Heirloom Sewing… On the Road!

I spent the last few days visiting my sister Hanne.  Her birthday is coming up, and my mom called me Thursday morning to see if I wanted to drive with her to deliver the birthday present in person.  How could I say no!  It’s about a 5 hour drive so I took some handwork along. 

I realized this is the time to start buying Christmas dresses for your precious baby girls, so I embroidered 2 baby Christmas dresses, and a blessing/Christening gown.  All dresses include a matching slip.  If any of you are interested in purchasing one of these before I put it in My Etsy Shop , please leave a comment on this post!  I will finish sewing them together within the next week, so if you need the dress before then, I’ll be more than happy to finish it sooner!

I also have some cute ‘snow people’ flannel to make into blankets and burp cloths.  Anyone interested in me making one (or more) for you???

About Missy

I'm a wife to an awesome Army vet, and mother to four daughters and three step-sons! I love to sew. I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.

    I wish I could have gone to NM with you…

    It was inspiring to watch you do the embroidery on these exquisite little dresses. It was so fun that I got to choose the color of red on the second dress somewhere on the road between Holbrook and Gallup. I am so amazed at the fine detailed work you do and the finishing of the seams, choice of fabric and laces.
