Sewing tips for the non-sewing mom, saw dust, & waiting.
Ok, so, I was not fortunate enough to come into motherhood with sewing knowledge which is a nugget of gold worth more than years & years of schooling in this particular field of work. I could not sew a button on if my life depended on it. I stole that line from a non-sewing friend. Though, Justin assures me that if my life depended on it than I'd figure it out. Lauren has a pilgrim outfit she will be wearing this Friday to the Fall gathering our church hosts every year. It drags the ground even though it's the correct size. It's about 7 inches too long. I did not have time to bug a sewing friend and actually wanted to have this around for her to wear a few years longer. So, I used what I had in the art supply cabinet. Velcro strips. It worked great & I can rip them off from underneath as she grows. For those of you who cannot sew either (I will not mention names, ha) we can survive with a little surviving knowledge. Have I considered learning how to sew? Of course! Do I have the time now that I am in motherhood raising three little ones? Not really. Little or no time for learning anything new. I encourage young women to learn whatever skills they can get their hands on before getting married & having children. You won't regret it. I will be learning this skill way later when my girls are older so that they can have this skill---if I am not too busy with even younger ones. =)
