Pretty Stuff

blessing dress

I learned to sew when I was young and grew up making my own clothes most of the time.   Then I made my children’s clothes through their growing up years.  I still sew a lot but not clothes very much anymore.  However, this week I made a little blessing dress for our granddaughter’s special day.

It was nice to be using 5/8” seams instead of 1/4” for a change.

I’ve also been playing around with beads, making fobs for some of my scissors.  Sewing is enjoyable… and now even more so.

What a sweet little dress and your gd looks adorable in it. So sweet.
Great fobs. I was wondering what you call the piece with the string? I have a scissor fob that someone made me but the same thing you used on your fobs before the string thing is not big enough for the handle of the scissors so I thought I might get the little string and attach it.
Hope I am making sense.

What a gorgeous blessing dress, Annette. It looks so feminine and tender.

Love your scissor fobs. I'm a firm believer that all scissors need some jewelry to dress themselves in.
