So what do you do when your Grandma has a favourite dressing gown that is falling apart? She has two other ones that she could wear, but they are just not the same level of comfy. This one is her favourite, it is just right.
My Mum and step-dad (Steve) have been staying with us for the last 12 days. Mum brought my Grandma's dressing gown with her hoping we could repair it. It was just the two top panels that were falling apart, the rest of the dressing gown is fine. I had a brain wave, and thought we could replace the worn, damaged panels with some panels decorated with fabric pens by Abbey and Zoe.
And it worked! (phew) It required a lot of brain power to figure out the best way to replace the panels without taking the whole garment apart, but I managed it. Luckily my Mum and Steve took the girls out to the playground (for a LONG play) so I could sew (and think) in peace.
Abbey chose to write some beautiful words, "I love Grandma"about her Great Grandma. I was so proud of her. We do miss her now we live so far away.
We all believe Grandma will love her new, and improved. dressing gown. It certainly is one of a kind.
All the Creative Spaces are over here today.
Happy Thursday to you.
