What do you do when …?

What do you do when you have a 23 year old young man visiting and his dad (my cousin) asks you to teach him to sew pants?

Well, he was only here for 3 days … SEW … teaching him how to sew pants wasn’t gonna happen!!! Besides, I don’t make pants … And we had to play tourist (in the WORST Vancouver weather) and he had an interview on another day …

But, knowing my cousin, I HAD to do something.

SEW, I set Kristopher up at my embroidery machine … and he did ALL the sewing!  Doesn’t he look like a pro????


Yes, he sewed pants … grey pants … and said his dad often wears red shirts … we I chose to made his hair salt & pepper (LOL) … and this is the mug rug that Kristopher made:


Didn’t he do a fabulous job???  And yes, he controlled all the stitching, I didn’t do any of it!

The golfer is a free pattern from AnnTheGran.  The outside edge is from a mug rug from Kreative Kiwi.

David, I hope you enjoy the mug rug … made by your son!!!

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  4. Hey, I could make those pants! The Dad must have thought you were amazing if he thought you could teach the son to make pants in three days. I couldn’t make them in three days, much less teach someone else how to do it.

    • Yes, Gene, you could make them!
      My cousin is a big tease, I’m sure he meant it in total jest! However, as you can tell, I took him seriously! LOL!!!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂 And, I hope you get to make some pants soon! 🙂
