Special Project – Sewing Time

Close up cross stitch designThis year I decided to make something special for my granddaughter for Easter/Spring.  I was looking through some pictures of my daughter when she was two years old, and remembered my good old sewing days.

I used to sew quite often when I was a stay home mom, but it has been a while now.

I searched through some old patterns I saved from  my daughter’s outfits, and decided to use them again for her daughter.

I also found some embroidery thread, which my daughter used for craft projects  in her teen years, so I used some of these as well.  This turned out to be a reminiscing time, and a new outfit, all at the same time.

Here are some pictures of the finished product:

A product of something old and something new, and most of all, something from the heart, for a very special person in my life.

Grandchildren are a bundle of joy, and a wonderful therapy for grandparents.

Tip I used a medium size canvas, as a guide for cross stitching on this fabric.  I also purchased a beautiful crochet hat (at my favorite store – TJ Max), which added a perfect finishing touch to the whole outfit.
