Special Project – Sewing Time
This 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:
Coat and a matching dress (lining, button holes, and cross stitch embroidery)
Coat and dress outfit.
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.
