It had been years since I had sewn clothing or used a pattern, but I wanted to sew a dress for my baby girl. It turned out huge!!! I was so disappointed, but that didn't stop me from trying again, and again, and again...
Here she is over a year later when the dress actually fit her. Five minutes after taking this picture, we went inside and she took a pair of scissors and cut a big hole in the front of the dress... :(
I started sewing for my daughter because 1. I had a hard time finding dresses that I liked and 2. I got tired of going places and seeing other kids with the exact same outfit my daughter was wearing, or had at home in her closet. I love, love, love creating outfits for her to wear and she loves helping me pick out the fabric and patterns for her new outfits!
Scarf. I've made several pretty ones of these for gifts. I need to get pictures of some of the other ones. Crayon rolls...before they were filled. I think my count of these things is up to 60 over the past few months...wow!
