I've mentioned my "adopted" grandkids before and this past Saturday I got a chance to babysit for 2 of the 3 sisters - the oldest sister and the new baby. The oldest is 8 and she wanted me to sew something for her. This is what we came up with. I used a halter dress pattern and changed it to make a shirt with a pair of elastic waist shorts. She was pleased and I thought it looked cute on her. We also made a couple of fleece blankets for her little sisters. She loves bringing home gifts for her family.
Here she is with he new baby sister who is only 6 weeks old.
