A Stitch in Time (tag #3)

Okay, here is the last tag! I love this project because it has a little story....a young girl is imagining wearing the new dress her mom is making her for a special occasion. The pattern, tape measure, and button cards are just a few of the supplies needed to complete the cute little dress.
I remember the anticipation as my mother labored each Spring to make three matching Easter dresses for my sisters and myself. I followed in her footsteps and for many years made Easter outfits (not matching) for myself and my four daughters. The sentiment "handmade just for you" expresses the love that went into sewing those dresses each and every year!
The photo doesn't capture how cute those litttle button cards turned out. I stamped the card on glossy cardstock and used pearl and blingie brads for the buttons....


  1. LOVE IT! I always looked forward to my Easter dress hand made by you. I remember endless hours as a little girl sitting at your feet and listening to the hum of the sewing machine. To this day, the sound soothes me. Too bad I can't add sewing to my list of talents! Just makes me appreciate your skills more!

  2. It's so Pretty Mom!! Allie is right, the sound of the sewing machine whirring away is embedded in my childhood memories. I just love this tag!!

  3. I really liked this tag. And the photo looks great!
