My brother Daniel found this fabric while cleaning out my parents' basement and it brought back so many memories! These scraps are left over from the Cabbage Patch doll clothes my mom made for me one Christmas. I remember being so impressed by the fact that she was able to make REAL clothes (albeit in miniature) using fabric and a sewing machine. She made a fur coat, which she lined, and a Hawaiian mumu, among other things. So cool! I think that was the first time I got excited about sewing - seeing that I could possibly make something even better than the things in the store made me excited to learn more. I'm hoping Daniel keeps cleaning and finds the actual doll clothes she made - they were so cute!
