It's not often that I get to teach my Hubby something new, especially in regards to his work.
Yesterday happened to be one of those moments.
A female customer, requested that Hubby make her 3 vinyl cushions. She also wanted 3 cloth covers for the cushions, but she wanted something like the fold over sandwich baggies.
Although the woman was speaking Spanish, Hubby was having a hard time understanding what she wanted. And he's been in the upholstery biz for 19 years!
That's where I stepped in. I knew exactly what she was talking about. And we had a two minute conversation about the practicality of these fold-over covers before she left.
Hubby turned to me and asked, "Do you really know what she's talking about?"
To which I answered, "Of course! I've seen Martha Stewart do it a couple of times. How hard can it be?"
I measured. I cut material. I hemmed.
I stitched up the sides.
And voila...three fold-over covers! Cute, huh?
I knew all these years of watching Martha Stewart, in English and in Spanish, would come in handy some day!
