My boys are too old to sew with me for the most part. But I still sew for them. My older son asked for a head band and these are what I made. I had that bit of leather with beads sewn on in my sewing room for a long time. I always meant to use it for a barrette. I have tons of little objects like that, half made odds and ends. I will work on a little piece of fabric or paper with no intention and then a few months (or years later) its place becomes obvious. The problem is storing them and knowing which ones to toss, and which ones have a future.
