About four years after my wife graduated from medical school, and working in an emergency room, she decided to join the military as a doctor. We lived pretty calm lives, but now, when she overseas for a few months at a time, I take care of the house and the kid's, it was defiantly tough at first, and I'm still learning some basics.
My daughter, Jade, has a blanket that her grandmother made her when she was born. Recently, she's been complaining that some buttons fell off, small rips and some of the edges were starting to come undone, so when she finally asked me to fix it, I realized I needed to learn another skill. With my wife, away, I was going to have to teach myself. I hit Google with a few different searches, and I ended up finding your page, https://www.ssndesigns.com/links-and-resources.html and it was a great start for me, thank you!
After about two days of practice and patience, I was able to surprise Jade with her blanket, I love surprising her, she was beyond ecstatic. I even crocheted her a new border to keep it all together. I did want to share one of the pages that helped me out a ton. Knowing it helped me out, I think it could do the same for other dads trying to learn. https://www.wristbandexpress.com/content/crafting-with-your-hands-needlework-arts Could you throw it up? It has a lot of great resources and tips for beginners like me.

MY Upholstery PROJECT
Having never upholstered anything before, I thought I would give it a go with my dining room chairs. Since I want to start blogging about the sewing projects I do using my products - I decided to start with my dining room chairs using the Puts-it.
Hope you find this video informative. Looking forward to reading your comments.
