sew and tell
My children have always loved what I've made for them...they're my fan club and inspiration, all in one. But I must admit, the wonderful praise you've been singing has me dancing around the house...and my appreciation is so much bigger than a simple "thank you"!
This sleeping matryoshka doll is my new favorite print and I'm certain it will be followed up with more variations. I'm having sooooo much fun!
This little girl of mine is having a hard time letting me share with you (my sweet, typical 3 year old) and I can't help but smile...it signifies a success. She's very particular. She didn't even want it up on the clothes line...just wanted it on. She wore her new nightie until lunch time!
This night shirt was upcycled from her big brother's out grown long sleeve shirt.
Here's that owl I was telling you about. After seeing the owl T-shirt, my daughter so wanted a little owl baby of her own...this is from a rejected print on linen, but she loves him and puts him under her pillow to sleep.
After the owl baby was "born", my daughter quietly went into my studio and pointed to the exact fabric she'd love the mommy owl to be made from. Babies need mothers, after all. This mama owl is a bit psychedelic, but the eyes are really from the same print and I think it works in a wild sort of way. That girl is quite the designer.
Whether you're cooking, making, sewing, playing...I hope you have a wonderful and creative weekend!
