Ruffled Hibiscus

I love this hibiscus ruffled dress... made to order for Olivia's first birthday.  The colors are bright and springy, but still sweet and girly. I know she will be a big hit in this at her party!

Riley's Dolphin

Out of all the cool designs I have, Riley wanted a dolphin for his t-shirt the other day.  He was decisive about it.  So, I was determined to make it the most manly boy dolphin ever.  lol  I made his body with a  blue plaid fabric and royal blue belly.  Turns out, Riley had a matching pair of plaid shorts.... I love it when things work out like that!  Very cool and very boyish for sure.  :)

Spring Things

There are so many adorable shirts and dresses this time of year that are just "begging" to be embroidered and personalized!  They make great gifts, too!  Here are some of my latest:

John Deere Boy

This cute little jon jon was made for a baby shower gift.  The boy's parents have named their tractor "The Burley Express" so they wanted the jon jon to reflect that.  I'm sure the baby will stay cool and look cool in his romper.  :)

Mollie's Dress

This is Mollie's dress to match her brother for Easter.  Classic pillowcase dress with initial and name embroidery.  Fabric ties instead of ribbons.  I think it's so cute for spring!

Who-whoooo loves owls??

My sister and I wanted to do something different for our girls' Thanksgiving outfits this year. I found this adorable Timeless Treasures owl fabric and set out to make "owl outfits" in lieu of turkey outfits. It was my first attempt to make a skirt (or anything else for that matter) without a pattern and was actually pretty easy. I was pleased with how the skirts came out. As for the owl applique, that was done by hand with wonder under and a zig zag stitch on the sewing machine. ANYONE can do this! If you are inspired, e-mail me and I'll give you directions on how to do it yourself! Who-whooooo will be the cutest girls at Thanksgiving this year? I happen to think it will be my three favorite little girls in the whole world. ;)

Pumpkin Patchwork

I love these Pumpkin Patch dresses, inspired by the well-known K's Kids children's embroidered line of clothing. These dresses feature 3 pumpkin appliques on blue gingham, robin's egg blue ribbon across the empire waist, and initials in Curlz across the chest. Perfect for October and November... visiting the pumpkin patch, Sunday morning, a weekend at Grandma's, or Thanksgiving dinner.
