My husband's mother is a wonderful seamstress. I thought I'd share a few of the beautiful pieces she has sewn for my children. They are so neat.
This little outfit was actually one she made for my husband when he was a baby. He was blessed in it.
How sweet is that little bow? And the straps?! Oh my. I almost want to cry thinking of how she must have felt holding her little boy in this outfit.
She brought it with her when she came to visit us. I was so excited for the opportunity to have my own little boy blessed in it. He had grown so much though that he only fit it for one Sunday! Wow wee.
And this is the blessing dress she made for my daughter. My daughter was tiny, and this fit her perfectly.
You can't tell from the image here, but it is actually quite long. I love it when blessing dresses are long.
Look at the detail!
And this is the dress she made most recently for my daughter. It really makes me want to learn to sew children's clothes. I love the style of this. Lace just does me in.
And I declare that this is one of my all time favorite fabrics. I just love delicate designs. And the colors are so subtle. They remind me of a story about Cinderella.
I think one of the things that makes a person beautiful is when they share their talents by taking so much time on a gift. That's really when I think a gift becomes a treasure.
