Christmas Inspiration


Need some ideas for Christmas sewing for your little one?  I pulled together some illustrations of outfits that only need a bit of embroidery to make them holiday appropriate. And to make things easy, we even have a holly embroidery design on the "Free Stuff" page!

Smocked Snowmen

Smocked Snowmen

I love snowmen because they are suitable well past the holidays.  “Jolly Snowmen” by Mollie Jane Taylor has been one of my favorite smocking designs for years and is super cute on our Jon-Jon pattern #137 made from black Featherwale corduroy.  And here is a little smocking tip. […]

Blue Eyed Boy

 

Dear, Creations by Michie’
Pattern #111 was perfect for a special garment to be worn to an outdoor wedding in August. The occasion provided me with a “dress rehearsal” for sewing a Christening bubble later this fall.
The fabric is cotton satin batiste in baby blue, trimmed with Swiss beading, both from Farmhouse Fabrics. The little bluebird machine embroidery design is from Martha Pullen’s Kent State Museum Collection, disk 1, stitched in DMC Broder cotton machine embroidery thread in variegated baby blue. I think the color is perfect with this sweet little one’s blue eyes!  Photos by Penny Layne Photography in Omaha, NE.

My name is Roberta Beaver and I used The Tucked Infant Gown #108. Breath taking!  We love what Roberta did with the daygown pattern.   And the trim makes it so elegant. ∼ Michie’

Okay, I’m in love with this Christmas Tree Swiss Edging!  As the holidays approach I don’t always have time for a labor intense dress and this dress proves that you can have awesome without handwork or smocking.  I used pattern #146, featherwale corduroy and made a slight variation […]
