    Wow! I'm definitely impressed. The only sewing I have done was in middle school. I made a lovely bag. :D

    Although I truly have no time for it any longer, I once thoroughly enjoyed sewing. Now I'm lucky if I can get a button put back on a shirt.

    You've shared some lovely photos! You do beautiful work. Thank you for letting us have a glimpse!

    Those are gorgeous, Sally!

    I sew, but only adult stuff for the past 20 years or so. I really enjoy it, but a crazy work schedule limits the time available for things I enjoy.

    The "girls" (my cousin's daughters) decided they only wanted designer label clothing beginning about age 12, so I haven't had young ones to sew for until recently. Abi (the younger "girl's" daughter) is 16 months now, so I'll probably begin sewing a few things for her this summer. Eric (the older "girl's" son) is three, but his mom is still in designer label mode.

    Seriously doubt I'll make anything as creative as you--they aren't into Disney--but I'll have a bit of fun before Abi grows up too much!

    Edited to add:

    Love the "inspired by" customs, Sally! They're adorable and more practical than the elaborate costumes so many people make. Gorgeous, just not always practical! :)

    ho my gawd Sally honey those are beautiful!!

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    I am terrible at sewing If it has a hole in it.....I throw it out. As for making costumes as wonderful as those in your photos....forget it.

    I do however cross stitch when the mood takes me.

    Ah but Issy, your cross stitch creations are pure artistry! You should show some to Sally! I know she'd agree and love to see them! (Me too... :D :D :D ).
