    Grand kid clothes and co-worker zip purse

    Took a break from quilting and made a dress and shirt (made shorts for grandson also but forgot to take picture)
    Was fun to sew clothes again and do a little embroidery.

    Purse is for a co-workers daughter who turned 5..and her daddy is a monster truck kind of a guy--so gave her a pink and purple monster truck of her own

    Really love the clothes you made! The fish fabric is adorable and so is the bee on the dress! And I'm sure Taylor loves HER monster truck!

    Only funny thing is that Granddaughter loved her dress...put it on and started twirling around...her brother now wants something that twirls! His folks are progressive enough that I could make him a camo skirt...but thinking of making a super hero cape so he can twirl as well! Always make me smile and I remember how fun it was to sew for my kids.

    I used to make my own clothes, then make a matching outfit for my daughter with the leftovers, but she is grown and her kids are nearly grown and I haven't sewn clothes in years. Your little outfits and purse are sew cute!

    I love your little clothes. I used to sew and embroider all my daughters dresses when she was small. Fun.
    I love the idea of the cape for twirling!

    Thanks everyone. Had a blast. Now working on baby quilt for my massage therapist who is due in August, and a matching one for the soon to be new babies big brother.

    I love sewing for my grandchildren. I mailed off a couple of simple shorts and tops for the one- and two-year-olds who live away, and my son called to tell me they were stripping before he finished opening the box. Their mom sent pictures of their cheesy smiles with new clothes on. Have fun with them!

    All 3 items look like something you'd find in a high-end shop -- very professional and very cute!

    The blue shirt is so cool and the dress is beautiful! I love sewing for my grandkids bu find it much harder to find interesting things to make for my grandson than my little granddaughter.
