Sweetie spent some quality time sewing last week, while I was finishing my big fat quilt project. I heard from the other room, "Well, at least this way I'm getting a workout with my sewing." I had to go investigate.
So, how does one sew when one can't reach the foot pedal?
And what was this fabulous sewing project that Sweetie tackled? Capes! For the adult superhero or superhero-in-training.
Alexander Henry rainbow stripe (we love rainbows in our house!), the design was cropped, so the cape wouldn't get caught up on foreign objects, and made to attach via safety pins directly to one's running bra. So clever again...
the race, the capes were a bit worse for the wear, but held up remarkably well, even protecting the face and head from barbed wire attack on one of the obstacles. (The Laundry Fairy reports that they came back to brilliant technicolor after a simple washing.)
