I can't sew
But I certainly try sometimes. Perhaps you will remember these Hello Kitty shirts from Santa...

Santa's elves must have been hitting the eggnog pretty hard when they made the shirt on the right because they made the hole for the head too small. My child can't get the shirt over her big noggin. I was determined not to waste a perfectly good shirt so I had the bright idea to rip out the seam on one shoulder and add some snaps. I don't have a sewing machine and I'm not particularly talented at sewing by hand. However, I kept plugging away at it until I got something that I wouldn't be too embarrassed for Emma to wear. It only took me two hours.

Be kind, don't laugh.
