Thanks Amanda!

I'm so looking forward to sewing with my daughter when she grows up...this must be so much fun.

Thank you for stopping by!

Amanda Bartsch on August 19, 2013:

I absolutely ADORE sewing for baby girls... So wish I could dress my 13 yr old baby girl still in these fashions !!! But at least she loves to sew along with me- thank you for your time spent in collecting and sharing with us all... I certainly appreciate (and "take in") any moments possible I can spend with her. We've actually created a sewing class for my daughters "groupies" - revamped the playroom into a new Studio and have since started collecting used, older machines for each girl to be able to sew on ! (My husband says it really looks like I'm running a sweat-shop, lol !) Sewing had sort of become a lost art for younger generations... Incredibly happy to see its popularity booming !!!
