My Version of a "Taggie"

Here is my version of a Taggie blanket.
This one measures 15" x 19" not including the ribbons.
There are 16 satin ribbon loops in light pink, hot pink, yellow,
and a white with pastel footprint pattern.
Fabric is minky dot (on both sides).

I have enough of the pink minky to make another one of these. If anyone would like to order one, please email me.  I can use same or different ribbon colors.  I can do a 3-letter monogram as shown or one name.  $20.00 plus shipping costs if applicable.

Getting a Jump on Easter

I just finished this Easter outfit for my great niece, Payton.

The 'chocolate' bunny is a machine applique using brown minky dot.
The bloomers are also made from brown minky dot.
I added a fabric ruffle to the bloomers and the T-shirt sleeves.

An Easter Baby

I thought this would be an appropriate design for a baby
who is due around Easter.

and her name will be Kimberly.

The bibs came from Target and have a velcro closure.

Cowgirls & Indians

This year our Ladies Retreat theme is 'Cowgirls and Indians'. 
Andrea wants to be an Indian, so we needed a quick Indian girl costume.
I made a quick t-shaped tunic out of un-bleached sheeting.
(Thanks Lanier-Carter Mill!)
Then I found this beaded trim and brown fleece in my sewing stash.

This is the finished dress, well not really.....
I still have to finish the hem-fringe after she tries it on.

Hope she doesn't go on the war-path!!!
