They're cute! I would never have thought to pair them with those striped shirts but it looks really cute and fun together.

Do you girls really never get excited over clothes you make? I'm totally going to give you unsolicited advice because it sounds like that's disappointing for you, and I know it would be for me. Have you tried letting them help design, pick the fabric, cut, etc? My son is 3 and he is really excited to help me make clothes for his sister. He doesn't actually accomplish anything but he doesn't really know that. Maybe it's just because he's so excited about the "sowin' sheens," as he calls them. That might be more of a boy thing! I used to be a teacher and I'm used to always letting kids "help" with adult activities. It's fun for them and it keeps them busy while you work. I always try to find some small "job" that they can do, even if it's just cutting scraps apart, sorting and counting buttons, folding what's left after I cut out the patterns, etc. Oh, and, I don't know how old your oldest daughter is, but I started on the sewing machine at 5 or 6, sewing rectangular "sleeping bags" for my dolls.

Thanks Smiley!
 know, the striped shirts are pretty random underneath Cheesy,  but they do look fun, we`re lately into the Bullerby stile- mismatched and colorful Smiley


I actually have let them pick out some things - like the appliques and buttons Smiley> Just recently i`ve noticed the older one is starting to like homemade things more and is kind of proud to give homemade gifts to her friends (cute)- i guess her friends and their moms have commented how pretty the things are and how cool, that they`re made by us.

and she`s 5,5 so i probably should let her try the machine, she`d love that, thanks for pointing it out Smiley
