I love sewing for people I know. At the same time, it’s a little intimidating. What if they don’t like it? What if it doesn’t meet their standards?

I’m thrilled that two friends have asked me to create outfits for their respective daughters’ birthdays. It’s such an honor, being invited to have something I made be a part of their family histories.  Plus it gives me a chance to play with something else I’ve been working on:

    I know just what you mean. Seeing a pattern or having an idea pop into your head for a specific person…stitching it up…wrapping it…and worrying if it’s perfect enough to give OR will they even like it?

    Yes I agree. Sewing for other people is intimidating and rewarding. It’s awesome to have someone ask for something specifically. That way you know it’s wanted.

    Wow, I just ADORE that crown. Did you create the pattern? I’d love to make one for my daughter’s birthday next week.

    Oh, I just love it! At what age are we “too old” to wear crowns exactly?
