Show and Tell (4/24)

Show and Tell

Welcome to "Show and Tell Friday!" Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!


I haven't shared in a long time. I know...shame on me. :-) I have already shared these before with others, but I wanted to share a couple of the dresses I have made for my Sweet E. She is such a pleasure to sew for. She loves getting new dresses and I enjoy creating new things and practicing my sewing skills. :-)

This is the dress I made for her birthday. She requested pink and red...so I picked something in the middle. I have never made this dress before but love how it turned out. She has already worn it many times!


I enjoyed making this jumper as well because she can wear it during any season. :-)

I just realized I don't have a picture of her other birthday outfit. Shame on me...I will have to get a picture of that one soon. :-) Hope you enjoyed these! :-)

I love the dresses. They are so pretty. I am sure that your granddaughter feels they are very special because they were made by you.
