Therapy~
Chenille Jackets

Many of the activities I do in life,
are like therapy for me...
sewing is definitely one of them!
When my daughter Jessie was born in 2001,
she recieved a little chenille jacket as a baby gift.
Every where we went, she'd get compliments on how
cute she was and how "adorable" her jacket was.
After much enjoyment from the jacket my daughter received,
I was inspired to make them for other precious little girls.
I've been working simultaneously on several chenille
jackets made of vintage bedspreads I've purchased over time.
Only about 4 jackets can be made from one bedspread,
so no two are exactly alike. I pour my "Heart and Soul"
into them as a "Thank You" to God for Him
being the ultimate Creator and blessing me with a variety of talents (sewing, one of them).
He has blessed me, so I can bless others.
I call my handmade creations,
"Heart and Soul Creations" (Luke 10:27).
So far I've only made these jackets in little girl sizes
"S" (6-12 mo); "M" (18 mo-24 mo); "L" (2T-4T)
and I give them as gifts.

This jacket is a surprise gift for my little niece in Oregon.
I also made this same jacket in a size smaller for a
Bible study friend who is having her 3rd child (first daughter!)

The jacket is beautiful and how kind of you to make them for others.

Stunning piece of work! And not the kind of chenille I thought you meant - absolutely beautiful and I'm sure it'll be a delightful gift to receive.
