A Little Love from Lyla!

Some of the greatest gifts I have ever received have been handmade. I have a framed cross-stitch angel, a memory quilt, personalized bookmarks, a scrapbook, and even cd's that people made just for me! I can't tell you how amazing it is to be able to make something just for somebody! I have a dear friend who is expecting and I finally put these appliques on a shirt for her. Whether you make them yourself or you get them from ETSY, show some love to the little guys and give handmade crafts as gifts! The recipients will be sure to love them!

"Can you match these pants?"

I was sent a picture message of these pants with a request to make a shirt to match them. I couldn't get it perfect, but I still like how it turned out. I hope my happy little niece likes it!!!

It was so much fun to make! Challenging, but fun. It was hard not to make it too busy. I didn't want the shirt to out-do those awesome pants!

Of course I had to add some bows! (Thanks again Late Aunt Margie for the material)

I figured out how to make embroidery knots to help accent the fruit.

In honor of Earth Day

I found this tank top at a yard sale for a quarter and spruced it up for Earth Day. It is so fun now that people are cleaning out their closets because I can find some really great deals on blank shirts! Yay!

Sorry for the blog hiatus. The sun came out this spring and we ran out the door and have been outside ever since. It felt good to sew again. I have a few things I am working on and should put them up shortly. Hope everybody is enjoying the sunshine!!
