Sew Sew

When Connor graduated to Orange Belt in his Taekwondo class, he was given a new patch to put on his uniform...

Normally when I am faced with any project that involves any type of sewing, I refer it to my Mother In Law. She is amazing! She has fixed rips, let hems out of pants, made duvet covers out of name it...she has come through for me!

OK, so I can do one thing...replace a button. Don't laugh. I'm serious. And I probably could do more if I put the time and effort into learning how. Very intimidating.

Back to this patch...I decided I'd give it a try on my own.

I do own a "sewing kit." So I pulled out some stuff today during rest/nap time and gave it a try.

The finished product!

Not bad, ehh?!?!

Until you look at the underside, which of course I won't be showing everyone.

Oh wait, I am posting it on my blog :)

I felt very grown up sitting on my couch this afternoon, with needle and thread in hand!

Happy Saturday!


  1. Sew Martha of you!!!

    Good Job Lady!

  2. I haven't the slightest idea how to replace a button. You rock.

  3. You get points for even attempting it. :) Isn't there something soothing about sitting there with a needle and thread? You should try embroidery! :)

  4. Great job! And no one will see the inside...definitely doesn't need to look pretty there! :)
