Sleeping Baby in Sweet Daygown

Baby Mariko looks pretty content!
As all babies wearing sweet baby clothes made by loving friends and relatives are apt to be!
(especially if they use my Old Fashioned Baby patterns)

Thankyou Sarah, for sending me these cute pictures!
Sarah used  my Sweet and Simple pattern to make this Christmas Daygown.
I love the way little Mariko is floating through the stars, just like Wynken, Blynken and Nod!

The pattern I used for the Daygown featured in Sew Beautiful is my new, yet to be released Daygown.   
You can use any of my Daygowns, though.   The article was showing how to lengthen any Daygown and  add a ribbon  or elastic to close up the bottom and keep the little feet snugly!

This is an illustration showing my new Daygown in baby colors - now that Christmas is over.
And Joy!!  Pattern is almost ready to be sent to the Printer!

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod
by Eugene Field

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe-
Sailed on a river of crystal light
Into a sea of dew.
"Where are you going, and what do you  wish?"
The old moon asked the three.
"We have come to fish for the herring-fish
That live in this beautiful sea:
Nets of silver and gold have we,"
Said Wynken,
And Nod.

Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes,
And Nod is a little head,
And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies
Is a wee one's trundle-bed;
So shut your eyes while Mother sings
Of wonderful sights that be,
And you shall see the beautiful things
As you rock in the misty sea
Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three:-
And Nod.

This poem is a favorite of mine...many nights I read this to my own little babies.

Sweet Dreams!

I love that it will not be long until the new blue pattern will be here. I love the poem as well. It was a childhood favorite.
