We came home where Mr. C was exhausted. Sometimes working a crazy shift just wears him out. Add that to a man who was going on three hours sleep? One very tired papa. Since he works on Saturdays, he decided to go to bed for the night really early. Micah and I decided to head to my parent's house so that I could go practice some more sewing of burp clothes with my mom while Daddy slept. It was also a great excuse to get some dinner with my parents at Panera Bread! Yummy!
My mom has a large assortment of random fabric, so I spent some time picking out two I thought would compliment each other. In the end I landed on these.
I was doing really well sewing the fabric onto the burp cloths around the edges until I got to this part of the burp cloth. The truth about sewing? I'm not really good at it. The truth about teaching? I have always had trouble cutting a straight line for my bulletin boards. The truth about sewing? I am not that great at it, but at least I have a good teacher!
In the midst of this, Micah was hungry, so I stopped to nurse him for a little while. My mom stepped in to try to cover up my huge, ugly non-straight edge lines. The truth about sewing? If you make a mistake, cover it up!
By the time the night was over after several sewing machine glitches, we finally had a finished product that made me proud. I mean, who wouldn't want to let your baby spit up all over that cute burp cloth?
The truth about sewing? It's not really all that hard (well, burp cloths anyway). I actually like making burp clothes. I have a really wonderful teacher. Thanks, Mama! And I think my grandmother would be proud.
Have a great weekend!
