Sew I can...

I can't speak a foreign language...

I can't sing a note (i do try)...

I can't dance either (i've been compared to Elaine from Seinfeld)...

what i can do is,

 i can sew

people are amazed with my hidden talent

i usually get "youuuuuu can sew???"....

i think they feel this way because of that singing thingy

by no means would i consider myself a professional sewer

my specialty has always been making Halloween costumes...

no costumes this year...

Sew, this is what i did...

my new little granddaughter Chloe
is being Christened this weekend

 and i made her dress!

i was browsing this site and fell in love with
their Christening gowns...

i knew i could make an heirloom gown just for Chloe

i spent this past week doing what i do best ~ sewing!

modeling right after i finished
i was so fearful she wouldn't fit into it...
but it fit her perfectly!

all i have left to do is her
headband and bib...

 the church gave the parents
a bib that will be put on the babies after they
are baptized...

this is the bib they gave out...
i don't think so...
i didn't spend the past week making a dress
to put a piece of cotton cut out with pinking shears
over that dress!

i can't dance and i can't sing...but i can sew!

Have a great weekend!


  1. The gown is very lovely, as well as the baby wearing it. I'm sure one day she'll appreciate the work and love you put into this as she passes it down to her children.

    I don't blame you about the bib. If it's what you are describing, I wouldn't want it to hide the pretty gown you made either!

  2. Oh that is amazing Marcy..just beautiful. I can't sing, I can't sew, I can't craft, but I CAN spray paint!!~:) Have a great weekend. Debbie

    Beautiful baby and beautiful gown! She'll be the best dressed little girl on Sunday.

  4. Omg, The gown for cloe is absolutely gorgeous I wish so much we could of been there You have always been a very talented person from making bears to stain glass and everything else you have done in your life ( and forgot to teach Da ) We love you and miss you and will hopefully see you soon think it's time everyone takes a family road trip and spread your talent in Michigan. Zach needs a weatherman costume (Lol) Love ya!

  5. Ok...Marcy, I have literally known you my ENTIRE life and NEVER knew you could sew!!!

    You keep this hidden talent of yours very well hidden!

    I absolutely love the dress and Chole just looks adorable in it! I can't wait to meet her.

  6. That is amazing! You did a wonderful job and she's so precious in it!
