I've always loved sewing and crafting. It wasn't until after I was married and got close to my sister-in-law Teresa, that I really took off! She taught me the basics of quilting and I've been sewing ever since. Scrapbooking has always interested me, and I love it! And I'm not afraid to try my hand at other crafty projects here and there. I consider it a great outlet and stress reliever!
I'll be honest, I'm pretty proud and excited about this little outfit!Not more than a year ago, I had pretty much sworn off sewing clothing. PERIOD. After a nightmare experience involving a little jacket shrug for a prom dress, I was DONE. Obviously my fears have worn off a bit, which I'm sure is due to the 'nesting instinct' I'm feeling (after all, the baby is on his way in less than two weeks!!) I decided to try to tackle a little outfit for the baby to be blessed in at church. I DID IT! HOORAY! It even turned out like I had envisioned. Now I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will fit the baby okay. I sewed the XS size, but it still looks huge to me. We'll just have to wait and see. - Honestly, either way, sewing this outfit has renewed my confidence in myself...which is very valuable indeed.
