Hot Air Balloons
Sometimes, instead of letting myself think, "Man, I wish I still had a sewing machine!" one more time, I get out my embroidery thread, needle, and fabric, and embroider tiny hot air balloons and stitch the patches onto the back of the ankles of my favorite pair of Levi's.
I miss being able to imagine my own clothing and bring my imagination to life through my sewing machine, but this is pretty cool too.
Maybe it's not that common to think "You know what my ankles need? They need hot air balloon patches!"
Or maybe it is.
But I kind of doubt it's a common thought, seeing the lack of hot air balloons on ankles. Because I'm sure if anyone had the thought, they'd act on it.
I kind of really, really like them. They're probably hardly noticeable in real life, all the way down near the ground. How often do you even look at the backs of people's ankles? But it just makes me happy knowing that they are there.
Now I want to embroider patches to sew onto lots of other clothing.
How do you feel about hot air balloons and/or patches on ankles?
