Patchwork Cross Shirts

Newest addition!
Patchwork cross shirts!
These shirts are so fun for me to make and very fun to wear!
I take lots of different fabrics and create a patchwork cross. Each one is different! No two will be just alike! They are also adorned with hot fix crystals giving them just a touch of bling. After washing the edges will fray just a bit giving it just a touch of worn effect. These shirts are $40 and available in S, M, L, XL. Very soft shirts in Black or Brown

A few fun things to share!

My poor blog has not seen me in awhile!
Thought I would share a couple recent things!

First this is a sports bottle I made for our neighbor for his birthday. He is a baseball nut! We gave him this and several packages of baseball cards.
This is a 1st birthday set I made for another little neighbor friend.

A pic from the summer....

I forgot I hadn't shared this adorable picture of my two girls! While we were in the DFW area for our vacation I took them to the American Girl Store for lunch and a little shopping!

I made them and their dolls matching outfits. They looked so cute eating lunch with their dolls next to them.

Fun Cross Shirt

I love shirts with crosses on them!
I was recently inspired to create this fun cross shirt from "some" of the fabrics I have on hand! :)
If you notice there are no two fabric "patches" alike on this!
It is accented with a few swavorski crystals to give that little touch of bling!
I have gotten comliments on it just about every time I have worn it! Let me know if you would be interested in ordering one of these unique shirts, I can promise that no two will be alike!

Pocket size tissue holder

I have made quite a few of these little pocket tissue holders lately! These help keep your purse/pocket size packs of tissues neat and tidy and clean! These make great little gifts, especially paired with a matching key fob! My girls each have one in their backpacks. I also found some little packs of anti-bacterial wipes that will fit in the cases too!

Finally made a couple of things for myself!

I was inspired by Aimee's post on her blog sewsensible last week! She posted a top (her post is here) that she had made for herself and I thought I should really make something for myself! She doesn't have a pattern for it, but I am hoping she releases one soon! (I already have some fabric picked out to make it too!)
I found a pattern somewhere else that I thought was cute and got busy! It reminded me of when I was in college and I would stay up half the night to make something so I could wear it the next day! This really didn't take long to sew up I just had other distractions that night!
I am stalking Aimee's blog to hopefully see one day that she is ready to release that pattern! :)
Here are pics of the tops I made: (disclaimer that my 11 yr old took these photos with my phone so the quality is not superb )

Pic heavy post to catch up!!!!

Hello friends!! I hope everyone is having a GREAT summer!!! It has been incredibly busy at our house the last few weeks. We had all the usual end of year activities, then I jumped right into getting VBS decorations done. That was a lot of fun and I will have a better idea what we will need for next year!
Here are a few of the things I have been working on lately!

This was a towel for our little neighbor for her birthday. The top scoop is actually lime green and the pink is brighter IRL.Another towel for a friend's birthday! This is my favorite gift to give during the summer! This was the first 3D embroider I had done. Love the 3D flowers on this one!A cute little birthday cake for our neighbor that turned 5!I made these travel mugs for teacher/bus driver gifts. I ended up making I think 10 of these for my 2 girls teachers and their bus driver and then some for a friend for their teachers.A couple personalized key fobs for gifts.A personalized sunglass/glasses holder. This has padding and will hold large sunglasses!A golf towel for a friend for her dad for Father's Day! I have also done this design on a burp cloth.A couple of kitchen towels I did for my SIL for her newly re-done kitchen!!
As always if you see something on my blog that you like and would like to have made just for you, send me an email!!!

NEW Camera strap!!!

Just finished this yummy camera strap and listed it in my etsy shop!

I have been wanting to try the minky for awhile and just had not taken the plunge! I had someone on etsy recently contact me about making them a strap with minky so thought now was as good a time as any!!!

I ABSOLUTELY love the way minky feels, it is so very soft!

Summer is right around the corner.....

...well if you're in Texas it feels like it already is! I have made several beach/pool towels for my girls to give as gifts and a few as orders for friends to give as gifts also. This is such a cute and fun gift to give. I think the surfin' monkey is just TOO cute!!

Baby Girl Cuteness!!!!

My cousin is having her baby shower on Sunday. I can't go but thought I could get something in the mail to my aunt so she could take it for me. So I made these cute little ensembles today! I so wish I had made stuff like this for my sweet girls! (Or I just wish mine weren't growing so fast!!!)
