This CUTENESS is why I haven't been blogging!









This is my 4 month old granddaughter, Isla (Eye-La) Rose. Our first granddaughter and we have been having so much fun with her. My daughter asked me to make a sun-suit for her 4 month professional pictures. She found a pattern on Etsy and picked out the fabric.
 I have been sewing for 49 years...since I was 8, but have not made a baby outfit since I had my kids.

Here is Isla in this outfit, in all her cute chubbyness!

My daughter made the headband with the leftover fabric. I taught her to sew even though she didn't want to learn as a teen and now it is coming in useful for her. She makes her own curtains and pillows and now things for Isla too.
 This last one needs a caption because of the pose and the look on Isla's face...
Maybe, "I told Mommy it's time to go see Grandma!"

  1. Oh, what a little doll! I don't blame you. If you get time to spend with a little one, do it! The grandchildren are why we sold our house in Texas and moved to upstate New York so we could be close to them. Now you did a beautiful job on the little sunsuit. Love the little ruffles! She's a doll and what a pretty name.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
