It's Beginning to Look a Lot...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! At least in the sewing room. Fabric is washed, cut out and pleated. Ready to start stitching.


Fabric is Swiss flannel, again. Smocked with Ellen McCarn's Candy-liscious. I did decide to switch up the colors and go with a more contemporary lime green for the holly as opposed to the traditional green. For the patterns, my stand-by Children's Corner bishop and Chery Williams, "Baby Bubbles" for baby brother. Fabric and buttons from BessieMary. Piping will be red microcheck. Have to get busy.

Parting Shot:

Somebody wanted Mimi to take them with her. Next time I will sneak out when she isn't looking. Daddy is trying to distract her with socks.


  1. and the socks aren't doing it!
    How could you walk away from that face? Oh dear, is she precious.

  2. How can you resist that face Mimi?
    Love your fabric & pattern choices

  3. I love that Smocking Plate!! And love the Bishop over the jeans!!! what a doll

  4. Poor baby girl :( She is so cute and love that bishop over blue jeans!

  5. Must have been hard to leave such a cutie pie! Can't wait to see the finished garments!

  6. Not sure whether to laugh at that last photo, or pout with her. So sweet.
    Your smocked candy canes will be even sweeter than the real ones!

  7. Is she wanting to escape the brother? Love your choices and love the green color.

  8. Just love your blog and clothes you make!Very Impressive! Just reading your bio and better hurry and change to 2 grandbabies :)!
