I go each year to the Ohio Renaissance Fair in Harveysburg, OH. As a Renfest nut, I always go in costume. I also have the problem that I cannot stand for more than 5 minutes or walk for more than 200 feet without pain in my lower back. I, therefore, use one of those 3 wheeled electric mobility vehicles. My long skirts have a tendency to hang down and get run over by the wheels. This causes two problems. One is that it gets the skirt very dirty and two it can get caught in the wheel mechanism. Being a crafter, I was sure that there had to be a simple answer to this problem. While watching a movie about the antebellum days, I saw a lady who had a loop over her wrist to hold her long dress up as she danced. It struck me why can't I do that with my skirt and the motorized vehicle. So I crocheted two chain circles and put a row of single crochetes in them. I sewed them into the side seams of my skirt just up from the bottom far enough so they didn't show when I was standing up. When I sat down on my EMV I hooked the loops one over each side of the steering bar and it has worked out great. You have no idea how many of these loops I have made (without charge) for other people who thought they were the greatest thing since sliced bread. Doesn't anybody have an imagination anymore?
