You can see the shadow of a dimple here on sweet Sarah; it is usually much more evident. Honestly, this is the smilingest baby we have ever seen! I tried to get the side of the bonnet, but she is NOT going to look the other way if there is someone close by who will talk to her or play.
I renewed my love of heirloom sewing with this little project; I took a class with Carol at the Atlanta Sewing Center and it was a wonderful way to learn about my new machine and make a sweet bonnet at the same time. I have always thought that one advantage of sewing with such beautiful laces, trims and fabrics is the fact that mistakes are much less evident. Contrary to popular belief, it is a very forgiving method of sewing.
It seems that Issa was the only bonnet baby in my gaggle of girls; the others always wanted to rip them off and stuff them in their mouths. And if this afternoon at my house is any indication, Sarah is going to agree with Katelyn and Mae!
