    Thanks for sharing! I was just thinking today how it is interesting to see how much my interests have kind of grown and changed since I learned to sew- which is not nearly as long as you!

    Also, those jeans are adorable!

    You satin stitched those appliques on those little jeans? Wow, I'm totally impressed. Just thinking of maneuverability…

    And thanks for insight into you. Love it.

    Great story–and those clothes are so adorable, no wonder you were making 100s! Maybe one day you'll put your adorable appliques into a book for the rest of us!

    I have always wondered why "Little Miss Shabby", so now I'm happy to know the story. Such a great story too! I think it's so cool to learn that you used to make such adorable custom outfits. I can see why you would get burned out, but it sounds fun. I adore that strawberry shortcake outfit!

    I remember your listings on ebay…they were some of my favorites (along with some great designers/seamstresses like Sweet Feet Boutique, Ritchie*Rags, Kirsten's Kreations, Mamapatrice, ect). Does that date me? When my dd was small I was into the boutique clothing as well but when they get a bit bigger it's more fun to sew something that will last longer than a couple months — at least they can't 'grow out of' a quilt! LOL
