Late 2009 - Flannel Nightie

And yet another item that I did not take a picture of!

Nearly 30 years ago I made myself some flannel jamies from a big bold pink and turquoise fabric.  It must have had some polyester in it, as it was lighter in weight than any 100% cotton flannel I have ever seen.

I had kept the scraps, and decided to make my "pink" granddaughter a winter nightie from it.  She gets hot at night, so lighter weight is a good thing.

2009 - Shoebox Dollies

Shoeboxes this Christmas carry the theme "pink", in honor of our Princess (and also so I wouldn't have to re-thread my serger!)

Two dollies in pink with stars that sparkle

The trim is silver metallic ribbon.

I serged both edges of narrow strips of fabric, applied the silver metallic ribbon as trim, and gathered for the back of the diaper/panties.
