Christmas Presents and More

It is the day after Christmas! Woohoo, I made it! I actually still have a couple of little things to work on...for people I haven't seen yet...haha. We had such a wonderful Christmas with our families. I love them all dearly and am so very blessed to have everyone in my life that I do. So I made a ton of Christmas towels on top of the ones I've already posted, but they are all fairly similar. I don't really think I should keep posting pictures of them. I have plenty of other neat things I've made the past few days! Thank goodness we were in Austin. I would have never been able to get it all done. Thankfully I have a terrific mother and grandmother to help with my rowdy little girls =). I made these wine bags for different members of my family for Christmas presents. I LOVED how they came out. In fact, I told my mom they are one of my favorites so far. I looked up a ton of different directions on how to make them, and then I just kind of did what I thought? I have two more to finish up for friends. Here are the three I did this week. Aren't they adorable? Wine bags are $20.00. You tell me the color scheme and letter. If paying on my blog, there is a $2.00 charge for paypal. I really think they make a perfect gift!







 One of my cousins in Kansas wanted me to make her daughter Madison a birthday outfit. Madison loves Dora so this is what I came up with. Of course, I forgot to take a picture of the bow. It totally completes the outfit! I really am happy with the Dora outfit. I think it will look adorable on her!
I guess I could really do any sort of character set that I could find fabric of for a birthday or just a special set. They have a ton of different fabric choices for all of the Disney characters. This was really the only Dora I saw though. And they had it everywhere I went. JoAnne's, Hobby Lobby, and Wal Mart.
I finished the pink and green tutu set for my friend Crystal. It is so cute.The set is $40.00 and can be in any two colors that you like! The flower applique is from Lynniepinnie. I tried to get Lily to model the outfit, so you could get the full effect, but...you see how well that turned out...haha.









This is an almost complete project. Zach's cousin has twin girls, Camryn and Chloe. I am making letters for their room. I got Camryn's done this week (except for putting the ribbon on to hang them by). The colors came out absolutely beautiful! I can't wait to do Chloe's. I also did some last month that I guess I never posted pictures of. I really thought I put pictures up, but I guess not. I just looked back through and couldn't find them. So here they are too. Custom letters are $12.00 each. I can do any color/theme!

I forgot about the Christmas Market

I forgot to put up the pictures I took of our booth at the Christmas Market. I was really proud of our booth. Crystal and Leslie's wreaths were gorgeous! Check out their blog, they really have some adorable things. I thought my clothes were cute too! Anyway, like I said, I was super proud of our booth. However, the One Minute Manicure lady next to us was the one with all the business! Isn't that crazy. We hardly sold anything. Thank goodness some people had ordered some of the things I had made so they didn't all go to waste.

Busy busy, but here are some new pictures!


We're in Austin this weekend. I have been able to get SO much more done than usual! My mom and grandma are such an enormous help. So anyway, I basically have not one thing fully completed. I do have a lot of pictures of "almost" finished projects! I feel accomplished. I still have so much more to do before Tuesday though! My niece wanted a rainbow tutu outfit for her Christmas present. I decided to add a little leopard and think its adorable. The heart font on the shirt is from Lynniepinnie. I am still going to put a leopard bow on her tutu and then make a combination of leopard and the colors for her hair bow. I know it is a little wild. But I love it! I think she will too. If you are interested in this set it is $50.00. This includes a tutu, bow, and shirt. I know that it is more than I usually charge for a set, but there are so many colors that it costs more to make it.Then I got two out of the four bags I need to get done made. They are really cute. I used the vintage font on both of the bags from swakembroidery.com. They are both for little boys. I guess you could tell that without me letting you know, but I'm a little tired and not all there...haha. The bags are $22.00 as usual, with a name. I can do whatever colors/theme you like. The "S" shirt is going to go with a pink and green tutu and bow. That set is $40.00 with a two colored tutu. One of my friends ordered it from me for a friend's daughter. I love the flower. It is from Lynniepinnie. I hadn't used it yet and now I can't wait to make one for Faith and Lily! Last but now least are the Christmas towels I made for my Granny. She was so happy with them. The hohoho file was from Lynniepinnie and the Gingergirl from swakembroidery.com. I don't really see a reason to put a button on for the towels...Christmas is in four days. I couldn't make anymore in time if anyone wanted them. But for next year, they are 10.00 each! Or two for $18.00. Everything purchased on my blog has a $2.00 charge added in for paypal.







