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!
