I am no longer selling my creations to the general public. I am taking a break from making my items for sell and am enjoying making them again at my own time and leisure. I will still be posting items that I have made for friends, family and myself but I am not taking anymore customer orders. Sorry for the inconvenience! Thanks to all of my loyal customers who bought from me in the past. I had a lot of fun creating unique embroidery items for you!

Baby Shower FUN!

My sister-in-law had a Baby Shower on Saturday and I was so excited to make some baby girl things for her! Girly stuff is my favorite to make, because I LOVE all things pink and frilly!

The finished projects

Cherie applique font from http://www.jolsonsdesigns.com/. This site is fabulous. All of their fonts are ONLY $3.00 each!

Resort font from http://www.8clawsandapaw.com/ . I tried something different by adding a ruffle to the bottom of the burp rag.

Love font and Curlz font. I have had these fonts for a LONG time so I am not sure where they came from.

Minky dot bib (my design) and burp cloth with Girls are weird font. The name Ava was a freebie from http://www.sewforum.com/. For the burp rag I sewed the minky dot fabric down the center of the burp rag for a boutique look.
Cherie applique font from http://www.jolsonsdesigns.com/. Again, home of the $3.00 fonts!
Same font as above, but just wanted to add these onesies came from the Dollar Tree! What a fabulous find for $1.00. They are constructed well for one buck and come in all colors and sizes.Since Baby Ava will be here before Christmas she has to have a Baby's First Chirstmas onesie to take a picture in!! Can't remember where the design is from, but as soon as I find it I will post it.

A fun way to trade!

A recently came across an add on craigslist where a lady who sells Mary Kay makeup was wanting to trade makeup for handmade items (bows, clothes, etc.). I use Mary Kay makeup and thought it sounded like a fun idea. Mary Kay makeup is not cheap if bought at full price, so I figured I could embroider some items for her and I would get my make-up for a fraction of the cost. Today we met at McDonalds and swaped items. It was such a fun way to trade items. I got my makeup and she got some cute embroidered items! (By the way, I looked the lady up on the Mary Kay website before I aggreed to the deal, she was a reputable Mary Kay seller.)

Boys R Gross font with football applique from http://www.sewforum.com/.
Minky dot blanket with Carmen font from http://www.8clawsandapaw.com/.
Pillowcase dress with fluttersleeves pattern from www.pinchingyourpennies.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88150
The only thing I changed was the size of the sleeves. I cut out a 4 1/2in by 9 1/2in rectangle for each sleeve before hemmed and ruffled the bottom material before attaching.
