My mom worked as a dress maker and taught me how to sew.
Sewing holes in paper for hours til I got the hang of it. Then learning
how to guide the fabric. Step by step I learned the basics. She was always
encouraging. “You never know when you might need to know this” she
would say. I don’t know if I ever made anything more than a bag
as a child, but I do remember feeling proud when I mastered each step.
Sewing became, a fun pasttime for me as an adult, and I enjoyed making
dresses for my daughter and pyjamas for the kids. Thanks Mom for
sharing your talent.

    This is such a sweet page.  Your photo is precious and I enjoyed your heartfelt journaling.   Your embellishment cluster is lovely and perfect for your page.    Beautiful work and layout.  :)

    This is such a pretty layout. Your story is so nice. This seems as though the memory is special and how kind of your mom to share her talent with you. I love the background papers and the fabric swatches sewn to your background is perfect. Beautiful!

    What a wonderful way to give your mom credit for teaching you how to sew--your LO is a great tribute. And good for you to make clothes for your daughter and pjs too. I enjoyed sewing and then quilting--learned that from my grandma and mom--I want to get back to quilting for my younger kids. your embellishments are such a perfect fit. Thanks for sharing this!

    Thank you so much! I had no idea this forum even existed, I really like the idea and will definitely be looking for layouts that need a little lovin'. We all work so hard on our pages it is nice to get a little hug for a job well done!
