Birthday Dress for Sarah. May 23, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — What It All Comes Down To @ 9:31 am

I found this embroidered pillowcase at Goodwill a while back.  It made me feel sad to see it hanging there, thinking about the someone who spent their time and energy sewing the sweet flowers on their pillowcase.  Who was this person?  Where did they live?  How come it ended up as a Goodwill donation? 

I turned it into Sarah’s first birthday dress.  A little shaping, some elastic strategically placed, and a bias tape binding to match the crocheted edge.  Bloomers to match, of course.

Sorry, bad photo of the embroidery.  Camera is having issues.
