When you make something, please take a picture

I wish I had done this when I started sewing and crafting. That was so long ago I would have had to use one of those cameras on the tri-pod where you look into it and cover you head with a drape.  You know what I’m talking about?  Well, anyway I’ve made about everything thing there is to make and every now and then I remember something I made years ago and wish I had taken a picture. (okay, a few things I’d like to forget) I made the cutest Raggedy Ann dress for my little girl. All I remembered was it was 3-D. It had red yarn hair on the front of the dress. Thanks to the internet and vintage patterns I found it the other day and bought it to make for my little granddaughters. I had forgotten it was a pocket on the front of the dress.

Cute, huh? I found it here. But you can find it by googleing Raggedy Ann Pocket Dress.

It was a vintage 1970 McCall’s pattern. Did you notice the price?  What happened to the cost of patterns?  Now days I can’t even afford to buy a pattern. It’s cheaper to buy the dress.

    That is darling! Yes, I wish I’d taken pics of all I’d made. Even if I had to use film to do it, lol. I gave most of my stuff away when I made it so I don’t remember anything!
