  • my DH has zero abilities when it comes to sewing. or so i assume, he's never tried haha.

    and when it said "camo" i was thinking military uniform camo...not hunting camo. but it turned out really pretty either way! i couldnt make something that gorgeous!

  • and when it said "camo" i was thinking military uniform camo

    That's what I thought it would be, that or the obnoxious camo in hot pink like they sell at walmart.

  • Awww, hell no! I wouldn't let my DH near either of my machines. He's not good with equipment like that. He would get frustrated and rip that thing apart. But he can cook and he can clean.

  • My husband is at least as good at sewing as I am, but I see very little. His mom is an excellent seamstress, makes my dd clothes and princess dresses that look way better than the ones in the disney store, so he grew up with it.

  • My boyfriend can fix pretty much everything around the house, do laundry, and at least cook well enough that nobody will go hungry if I'm busy or not up to the task. But neither of us have much sewing ability beyond mending wounded stuffed animals.

  • Awww... that's actually cute! My dh couldn't do that, but I could probably put together a decent looking dress, and dd could have definitely made her own (she decided against it though).

  • I think he did a pretty good job on it. I can't sew so I am impressed.
