- Sewing and cooking are two of my favorite things. In the past, I often found myself searching for pictures and details of projects I have done, without success. So I decided to start documenting my creations. Then my son suggested I add my recipes to the blog so that they are documented also.

Sewing for Baby
I haven't been blogging much lately but I have been sewing for my granddaughter. Here she is at 4 months. I haven't made clothing for little ones for a long time but it definitely is fun to do it again.
I was turned onto the Children's Corner Patterns http://childrenscornerinc.com/wp/ by an online friend and bought the Taylor pattern. So far I have made 2 in size 3 months which fit my granddaughter now at 13 pounds. I know I will make this little summer romper next year again in a bigger size. There are no exposed seams once it is turned and looks so well finished. Plus it takes only a few hours to make. I have embroidered on both that I made. I used the Babyville snaps from Joann Fabrics and they were quite easy to install.
I also made an outfit from McCall's, # M6303. This dress also is turned and has no exposed seams. However the panties with it really are oversized and I would probably use another pattern for the bottoms next time. I really love the crossover back of this dress. The smallest size of this pattern is small which is too big at present but should fit when she is around 16 pounds.
