Vestment Set for Children

I just made this with an old sewing machine I picked up at a thrift store.  I am always on the hunt for antique sewing machines - you can sometimes find them in used clothing stores.  The older machines are the better machines and last forever.  Every Catholic family ought to have a good sewing machine under its roof.  Sewing is an excellent hobby for both boys and girls.  My mother taught me to sew on a 1960s machine when I was just a boy.  It is a terrific skill to own.  The materials for the vestments I picked up in Fatima, Portugal.  The blue silk is permitted to the Latin Rite clergy of Spain and her colonies for special Marian feasts.  My next project is a tabernacle veil.
