I love to sew. I learned early on that if a girl is going to get what she wants she has to nag like crazy.(jk) I did however beg my mom to teach me to sew and she did. If you were to hear my mom tell the story it would go something like this. 'She was begging to learn how to sew. It was driving me crazy, so I thought I would teach her a lesson and she would give up and leave me alone until she got older. I told her how to follow the instructions, use the pattern pieces, cut them out and how to use the sewing machine, but she had to do it herself. I was not going to do it for her. To my surprise she made her very first project a gown for her little sister.' Now it might help you to know that I was somewhere around 5 or 6 years old at the time. This could explain why she wasn't too excited to teach me. I loved it and it wasn't too long before I took over all the sewing projects. I loved being with my mom and watching everything she was doing and I wanted to be a part of it. We have enjoyed many sewing projects together, most of them being clothes for family, friends or as baby gifts.
Now I get to share this same love for sewing with Princess. She started helping me when she was very young. I don't even think she was 2 yet when she first started handing me pins and trying to pin fabric down. Princess made her first project when she was 5, a skirt for herself.
I do want to learn more about sewing crafts and quilting as I don't have much experience in this area of sewing.
Here are some of my favorite past outfits.
Wow! How time flies. It seems like just yesterday I was creating these special outfits for my babies. I blink and they are growing up from babies, to toddlers, to children. It really brings home the meaning of James 4:14 "Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." I am off to enjoy my vapour!
