Fun Monday #19, Being Crafty

A long time ago, in a Galaxy far far away: I sewed. I had to come up with something because I didn't want to get left behind on Fun Monday.

This is Kar-2-D-2 and Queen aPamilana. (You may have already seen the "Where are they now" special.)





I haven't sewn anything but buttons on shirts in years. My sewing machine is probably an antique.

Please visit Karmyn at Dreaming What If's and check out some Real Crafty People.

And - May The Force Be With You.

All I can say is that you better keep moving or people will try to put their plates on you.

You owe Karmyn an apology for that.

Robin said…
Are those dresses? or nightgowns? And is that an escape ladder in the background?

I'm impressed, but I'm not sure why ;).
Karmyn R said…
Thanks WT - I've been waiting for years for an "I'm sorry I made you wear that hideous green dress"...but have never gotten one. (hee hee)

Wolfbaby: kindnes!!!

WT: I bet I got a good deal on the material.

Robin: I think it was a wedding reception in a youth hall. The other option is it really was Star Wars, and we were thrown in the garbage bin because of our dresses... and that was our means of escape. Hans Sewlo, come to my rescue.

Karmyn: Yeah, I'm sorry. But you just wait until buttercup see's some of the pictures you have of her.

tlawwife: Finally -- someone who understands.

Little girls always want to look like their moms-even if they regret it later. It's kind of cute and I'm sure it was a very fashionable look at the time.

Pamela , May the 4th be with you too. The dresses look superbly crafted. I am sure you two were the hit of the party.

I loved my mother daughter dress when I was a kid. Although mine was not gingham, I'll say that for it. ;)
Hootin'Anni said…
Oh my.....the fashions we used to think were 'hot'!! But, I love the fact that they're matching outfits!! That is SEW cool!!

Mine's shared.

Oh - that's so sweet! You little seamstress you! Though you may have put away your sewing machine, it's good you picked up a paintbrush;) One girl can only have so many talents, you know!
Debs said…
Thanks for letting me know about this Fun Monday. :)

I can remember my mom making us matching dresses.

One year on a family vacation, she made me, her, and my little sister all matching shirts. Talk about annoying. *LOL*

Somewhere there's a table that is minus its table cloth!!!!

Well, you have to take it in the context of the time period. Very cute for the 70s/Holly Hobby look. I still love Holly Hobby.
Amy W said…
Cute! I think my daughter would kill me if I tried to wear matching clothes with her.

My town had a centennial celebration when I was little. My mom made my sister and I matching dresses that looked very similar to yours. I loved it. I don't ever remember matching my mom though.
Matt said…
You know you can buy clothes. The Chinese keep getting better and better at textiles. No kidding.
I love it - so many memories just flooded back to my mind. Now it's hard to remember when material was cheaper than store bought clothes!

Hugs,
Holly

Joy T. said…
Sorry but I'm dying laughing at Willowtrees comment LOLOL But just ignore him, because there's nothing cuter than mother-daughter matching 'anything'!

People might put their plates on you - OR draw you like a curtain, lol.

Seriously though -- where is the photo of the last button you sewed?!
Kila said…
Suddenly I want a daughter ;)

Very precious.
Whippersnapper said…
Uh, wow! Play that funky music, white girl!!

Actually, you look incredibly beautiful in that dress. Do you still have it?
lisa's chaos said…
OMG, we have a similar photo of my mom and I! She made most of my dresses - aren't you glad we don't wear those anymore?
Little Miss Moi said…
Dear pamela - how cute! I love the mum and daughter matching outfits. Or are you just using the jedi mind trick on us?
Shelby said…

I used to sew once too. I gave it up for Lent.
