Hello everyone it’s Connie! I am the youngest of four girls and the CUTEST. I LOVE saying that because I know my sister’s hate hearing that, but it’s true! Well I just had to share with you this GREAT sewing job I did on my grand-daughter’s jammies, I LOVE sewing, I get that from my mom! Today I am sharing with you something I made for one of my grand-daughter’s, her Birthday is right around the corner.

When I buy patterns for the kiddos, they usually come in size 1-4, of 6-12, whatever….

once you cut size 3 out, you can no longer use the pattern for any size larger.  So, I trace my patterns.   Like this adorable pair of summer jammies for Miss Eden whose birthday is coming up….

I cut around the piece I need, iron it smooth….

Then I take white tissue paper, iron that smooth and place it over the pattern, and trace it….

I made sure that the fabric was super light cotton.  The summer in Wisconsin can be unbearably hot.This pair of jammies, reminds me of the clothes I wore in the 60’s, in WI, in the the summer!

I did some detailing, the stamp on back of shorts, the rose on the front, and the back loop.
I’m excited about my youngest grandchild, turning 2 on April 9.
It’s only going to happen once in a life time……

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EDEN!

LOVE, GRAMMY BEAR
