Project Charlie Single Auction Piece ~ Stones in Blue

Pin It

I absolutely fell in love with this fabric.
{Rocky Shore by Lotta Jansdotter if you want to purchase it}
I decided to create a new design element, an embellishment.
The detachable bow adds a 70's vintage flare to the piece.

The best part?
The bow is pinned on which means you can take it off!
And I have this one RTS in a size 4T.
But I will tell you this, my daughter is a size 6 and fit comfortably.
I even like the shorter length on her!

Today only, I am auctioning this piece.
Starting bid is $30.
Anything over will go to Project Charlie.
{read more about Project Charlie HERE}

Want a chance to win this piece?
Come on over to our Facebook page and put in your bid!
HERE is the photo, just comment below.

The colors are beautiful.
The style is timeless.
You know you want this for your little girl
Or give it as a present and help a good cause!

Happy Friday Peeps!

Aviary Sparrow in Plum ~ Tunic Dress

Pin It
Ah, the Aviary Sparrow in Bark went somewhat "viral".
The Sparrow in Plum is just as gorgeous.
{gotta love PicMonkey for fabulous & easy collages}

Don't mind the sassy girl wearing the dress.
But I gotta say that she has that "look" down pat!

This particular order is for Lauren's girls.
And these will be worn for photos with the FABULOUS Candace.
{if you haven't, go check out Eye Candy by Candace, you MUST}

Honestly, I can't wait to see the results.

Below is a new {SIG} tweak to an old pattern.
We added the sash rather than ribbon ties.
And instead of the typical bow, we knotted it instead.

I love how the fabric hangs down!

I love the shot below.
I love the fence.
The green on the fence (mold or what ever it is).
The rotting of the fence.

Told the hubs he can't ever take the fence down.
{i'm sure the termites will do the job gladly}

No matter all the nonsense I talking, this fabric is amazing.
Joel Dewberry really outdid himself with this collection and the palettes of color.
As a matter of fact, I am drooling over the Herloom Collection, in Citrine.

Anywho, we are currently taking orders for this awesome fabric.
Through October 1st to be exact!
If you would like to order, make sure to click on the photo below and follow instructions.

That's all I have for tonight.
My son has a raging ear infection and has first class accommodations
in bed next to his momma and he is insisting that we go lay down.
Must be tough being a 4.5 year old boy.

Good night peeps!
Hope to see you tomorrow, I have another pretty outfit to share!

Fall Infinity Scarves

Pin It

Aren't they purrrrrdy!?!
{yes, I am from the South...well, technically Argentina but been here long enough}
They sold out pretty darn quickly too.
Except for my pretty peachy pumpkin scarf (bottom right).

And they are super easy to make.
I could even tell you how without photos but what fun would that be?
{are you gonna come back for the tutorial, lol}

These were some pretty fall striped fabric that I held until just the right time.
The weather is cooling down who am i kidding, it is still summer in Houston.
Scarves are all the rage, especially these infinity scarves.

They can be worn in so many ways.
That reminds me, I'll get Andrea to take pics of me wearing them in all the ways.
This way, you can see first hand how versatile these are.

Once you make one, you will make another 10.
It will be perfect for Christmas gift giving.
Just think about all those teachers!
{cuz you can get 2 scarves outta 1 yard}

So, I am thinking either the infinity scarf tutorial or the bling-your-Converse tutorial.
What do you want to do/see next?

I'm game either way!
So long as my kids don't get even more sick,
I should be able to get through at least one tutorial by the weekend,
ready to post for all to see on Monday.

Sound good?
Night peeps...gotta take care of a sick little boy.

Project Charlie

Pin It
First, please forgive me for the absence.
I am still adjusting to working outside the home twice a week
and keeping up with a growing business.

BUT, you won't hear me complain!
I like to be busy.

Project Charlie

You are probably wondering what Project Charlie is all about.
Let me tell you.

My running buddy, Diana, who is also one of my besties,
is an incredible woman that has taken to helping save animals.
She fosters bully breeds (pit bulls and pit mixes) and works
closely with the BARC Animal Shelter here in Houston.

We all know shelters are always full, always in need.
This is where Project Charlie comes in.

We want to make the cages a bit more comfortable for the animals,
in particular, the kitties as they do not like to sleep on metal.
That is where we come in.

We would like to make fleece knot blankies for all the kitties.
In order to do that, we need HELP!
The blankets will be about 2.5' x 2' which will
allow us to make 3 blankets per 2 yards of fleece fabric.

Our goal is to make at least 100 blankets by December 1st.
But not only that, we want to give the staff something as well.
You know they are over-worked and under-paid.

What better way to say thank you to them other than putting together
a wonderful care package for each one which will include but not be
limited to a $5 gift certificate (to anywhere but preferably to Starbucks,
fast food restaurants, Target, Walmart, etc), soda, and snacks.

In order to make Project Charlie a success, we need your help!
We are accepting donations to purchase all the items above.
Whether it be in the form of cash, check, or items such as
fleece, sodas, snacks, or gift cards...we would really appreciate it!

If you are in Houston and don't have the funds to send something in,
it's ok because we need man power to make the blankets.
Knot blankies are so easy to make and we will gladly give you
the supplies you need in order to make it, just let us know!

We hope to make Project Charlie a yearly event.
This is our way of reaching out to help BARC.

The question is, will you take the challenge and help us?
For more information, please email us at
signature (dot) creations (at) hotmail (dot) com
and help us make this a success!!!

You can also donate by sending money via PayPal to
the same email address as above.
Just make sure to send it PERSONAL and GIFT
so Paypal doesn't take any fees from your donation.
Also, put PROJECT CHARLIE as the subject!

We appreciate you, your help, and you spreading the word!

Happy Friday peeps!

J.Marie Designs Giveaway

Pin It

Jana and I have become friends over the past couple of years.
Like me, she is also a mom that loves to sew for her children.
Her outfits are absolutely precious and her quality is amazing!

Here is a little something she wrote to let you know about her...

Hi! I’m Jana, the energy behind J.Marie Designs.

As a Proud US Coast Guard wife and mom to 3 amazing kids, my dream with J.Marie Designs is to create amazing custom clothing. I love fabrics, colors, textures and design. I enjoy incorporating embroidery and monograms into my clothing designs. I work with some amazing pattern designers, too. My inspiration comes from my children… all three of them! Coming up with clothing my teen will wear has been a challenge. Creating custom clothes for my son was another challenge. There isn’t a ton out there for 8 year old boys as far as patterns go – but that’s being remedied. My youngest daughter is my little fashionista – my muse. Living on a small island in Alaska presented challenges all its own.

We were transferred this summer from Kodiak, Alaska to Mobile, Alabama – talk about culture shock!  WE LOVE IT HERE!!!  I feel so at home here.  Still adjusting to the heat and humidity, though, but have come to the conclusion that I enjoy the warm weather. 

J.Marie Designs has evolved from my love of sewing and my love of adorable boutique clothing, hair bows and accessories for kids. 

And for this week, in celebration of hitting 3000 fans,
she is giving away an awesome outfit just like below BUT
it will be made using Christmas fabrics!

Make sure you get all your points in by completing all the tasks!
