Whenever I finish sewing something I show it to my husband. Much like a child says to their parent “listen to this! watch me!”, he feigns interest at this point… I think it’s to encourage me to show him *only* the finished product, not the 59372 steps in between. He calls it “inspection”, and my work is usually “approved”… sort of a quality control I guess 😉
I can tell when he really likes something that I’ve been working on because his eyes get really wide and he usually says something like “WOW”… if he doesn’t care for it he makes a face, then pretends that he didn’t make the face, then asks me pointed questions to guide me to the “right way”.
When I showed him this new scoody, his eyes got really wide. Then he told me to flip it around (they’re all reversible) and said I looked like a vampire. It’s totally a vampire scoody!
He thinks that the black side out looks more vampire-ish, but I think the black side in is cozier. I do have to tell you that this black rose swirl fabric was the WORST to cut. I’ve cut and sewn shag minky and it wasn’t as bad as this stuff. It looks like black muppet exploded all over the kitchen and the static is keeping all of it attached to every surface. But it’s pretty snuggly…
