a wee sewing project

September 15, 2008

Yesterday my daughter handed me a little blue stuffed animal with one arm off. It belongs to her American history teacher, who uses this stuffed animal instead of the usual card or key as a “get out of the classroom free” token.

The teacher knows I sew, which is why she sent the stuffed animal home with my daughter for repair.
Sewing the arm back on was the work of a moment. I couldn’t help adding a little shirt to keep the wee beastie warm.
And I couldn’t help injecting a wee bit of political commentary. I do hope the teacher takes it in the gentle spirit in which it was given.

    I’d love it if you gave me a t-shirt just like that.What was the teacher’s reaction? Maybe I don’t want to know. There are too many people in our school district who are firmly on the Dark Side. Is she one of them? If she is, don’t tell me. She’s my son’s teacher too.

    Hi Priscilla,According to my daughter, the teacher thought it was cute and funny. I really don’t know her political persuasion, but she’s very sweet and easy-going, so I figured she’d take it well no matter which way she leans politically.
