Mending...

Tab has a pair of jeans with the adjustable waist on them. The elastic pieces always seem to stick out of his waist band on them. Well one day he came home from preschool and I noticed that the button holes had all been cut through. I asked him what happened and he just matter of factly stated that a certain girl in his class had cut it with scissors. At first I was ticked at that girl, she's known for a little trouble and who in the world cuts someone's clothes. But then I took a breath and was mad at Tab because who in the world stands there and allows someone else to cut their clothing. Alas, I refused to bid goodbye to these pants, hello, I have another little boy who is going to need to wear them yet. So, I decided to see how well my mending stitch on my sewing machine would work on them. It isn't pretty but he has worn them twice scince I fixed them and they are holding up so far.

I cut a girl's shirt in 1st grade. I was just messing around, but then I really did cut it a little on the sleeve. I felt so bad that I cut my shirt immediately afterwords.

That is cool that you could fix them. That picture looks professional.

Good job! Make sure to have the "don't let girls cut your clothes" talk before the next boy wears them... :)
