More Sewing for Shelby...

 I just never get tired of sewing for my sweet Shelby. I've been trying to use up some fabrics I've had in my stash for a while. I have to say, I've done pretty good! At least pretty good for an old Mimi. LOL
  I had prayed for a little granddaughter to sew for ever since my own kids grew up. Then a year after Shelby was born, I found out I had tongue cancer, and I had that dreadful surgery. So I lost out on several months of sewing. About the time I really got started back, I had to have shoulder surgery. Another setback...Plus it didn't help, and I still have problems with that shoulder. I can only raise my left arm to a certain point.
  I'm not one to give up, and I was determined to keep sewing, and I have. It's not always comfortable, but I manage. It's my joy and my thereapy!
  I bought this pink pique poodle fabric when Shelby was a baby, and I'd always intended to use the Children's Corner Callie pattern so that's exactly what I did!
I made pants and bloomers so she could get more wear from the outfit. 
And of course, I had to add a pic of the princess wearing her dress. Her mom wants to find some cute shoes to go with this, but Shelby would much rather be wearing flip flops. At least we talked her into the silver sandals - this time!

The lovelies call my mom Mimi and she sewed for them from the day the first one was born. They had matching outfits on all holidays; she made their prom dresses; and Breezy's wedding gown! The lovelies enjoy designing their dresses and Mimi makes them. It's been one of the most memorable things for them all! So we know how absolutely wonderful this is!
