Sew what

Back in the day I used to do quite a bit of sewing. When my daughter was little I made lots of clothes for her. I also did  some crafty type sewing.

A couple of my Christmas sewing projects were a gingerbread girl and a how to make a snowman banner.
The pattern I bought for this was for a girl and a boy. It took me forever to finish the girl and I never did get around to making the boy. I do still have the pattern so who knows, maybe some day I'll make her a boyfriend.

She's held up pretty good over the years

This hasn't come out in a couple of years for some reason but this year it's out and hanging on the bathroom wall. It's also held up pretty well.
Both of these projects were done maybe 20 years ago. Possibly even longer

Old memories can be the best. We were discussing themes we had used over the years last night.

The only word that comes to mind has already been over but I'm going to say it anyway wow! I really like the little gingerbread girl she's adorable. I have always wanted to say that the few times I tried it I ended up just what I was making and a temper tantrum

They are awesome! And oh my gosh, the gingerbread girl is just adorable!!! Everything about her is perfect!! I love the pattern and color of her clothes, too. And the snowman, this could be left out all winter, not just at Christmas. It is great!
