Gift Tote

Here are the pictures from the gift basket I was telling you about.  Anne is one of those fun (and trusting!) people who basically said, "Here's my stuff!  Do whatever you want!"  I love that!  The second I saw the picture frame she was going to put in the tote, I knew exactly what fabric I wanted to use.  I think it turned out great, and I hope little Sam (and, let's be honest here, his mommy) will love it.

What's in a Name?

I'm loving all the kids items you can get with your child's name on it these days!  Clothing is no exception, and I'm having a blast embroidering names on everything from tote bags to t-shirts.  I recently received an order for a personalized market tote, a t-shirt, and a lovey.  Anne is filling the market tote will all sorts of personalized goodies for a friend who's having a baby - what a great idea!  When I finish the project later this week, I will certainly post pictures, but for now, here's one I did for my own little stinker.

Summer, Summer, Summer-time!

Ok, so the post title doesn't quite work for mid-February, but a girl can dream, right?  I don't know about you, but I am Over the snow with a capital "O."  So, it was nice to dream about the summer while I was embroidering these beach towels for Rhonda.  And, I was thinking that these would make such a great birthday present for the little person in your life.  Save a mom's den from toy-clutter and give her child something they will use again and again. :)  Here's to some warm weather in the coming months!

Sibling Shirts

Allison had me make these shirts for her kids to wear on Spring Break.  I love finding fonts and colors that work for both boys and girls!  I laughed when she said she was going to hide them until then so that her kids wouldn't spill anything on them between now and Spring Break...hope the pictures turn out great, Allison!
