    I just became the grandmother of a beautiful baby girl! I used to sew all the time, making my daughter's clothes when she was little. I am going to be making some of her clothes and was just curious to see how many other people would be interested in having dresses, etc, made for their children, grandkids, or just for a gift.

    I am not going to charge outrageous prices, but thought it might be an good way to make some extra money.

    Send a private message if interested. Thanks!

    I think you should take some photos of your granddaughter or other little girls in your family "modeling" the clothes you have for sale--that would help generate more interest than just words on the page.

    Creating a line of "inexpensive/one size" items such as "tropical/Florida-theme" bibs or blankets might be a good start.

    Good luck. It's great to see people thinking about how to put their skills to work making some extra cash.

    Awwww..congrats, FB. My grandmother always sewed my dresses when I was a little girl (wow--that was a long time ago!:eek:). It's a special memory to me to this day.

    How beautiful! (the baby AND the dress) She's lucky to have a Grandma that sews. I have a 6 mo old and I'm always looking forward to the next outfit my mother's going to make for her. Good luck!
