A twist on Baby Bop

Pin It

Now, my kids like Barney.
But I'm not sure I would dress them up
like the actual characters for Halloween.


When Kayla contacted me
about making Izzy something Baby Bop
for Halloween,
it was the perfect opportunity
to run w/ her vision!

We ended up with a green shirt (obviously),
a hot pink tutu, &
a matching bow.

To be added by Kayla,
a pair of green tights.

In my opinion,
the perfect alternative
to the costume.

And the best part?
Izzy can wear the shirt until she outgrows it!
And play with the tutu anytime she wants.

Money well spent!

Buzz Lightyear/Toy Story Lounge Set

Pin It
A fellow triplet mommy asked a favor,
could I make a lounge set for her son
b/c he was going in to the hossy.

I couldn't resist.
Don't know that I ever would.
She gave me some ideas.

This is the result.
He loves Buzz.
And Buzz he's getting!

If this will make him happy,
it will make me happy.

Dora the Explorer Twirly Skirt & Top

Pin It

This was a fun skirt to make.
It is for another special little girl
that will be heading to the hossy
to take care of some issues she is having.

It breaks my heart...
children in hospitals.

I only hope the special outfit
will make it all better.

And every little girl
should have a matching messy flower.
A little gift from me.

Barbie Twirly Skirt

Pin It
This is going to a special little girl.
She is fighting cancer.
Has been for a while.

She is only 5.
It breaks my heart.
BUT the thought of her twirling around in this skirt.

It gives me chills.
I hope it makes her happy.

Big Poppy Twirly Skirts

Pin It
I've been D to the Y to the ING
to work w/ this fabric.

Those poppies are the most beautiful ever!
It doesn't help that my mom's name is Poppy.

I lied.
It does.

But the mix of the orange-red
and the denim blue...


I loved watching the fabric run through my machines.
It kept me happy.

I know, I'm weird.
You don't need to tell me.

But admit it.
It's beautiful.

Halloween Pillowcase Dress

Pin It

I found this totally cute Halloween candy print.
I couldn't resist.
Put it w/ some polka dot fabric.
You've got a cute dress!

Live in colder weather?
That's not an issue.
Pillowcase dresses are forgiving.

Simply layer!
Long sleeve or turtleneck.
Jeans or leggings.

You choose!

Pink & Black Burp Cloths

Pin It
These are so pretty.

I can always make the dress later.

Dia de los Muertos Burp Cloths

Pin It

This came as a special request.
Dia de los Muertos burp cloths.

AKA (in English) ~ Day of the Dead

The Spanish celebrate Halloween a bit differently.
They celebrate among the dead.
And the artwork that has come from this celebration
is breath-takingly beautiful.

Needless to say,
when I saw not 1 but THREE fabrics
that embraced the Dia de los Muertos,
I snatched some up.

All I needed was someone to love it as much as I did.
And Brandi does.
These will be for her new baby.
Gender unknown.

I just love the colors!
So pretty & vibrant.

And if these don't suit your taste,
all is well.
I can use any other fabric under the sun.
Pictures to follow shortly.

I promise.

Rockin' Boy Lounge Sets

Pin It
I'm going to get in trouble making these.
They turn out so cute!
Can't help but think of all the possibilities
that lay in each isle of Joann's or Hobby Lobby.

It makes my mouth water.

And that's never a good thing.

These lounge sets are
comfy enough for the laziest Saturday,
stylish & trendy enough
to wear out on the town!

At $28-30 a set,
it is a great outfit for your boy!

Red Skull Lounge Set

Rock of Love Lounge Set

Flaming Star Lounge Set

I did something different to the applique stitching.
I went around w/ a zig zag,
and then a straight stitch.
Just for fun :)

Send me fabric & I'll create what ever!

Pin It
I'm really a one-of-a-kind
type of gal.
It must be the ADD shining through.

What does this mean for you?
Send me your fabric.
What ever you like.

I'll create a dress.
Maybe a pair of shorts.
Ruffle pants.

What ever you can think of.
It will turn out cute
and you have the benefit
of calling it a special creation.

Oh, & the cost of my labor,
much cheaper!

Jennifer sent me this beautiful fabric.
And this is what she got sent back.

She paid me for the knot dress,
the tie shirt,
and a pair of white bloomers.

I had enough fabric left over
so I made her a pair of ruffle pants,
no charge.

I'm a sucker for cuteness.

Knot Dresses & Ruffle Pants

Pin It
These 2 go together beautifully.
And then you can use the pants later,
with a solid color shirt.

Remember the knot dress grows
w/ your little girl.

It starts as a dress,
and ends up being a top!

Twinkie B-day Shirts

Pin It

Have I mentioned that I'm a triplet mom?
Yes, THREE babies at one time.
It has been eventful.

No doubt.

So, when I get a request
from a Mom of Multiples,
I jump all over it!

Did I mention that MoMs get a 10%?
Yep, cuz buying for more than 1 makes it expensive.

And did I tell you if you are buying coordinating outfits
for siblings, that same 10% is extended?

Back to the point.
Michelle contacted me about making b-day shirts
for her daughters' 2nd birthday.

Hope & Abbey.

Primary colors w/ red being the focus.
And matching bows.

I can't wait to see them on the girls!
May you have a beautiful birthday!

Bubble Dresses

Pin It
I got hooked up w/ a photographer in California.
She wanted some special dresses
for a special girls' photo shoot.

Who better for the job to construct the dresses?
Me, of course!

When I saw the pattern,
I thought this was going to be a doozy.
I was going to eat it on this one for sure.

I am happy to report that the pattern didn't beat me.
I beat the pattern!

The result?
These 2 gorgeous dresses for Becca Hamilton Photography.

I can't wait to see the pics!

Route 66

Pin It
Well it goes to St. Louis, down to Missouri
Oklahoma City looks oh, so pretty
You'll see Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona, don't forget Wynonna
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino

If you get hip to this kind of trip
I think I'll take that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66.

Have I ever said how much I loved Depeche Mode?
Well, I do/did.
They were my idol band.

When Nickie
(can you tell she's a popular requestor?)
asked me to do a boy's lounge set
using this fabulous fabric,
I jumped on it.

Pair it off w/ a vintage truck,
and it is the perfect wear around the house,
for a quick outing,
to sleep in,
or for some super cute pic ops.

Starting at $35,
it is sure to catch attention!

I just have to blog about it.
Cuz I'm so excited.

I'm changing the logo.
And the design of everything else.

My work has taken me in a new direction.
And I couldn't be more excited.

A lovely online FB friend, Tiffany,
volunteered for the job.
She has been WONDERFUL.

Absolutely fabulous.

We are revamping everything.
The blog page.
The Etsy banner.
Business cards.


Tags for clothing!

Here is a tiny little peak.
Cuz I just can't stand it.

I'm totally in love.

So, if you need something made up all custom,
you let me know & I'll get you in contact w/ Tiffany.

A huge thank you!

The perfect outfit for the 1st day of school!

Pin It

Nickie wanted something special for Lorna.

Care Bear special.

She found the fabric,
had it sent directly to me,
and I got to play w/ it.

The only requirements...

1) It be mostly Care Bear.
2) Twirly skirt.
3) Matching messy flower pin.

And this is what I came up with.

I love me the messy flower.
It's my new obsession!

Basically, if you find a fabric you love,
I can create.
Only a nominal fee will apply.

Really, I'm not that expensive.