 






 
Hopefully I will have a few more pictures tomorrow! I should also have the completed outfits that go with this blog! Now off to go eat lunch and sew some more. Oh, and I have to finish addressing out Christmas cards...yes I know, very late this year.

It's Official

I am the WORST blogger ever right now. I can't keep up. I've been staying up late finishing projects and such and by the time I am done I just fall asleep. I haven't had time to put any new pictures or blog at all the past couple of weeks! This will only have a couple of pictures too, but I had to put up something new. I was so busy preparing for the Christmas Market (that turned out awful by the way). It was freezing and raining ALL day. So here are the towels I did for part of Faith's presents for her teachers. I loved every single one!
 
 
Faith's teacher ordered a birthday shirt from me for her little girl Molly. Here it is. Birthday shirts are $20.00 with a name and number. You pick the colors. Paypal charge of $2.00 is added at check out.








I will try my very hardest to blog again tomorrow with more pictures! I have done so many other things and have forgotten to take pictures. I hate when that happens! But for now, these will do. Everyone have a wonderful Thursday!

Bag , Dress, and Stocking


I got quite a bit more than this done this past week, but of course, I forgot to take pictures! Anyway, I really loved the way this bag came out for my niece! The bag is $22.00 with a name as before. The fairy file was from bunnycup.com and the font from 8 Claw and a Paw. I also made this little dress for Faith last night. I kept going back and forth about putting something on it. What do you think? I know it is plain, but with her denim jacket I think it looks cute! I have a goal set for everyday this week. Let's hope I reach them! Here are a couple of pictures. I hope to be on tomorrow with pictures again!

One Week Later!


Wow, this past week has been so busy! We had Thanksgiving in Magnolia, then Round Top, and last in Austin. I am so thankful to have such an amazing family. It was so great to see everyone! Now I have quite a list of things I need to get done. Here are a couple I have done so far this week. I've been getting a ton of Christmas tutu set orders. I've also gotten quite a few regular tutu set orders! Yay for Holidays! I am working on letters for our little twin cousins Camryn and Chloe. I am also doing burp cloths for them. I got Chloe's done tonight and love it! The embroidery file is from Lynnie Pinnie. It came out so cute!


I had an order for a "T" shirt and a matching bow. I was really pleased with this outcome too! The "T" is from the Spunky font at Lynnie Pinnie and the shirt is from Old Navy. The shirt is 15.00 and you pick the color scheme/letter. Bow is 8.00 as usual. Add $2.00 to everything for Paypal, or feel free to mail me a check!














I also got another Christmas TuTu set done. I got this little Gingergirl on Swakembroidery.com by Band to Bow and the shirt is from Old Navy as usual. I really love this one. It is the first green and white striped shirt I've done because I was unsure about it, but I love it! The set is $40.00 with a tutu, shirt, and bow.








Last but not least...isn't this the most adorable stocking ever? It is definitely my favorite stocking yet. I wish I could make our actual stockings look like this! I got the stocking off of Swak by Kimberbell Kids. Shirt from Old Navy. This is just another of the many Christmas bows I have been trying to get done!
Oh and take a look at the dent I am making in my Christmas bow list. Woohoo! Bows are $8.00!

Thanksgiving Week

Well this week has been super busy! I did get a couple of things done. I finished baby Gavin's blanket. He is in the NICU and will be for a while so I wanted to make him something really bright and cheerful to help keep his spirits up. This project ended up being MUCH harder than I had anticipated. After several attempts, here is the outcome. I think its adorable!
I also got the girl's Thanksgiving shirts done, just in the nick of time, ha! I think they came out cute though =). 

We are leaving today to begin our week long celebration! Yay for vacation. Will blog again on Monday as I won't have my sewing machine to get anything done while I am in Austin. However, I do have three orders to finish up next week so there will be lots of new pictures! And I HAVE to start our stockings!
