Produce Bags

How cool is my friend Erin?! She's hooked me up with selling my produce bags at her local CSA in Brooklyn. I now have 25...yes 25!...yards of fabric waiting to be sewn! Thanks Erin!

Thinking and Planning

I've got big ideas. I'm gearing up for my summer piloting and creating.

1. 4th of July shirts/dresses...anyone interested? Let me know! I'm taking orders

2. Remember my cool travel car caddies? ( Well...I've been thinking about expanding my line of portable fun.... farms, planes, helicopters.... My amazing hubby has been nagging me to get started with drawings he's created for fun with Ben.

3. Don't want to leave out those beautiful little girls...I'm thinking fairies. Lots and lots of fairies.

Stay Tuned. I better get started!

A Dinosaur Shirt

I realized I hadn't made anything for my own kiddos in awhile. So--I created a bunch of shirts for Ben. I've been trying to capture them on camera, but he's a wiggler. Hope you can see this dinosaur. If you look closely at the fabric, it also has dinosaurs on it.

My girlfriend had me re-create a boden shirt of hers that was stained. A simple kitty for a cute little girl.

Pac Man! Birthday Shirt

One of my best friends from college is celebrating her son's first birthday in a couple weeks. He's known as PAKman. So...why not a pacman shirt to celebrate this occasion?! I did it on the large size, but think it's super cute. I hope she likes it!

Birthday Crown

I love doing birthday crowns. This is the first time I added flowers to the felt as well. I make my crowns from wool felt, interfacing, and usually accents like buttons, flowers, gems, etc. I custom make them to match outfits or themes as well (boy and girl).

Airplane Birthday Shirt

I usually don't mix different patterns like this, but I loved the way it turned out. I actually don't think the pictures do the shapes justice. The blue has some swirls in it and it popped right out. I hope the birthday boy loved this too!
