Sewing For Granddaughters

Time to sew for 3  granddaughter and I really went all in.  I did some batch sewing and cutting, followed by using my coverstitch machine for all the hemming.  I did the hemming in colors and some knit garments are done in more of a coordinating thread. 

Here are the garments for the 6 month old granddaughter.

My granddaughters are all cousins, two are 3  and one is 6 months.  I did more this round for the girls who are 3, the baby will change sizes so quickly I didn't want to make too much.

Here are the garments and close-ups for T granddaughter

All the fabric came from a purchases I made in January this year but never really got around to sewing much of it.  I went to my stash for myself and was reminded of all these knits.  As I was looking and admiring, I thought I better get right to sewing this or they will be too old for it and then what will I do.  So out it came and the patterns and I went to cutting.  I cut for H granddaughter and then with the smaller pieces went for baby and then did all the cutting for T granddaughter.  I made piles and tried to keep it straight!  

All together there are 26 garments,  11 leggings, 2 dresses, 11 tops and 2 sweatshirts. The girls are all cousins, 2 of them are 3 and one is 6 months.  I used all Brindille & Twig patterns - Raglan Sweatshirt, Raglan tee, Leggings, Ringer Tee (which is free), T-shirt dress, Flutter Sweatshirt. Dress - I did it shirt length and with jersey knit

Garments for H granddaughter

The only modification I made on any pattern was to add a peplum to the raglan tee several times.  I cut the t-shirts 3 inches shorter, cut a 4" strip measuring twice the bottom t-shirt width.  Then I gathered the top and attached the peplum to the t-shirt.

The fabrics for all these garments  came from these sites

Jumping June Textiles - striped  ribbing with metallic on the navy sweatshirt 

And I believe the heart fabric and star fabric came from Joann.

  4. My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.

  6. Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has not ruled out Saul Niguez leaving the La Liga champions ahead of the transfer deadline.

    Chelsea have reportedly tabled a loan offer, with an option to buy, which hasn’t been accepted by Atletico, but after holding talks with the player, Simeone said he could not guarantee that the Spaniard would stay:

    “We talked to him, I told him what I think and feel. There is not much else. Between now and Tuesday, we’ll see. We know that anything can happen in football.”

    Manchester United and Liverpool have also been linked with Niguez this summer but the Blues are thought to be the only team that have made an official bid for the 26-year-old.

    It seems as though Atletico want an obligation to buy in any loan deal and that looks to be the major sticking point in negotiations currently.

    There is no sign that a compromise will be reached before the transfer window closes tomorrow but, as Simeone points out himself, there could be a few twists and turns over the next day or so.

  7. I feel so blessed again in my marriage after PRIEST OSAS brought back my husband that separated with me for good 3 months. ANNY ROBERT by name from California. Even though I have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank PRIEST OSAS for his help in my life. My husband separated with me for 3 months and has been in pain and agony without him. So, I searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until I meant PRIEST OSAS who I contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 to 48 hours so that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when PRIEST OSAS said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him... Email: or WhatsApp him : +1(419)359-4367
