I agree - beware of the vengeful crafter! I made a friend some green hessian underpants (lined with faux fur of course!) in the same vein.
Excellent!

queen dani said...

That. is. awesome!

daws said...

Perfect! I don't think he will learn a lesson from this though!

Treacle Beak said...

The boxers should go very nicely with your complesxion, Mark. By the by, Happy Birthday! (You really are an evil friend, Black Cardigan)

Buttons by Lou Lou said...

LOVE it. Although I'm also looking forward to seeing what the foam was made in to.

Sandra @ Pepperberry and Co. said...

Hahaha! Love it :-) 'Tis the sweetest form of revenge!

Bethwyn said...

lol, that's awesome!

Princess kirstie jane said...

Oh that is great I love revenge inspired crafty presents. Let folks making unhelpful comments around creative people beware.

Cath said...

that is sooo excellent. I wish I knew Mark so I could fling some barbie goods his way - last laugh and longest and all that xx

eeloh said...

ha ha ha. and i saw the furlined hessian shorts to.

Can't wait to see what you do with the new covers. Too many months ago I promised some friends I would re-cover their Barbie flipout sofa ... I am trying to get to Ikea son to pick up some cheap fabric to do it. Hmmmm. which op shop was it? what a fantastic find!
