Virtual Refrigerator




Last week the girls and I learned how to do counterchange smocking. The lady who planned the lesson donated a bag full of fabric and notions for Heather's #100dresses project. This precious pink gingham was just one of the prints that our friend shared, and we thought using that technique with her fabric on the dresses was a great plan. Heather made three more dresses today, and as soon as the counterchange smocking is completed they will be done, too, three more toward her #100dresses goal!

  1. This is lovely. My mom used to smock the gingham in aprons she would make...also some of our dresses! I haven't seen this done for a while...so glad you brought back a sweet memory!

  2. How pretty!! My aunt used to put smocking on the annual Christmas nightgowns she made for her great nieces - it must have been a lot of work!

    1. How sweet. One of my great aunts always made us crocheted slippers for Christmas. I've never had any since that fit so perfectly.

    1. Chareen, Often much of what is taught in those classes challenges me. I was able to do this fairly easily. I'll look for a link to share with you.
