My First Sewing Creation
This is a somewhat blurry photo of the first garment I ever sewed and actually wore. My grandmother helped my cousin and me make these halter tops when we were about 9 and 10 years old. I wore this to school as often as my mom could get it laundered because I was so proud of it. It is completely hand stitched. Of course, the only stitching to it is all around the clean finished edges and the bias binding for the neck and tie..
I am a grandmommma who loves to sew. I also love any creative outlet that I can express myself in, such as painting, drawing, sherenshnitte, and writing. I am the "baby girl" of my mother who is in a nursing home. I wish I could get into her head to understand what is going on in there sometimes. I will reflect upon my observations, therefore, using this as a therapy of sorts for myself.
