Aren't they gorgeous? It's hard to see in these pictures--far away, little hand camera--but the applique and hand-embroidery is just as beautiful as the piecing and the color choices.
There was more though (this is, after all, the TEXAS State Fair).
Clothes for Barbies--which reminded me of the clothes my own grandmother used to sew for my dolls--and other dolls.
These are older dolls that have new clothes or have been restored. I have several of this kind of china-head doll from my maternal grandmother.
These shelves are full of jars of preserves, jellies, jams, pickles, and so forth--and there was another set of them to the right.
But these were my favorites: handmade children's clothing.
The bodice is smocked and embroided (chickens to match the fabric print). Gorgeous.
