    I have been sewing up a storm !!

    I made some little girly things for Raiden and Bella.
    I had a blast making these. The dress and pantaloons (pictures 1 & 3) pattern are from Tie Dye Diva. The patterns are called Big Bow Dress and Pretty Pantaloons. The Pinafore's and Summer Top's are from the book "One yard wonders".

    I hope you like them

    9. pillowcases for them

    Too cute. You did a bang up job.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Those are the cutest clothes. My mother made us girls clothes when we were growing up. We always got compliments. Now it is expensive to buy that quality of clothes.

    My Mom used to make our clothes when we were growing up. And I made clothes for my kids too.
    The patterns today are just to cute.

    Thanks everyone, they go out in the mail tomorrow.

    We are sending out the usual things......socks, undies. And some stuff for Mom, PJ pants to wear around the house and a nice sparkling set of new silverware.

    Such pretty clothes for the little girls. I, too, had a mother who made all our clothes, and I made my own and my kids' ~ haven't sewn clothes in a long time, though. Yours are beautiful. I hope they send pics with the girls wearing them!

    Thanks everyone who posted since my last thanks!!

    When I get back into the sewing room I have to finish a quilt top. And then it's off to the "Annex" to put a few quilts on the long arm.

    Adorable outfits.

    Hope the little girls enjoy them!
