Last night, I finally got started on making a baptismal gown for my little girl, and I am so geeked about how it is turning out. I am modifying a basic baptismal gown to make it look more like another ($300!) one that I love. I can barely believe I just sewed that! It’s those little moments of victory that make sewing and learning new sewing skills so incredibly worth it.
And because I am posting anyway, here is yet another baby blanket. This one is fun because it holds the record for Fastest Baby Shower Gift Turn Around Time. Ten minutes after being invited, I walked out the door to go fabric shopping, and just 45 minutes later, I had the fabric in the wash. The baby blanket and “Mommy Clips” where finished just in the time for the shower that evening. I was glad I could still give handmade at such short notice, and I hope her new little girl loves her not-too-pink girly baby blanket.
Well, it’s time for me to get my kids down for nap-time, so I can continue puttering away at the baptismal gown.
What’s on your sewing table these days?
