The Corduroy Vest with a Secret

A corduroy vest seemed just the thing to make for Henry.  He is a young boy who is made up of equal parts rough cowboy and charming lad.  Often though the rough cowboy is the one that comes along with me to grocery shop or run to the post office.

The flannel lined vest is perfect for the unpredictable winds of Texas.  It’s also nice to cover up any remnants of egg yolk from the morning’s breakfast, as you will see in the next picture.

He likes having a secret vest, and I know I feel better knowing the Marshal is always along in case we’re fixin to run into any trouble.

The badges are under $1 at walmart and have a little metal piece that slides into a  loop I sewed on the inside of the vest.

Red taunts Henry whether or not he is the law.

Happy days to you and yours!

How cute is HE!!! Tell him, I thought he was a REAL cowboy out in the West somewhere on a Texas ranch! You didn't cut up one of your hubby's favorite shirt/pants to make this did you? Some things we never forget! heehee! ♥

He is just WAY too cute for his own good!
You are such a nice Mommy to give him his secret Marshall vest.
I agree, we all need a Grocery Marshall with us when we go shopping:)
Have a great day!
