I love the special sewing projects. Someone comes to me with an idea and allows me to take a little creative licensing with the end product.
A friend asked me to alter a robe that belonged to her grandmother. The robe was very long and she wanted something shorter to have with her at the hospital for the birth of her first child. She then asked if I could make some stuffed elephants with the leftover fabric to give to her sisters as gift.
I love these kinds of projects. I love hearing the stories about the items and I love hearing the reactions of the recipients.
Sewing makes my heart happy.
