    Such adorable pictures you add to our days of your happy grandchildren.
    That emoji fabric made an adorable gown. I had requests for super heroes fabric for masks so that is always popular. Think I used mine up already.
    I have some gowns cut out and should get them sewn up in next couple of days. Could you kindly send me the address to where to mail them to?
    Have a good day Bernie.

    Your granddaughters are precious. Like you, my grandchildren live far away. Thank heavens for face time and photos.
    I have been making the hospital gowns for Amy’s dolls since your first posting. She is very appreciative.
    What a wonderful ministry she is doing.

      I totally agree – FaceTime makes it much more bearable. I sure hope I get to see them this summer tho.
      Thank you for continuing to support A Doll Like Me. Amy is very grateful and so am I!!!

    Thanks, Bernie, for the highlight! I have to say, of the gowns I made, that emoji one is my favorite. I bought that fabric for a different project that never materialized (pun intended), so it was great to be able to use it. I really wanted to make two, but try as I might, I couldn’t eke out a second one. This is a good gathering of little gowns for Amy. I love the superhero fabric!

      All in good time Kathleen. Amy will receive a stack now and I am sure she will be appreciative if more come down the road a bit. Go look for that bias tape maker!! 😉

    Very cute gowns, Bernie. I just saw that Amy will be a case study in a new book, too. I think I might need a bunny myself! Stuffed animals and dolls are so good for trauma, a little one or a big one. The girls are adorable, as always! How do babies get to be so chunky? They don’t even eat cookies! It is the one time in your life when those extra chins are extra cute!

      I think that too Mari – She gets nothing but breastmilk and she is just roly-poly. Nature is amazing. The kids are amazing too!!

      Thank you Helen!! My grand daughter keeps saying “Oh we can go (here or there) after all the germs are gone.” It is such a strange concept for them to grasp but she is trying. I remember when it was Easter she was so excited the Easter Bunny came to her house, even “when there was germs”. Silly girl. 🙂

    I just sent off a batch last week! I have several containers of bias tape, and it’s so satisfying to use FQs and the bias tape to make this quick projects!
