Christmas Outfits Past Part 2

I hope you have all finished your Christmas sewing.  I’ve moved on to baking and gift wrapping and hope to finish up in time for our big family celebrations.

Here are a few more Christmas outfits from the past.  These gingerbread outfits for my  two older grandchildren were favorites of mine.   A few years later, new grandson Alastair wore Robert’s suit.



Ready-to-smock gingerbread outfits were paired up with a Creative Needle smocking plate.


One year I planned to make matching Thanksgiving outfits for the children.  The Viyella brown plaid garments were made but before I began the bibs, plans changed and the older two would not be with us that day. So I decided to use the garments for Christmas.  But that was a stretch—brown plaid for Christmas.  I made it work.

These Current Critters embroidery designs are so charming. Continue reading

Brother-Sister Wiggles Outfits


My precious daughter-in-law really likes brother-sister outfits for Robert and Laurel.  So for their birthdays, I usually make themed, matching clothes.

Since their birthdays are only 15 months apart, their interests are not so unlike as to make that a problem, at least not until 4 yo Robert’s Spiderman party. But that’s  another story, another post.
