After G1 (my oldest daughter) was born, we knew we wanted to have more children, so I saved all her old clothes. We had two boys after her, and then almost nine years later, another girl. With the age gap, I managed to forget most of G1’s clothes. Luckily, ten-year-old baby clothes are usually fine. Larger sizes will probably be a bit more dated. When I open boxes, sometimes I wonder “Why did I bother to save that?” Some things I am sure G1 didn’t even wear. Other times I get little surprises like things that I made for G1 that I forgot about. It’s nice if I find something that I made and I still like it. It’s even better if G2 likes it.
Here is a vest that I made about ten years ago. Now it’s getting another chance to be worn.
It is machine appliqué, with fusible web and satin stitch. I used a commercial pattern for the vest, but just drew the appliqué.
I think it’s pretty cute.
