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, 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!


  1. I love those letters! Did you just use mod podge?

  2. You left a comment on my daughters blog saying your computer crashed and you lost all your embroidery files. They should be able to be recovered by anyone who is knowledgeable with computers. My son has saved many a file off crashed computers. Good Luck.

  3. Oh thank you so much for the information. My grandpa just told me that today. He said we need to take it somewhere. Definitely going to try. I was so upset gosh. I don't have as many as yall do, but I have accumulated a nice collection that I would be very sad to lose!!! Did you guys get your embroidery machine fixed? Hope so!!
