The theme this week over at Project Run and Play is "Sewing Through the Decades".
It's a theme I could go crazy over. (In fact, I've started a project from the 60's that I've been using some of my precious vintage polyester for...but it's not quite finished yet....)
Anyways I wanted to make a little something to play along with the week so I pulled out a pattern I bought before baby Ruth was born but that I haven't tried yet.
It's one of Simplicity's reproduction patterns from the year 1952. I love it. All the baby items are so clean and simple. I had a hard time choosing which one to make. Finally I decided on the slip.
The clothing on the patterns all have been emroidered and some with little angel babies on them. I liked the idea but decided that I wanted to embroider my own angel baby on the slip. So I traced Ruth's silhouette from our Disneyland trip onto the bottom corner and then embroidered that image.
Like I said earlier I love the simplicity of these vintage designs.
Besides the design I also find all white baby clothing absolutley irresistable.
And speaking of irresistable...it's time for me to share my chubby little secret....
4 months ago Ruth was born, Elizabeth came to the hospital and took some photos and since then I've been keeping her all to myself...no photos...no posts...just me smooching her all day and not sharing.
Can you blame me?
I think she is just the greatest. Baby Ruth...my chubby little secret.
Now if you'll excuse me---she's up, and it's time to play again.
