From this. . . to this

Yesterday, D2 asked me to make a smaller version of a "onsie" she had. Her tiny baby doesn't fit into the little blessing outfit she had picked 7 months ago. How was she to know she would have such a teeny tiny baby?

So I bought a new plain onsie and tried my best to sort of copy the original. She wanted a "ruffle butt" on the new one. She also wanted to keep the other one in tact, since the skirt that goes with it is so large we will have to safety pin it in the back. So by the time she grows into the larger shirt, the skirt should fit as well.
So I took a picture of a baby doll, modeling the little finished onsie. It is much cuter on the real baby, I am sure. I need a better looking baby doll to model my things, doncha think?

Parables don't always translate across the gender lines. I was thinking about what a cute job you did on the little onesie, and the thought that it was like the touch of the master's hand with the old violin, but then went to correct my self and say no, it is like the touch of the mistress' hand.... but that would take us too far afield in other areas. So what I would like to say, is that it looks really nice, and I am a great admirer of your sewing talent. Love you much.

Oh, I can't wait for the day when I get to make stuff for my grandbabies! This is so cute! You did a great job.

(is it OK that I'm a little envious of you with all those adorable grandbabies?)
