Fine Heirloom Sewing, Smocking and Hand Embroidery
"Baby will be well and smiling in little garments made by Mother, Auntie, Grannie and loving friends!"
Please join me as I teach the old fashioned techniques and skills needed to sew baby clothes. You will find lessons that start at the very beginning and take you step by step as we sew little baby clothes together. May you find much joy and pleasure in making them.
Above is her illustration of a Rose Flower Fairie.
Emma's favorite color is Pink.
For her birthday I made her a little Quilt. Large enough to cover her but small enough to carry around. I took a fabric panel, stitched borders to it, had it professionally quilted and then folded the backing over to create the binding.
Then I hand embroidered a Label to stitch to the back. I used two strands of floss and just embroidered over my own handwritting to make it personal.
Added the date and a Bullion Rose.
And a scripture.
She loved it.
And we both were happy!

Brenda from It's Sew Heavenly, where I taught recently is a busy bee.
This cute red Smocked Bishop lacked only the neckband being sewn down.
It's probably done by now.
These smocked Bears are a favorite of mine!
And the red Whip Stitch Piping (everything available from It's Sew Heavenly) makes this little dress striking.
Don't you love how the piping looks on the sleeve?
It sets it off to perfection!

I love babies, embroidery and old fashioned Baby Clothes!! I am the designer for the pattern line "The Old Fashioned Baby". My designs reflect my interest in vintage infant's and children's clothing, as do my classes, many of which include techniques and embellishments used from the late 1800's to the 1950's. I teach these techniques around the United States and publish some of my designs and ideas in Sew Beautiful magazine. And I love Roses and all the flowers in My Garden (and yours too, probably).
