Where have I been in this past week...well somewhere around my sewing machine. I was busy making these cute little dresses I really couldn’t help myself but keep making them 😁 It’s brought me so much of my childhood memories Happy joys and sadness...I completely forgot how much I love to play with the doll and how I wish I can have all the beautiful clothes for my doll but that’s not what happened to me When I was 4-5 years old I did remember I was playing with the doll My first one... it’s Look so old but  I didn’t mind playing with it though. I don’t remember how I get that doll but I’m sure Happy, I play with it all the time. I wrapped it with the towel or my shirt trying to make something for her  I didn’t have any dress for my doll, My Mom is a GREAT MOM but she doesn't sew and she works all the time  😔  One day my neighbor made me a doll dress, Can you imagine how happy I am?  The dress color is brown and simple. I still remember that feeling I’m so happy I feel so lucky ...My first doll dress even passed more than 30 years...but Happiness is still there in my memories nobody knows about it, Nobody can take that away from me ...But eventually I forgot about it And Last week I clean up my fabric shelves Trying to create something from fabric I don’t want anymore... I ended up making a cute little dress the blue one



Then...the memories of that doll with the brown dress “Pop UP”  in my head!!!

 And I can’t n stop thinking about it! 

At that time I want to make her a dress so badly but I’m just a little girl. 

 I can’t change what happened ... but I can sew now! 

Pretty good sewing skills actually 😉 

So... I made all of these dresses for myself poor little girl and her little doll in the past!

From now on  I will keep making dresses all types of clothes 

 because it’s made me very happy 

And it reminds me of who I used to be  how far I have become...

I’m not that poor little girl anymore

I’m hoping one day in the future  and

with the right time and the right girl 

I will give one of these dresses to Some Lucky girls!

Because I know how much one little brown dress can change a girl's life 

And now this blue dress will be a part of my Life

Be  another story to tell to my kids and  my friends 

How much I enjoyed making dolls clothes...

How I connected the missing dots from my childhood to this Moment of my Life 

Be a Wife of a very Loving Husband...and...Mother of 4 beautiful kids 



 


A few days ago, I asked my Dad if he remember my doll with the brown dress. 

And he found this picture of me 

Aww... I’m so little ☺️ and Look at that smile on my face!


 



UPDATE 5/1/19


A week ago I discover this Amazing Library located about 15 min drive from my home.

Over here besides books, DVDs, boardgame you also could borrow 18" dolls with shoes and other Dolls items to bring home with you. It warmed my heart and I felt thankful for whoever created this program to make a lot of little girls Happy. I know some libraries had lending the American Girl Historic Doll Collection program but I think many girls just want to play with dolls it doesn't have to be expensive or anything related to history just dolls with some dresses is good enough...so this is just perfect! at least for me to donate my doll clothes that I made



 

many Clothes are old


 

Here are the 3 dresses and 3 coats I made and donated to the library 😊



Thanks for stopping by

and allowing me to share a little of my passion

I Hope You Have a nice day!

And don't forget to Do more of what makes you happy!

HAPPY BANKKY / CRAFTY MOM
