So I’m watching Natsume Yuujinchou episode 17, “A Chick Hatches,” and I just got to the part where Natsume sews the little outfit for the tatsumi!!! Like, he really just makes it this beautiful, perfectly scaled little outfit in what seems to be very little time.
On one hand, that’s SO ADORABLE, but on another, sadder hand (because most things about Natsume are be sad from some perspective) he had to have learned somehow, and for some reason. I bet it’s a handy skill to have when you’re involved in such regular, dangerous, and athletic encounters with youkai, and don’t have the ability to ask your guardians for new clothes. It makes me wonder what other skills he’s picked up; for instance, we know he cuts his own hair. Natsume’s a very self-sufficient and multi-faceted person, and it’s always interesting to get to see that in the show
