Baby Londyn in Pink Smocked Daygown

If you think I have gone soft in the head over this baby…..
you would be right.

She is wearing Old Fashioned Baby - Smocked Baby Clothes (which can be made without smocking simply by gathering the fabric instead of smocking it)

This Smocked Daygown appeared in Sew Beautiful Jan/Feb 2009 magazine and it gives the instructions for the Honeycomb Smocking you see.

I have just been waiting for a baby to wear it!!


Sweet Smocked Sleeves

Rosebuds embroidered on the collar.

Dainty Lace Edging is stitched on either side of the front opening.
(this is J lace, which is slightly changed now since they re-made it)



Here is Baby wearing it.  She had been wearing it all day but we don't mind the wrinkles.  
And I don't think you need to iron except for special Photos.

Still a little large on her. 
 At five weeks she is now 9 lbs and growing cubby.

where everything is possible
and the best is just beginning."

Londyns Baby Quilt (#1)


I never did post a photo of the completely finished Baby Quilt I made for my Granddaughter.
The cute old fashioned squares were given me by a friend.  I sashed them with a pretty pink.  Added a border and bound the quilt with the same fabric as the sashing.

Here we have Herself on the quilt so you can see the size (she is just over 7 lbs so is quite tiny).

Baby enjoyed being on the wide open floor and was a curious little girl.

I love to Sew!!
