Sausage Monster had a great idea today - he wanted to do some sewing and, more to the point, he wanted to put what he made into my etsy shop to earn himself some extra pocket money!!
Well, I'm of the opinion that such enterprise is to be encouraged.
We discussed what he wanted to make.
Why, of course.
We discussed how to go about it.
First off, designs are required.
So, he happily designed a batch of aliens.
Then we rifled through ten tonnes of fabric to choose the necessary materials.
He really got into making his first alien - TZ220 or Terence, as he's known to his friends. Sausage was very involved in the actual construction, doing some sewing, turning and stuffing, and drawing Terence's face on with fabric pen.
I was required to stitch the trickier bits and do a bit of stitchery on the alien's face.
Once finished, he went into the shop to meet a pre-order from Mrs Locket, for Fred Locket's birthday :)
Right then, one down....several more to go.
Just as we were choosing the fabric for 'Jib Jib', Moogsdad suggested a boys' trip to the park to play football.
Sausage was off in a cloud of smoke, faster than you could say 'Hey, I thought you wanted to sew with Mummy!!' - and I was left to make alien MKII!!!
That boy has great 'management potential'!!! I was given a very detailed brief and strict instructions to get the shelves stacked in Sausage Monster's new section of the shop, before he returned from the park!!
Of course, I did!!!
Tomorrow, the beasties and I are off up to Brum for a couple of days to see my Dad. We'll be back on Wednesday, in readiness for the Minx's birthday on Thursday!!
Oooh, it's all go , isn't it?!!!
By the way .... go here and do this!!!! Go on - you know you want to :)
