The little boy who lives with me and I went to the RSF Fire Department Pancake Breakfast this weekend.  It was pretty fun.  We had a tour of the fire house, Jack got to sit in a fire truck and, of course, we ate pancakes.


Jack has a new t-shirt too.  Unfortunately, soon after we got him his sz 6 t-shirt, they ran out of that size and now two of his new friends couldn’t have their own FD t-shirts.  So what is a sewist to do in that situation?  Why offer her services of course (with the strictest orders to not let word of her services get out).  Since I had recently fixed one of Jack’s t-shirts, I knew I could help out Jack’s friends too.  Same as last time, I traced a right-sized t-shirt on the too-large t-shirt and serged away.  I hemmed both shirts on my coverstitch machine.  And presto! I have two t-shirts ready to be worn by a 4 yr old and one for a 6 yr old.  See my old post linked above for more info on how I altered these and Jack’s t-shirt.


I also helped my mom with some baby gifts today too.  I serged the edges of some burp cloths for her, but unfortunately didn’t get a picture of them.

I think that’s all that’s going to come from my sewing room until the move is complete, but I have to admit it felt good to be using my machines today.

Happy sewing everyone!
