scroll down to see who won our fun robot tote!!
The pants that my boys choose first when they get dressed in the morning are the ones that I've patched. I usually have fun with the patches and use ribbon and a variety of fabric and patches. Not only is it more fun for me at the sewing machine, but the boys think these are much 'cooler' than regular plain patches ;)
Once, not too long ago, I patched one knee in a pair of Anthony's pants and the second time he wore them with the new patch he ripped a hole in the second knee!! Again, the second time he wore them after the second patch was added, he fell leaving the house for school at 7:30 that morning. He started crying and I thought that he had hurt himself pretty badly. I hugged him tight and checked him out but he seemed intact. When he finally stopped crying enough for me to make him out, I realised that he was upset because his patches were dirty!! LOL! I ran in the house and got him a clean pair of pants. The fabric at the knee was a bit weak so I jokingly said that he could try and rip these ones so that I could give him a new patch. I had pretty much forgotten all about the fall until that night when he was in the bath. His knees and most of the length of his legs were scratched and scraped.
me: 'Anthony, what happened to you?'
Anthony: 'You said to try and rip my jeans so that you could make me a new patch. I tried really hard, but they just wouldn't rip!'
THE WINNER OF THE ROBOT TOTE IS.....
