You get 'Zeke' !    Poor little Zeke is caught in the middle.
Wonder what team he will pull for?

Snowflake shirt

This is my 'Breakfast with Santa' shirt.
My church - Lanett Nazarene Church - will be hosting a Breakfast with Santa next Saturday,
December 3rd from 9 am to 11 am.  I will be helping with crafts so I needed a shirt to fit the theme,
which is  'Jesus Loves You Snow Much'.  We will decorate with snowmen and snowflakes.

Button-on Tabs

This basic outfit needed a little something on the bib.

I used the 'button on Tab' applique design from
It comes in sizes ranging from 1.5 x 4  to 3 x 7.
I used the smallest size for this outfit.

I used red thread for the name and outline and red micro-check fabric for the applique.
I used clear buttons so any color tab will work. This will be cute with a red shirt.

This button on tab was made with polka dot fabric.
The purse design is from
This will look good with a pink shirt & bow.
This button on tab is made with a Christmas Dot fabric and stitched with lime green thread.
Pink, Red or Green will work with this tab.

Here are the tabs up close.  The possibilities are endless!

Christmas Gifts Last Year

Last year for Christmas,  I made each child in my
Kindergarten Sunday School Class a pillowcase with their name on it.

I don't know what I will make this year.  I have 4 boys and 2 girls in my class.
A few of them were in my class last year so the gift has to be different.
Any suggestions for 4 & 5 year olds?

It's a Secret!

I have been busy making gifts.... some for Christmas and some for new babies.
Because they have not been 'gifted' yet - I cannot show pictures of them.
I plan on posting them after they have been received - so stay tuned...

Monogrammed Hand Towels

I monogrammed 4 hand towels this past weekend for a customer.
These will make a really nice gift.

Three Little Turkeys

Turkey shirts for three little turkeys.....
Happy Thanksgiving!
I added a ruffle to some jeans using the same fabric as in the turkeys above.
This will make a cute outfit for 'Madison'. 
It is also a great way to extend the life of 'too short' jeans for girls.

Elegant Bibs

I was asked to make several bibs for a friend's mother,
who is a resident of an assisted living home.
She is a very elegant lady and needed something special.
This is the first one. It is made from a hand towel.
 The bottom edge is turned up to serve as pockets as well as a crumb catcher.

Here is the next one.  I added a bit of lace along the pocket edge.
Here are the rest of the bibs - a total of 5 for a very special lady.
This purple one has a machine applique in the center.

I enlarged the monogram for this green one.
The thread color is mint green.

This one has a machine applique 'H' using the same fabric as for the ruffle.

Empty Pumpkin Loader

This design is the 'pumpkin loader' design without the pumpkins. 
The name is covered since this will be a gift for a baby boy on the way.
