My little grand daughter is three….how time flys

Can you believe it? My grand daughter is three years old. And she loves dressing up. She is always trying her clothes on and then pretending to be someone else. And what better thing for me than to make her a new outfit for dressing up in.

A Snow White costume. Casey and Gran. (me)

I know that you can probably buy something like this online as “cheap as chips” but I love making clothes for my grandchildren. Come the day and they wont want me to anymore, I’m sure. So I am enjoying it while they want things from me.

I have to say that the costume took hours to make. It has an embroidery on the front with crystals attached and sleeves that had the wee red shapes stitched on – reverse applique – and then cut out (carefully) and then an applique stitch used to stitch the edges down. Embird is great for doing this sort of thing. Aren’t we lucky to have such a fabulous program to use for our sewing and embroidery. All it takes is a little imagination and patience.

Now, I really should mention that I now have two grand-daughters. My newest grand-daughter was born last month. She is my son’s second child. Her name is Daisy Ruby and she is named after both her great great grandmother and her great grandmother. I’ll post some photos later!

    Hi Carolyn,
    Please forgive my leaving this in a comment, I couldn’t find an e-mail address for you. I’m making an index of Australian sewing bloggers, which you can find here: http://iammsfrizzle.blogspot.com/2014/12/sewists-of-australia.html I hope you don’t mind being on it- just let me know if you want to be removed. Thank you!
