This past weekend I was "hired" by my mom to make some cutesy burp cloths. I had done this for her you will remember just a little while ago. But this time they were for a baby boy. So the pinks wouldn't work.
After that was over I spent a while pinning. I was happily pinning up the second burp cloth when I realized something horrible. I did not have enough ribbon. By like 6 inches!
Obviously I freaked out. It was far too late to be able to head out to JoAnn's and get more ribbons (yes I didn't have enough of either one!) and I wanted to have them pinned and ready for sewing the next day.
Jon tried his best to help me find a solution as I was frantically searching through all of my sewing stuff. I knew that I had ribbons somewhere in there that were blue and green.
The next day my parents were in town to help Staci move. I had decided to help them and I would sew the burp cloths there.
I finally was able to sew them at like 9pm - when I met them at 5:15pm!
So lesson learned: Being able to use leftover stuff validates keeping it all.
