A Mami's Promise

Come, Sasha tell you story.

Once upon a time, a mother promised her son that she will buy him Elmo T-Shirt because whenever she wears her own Elmo T-Shirt, her son will look and kiss the Elmo on the shirt. So this mother went around all the shopping malls to look for an Elmo T-Shirt. But it was either too expensive or it's too ugly.

So one day, the mother went to Kamdar to buy 4 pieces of 1/2 meter cloth. Black, Orange, Yellow and Red. But when this mother went home, she didn't get to sew because she was too tired.

And then the next day, she took out the materials and began to draw left and right and round and round. She thought that she would make a mess out of this since there's is no other guide besides her own Elmo T-Shirt, cloth and a pen.


And then she snip snip the cloth and arranged the cloth and Elmo began to look like.....Elmo. And she began to use her MIL's old sewing machine and she began to sew, and sew and sew. And then she she accidentally poke her fingers with the pins. But she continued to sew and sew while her hubby and her son is watching Barney in the room.

And finally she finished her sewing.


And she presented it to her son. And her son said thank you, by grabbing the pillow and gave the pillow a big bear hug.

And he fell asleep not long after that.
And the mother's back is senget now because she sew on the floor.

The end.
