Do SomeTHING: Day 12
We had a white down comforter that was okay, it just didn't look finished, and it was WHITE. Sam is an 8 yr old boy with a white comforter? I think not.
We went to (I forced him to) Joann's to pick out a fabric for a duvet cover. You know what he picked?
Plain yellow. I coaxed him into a blotchy yellow flannel just for a little something something. I only bought the amount that was left on the bolt, so was a little short for the bottom. And since I am a fabric hoarder, I had this to piece together and cover the bottom.
I will say that it felt good to be back at the machine, doing something other than taking in the waist of a gaggle of pants for this 8 year old boy.
Do SomeTHING is a month long of creativity, project finishing, exploration, and imagination. What was your THING for today? Leave your link in the comments for us all to see.
