We established in the previous post that my dad is an expert cake decorator
But did you know that he could do this.........
My dad just finished up an awesome summer school project for Teacher Tiffany. He made a covered wagon, a hand cart and all the goodies that go inside of them for Tiff's classroom.
This is a peak into the covered wagon.
He made these little bags of sugar, salt, corn meal, flour and seeds. He sewed each of the bags and filled them then labeled them
He made this little table and chair set, the stove and the barrel of water
He made this tool chest and found these little tools to put in it
He made this trunk for clothes and put together a little sewing kit
These are the clothes that he was ironing onto fabric to put in the clothes trunk
These are the bed rolls that he sewed (yes, I said SEWED! He is now a qualified master seamstress!)
The sewing-piece-de-resistance would be this wagon cover. and his wood working piece-de-resistance would be the detail on this wagon. Notice the hand break at the front of the wagon. It works the brakes on the back wheels on both side of the wagon. Don't forget to check out the hinged box under the footrest on the wagon
Now that I know he has all this secret talent, I'll be asking him to sew me some slacks and a nice blouse for Christmas and then ask him to build me a wardrobe to hang them in :)
