My mum sewed a bit when we were kids. Made a lot of my sisters and my clothes. My sister didn't like it much since there was 8 years between us lol. She made bears for a while then covid hit, now she does card makingI've always been into sewing--my mom sewed a lot when I was growing up. She made my party dresses when I was very little & our native clothes because we rarely traveled to Pakistan, & anything available here was too expensive. For some reason, though, sewing clothing doesn't interest me much. Quilting appeals to me because it involves a lot of geometry & math and is more challenging. That is probably why I enjoy counted cross stitch as well, compared to pre-stamped embroidery patterns.
One of my brothers did that in the 80s. From memory my parents got him a good pair of jeans for his birthday and he ripped them.I recall when those ridiculous ripped/patched jeans were first in style. My sister wanted a pair that at time were $40+. My father told her to give me an old pair of her jeans, & I could make them truly unique--FOR FREE. I never cared to be one of those kids--wearing the "latest" or most "in" thing, my sister did. I've always look for things that would last in style & quality.
That's very nice of you.I'm working on another large quilt top. I'll send that to a cousin in Pakistan who had really liked some of the quilts I'd made (in pictures) & asked for one. There, she can have it finished how she wants. A thin lining can be added, or just a backing.
