Guess What I’m Making?

Leave a comment

My granddaughter is here this weekend because we had a big cookout for family and friends.  She’s 5.  That’s the age I usually make a special gift.  Here’s the first piece of the gift.



Sewing with my granddaughter is very different.  I trying to concentrate on the construction of her gift and she wants to have conversations.  She giving me pieces of scrap fabric and asking me to stitch this.  Of course this is while I am in the midst of stitching part of her gift. She has one of my thread boxes.  She’s asking for a needle.  She wants a drink.  This is different, but FUN!  Here’s another piece of the gift.




My granddaughter has been bathed and has her PJs on, but she won’t go to sleep.  Why do kids fight sleep?  I finished another piece of the gift.



She’s still up.  She’s wants to help, but there nothing she can do.  The pieces of the gift are coming together.



She went to sleep a long time ago.  I didn’t realize how late it was.  She leaves in the morning and I want her to have this gift.  The main part of the gift is done.



I did get some sleep.   Then I worked on the clothes.  Pink is one of my granddaughter’s favorite colors.  Isn’t it a favorite color of many little girls.  My granddaughter also wanted a flower in her hair and a skirt.  Here’s the gift.  My grandbaby loves it and named the doll Snowbell.  I asked her why that name.  She replied, “Because I want to.”  Is life really that simple?

Snowbell, the gift

I started sewing when I was 11 years old, and had my own clients when I was 12. I graduated from the H.S. of Fashion Industries, majoring in fashion design. I expanded my technical background by attending evening classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology and working many years at a major pattern company. I have been creating custom wedding gowns and evening dresses for more years than I care to count. I LOVE WORKING WITH FABRICS. I love fine sewing techniques. I love creating beautiful dresses.
