Gingerbear Smocking

Hello Everyone,  I hope you had a good weekend.  Mine was restful – I actually took a nap after church on Sunday!  I guess I have been pushing myself a little too hard in the past few weeks.   But I did get my Twilight Trails Quilt finish.  It is already on its way to the editor’s desk.  I will have some pictures for you later this week.

You know I have a knack for getting carried away!  Such is my Christmas dresses project for baby.  I am attempting to improvise on a pattern that involves picture smocking.  I have never done picture smocking in my life, and I am a little uncertain – but I shall try my best.  Don’t you just love the gingerbread fabric?

You also know of my clumsy sewing skills.  And of course I have never attempted to improvise on a pattern either, but I got carried away.  I hope this crazy scheme of mine would work out, and I can actually have something to show for by the end of the week.  Wish me luck.  Meanwhile, this is what (Gingerbear by Little Memories) I am hoping to smock to go on this little outfit for baby:

I wish you a happy and productive Monday!  Thank you for stopping by.

  1. I’ve never seen or heard of picture smocking but if anyone can do it, you can! The fabric is adorable, as is the teddy bear picture you’re going to smock.

  2. How cute. There is also an old issue of Sew Beautiful with three little gingerbread men in a row that would be cute with that fabric. I thought I would share a tip that I learned years ago for picture smocking. Separate each thread individually before loading your needle and the stitches will be fuller.

    Good luck and have fun :)
