Secret Sewing

 It's been a while since I've written a blog post.

Part of the reason is I've been doing some secret sewing

and the other part is I haven't felt like sewing much

beyond the secret sewing.

The secret sewing was gifted yesterday, so I can show it now.


We had a baby shower for my daughter yesterday

and, of course,  I had to make some baby girl things.

Before quilting I made clothes for my daughters

and their dolls and my nieces and their dolls

and my goddaughter and her doll.

Now I can make clothes for my granddaughter

and her dolls. (Someday!)


I found this green fabric in a quilt shop in

Hilton Head and knew I needed to make a little

outfit for Baby Girl.

This pattern is so quick and easy to make.

The back is so cute with it's crisscross.

I had these fabrics in my stash.

The bloomers are pink flamingos, too.

I had these fabrics in my stash, too.


Because of the times we are in,

masks and distancing were necessary for the baby shower.

The nursery is being done in a Snoopy/Charlie Brown theme

because my daughter LOVES Charlie Brown.



I was able to order Charlie Brown fabric and made masks

for everyone!


 Yes, they did have elastic before they were given!

It was a wonderful shower.


I picked up two quilts from my LAQ,

so should have those to show soon. The binding is almost

done on one.


Happy Quilting!

I made those same little tops and bloomers for a couple of my granddaughters for their 1st birthday. I had made the same outfit for my daughter when she was @ 1-2 yrs old as well. I love that pattern and yours turned out so cute, too.

Congrats on the granddaughter! Those little tops are so cute. If my new great is a girl, I may be asking for the patterns.

Congratulations on your granddaughter! I have our first grandchild, a girl, due in December, so I am looking forward to making some clothes for her. What pattern did you use for your little clothes?
Those masks were fun!

If we have to wear a mask why not make it fun! Those are some really cute little outfits you made.

Oh my goodness! Those are all so sweet. I can’t wait to see pics of the little girl in them. Those masks are so cute too. That was a great idea to carry out a theme. I have a friend who is a Snoopy fanatic. I should make her one. May I ask where you found your fabric?

Kim said...

The little dresses and matching knickers are adorable! Such a sweet pattern and each fabric just perfect for a little girl. How exciting that your granddaughter will soon be causing you and your family great joy. The Snoopy is fabric is cute.

What fun to be making the clothes! I used to make all my daughters clothes and doll clothes, but I just haven't gotten into it for the grandkids! I did make Nicole one dress. The masks are great! You have been busy!

How wonderful, Ramona! Those Charlie Brown masks will be wonderful keepsakes that party guests are sure to get a lot of use out of, unfortunately. And those dresses are just adorable! Congratulations to your family. Such an exciting time!
