More About Gaby Shearer and the Baby Mine Brand, (in her own words): I began sewing at the young age of 6 on my mom’s sewing machine. When I turned 8, she rewarded me with my very first Barbie doll patterns, many of which I still have! I purchased my first sewing machine – an old Singer Treadle – as a newlywed. It was then that I started creating doll clothes and altering patterns to fit Madame Alexander dolls. I didn’t have kids of my own yet so gave them away to others who could use them. I was soon blessed with 2 daughters and had a ball creating party dresses, play clothes and Halloween costumes. I’m now happily retired and thoroughly enjoy my rekindled love of sewing and creating doll clothes. Publishing my patterns is just an added bonus. The real blessing comes when I get to see all of the amazing outfits created with the use of my patterns!
