He found one of the Twins old trainer bikes in the shed. It was pretty much buggered so he pulled off the pedals and shortened the seat by cutting off and re-welding the frame.
Then he came in for lunch and a kip.
At first I said 'No' but then I thought.
What would Sandi do?
Sandi is my friend, a engineer and a SAHM.
If she needs a new 'something' she makes it.
Her daughter has diabetes and she designs and sews her clothes to carry her pump.
The cat needed a new basket,she sewed a Taj Mahal.
And she also has her own patterns.
I figured I am not Sandi but I can have a go!
Following the gardening rule 1 tree or 3!
This bias is wider then usual.
Then I stitched it in place with both edges butting together.
Elastic cord would have been better.
I had a toggle that I had cut off an old school bag so I used that to keep the elastic firmly in place.
Its not perfect but Tilly is rapt.
A new seat made by Mum.
All in the time it took Dad to have a sleep.
