OLD shirts, shirts that don't fit, shirts you don't want, shirts from your daddy's closet. Oh, we have some of those! And off they went to pillage and cut and sew...and then they sewed and sewed some more.
Really, girls, you must take a break. Have some lunch, watch some TV...how 'bout we make paper? Or learn to scrapbook?
Then they put on headphones and completely tuned me out. At this point I grabbed a book and a bottle of wine and told them to call me if they need a band aid (or, ahem, ya know, if you have any questions about sewing).
