Trish writes... " The idea for this book started right here, from these journal pages about making something special for my girls. I was a new mom to identical twin girls, and although I hadn’t reallysewn many garments before (okay, maybe one), I decided I wanted to sew the dresses for their holy baptism. I wanted to make them myself because I so strongly desired to start creating special keepsakes for both my girls, something that they would give to their kids. And that’s been my heart’s desire when it comes to sewing most everything—to make something special for someone that I love so very much."
I absolutely adore her heart... there really is something special about making something for someone(s) that you love...
There are so many projects in the book that I still want to create, but because time is something that I have so little of these days, I stuck with one of the projects that seemed fairly quick, totally adorable and perfect for my little girls, the Girl's Bow Headband. Instead of using a Goody's fabric covered headband, I went with a Goody's elastic headband... simply for the fact that Marley easily pulls off anything this is just a band, and Charlotte needs the least amount of things behind her ears, because she has her glasses and hearing aids there already.
I asked Charlotte to help me pick out fabric scraps from my bin... and here's what we created:
The girls have had a ton of fun wearing these headbands, and I'll be making many more in my future, especially for birthday gifts for their friends. My favorite part was watching Charlotte's eyes light up when she saw them completed... to see that smile... there's nothing greater.
