Most all practical thing that I know how to do, I learned from my mother. My first experience with scissors and sewing was when I was about 2-3 years old.
My mom had her daily nap on the kitchen bench and I was "playing" with the buttons in her apron/dress. I quess the story is that I cut them out and sewed them back in, as my mom was sleeping and noticed nothing.... I worked very quitetly, as kids do when they are doing something they shouldn't do.
Pretty?? Depence on the eye of the beholder.....
As a custom designer, I love the story, and I even think I can remember it!
