on the mend

i finally got behind the sewing machine today. i think it's been about 2 months since i had touched it. nothing too spectacular was done, just mended a few of aaron's clothes. thought i'd ease myself back into using it again.

awes: do you think you could sew all the crotch holes in my boxers shut?
sue: why?
awes: because they're unnecessary. i never use them.
sue: then why do they put them in there?
awes: i don't know. maybe if i pulled my pants down to my ankles when i peed, i can keep the boxers on to keep my butt warm. but i don't do that, so i don't need them.
sue: okay.

so now all his crotch holes are sealed shut. i also transformed one of his scrub shirts from what was obviously meant for a female into a male version. it had side slits, two huge pockets along the bottom and no pocket on the chest. now the slits are gone, pockets removed and a new chest pocket placed. it turned out great, you can't even tell it's been edited. hopefully now i'll get back into the crafting game. it's time to come out of winter hibernation.

glad to hear you'll be getting back to crafting...I've missed your crafty posts! the crotch hole thing is kinda funny too by the way. i wonder if any man uses them?

that's great, I had borrowed a sewing machine to try to teach myself, but after too many failed attempts I hung it up. i do however hand sew jaime's socks and shirts when they get holes, so does that make me more or less skilled?

When you first said "crotch holes" I thought of the holes my DH always gets in the seam of his boxers, not the opening that comes with the boxers. Oops. Your scrub shirt transition sounds impressive.

Can you come and sew up all my crotch holes too?

jason thought this was a hilarious post! I should have asked him if he uses them. i think a survey is called for...

yep, verdict is in. jason doesn't use them either.
