When I think back about why I didn't sew much in the past...it makes me sad. Good grief - one of the biggest things that held me back was that I could never remember how to thread the sewing machine and it would take an hour to get out the manual and do trial and error. I just didn't sew enough to get the process stuck in my head. How pathetic is that?
As much as I love sewing dresses and frilly things for my girls now...it's sad to think about how fun it would have been to make some adorable things for my baby girls! I missed the chance since I didn't really sew until last year when Isa was 2. :(
BUT I'm excited about all the newborn little girls coming into my family and hopefully their mamas will let me sew something for them from time to time.
Around Christmas my newest little niece was born (and we haven't even gotten to meet her yet, a situation we need to remedy quickly)! Then we found out we're having another sweet little niece this Spring! And then, you may remember, my cousin and his wife are having a girl this Spring too!
When Amelia was born just before Christmas, I wanted to make her something and it turned out to be one of my favorite projects ever!
I have many more of these little darlings in the works in different prints, materials, etc. An incredible children's boutique even has had interest in carrying them!! So we'll see where that goes (maybe nowhere...but it's still exciting to think about).
And since I missed having tiny boots like this for my girls when they were babies, I'm working on whipping up a pattern for them to have something similar for slippers. I'll keep you posted on how that works out! Would anyone else be interested in a pattern if I made one?
