I was giddy with excitement to learn tonight that Soccer Son had been voted Coach of the Year by his fellow high school soccer coaches. I gather, though, the award tends to be somewhat automatically given to the coach of the winning team--and Soccer Son's team won this year. Still, I think his training and leadership had a lot to do with it--he's really good with those kids.
What did the team get? Well, they got this pennant, for one thing. And that's where having a blog comes in handy, because I need your advice.
Soccer Son showed up tonight with the pennant in hand and asked me if I could sew the letters down. You see, he expects the pennant to hang in the gymnasium for "15 to 20 years," and he's worried the glue will dry out and the letters will fall off if they're not sewn down. Well, of course I said I'd do it, but I wonder how it should be done. Have you ever done anything similar? Would you hand stitch it using a blanket stitch or machine stitch it using a straight stitch? Or something else?
Thanks for your input! I appreciate the help.
