So, due to inspiration from BFF Cacey, I've decided to add Gift Certificates! YAY! I'm so excited, and obviously, new to this new function of PayPal. I do know you have to have a PayPal account to use, and thankfully, PayPal basic accounts are FREE, as are Etsy accounts to purchase from there! Because one has to have a PayPal account to use a gift certificate, and the only form of payment I accept on, I've decided to currently offer the gift certificates only for my Etsy site. Plus, on Etsy you can add multiple items to your cart before you check out, insert your sizes and color options in message to Seller, and it automatically calculates shipping and grand totals!

If you decide to use this fabulous new feature, please let me know if you or the recipient has an issues. You have an option to print your gift card, so you can still give a physical piece of something for your special person to open. It even has my little logo in the corner (though, I'm not please with how it stretches--can't figure out how to fix that one. Menial, regardless.) Of course directions on how to redeem the gift certificate are also listed on the print out!

Just scroll down, and look on the right sidebar for the new Gift Certificates button under the Buy Now button! :)

Die-Cut Kiddie Calling Cards

Need a card to drop into a gift your child's giving? Or do you need a kiddie/mommy calling card for those playdates? Make sure everyone remembers you and your wee ones with a unique, die-cut Kiddie Card.

Currently, I have the bunny and football die cut. The football doesn't have to have the houndstooth, and either card can be printed and cut from any lighter color cardstock. They can include your kid(s)' name solely, or both kids name and yours. Add phone number and/or email for an easy way to keep in contact with other mommies!

$12 for 24

I have TONS of other thing I want to post, but that will have to wait until next week--once I'm semi-caught up on current orders! Hope you've had a terrific Tuesday, y'all!

Itty Bitty Rammer Jammer

With the influx of orders for my Collegiate Inspired Pillowcase Dresses, some people needed cute clothes for the wee little ones--under 12 months.

I think the absolute smallest I can make the pillowcase dress is 6 months size. Having said that, I made the pictured Bama dress for my best friend's 3 month old daughter. It should be a little long now, and perfect for at least one more season. PLEASE remember to supervise infants while wearing the pillowcase dresses, especially the long ties.

I have a dear friend who is a life-time fan and graduate of the Crimson Tide, and met his beautiful wife there. They just had an adorable baby girl a few days ago, so I wanted to make her some things to add to, what I can only assume is, a massive collection of Tide Pride clothes! Matching her gown, I made the elephant red work design to encompass her initials for the bib and burp cloth. To my horror, as I was completing the burp cloth, my iron let it's presence be known--by leaving a nasty brown mark over the embroidered piece! Grrr! At least I have more burps, but that makes me so sad to be oh-so-close to finished only to ruin the whole piece! BOO!


Molly's Momma wanted her to have bloomers, but I'll be making her some matching leggings in the near future.

The font of Molly's name matches the Roll Tide applique.

This wrap gown ONLY comes in size 0-3 Months. Can do gown with plain onesie up to size 6-9 Months, but won't have trim. Plain onesie's will have iron on applique that is on Pillowcase Dresses.

Other gowns will have one tie at bottom that matches the Pillowcase Dress top ties.

Mish Mash--Cuteness in a Flash

Just wanted to post a few more things that I've completed for a few customers. I'm hoping to create a new collegiate-inspired item this week for newborns/infants, so they don't get left out. (Pillowcase dress sizes are for 12m-4T, and boy's Pants Set are also 12m-4T. Larger Pillowcase dresses can be made special order--please contact for quote.)

I call these two dresses a "sister set." They're the same fabrics just opposite placement.

I didn't get a close-up of the hairbow that matches perfectly, but at least you can see how great they go together!

If the shape of this shirt looks funny to you--it should! It's a doggy shirt!

Iron-on transfers so your presh pooch can cheer on their favorite teams and not picks sides between mommy and daddy!

First Tennessee Vols outfit created. This is cute--this household is a "house divided" with mommy a Rebel fan and daddy a Vols fan. Little sister got a Hotty Toddy Pillowcase dress and big sister got a Rocky Top Pillowcase dress.

So, I've come to the realization that I'm going to have to create an actual website, with categories, buttons to click, shopping cart--the whole nine yards. I'll be working on that in the next few months in my "spare time." Haha! Maybe we'll have a release date at the first of the year?!
