Remember how I said I would take some pictures of the things I got out of the storage box in this post? Well I have finally taken them.
My son’s wife is due to have their first baby next month and Nick (my son) knew I had his teddy from when he was a baby packed away and asked if I could send it to him as he wanted to show his wife (Tara).
So that prompted me to dig around and find it amongst all the other baby things I had packed away. Nick is 37 and so this teddy isn't young and almost a vintage one….I think something has to be 40 years old to be classed as vintage. Anyway along with this darling teddy was this very much played with teddy.
He is missing his eyes and was rather shabby and I wasn't game enough to wash him like I did the blue one, so will leave him ‘as is’. Although I think he should have new eyes tho.
I washed the little dresses I sewed for my daughter Zoei, that I had packed away too. I kept a few of the clothes my baby's wore as mementos.
These ones I sewed ‘smocking’ on them and I taught myself how to sew clothes and smocking from books, so I was pretty proud to have done these for my baby girl. Zoei is now 30 so these little dresses are not new either.
So that is a couple of the dresses I did and will show you more another time.
I sewed quite a lot back then and even sewed some clothes for a friend who had a daughter two weeks after I had Zoei.
Loved it then and love it now …..nothing much has changed hehehe.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and it’s Father’s Day here in Australia on Sunday. So hugs to all the Dads!
Hugs to all……
