I can empathize with these situations, I've sewn things for people and they've just said "oh, thanks" and put it down without acknowledging that it's handmade and a lot of work has gone into it. it's just polite to say "that's lovely thank you" and look at it all over!

Or ask how they did i or ask where they learned to do it. At least start a little bit of conversation about it!

This was made from a dress I wore alot last year before I lost weight
The elastic in the straps came from a skirt that she had outgrown and the thread was free from my mother in law so free all round!  Cheesy

so cute! did you use a pattern?
I just traced around a dress that's too small for her now.
The top is just a rectangle with a curved top edge and the skirt is just two very wide triangles.
Oh yeah and the back top panel is shirred.

glad people like it  Cheesy

Gotta love Adam  Grin
Brilliant, I only wish I had the patience to do something as intricate as needlecrafts.

Just finished this dress for my little girl. please excuse the blur...good old camera phones eh?

I really don't like the straps. Not sure how to change them though, because I'm awful at getting sleeves the same width

My mother in law is a borderline obsessvie perfectionist. So when my daughter was tiny and she used to knit and crochet lots of blankets and clothes for her i used to sit there and pick all of the thousands of hairs out of the item in front of her. Really wound her up haha

Oh gosh that's a horrible thing to do!

I had an incident last christmas where my I made decorated sweetie jars for two family members (they both had personal details and favourite sweets in them) My "grandmother" just looked at it as though i'd given her dog waste in a jar and very quickly put it down and moved on to the very expensive bottle of wine my sister bought for her. whereas my auntie LOVED it! Made cakes with the sweets on them and kept thanking me over and over. We also gave her salt dough decorations (made by my two year old) and she just couldn't get enough of them.

Some people are just spoilt and will never understand how something made is far better than something bought.

Not 100% sure this is the right area to put this but looked closer to other things here than anywhere else.
I was left with lots of red/black and pink bits. So I thought I'd make a huge pillow for my little girl. As a guide to size the stuffing is placed inside a XL men's t-shirt inside the pillow case.

Sorry about my little girl being half in front of it! She has become slightly possessive of it ha ha
