My little one insisted that Bebe have a Christmas dress. Bebe is too small to wear hand-me-downs and the store-bought dress that would fit her is too expensive.


Bebe's new Christmas dress.

 I had been looking for a use for an old friend -- a piece of material that began its life as a bed sheet sometime in the 1980's, was reincarnated into a pillowcase for a body pillow and a Christmas tree skirt, and was now too ragged even to become a dish towel.

 
The pllowcase in its ragged glory.


Bebe's small size allowed me to cut from the parts of the cloth that were still good. I did not use a pattern-- the idea was to produce the dress before my child got bored with the project. She held down the sewing machine petal and did some of the basing stitches. Bebe was carried triumphantly (upside-down) through the grocery in her new dress as soon as we were done.
