Several years ago, I found an old Strawberry Shortcake sheet in an Op Shop. It was torn in several places. For a time, I used it for events to cover my stock when I went to multi day events. Then I stopped doing big events like comic con etc.
It was only after I finished doing those big events that I actually took the time to mend this sheet, a sheet that brought back childhood memories, so my youngest could claim it as her own. She knows it isn't the one I had as a kid (at least I don't think it is, it would be funny if by chance it was, though). She just loves the idea of having something like what I did, when I was her age that I used to love that's now a part of both of us, because I mended it with some of her favourite fabric from my stash.
I'm pretty happy to have it on board with us. Every time I see it, I smile. She loves that I brought it with us on the boat, too. Something familiar to wrap herself in. 🍓 🐞
