Last week I spent an afternoon mending and sewing. One of the items I made was a hair bow for my granddaughter to wear for Halloween.
I gave her the bow on Saturday and was glad to see she liked it. But by the next day she called and asked if I could make her a Dallas Cowboy bow for her hair so she could wear it with her jersey while watching the games with her dad.
What could I say, of course if I could find a small piece of Cowboy fabric I’d drag out the sewing machine and make another bow. By Friday we’d found a piece of fabric and I quickly put another bow together in time for Sunday’s game.
She’s worn it almost every day since! There was still a small piece of fabric leftover so the request was to make a bandana for Elsa.
I used a piece of elastic in my sewing box to give it some stretch and sent her home ready to join the family for the Cowboy game.
I wonder if the sewing machine will get a break for a while.
