and actually, i didnt.
i sat at home with a sick 6 year old who only wants to play star wars.
but in between attacking the death star and fighting the battle droids on naboo, i did wash clothes.
i should stop now and tell you that i am a bad mom. i don't make my 6 year old make his own bed. i should. my 9 year old was at his age. but he is really really short.
and my baby.
so i washed and dried his sheets and went to put them back on, i thought 'why do i bother tucking the flat sheet under the mattress because it never stays.'
then, as if struck by something in the force, it came to me! sew the flat and fitted sheets together at the bottom!
such an easy solution to my daily problem. which really wouldn't be a problem for me if i let my baby do his down bed.
but i digress...
so i pulled the sewing machine out from behind the couch and started pinning.
seriously people, this doesn't need instructions or photos, but it makes me feel special.
first i found the middle of both the flat and fitted sheets (short ends of course) and pinned them together. i only pinned the sheets together until the elastic edges started because i didn't want to deal with it.
then i sewed them with just a regular straight stitch on the '15' mark on my sewing machine. is that 5/8"? i dont know.
i had no problem putting it on nate's bed and we will see tonight how it works. i expect it will be awesome and i will do parker's tonight.
and i didn't even craft...
**update: we woke up this morning with our sheets NOT on the floor! i am brilliant!**
