loo-loo loves her new apron


Loo-loo has been waiting forever for her chicken apron. The fabric is Robert Kaufman, and now I can't find it!

It is so perfect for an apron, don't ya think?

here kitty kitty...

I made this as a gift for someone I love. I am posting a photo or 2 because I can't resist, and because she doesn't even know my blog exists, so I should be safe!



I got this pattern from my mom, who got it from her aunt Wilma. I guess Wilma used to make these vintage pillows for the kids for Christmas- so I wanted in on the vintage family action! I used really soft flannel, and it is amazing! (but really hard to embroider- flannel does not like to be marked by anything!) Oh well, it took a little more time than I anticipated but it turned out better! You will definitely see more of these in the future...

Aprons on Demand!

Here are some photos of some aprons that I have been making this week. A few special requests for Christmas or birthday gifts...

A "mini" version of Sweet Tooth in tiny! So cute! (it's for a 2 1/2 year old)

Apple Dot (pink) for a Birthday.

Apple Dot (green) for Christmas.

Thanks for giving me business! I will make aprons for you all any time!

Felt flower hairclips #2

The colors are off in these photos- but they give you an idea of the new styles that I have been making.

I just got in a bunch of new felt- so I have LOTS of choices for any special requests you may have. These are all the small size- infant and children's. Contact me for pricing.

new aprons!

So I have been working on these for forever! (it seems like) Pretty much half of November and a few days here and there this month. Of course I thought that if I did a bunch at the same time, that it would save me time, but it didn't. Go figure.

I do have more...but they are not cut out yet and I have to get some more fabric for some of them- so watch for those a little later this month! (yes, I am crazy.)

Ready? Set- Go!

Juicy by Alexander Henry
This one is different than the one I did for my mom. I used a different fabric for the ties, ruffle & pocket.

Antler Damask by Joel Dewberry
(I swear I didn't know that this had deer on it. Luckily, it's still pretty cute)

Metro Market Hen (spring) by Robert Kaufman

This one is not for sale, sorry! Loo-loo picked out this fabric so I could make her her very own apron. I should have gotten more of it- it's sold out everywhere I look for it!

And I had accidentally gotten too little of the yellow fabric, and when I went to get more, they had a pattern kit for an apron with this same fabric! So when I asked where the yellow was, the lady wouldn't give me any 'cause it was set aside for the class! Kinda rude, I don't care that they did that, I just wished that she would of been nicer about giving me a tiny 1/4 of a yard.


Apparently I am obsessed with Robert Kaufman right now. Kinda funny. (funny-strange not funny-ha-ha.)

I am selling these for $50. Just in time for Christmas! Please contact me by email-

if you would like to purchase one.

I plan on listing them on Etsy, I just don't know when.

girl burp cloths

Believe it or not, I actually started theses last spring. Eeek- why am I so behind?

Anyway, these burp cloths sell for $35, they come in a set of 3, and they are made with Premium cloth diapers and cute designer fabric. I dye each batch myself, and they have been pre-washed.

Lil Birds

Light Pink with bird print, Light Grey with pink floral, and Medium Aqua with blue floral.

Garden Party

PhotobucketKelly Green with floral print, Light Purple with stripes, and Fuchsia with polka dots.

I plan on listing these on Etsy, I just don't know when. I will also have some detail shots of each one so you can see the fabric and the colors of the burp cloths better.
