Deluxe Baby Burp Cloths - Marquette University

These burp cloths were a special request from an expectant mother in Maryland - get this - she is giving them to her husband for Father's Day! How sweet is that?! They are Marquette University themed - which obviously her husband loves and is known for basketball. Don't you just LOVE their baby's name - Cullan! LOVE IT!

The fabric was sewn on and then gros-grain ribbon was sewn around and then the embroidery was done - they turned out great!
Stacked and wrapped and ready to make their way to Maryland!

Girls Birthday Shirt and First Birthday Onesie

Custom Baby Bloomers and Deluxe Burp Cloth Set

I absolutely LOVE this burp cloth - I almost wanted to keep it! This is a sweet little set for a baby shower or newborn gift! I also have the bloomers in sizes newborn to 3 years old.

'Baby Boy Bouquet' Shower Gift

Everything you see here is what went into this bouquet:
Gerber super soft cotton - 5 onesies, 3 hats, 3 pairs of socks, one bib, one receiving blanket and one burp cloth.

All rolled together to look like little flower buds in this pretty ceramic planter - SUCH a unique gift for a baby shower!

We Go Together.....

Like Peanut Butter and Jelly!

A friend of mine wanted something for her daughter and daughter's best friend that was "outside the box" so......I came up with this! It is drawn, cut, fused and then sewn on by me so it is truly one-of-a-kind!

This would be so cute on a set of twins, siblings or best friends like these are going to be worn by. Can't wait to see some cute pictures! You know they're gonna get some fun comments while wearing these!

Personalized sippy and adult cups - inside paper choices

I just got back from the sewing store and also got an order in the mail of the kiwi paper - the special paper for the inside of the adult and kid cups - check out all these fun choices! There about a jillion more but I figure at $1.50 a pop, this was enough to start with! So, let me know when you're ready to order, which top color and paper and threadcolor you'd like.....and as usual, if you don't see it here....I can get it for you! :)

NEW - personalized sippies!

OOOOOHHHHH - I have been waiting for these to arrive and they're HERE! I can't wait to not only make my own two kids some of these, but YOURS, too!

I have both the straw and spout cups = both are 10oz insulated cups and can be personalized in any way you like! You can even get more than one insert to change it up a bit! The cups are $15 and extra inserts are $5.

The straw cups come in these colors: green, blue, red, purple, teal and pink.The spout cups come in these colors: teal, blue and red.I only have a limited number of each so order fast - these are super hard to find and aren't cheap! But, I just had to have them!

Here is an example of some insert ideas........ And a few cup examples:

Boys First Birthday Shirts

These boys birthday shirts are getting popular! People are now finding me on their google searches - HOW EXCITING! It is so hard to find boys birthday stuff that isn't fru-fru - these are just perfect!
This font pulled a bit - I won't be using that one again! But, I LOVE the colors this Mommy picked out to match Colton's invites she made!

Happy First Birthday guys!

Custom Embroidery Orders

Here is Camryn's Easter dress - I added a big monogram - she looked so sweet in it!
LOVE this funky font!

My neighbor's little girl's Easter dress needed a little something so I added a sweet little H:
Here is an appliqued and embroidered sleep shirt - fun and funky...and comfy!
Another little monogram I did - LOVE this Kellys Kids Dress!

Two Easter basket liners - they turned out cute and I bet looked AWESOME in the baskets on Easter morning!

Since most of my items are embroidery and applique, I suggest either handwashing or washing inside out on the gentle cycle and then laying flat to dry - warm iron with a cloth over the item on LOW if needed!

Sippy cups and tumblers CAN be washed in the dishwasher but TAKE OUT the embroidered fabric/paper FIRST!
