Dresses and Outfits and Toppers OH MY!

I've been trying to play catch-up from the recent out-of-town visit, while baby boy is with one set of grandparents for the week. After I finish my current sales, I need to finish sewing slipcovers for my own house before my parents come to town this weekend to celebrate Labor Day.

SO, due to the aforementioned, I am going to have to place a hold on incoming orders until Tuesday, the 8th (the day after Labor Day) so I can enjoy my family and friends--and WATCH SOME FOOTBALL!!! :) But that's only one week you have to wait to place your orders, so don't despair! In the meantime, check out these items--some are similar to previously made items and some are BRAND NEW!

Auburn Inspired Pillowcase Dress

Mississippi State-Inspired Boy's Outfit

This customer and I couldn't think of anything else--does State have a "Hotty Toddy" or a "Roll Tide?"

Elastic waisted pants

Applique & Monogrammed Boy's Tee

One of my best customers can sew and smock AMAZINGLY--she's making her daughter a fun pair of pants with this crimson and elephant fabric. I used the elephant as my inspiration for the applique, and now her shirt will match her pants perfectly!

One of my Etsy orders--First Cheer Shirt sold! YAY!

I LOVE this fabric!

Matching Burp, Bib & Onesie Set

NEW! NEW! NEW! Favor Bag Toppers--and I package them as they will be used. Attach to cellophane bags with staples. How fun are they? These match a friend's daughter birthday plates. Will not be sold as is--licensed image of Build-A-Bear--just wanted to give you the jest of what I'll be offering soon.

NEW! NEW! NEW! Cupcake Toppers to match your Favor Bags (and your Invites)!!!
Set of 12 on lollipop sticks (can have 6 each of two images or 12 of one image)

They're so fun to look at in their packaging. :)

These are just some up-close pics of the Cupcake Toppers--aren't they presh?!

They're dimensional! Lollipop stick sandwiched between top image and bottom colored cardstock.

Oh and I'm hoping to start making some things for H-A-DOUBLE L-O-DOUBLE U-DOUBLE E-N!!! So be on the lookout for that too! Whew! :)

On The Way

Just a quick update...didn't want to leave you hanging for the normal Tuesday post.

Baby boy and I took a several days to visit all the Grands, so I wasn't able to create anything to post today. BUT, I have TONS and TONS and TONS of orders that I'm hoping to have finished by next Tuesday. A few of these things include, but are not limited to:

• An Auburn Pillowcase Dress
• A Mississippi State Boy's Pants Set
• A University of Alabama Boy's Pants Set
• A Rocketship Inspired Twin Sheet Set
• Calling Cards
• Possibly Treat/Favor Bag Toppers--if time permits!

WHEW! and that's not all! Thankfully, my wild man's grandparents will be keeping him this next week, so my plan is to complete all orders and sew some slipcovers for my living room! Busy, busy, busy--and I LOVE IT! :)

Happy Tuesday, y'all!

Ole Miss Pillowcase Dress!!!

So, I couldn't wait to post this until my weekly posting day of Tuesday--it's just SO CUTE!

I had a sorority sis contact me wanting some fun game day gear for her one-year-old sweet baby girl. We decided to go with a pillowcase dress since it will transition well into fall with a longsleeve shirt and leggings. It can also grow with her--once the length gets too small, it can become a shirt so just add pants! So with that premise, she wanted something football-ish and with Hotty Toddy. I already had the great red & blue gingham that we used for the base of the dress, and I added the red swirls to make it a little more fun. I created the applique, and can be altered for any other school.

Without further ado, here it is!

Collegiate-Inspired Pillowcase Dress: $35

Football Inspired

If you haven't noticed from a few of my items, I love to show my school spirit. This is more evident during the season of FOOTBALL, I mean, fall. Now from the houndstooth and combo colors of blue and red, fellow SEC lovers can tell my heart lies with the Crimson Tide and the Ole Miss Rebels (born and raised a Bama fan, but college scholarship drew me out of state to the Heart of Dixie.) However, I consider myself a pretty open-minded person, and have created some fabulous items for a fellow SEC team. :)

This customer was so creative with her vision of having a football themed baby shower, and her wording was the icing on the cake! I created the clipart. Printed on white cardstock. Background black and red are cut, textured cardstock.
Price for similar invite: $1.75 per piece

I've been dying to make some collegiate-inspired baby gear, so this was a great opportunity for me to use my clipart and the giant ric-rac I love oh-so-much!
Collegiate-Inspired Burp: $14

Just a pic of the two items together so you can see how cute they are--a great way to keep a memento of the party for months on end!

If you like these items, I can create them for ANY team you root for and I'm not limited to just the Southeastern Conference.
