Sewing for little girls

Wow still sewing! I have had so much fun creating these little outfits. However the real fun has been giving them away. I think I am actually getting a bit better the more I do. I have guessed a lot but seems to have worked. The top two skirts are dress-up skirts, made from tulle. I made one for my precious granddaughter Cassie; had a bit of tulle left over so made the other for a little friend. The rose set has been made up for my nephews daughter Isabella.

Subway Art

There have been a few variations of subway art around and I am still not sure how one would describe it. I guess it is the placement of text that forms the art?? Anyway thought I would have a go, so I made this up on my computer. An early aniversary present to me! Was really happy with how it turned out. Hubby likes it too!

Skirt with matching bib and headband

Oh my goodness. I can't believe I have been sewing! I have not sewn for about 20 years. When my children were small I did sew for them, more out of necessity than anything. I have never really been that keen to sew. So it surprises me that I am again sewing ...and actually enjoying doing so.
I thank God for my abilities and often feel a bit guilty that I don't put His gifts into practice more often.
I made these little sets for my grand nieces Alyssa and Heidi.
The sets have a skirt, matching bibs a traditional style and a bandana bib. ( I really like the bandana bibs) I also add a headband that I make to match Kinda cute!
