Jam-packed with feeling
I dusted off my sewing machine to construct a pair of jammies for my husband and was struck by the lessons sewing can teach us.
For me and most of my pals, time is a true commodity, and one that companies like Amazon recognize fully.
Rather than spending your precious time searching at the mall for the right Instant-Pot, Amazon can deliver one straight to your door.
Same for pajamas.
Why toil over cutting, stitching and ironing a pair of PJs when you can find your size with a few strokes on your electronic wizard?
One reason I decided to make my own jammies is because I could choose a flannel fabric with just the right colors, and make small adjustments you won’t find in a factory-made pair.
Adjustments like just-the-right-size elastic for his girth and the custom-made hem.
I see the hours spent in labor as a gift of love.
Every stitch in is infused with meaning, even if we can’t see it.
But I know it is there.
