    I just wanted to take a moment to thank my Mom and share what she just did for me. My Mom is a >75 year old cancer survivor but stays more active than most people I know. In addition to playing golf multiple days a week, and heading up her golf group and being president of her HOA, she is one helluva seamstress.

    When I mentioned I wanted a pinball cover to protect the game I have that can get sunlight on it she offered to make it for me. Then she thought it would better if it was customized a little. That customization became what you see in the pics. She made a custom applique of each of the games that I have/have had in my collection.

    I hope you guys think it's as cool as I do.

    Thanks, Mom. You rock!

    You have a great mom. Love the Lord of the Rings applique.

    Really awesome. To me the effort and love she put into that makes it worth more then the machine it’s covering. Moms are awesome.

    Your mom RULES. She should open a shop here!

    #5 6 months ago

    . Thanks guys.

    You’re right. I think she should open a shop. After all the effort I’m not sure if she’d be too up for that.

    #6 6 months ago

    Agreed on the shop, I would definitely be into getting a nice looking cover for my games.

    That is why Moms are number 1

    Your mom is awesome for sure. The rest of the world could take a page from her. Your a lucky guy and don't forget to tell that amazing woman we all think she's the best.

    I have a need for 5. Ask her what she wants to make them.

    Those are awesome!

    Your mom rules!
    Tell her I said so

    I very seldom post anything on Pinside that's not a question or response to a question, but this caught my attention and made me want to comment on how awesome it is that your mom takes such an interest in your hobby and wanted to do something so nice for you. I think that's so cool that she did that!

    #12 6 months ago

    Thanks very much. I’ll be sure to tell her. Actually, I’ll send her a few screen shots too. I’m not sure if she’ll believe me if I just told her.

    Glad you think it was as cool as me.

    Excellent work, you shou ki d be proud of her!! Where did she get the game logos?

    #14 6 months ago

    Should be I meant

    #15 6 months ago

    Yay....Just what Pinside has been needing lately; a feel good thread!!

    Nice work, Mom!!!

    #16 6 months ago

    My daughter (15) did most of the design work but she didn’t want me to mention her. She took pictures and screen shots from on-line pics and then modified to make the layers for the applique. We then tweaked until it was something my mom could make.

    Shhh, don’t tell her I told you.

    #17 6 months ago

    That’s great and really nice looking! Now she needs to start her own custom design cover business.

    Quoted from Daditude:I have a need for 5. Ask her what she wants to make them.
    Those are awesome!

    Do you mean 5 logos or 5 covers? I’ll ask her but no guarantees.

    #19 6 months ago

    If she makes logos, I'd be interested in 6

    Quoted from Brady2Gronk:

    If you are serious, I would be interested in 5 covers with logos (single logo to match the pinball).

    So, where did she get the logos, or did she make them?

    #22 5 months ago

    Sorry for the delay; I didn't see your response. She made them. My daughter helped design the layers then my mom cut them out layer by layer then sewed them together then finally to the cover. Pretty cool.
