Joe's mawmaw passed away last March and this pillowcase was something I picked out of her things. I have a weakness for vintage pillowcases, this time I'm glad I do. I used her pillowcase and sewing notions that my grandma had given to me several years ago, so all of the dress came from sentiments of both her greatgrandmas.
I didn't even realize until I was sewing the dress that the pillowcase had been stitched up by Mawmaw, some machine stitches and some hand stitches. So special and just like her and my grandma both to really make something last and save things that today's generation of people, including myself, would discard and replace. I have no doubt they would both be happy to see Laynee in this special little dress. It has made me very happy seeing her wearing it.
super cute video to prove this on my IG. She tries to sing along whenever there is music and bounces.
I'm not sure if I talked about this on the blog, but she smells things. Especially when she is sleepy she smells our clothes and definitely her blanket when we put her to bed. I thought is was crazy when I realized she was doing this several months ago.
ittle 15 second video on IG is exactly what she did for 15 minutes.
