Tell me again
Why you think that MY sewing
Should save YOU money?

Check out the Selfish Seamstress Store for haiku goodies- proceeds will be donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Isn’t it funny
How you only ever call
When you need stuff fixed?

Deadline grows closer,
I’m sewing in a puddle
Of tears and regret.

For better or worse,
For richer or for poorer,
But mend your own pants.

Let’s start all over
Just make it all go away,
Darling seam ripper.

You always give up
Just when things are working out.
Stupid bobbin thread.

Sweetheart out of town
Means Cheerios for supper
And sewing till dawn

It hurts me to think
Of wasting precious fabric
On your sorry ass.

At long last, I have finally gotten around to adding new merchandise to the Selfish Seamstress Store! That’s right, you can now pick up t-shirts, mugs, and totes with all of your recent favorites, like “I just don’t want to,” “You bloodsucking leech,” “If I’m so selfish,” “Sweet beloved stash,” “I mended your pants,” and of course “When monkeys fly out my butt.” Classy! And of course, you can still get merchandise with all of your favorite classic haikus.

100% of royalties from all new purchases will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a leading institute for research on and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic diseases. You can read more about this wonderful non-profit institution here.

Your generous purchases of Selfish Seamstress merchandise have already resulted in donations of $270 to the Atlanta Humane Society, and $464 to the American Red Cross and $120 to Doctors Without Borders to help with disaster relief efforts in Haiti. (Actually, a little more than that for the Red Cross but I still have to tally it up.) So how about another fun mug or shirt to help some children who are in need?

Once again, here’s the IMPORTANT NITTY GRITTY:

1) All of the royalties I receive will be donated. Please navigate to the Selfish Seamstress Store from a link on my blog – if you do so, Zazzle will double the royalty from 15% to 30% – that means you pay the same for your shirt, but twice as much will get donated! If you get to the store from a bookmark, by typing in the URL, or from any other link on the web, the royalty will only be 15%. (The remainder of your purchase price goes to Zazzle for producing the merchandise, operating costs, etc.)

2) You can get any haiku you want on any t-shirt, mug, or tote.  So if you love the “Sweet beloved stash” haiku, but want it on baseball T instead of a ringer T, just click on the item and go to “customize.”  This will allow you to play with the colors and styles to get exactly the haiku you want on exactly the shirt, mug, or tote you want!

For personal reasons, supporting research and treatment of childhood cancer is a cause very near and dear to the little empty space in the Selfish Seamstress’s chest where her heart would be if she had one. Please consider making a purchase and in doing so, a donation to this wonderful and urgent cause.

Pounding fists on floor
Complaining, whining, pouting
I want a serger!!

Sew something for you?
It’s not that I don’t have time,
I just don’t want to.

Stop coming over.
Get your own sewing machine,
You bloodsucking leech.

If I’m so selfish
Then why is it always YOU
Asking ME for stuff?

Things were casual,
Then love grew and so did you.
Sweet, beloved stash.

Sure, I’ll sew for you
When monkeys fly out my butt.
Soon enough for you?
