Yeah that's right. True story!
Today my son told me of a tragedy about his mate who was playing with another mate and he got his jacket pocket caught on something and ripped the top of his pocket right off and some of the side. "Mum you gotta sew it up for him, his mum cant sew and she just bought it for him mum and she is gonna go CRAAAAZY Help him mum, he is really scared"
Now Im thinking, wow if she is that crazy I dont want to mess with his brand new jacket, what if she goes crazy on me? But then I thought on this...
So with that thought in mind I went out the back and sewed it up with invisible nylon thread so she doesn't notice a color difference, just in case there is a possibility she is crazy.
While I was out there I got productive to make up for yesterdays lull and made 4 more cotton dish clothes and tea towels. Total cost for them all $4.00 Now to sanitize them before use. Yep, I am feeling pretty pleased.
Then I got an idea.
I have this stupid little machine that I paid 50 bucks for. I think you can buy them for 10 bucks now. It is complete rubbish to teach a kid to sew on and I am not throwing it out because, well, it cost me 50 bucks. Now I am dismantling all of the unwanted external moving parts and modifying the bobbin winder so that its not so chinsey(spelling). I have modified the cotton reel holder, not seen in picture and it now has a vintage bamboo chopstick attached to it to hold larger reels.
Before I go a really important to me question.
Where can I buy large over locker reels/cones of pure cotton?
