I AM SO HAPPY I CAN SEW!
FABRIC IS AWESOME!
I LOVE MY STASH!
and so on.
This Sunday morning just past found me pottering around at the sewing machine, when Clem approached.
"Mama, I want to make something with you."
"Okay, well you go and design something and we'll see." (Put ball in his court and be non-committal.)
And then he came back with this.
"It's a mummy kangaroo, and those are the two babies sliding down her back, and that's her patch (pouch)."
And if, as his indulgent mother, I may say aaagh! CUTE! you will understand I was rendered helpless, and it looked like I was helping make a toy.
YAY SEWING! etc.
I cut and sewed and Clem stuffed. We agreed that the pouch and babies might be a little difficult for now. And, voila. Corduroy-and-felt kangaroo.
(I'm afraid Clem's panda hoodie is a bit small on him now, but he still loves it.
Might have to make a new one.)
He might stay there if I tie these leaves really tightly around his neck....
