So, I am OBVIOUSLY not a photo taker. I have had lots of comments on my car seat cover for my baby; so sorry I have taken so long to post it...I've been a little busy, ha ha. My favoritist photographer has moved, so you have to put up with these lame pics. When I was pregnant I woke up every night at 4:00 or 4:40 on the dot. Weird, I know...but this is when I came up with my best ideas! I really wanted to improve the idea of a car seat cover...so I made it like a tent with a zipper. You can leave it down all zipped up, or un-zip it and have a way to peak at your sleeping babe. Or you can have it unzipped and have half of it folded back and the other half protecting baby from sun or something. I have found it to be very nice. So! If you want one...you will probably have to get me to make you one...since I made it up. You know how to reach me! :)

Adeline was born 8 years ago and although I had been sewing a little before she was born, she really became my main inspiration to improve my sewing skills. I have a friend whose mother-in-law had made all of the daughters and daughters-in-law wedding dresses in their family. When I learned this about my friend and I now had my own little princess I decided that one day I would make her a baptism dress, and one day a wedding dress. There is something really special about hand making something for someone you love, and also being on the receiving end of something handmade. Nostalgia. Heirloom. Keepsake. All of my little projects in between I have looked at as opportunities to practice and learn. The baptism dress has been half of my ultimate goal as a seamstress. As I now look back I feel really happy and overjoyed about all I have learned about sewing and raising a little girl. I also have to keep pinching myself. I cannot really believe that the day has come for me to make one of the white dresses. I stewed over what to do with this dress, what kind of cuts and lines and styles to follow, and whether to follow a pattern or create my own. In the end I went with simple, but princessy. I love it. When it was coming down to the time to start this dress I seriously almost bagged the idea altogether. I don't really even know why....laziness, anxiety, overwhelmed feelings of being pregnant, lots of other things going on, other dumb reasons, etc. I said a prayer to help me feel like I could do it and, I have to say I felt guidance and a special feeling every step of the way...and peace. Making a baptism dress for my "baby" girl has been somewhat of a spiritual experience! I am so happy with Adeline. I am so happy to be a mom. I am so happy with this special white dress.
