Fall stitching


I didn't get this little bishop finished quite as quickly as I originally planned. Doesn't that happen to all of us? 


I used a combination of Scared-d-Cat and Octo-Bear, both by Little Memories. I didn't want specifically Halloween or Thanksgiving. So I went with a general fall theme.


The pattern is Children's Corner Bishop. I used a pima cotton called Kiwi Gingham from Bessie Mary.


Hopefully I will have a picture of our baby modeling her new bishop soon. I am onto Christmas sewing and finishing up convention projects. (The darker green around the center pumpkin is because the fabric is still wet where I spritzed out the blue marker. I'm delivering the dress within the hour and didn't have time to wait for it to dry completely.)

  3. Love it! I'm starting a red gingham bishop for our newest little one. She's 3 months now. I'm going to make it so that she can wear it for Christmas and Valentine's. I love it when they can get multiple uses out of a dress.

  6. Martha, Another lovely original. Did you find the length to be rather short? I am using this pattern for Christening dresses and it calls for a 4inch hem. I bought entrdeux and lace for the hem when I stopped at Elegant Stitches because I thought the dresses would be too short. Where do you think the hem falls on the child? Susan VH
