Non Quilting Requests
There are many creative sewing tasks that a quilter is often expected to perform. I detest mending and hemming pants as I may have mentioned several times over the years! But there are also unusual requests that come up from time to time.
Here are a few I have reluctantly completed recently...
*sewing more student badges for my brave sister who is going back to school for her nursing degree
*repairing half eaten toys for irresistible grand dog Max
*sewing chair cushions for the dining room chairs
*making head bands for my daughter's paintballing boyfriend. This is by far the oddest sewing request I have had.
But he had a sample that I could make a pattern from, he purchased all the supplies, and he was so excited about getting new "custom made" head bands, how could I possibly say "no"?!? The ones on the left and the right have the black nylon fabric that hangs down from the head band to keep the sun off the top of his head and his neck. It had to have a sweatband where the forehead is... what a production that was! Never again! Unless of course he loves them :)
*stitching two lines of thread across my Dad's new socks so he will know which of his thousands of black socks go together!
Okay everyone, I'm done with these "non quilting" sewing tasks!
We will now resume our regularly scheduled quilting tasks!
