For the Love of Crafts

For the Love of Crafts

Done for the February 2022 Occasions & Themes Challenge #1

Journaling reads: I love all things crafty! When my girls were small I made a lot of their clothes. The older they got, however, the more they hated mom making their clothes. So, eventually I stopped sewing, for the most part. But, guess who likes my sewing when they need something.....like some scrubs for the “Community Helper Day” at school?! But, this mom is always happy to help out! Little Abby wanted to dress up like a veterinarian. So I went shopping for some cute material and a pattern and went to work. She was the cutest little veterinarian ever, if I do say so myself!

I used a photo of the material and lowered the opacity so the paper by Anna would show through somewhat.

Oh this is wonderful! Love the scrubs! And you even made her a vet bag :) Nice job using the fabric in the background!
Nicely done composition. The photos are great and what a cutey. I bet she felt really special. I had the same experience with my daughter. Sewed everything up until grade 2 then it wasn't so special then. The only thing I sewed after that were her Synchro competition swimming suits.
This is great! Love that you get to use your sewing skills on this. What a fun little "vet" you have there. Lots to love on this page. Great title work...and your granddaughter is such a cutie pie! Glad that you were able to put your craftiness to good use! Great take on this challenge.
I too used to make clothes for my kids and they did complain about having to wear them. But then I was not good at sewing LOL. Great page and love how you showcased your creations!
What a brilliant job Vicky, not only on your sewing skills but your layout as well! So glad you scrapped this delightful memory and you have done it so beautifully! I did a bit of sewing for my daughter when she was little but it was mainly her dancing/ballet costumes at the end of year concerts etc.
What a wonderful outfit you've created with the matching bag! She looks adorable. This page is a perfect way to remember the day.
