Lavender Blue Diddle Diddle

This skirt is one of a kind, made up completely of vintage linens. A beautiful vintage hanky scallops along the top in the front and the back. Sophie is a size 5 and it fits her perfectly. It would look great with leggings under it for the fall weather also!

One of a kind skirts

This skirt is made up of Amy Butler fabric and vintage linen pieces. Sophie is a size 5 and it fits her, but I would say it is more a 3/4. I love the orange polka dots with the robin egg blue vintage hanky. It has an elastic waist band for easy dressing. I started with a vintage pillowcase underneath, so it is a completely lined skirt making it great for upcoming cool weather.

Stationary Sets

A friend of mine had a bridal shower to attend this weekend and wanted to make something special for the bride to be. We created this set, and I thought it turned out too cute not to post. I had so much fun making it too!! Riley is the bride to be's new last name...obviously. I used my favorite stamp on some. It says "my favorite person in town" I would love to make more, I think I'm going to make some for the upcoming festivals and shows.

Monogrammed gift sets

Monogramming is huge right now for boys or girls. This is a set custom created for a customer that has a new little one on her gift list. These would also be great done in a unisex fabric with the family's last initial on it, for those of us that can wait to find out the sex! The set includes an embellished onesie, a chenille burpcloth and an embellished chenille bib. The letters are available in black or white and hold up to multiple washings.

Putting it all out on the line...

Okay, so I'm trying to work through my stash of fabric and make things from what I have. I started yesterday, and this is what I've got so far. Basically these are one of a kind since most of it was just odds and ends, but some I have more of. I love how they turned out and the great thing I love about these is that now they wear leggings under about anything so it makes them any season! These are sizes 3 and 5, and are listed in my Etsy store. Right now I am making them in sizes 3-8. As you can see I had to pay the model one! HA! Good help doesn't come cheap!

Starting out...

I thought I would never do this, but here goes. I've been thinking about doing this for awhile now, but like many things...thats as far as it went. If it goes further than this post, I dont know, but this far was coming a long way! I plan on posting pictures of my many creations and plans for more. I thought it would give me a goal to work towards, as far as sewing and posting every...well...lets just say more often!
