Q&A with gdub

Caraline2 asked:
ohmy golly, I had a swim suit like that, while that looks for a little girl. I cant still see it, and because all the other girls had bought swimmers, and I was the only one with a handmade one I hated it. Therefore my girls always had store bought ones. This is in no way belittling your work, it looks well made
gdub answered:
none taken. i think homemade is the only way to go. i don't like wearing what everyone else is wearing. not original.
maggiesc asked:
Very cute! And I love the Lamp shade it is hanging from, did you make that and if so please tell me how
gdub answered:
thanks. the lamp shade was the very first thing i did with my machine! didn't even know what a backstitch was at the time. i just cut my strips of fabric the sizes needed, stitched up the sides & use my hot glue gun to attach to lamp shade.
K Lee 2Strings asked:
Wow! So adorable! You did a super job of recreating this pattern. Many, many years ago I had a yellow playsuit that looked exactly like this and my baby sister had a white one with red trim. Both are captured in a photo.
gdub answered:
