New TOP - Harlowe

I saw the pattern for the Harlowe Top at the end of LAST summer and could not wait to make it. As I'm gearing up to sew for spring and summer, I thought it was the perfect time to try it.....especially when I found this fabric:)

It's back to late nights of sewing at my house as I keep finding new patterns to try! I LOVE sewing! If you even think you "might" want to sew...GIVE IT A TRY!!! I bet you'll love it!

COST: $17.00
Sizes: 18/24mo, 2T, 3T, 4T, and 5T



Let's call her Stella:) Basically I just need a name so that when someone emails me I can easily figure out what top they are referring to.

I can't take credit for the idea for this top. A great customer of mine asked me if I could make a similar top she had for her daughter....so I went in search of a pattern...and after a couple of adjustments here is the final product.

I made my first Stella top and shorts for EmK. I tried to get her to model the outfit, but apparently it's traumatic to try on new clothes (or it is for my daughter). I hated to post a picture of her in tears so for now I'll continue to just take pictures without my cute model:)

Sizes*: 3-8
Price: $15.00

*they have smaller sizes (3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24mo) if your interested and the bottoms would be bloomers



Over the weekend I finished these shirts for a customer in Nebraska. Didn't she send me the CUTEST shirts to applique?!?! I LOVE:) how they turned out.


Birthday Outfit

I LOVE this fabric! It's a favorite I have for this spring. I have several coordinating fabrics and plan to make a cute top when I get a little free time.

Happy 4th Birthday M!!


Baby Gift

I just finished this order for a baby gift. I've made several bubbles this year and it gets me excited for spring every time:)


Shorts with POCKETS

You can now add pockets to pants or shorts for $2.00. I should have done this a long time ago....I think the pockets are SO cute. You can either do coordinating fabrics (as shown) or the same print. The possibilities are endless!


Back to Sewing

Here are a few things I made this week. This week was a little crazy for us! EmK turned 2 this week (wow it's gone by fast)....Jordan and I have the flu and hoping EmK doesn't get it...AND I start teaching tomorrow at Jeff State (I'm teaching Math and Algebra if you are curious).

Ruffle Pants and Shorts - size 3

Natalie Dress - size 4


It's Already Been a Year

I can't believe a new year is here....2011! For some reason I thought I launched my blog in January 2010 and planned to try to write this on the one year mark, but I'm too late as I started this blog on December 19th.


- God for allowing to find my "gift" and using it to help inspire other people or help others along the way. I have learned SO much this last year and I'm excited to see all that you have in store for me. I never thought this hobby would be so big....BUT I know you are in the business of doing more than we could ever dream or imagine.

- To my husband, for never complaining about hearing my machine in the late night hours and for always making such a BIG deal about everything I make even when it's something you've seen many times;).....you are always so encouraging and I love you very much!

- Mom, I THANK you for encouraging me to sew....you had the idea for this business even before I did:) Thank you for buying me my VERY own sewing machine...AND thanks for splurging the extra $100 for those quick buttons I thought I could pass on....b/c I really do LOVE them.

- To my mother-in-law for giving me a sewing/embroidery machine so that I can monogram and applique the clothes I make. AMAZING! You are such a talented seamstress....thanks for teaching me so many techniques.

- To my sister and close friends that receive texts/emails/calls from me when I have a new idea or just need a second opinion...I THANK you!! I treasure each of you.

- To those of you who have allowed me to sew for you...or who read my blog...or who pass my name on to someone you think would like to see my work, I THANK you!!!! This hobby truly makes me SEW HAPPY!

Now for the BEST part....until the end of January receive 15% off anything you purchase as my THANK YOU for such a great year!!!

P.S. I have already started on some spring stuff:) I have a couple of NEW patterns...and will soon be adding POCKETS for boy pants/shorts....exciting right?!?!
