The length was the problem. She has radiators under every window............So I tell her the next time I will bring the machine and hem The look on her face was priceless.
This is the college educated child who will correct her mother at every turn of spelling and annunciation. Her comment was "Why don't you just take them home and do it?" First off I didn't plan on having to fix the hem... second I did see a need to bring the tape measure down and she doesn't have a tape measure... Oh wait her father when asked if we needed to bring the drill with , and I said " well you hung up her pictures , do we need too?" .... Shall we see the comedy in this..
She still didn't get the bringing the machine down. It was you don't have to go out of your way that's going to be inconvenient.... Her father looked at her and it took all I could not to laugh. " Why do you think they call it a portable sewing machine!" I have been sewing her entire life.... What can I say.....
I have 2 sets to make, Well the second set she wanted to be heavier. Mom realizing it would be less expensive looked at resale shops... you can get great finds there.... If your daughter doesn't limit you color selection to ah... red and red only. (We will not get in to what her aunt calls her decorating style.. it involves pepto bismol )
Having worked this method before, when you need or what a particular item you can't find it, Have back up plan..... Well I finally convinced her to give me a second option we found some red drapes that I should be able to make them work! So a Hemming we will go!
