I have created this blog because I wanted to be able to share my love of sewing with fellow crafters. Sewing & Crafting are one of the loves in my life and a wonderful relaxing hobby. I hope to help inspire and encourage others by showing my creations.

To this I will add that I need a place to document my thoughts and feelings as I go through this journey called life. Every time I try to start a writing journal, it lasts for about a week. I am hoping that this format "sticks" for me better than what I have done in the past.

Minnie Mouse Pillowcase Dress

Oh My!! This darling creation is just TOO-TOO CUTE!! This customer ordered something to wear this summer for her trip to Disney World.

The embroidery and applique work is very sharp-looking. All of my inside seams are completed with a professional, hidden french-seam so that no raw edges are showing (no fraying in the wash).

I can't wait to see photos of this little gal in this dress with her Minnie-Mouse-Ears hat accessory :)

I am truly excited about this tote ~ And of course, it looks EVEN BETTER in person than it does here in the photo.

My baby sister belongs to the Tri-Sigma Sorority at College and asked me if I could make something in PURPLE with the Sigma logo on it ~ And this is what I created.

Doesn't it look FANTASTIC ?!!?

My inbox has been overflowing with orders for these cute little pillowcase dresses the past two weeks. And of course, my hubby is excited about it too ~ a little extra $$$ to pay the bills is ALWAYS appreciated.

These photos are just a few examples of some custom orders I have filled. My customers tell me about the likes / dislikes of their little princesses as well as a little something about her personality and I go out for a personal-shopping spree for that perfect fabric for their little one.

And a few of these dresses were done to match some hair accessories that the customer already had, with no clothing to match. ~ Can't wait to see her with her hair bows and her new dresses!
