Meet the child who will be getting the custom-made, gratis, “Wollen Jas Blauw” (except it won’t be wollen nor blauw, I’ll bet…)
Dharma’s mother wrote me:
“… Dharma Skye. She is 2. It is unlike me to ask to be considered for this gift but our sweet Dharma is missing her right hand and always wants her sleeves rolled up to be able to have her right arm free to use it. I was thinking a jacket that fit her right arm would be awesome. Not sure you would want to make a jacket with two different arm lengths* but that is what would work for Dharma …”
I had eleven applicants for the jacket, most of whom sent me email. I truly hope I didn’t miss anyone, in responding via email.
If you are reading here I want to thank all who responded, and who wrote a bit about their child. Many sent pictures and I almost died at how sweet all these children were. There was this one baby in the bath? I WANTED TO SMASH MY EYES OUT, FROM THE CUTENESS. I wish I could just get paid and sew coats, the perfect coats, or whatever, for every child who needed or wanted one.
Thank you so much, dear readers and supporters.
* Wow. I so want to sew a jacket with two different arm lengths. I am incredibly excited.
What an opportunity! And for such a cutie 🙂
I know! And 2… a lovely tiny size. My kids are massive and sewing for them is more & more like sewing for a grownup!
Awww! What a sweetie. Congrats to Dharma and her mama!
I know she will love. Say Hi to her Mama & Dad for me.
What a lovely little girl! Can’t wait to see you magic her up a new jacket!
What a pleasure it would be to sew this coat for such a beautiful child.
Love! I can’t wait to see what you come up with together.
Oh my goodness, so sweet. You have chosen wisely.
This is exactly why I didn’t email you about it (though T is in need of a new coat) – because I knew there was someone out there who would be so much a better choice. I’m already thinking about how happy this little girl will be to have a jacket that fits her specific needs and it’s making me smile. Too awesome for words.
This is a wonderful thing. My only complaint is that you said “gratis” instead of the proper, “free gratis”.
Thank you, Professor ASS, except as if the Free Gratis joke isn’t already on my homepage 24/7, I tweeted the FREE GRATIS offer many times. Oh, but then you don’t follow me on Twitter, because that’s the way you choose to live your life.
Everyone else, thank you! I met with Dharma yesterday and got some relevant measurements. She is a thousand percent adorable.
Um. Dude. This seriously just MADE MY DAY. Big time.
this is fantastic. I’m sure she’ll be thrilled to have something created just for her.
