Black, White and Red all over PLUS BLING

One very cool mom ordered this bag for her tween daughter. I knew this bag was screaming for some Twilight. The embroidery on the front says "Fanpire... I'm a Twilight Girl". Her name is embroidered on the reverse side. I won't show that picture because this is a Christmas gift. I don't want to spoil any surprises. So I added something new to this bag. It has loops and a sash/tie. I think that it adds the perfect touch. The tie is also reversible so there are many options on how she can wear it. Here are a few...

Faith Hope and Don't you LOVE this



Posted by Picasa

I was very excited when Joy picked this fabric. I had been showing it to lots of clients hoping that someone would select it. It is called Fleur Tattoo by Michael Miller. My only wish is that it said Amy across the top. As always it has 6 roomy pockets, a vinyl protective bottom and a key fob. I've also added some additional top stitching to help give it a more "finished" look.

This really is my favorite blanket of all time. It is hard to really say that because I have made quite a few. I used a super soft and cuddly brown fabric paired with a dinosaur print flannel. I then embroidered a dinosaur to match along with Emmett's name. The orange and brown must have been inspired by the season change.

Take me out to the ball park...

This bag is all boy. I love the baseball lining.

Who would have thought?

This cute bag was ordered for a new mom that loves owls. It has a deep brown background and I choose orange as the accent color. I used orange for the embroidery, pockets and key fob tie. I also made a changing pad using the same owl fabric.

Black and White revealed

Well Kat was right. It was a tote bag (of course). I also made a diaper clutch to match. My orders for this bag were to make it not too fancy, so I had to leave the ribbon accent and embroidery off. But I still think that it turned out pretty nice. I'm loving the new Michael Miller fabric.
P.S. The black, white and red have put me in the mood for Twilight.
P.S.S. Stay tuned for something entirely new.

Could this be a new favorite?

I know that a mother should never say that she has a favorite but this bag might make me break that rule. I loved the finished product. I have been showing this fabric to many clients, always hoping that someone would pick it and finally someone did. I used Michael Miller cotton Brown Carnival Blossom with Michael Miller Jet Brown on the outer bag and Michael Miller Breeze Vintage Dot for the lining. If a bag could have a personality I would say that it is playful and happy. I hope it's new owner feels the same way.

As with all my bags I added a magnetic closure, key fob and vinyl lining on the bottom.

Soft Stripes and Dots

Shown are a bib, onesie, tag blanket, and full size blanket. All made with soft flannel on both sides.

Look Who's Turning One

I got this idea from my good friend, Nicole. We also made one in blues for her little one.

More Brown and Green... I just can't get enough- Revised

I always tend to gravitate towards brown and green. This client gave me NO direction but simply said you pick everything. So it wasn't a huge surprise that these fabrics were the winners.

I received this comment about this bag and had to share:

"I ended up flying to MD last minute this past weekend & was able to give my granny her b-day gift myself this morning, & the bag you made was a ridiculous hit! Before I even gave it to her I saw a strange yellow bag with the old "Mason's Great Granny" cut out of her old (worn beyond recognition) bag & stapled to it because she loved it so much she wanted to continue using it as much she could. Little did I realize how perfect the timing was for the replacement bag! My grandma about DIED when she opened her present & saw the NEW bag - the colors were perfect, the plastic bottom was perfect - she adores the keychain holder & the snap - this is just PERFECT & she is in heaven. With everything going on with my gramps, this has proven to be a lovely, perfect, unexpectedly wicked distraction - and it's so damned perfect! Thank you so much!"

Where has the time gone?

I can't believe that my last post here was in January! Life has been busy... but give me a break.
My pledge is to be better at posting my projects.... shhhh... I'm secretly taking orders. Don't you dare spread that around. I've been enjoying a minute to breath.

The JoJo's Gone Wild

One of the reasons that I love doing this is getting new ideas and color combinations from clients that I wouldn't necessarily pick myself. Point in case is my newest JoJo. I've been wanting to use brown and white zebra for a while and finally found someone that appreciated it as much as I did. She picked teal as her accent color and it turned out so nice. The teal added the perfect pop or color.

Maui or Bust

If this bag doesn't make you want to jump on a plane and head for Hawaii then I don't know what will. I hope that Becky enjoyed this Christmas gift from her daughter.
