With a little inspiration from…

For Christmas, Santa brought me a sewing machine.  I promptly purchased a few supplies to aid me in my quest to have pants that aren’t too long.  My mother taught me to hem pants ages ago but I’d never had a sewing machine and I’m too impatient to wait for tailors to shorten my pants.  Finally I can look like…
