    Your work is beautiful! I have gained much respect for those that crochet with thread.

    For my granddaughter's baptism April 2018, I crocheted her christening gown and will most likely not make another!!!Question on 100% thread or yarn-madalyn-christening-gown-final-jpg

    Thank you for the complement, I like the dress you made for your granddaughter and thanks for sharing it with us.

    That dress is lovely and the baby is adorable. That took a lot of work and lots of love. Did you design it yourself?

    I like those kinds of dresses my daughter had both of her girls in very beautiful dresses but very slippery. I almost dropped my oldest granddaughter she was squirming so much I ended with her upside down holding her by one leg. She wasn't hurt and I was scared to death. The dress had so many layers of lace and satin and other material I couldn't find the baby to hold her she kept slipping.

    Thank you! It was a free pattern, but yes lots of love and prayers went into that dress.

    Those gowns are tricky to hold a baby in to say the least! Glad you held on to yours.

    Thank you! I replied yesterday with the free pattern link, but it didn't post. The pattern is Red Heart Heirloom Baby Set.

    I'm so glad you were able to hold on to the baby!

    Spoula and Momto8 - your thread work is fantastic! I can't speak to the cone yarn/thread, although I have been very tempted to try those too. I have worked with South Maid 100% mercerized cotton a lot tho, and it softens after you wash it. But does it soften enough to wear it comfortably? I couldn't answer that. All I know is that I've certainly seen enough garments made from it, so one could assume it can't be that scratchy. I did have a 100% cotton sweater at one time, but it ended up stretching out of shape and it went to Goodwill, so I've never bought another one nor would I make one. It's cotton blends for me!

    Hello Nova55, Thanks, I have Made several items including bikinis for my older grandaughters out of cotton thread.

    The picture of the Purple dress I posted was from Hobby Lobby it was Artiste
    100% mercerized cotton size 10 (small) it held the shape I wanted for the ruffles and it was soft. I starched the Hat.The Bikini's I made with Aunt Lidia's fashion crochet thread I think it was either a size 3 or 5 thread (it was also small but not as small as the #10). I can't remember for sure. I lined the items didn't want them to show too much. I also asked them to take a shower first to see if they would shrink or stretch. Ha didn't want them to get embarrassed on the beach or at the pool.

    I like cotton blends also. I have seen many videos in Spanish where these ladies use these huge rolls of thread some look like they have glitter in them and their dresses are beautiful. Now that the 3 year old is getting taller it takes more yarn or thread to make her something so that is why I was looking at that cone one. I think I will stick to what I have used before as I know how it works up.

    Hope you are doing fine and you got moved in and settled.
