I have the funniest bunch of coworkers. They loved my hat and had a lot of fun with it. The captain put the hat high above her cube and tells everyone about how I made an awesome Spartan hat for the team. A week or so after the race, the captain found this in her cube:
The right side is the official logo, and someone had taken a picture of the captain wearing the hat, then created our own logo!
When my creations are so loved & mentioned, it makes me feel very appreciated and satisfied. This was definitely a few hours well spent, even though I wasnt sewing for myself!

Do you think they will ask you to make a hat every year and then start asking to making more and more thing for the company events? I hope not. It’d be hard to say no now that you did it for them once already.
hahaha, hence the “slippery slope”. luckily, we only have one logo that is “hat-able”. but well, i get the “can you make this for me” quite a lot and i’ve always been able to say no. i just get annoyed that i have to say no or that for some reason, people just really undervalue a seamstress’ time… when i cook/bake something good, i never hear “oh can you cook/bake that for me, and me only”, and cooking/baking takes so much less time!
