So, I've been sewing for a while now and really enjoy it. I'm not super great, and I tend to stick to simple things, like blankets, pillowcase dresses, hemming things, and replacing buttons. I have a lot of fun doing it, and I always look for new ideas of things to try.

Well - I like to have names stitched into things, especially new baby gifts and it gets pricey to take your item down to an embroider and have a name put on it.......sooooo........I splurged and bought my own embroidery machine!! It came via UPS on Friday afternoon and I had SO much fun playing with it ALL weekend! I have downloaded new fonts and designs online and can't wait to try them all out. Maybe I'll start a little embroidery business.... ;) Here is a bit of what I did this weekend.
My practice scrap fabric
still learning to "applique" - I didn't cut enough zebra fabric off....
Blanket I made and personalized!!
Onsie to match Boy Set
Bib to match boy set

Burp rag to match boy blanket
"girl" set I made & personalized.
Onsie for Kyndel
I got my colors screwed up, so a blue monkey it is LOL
Super Cute Sports Letters


  1. Love, love, LOVE it!!! You are so talented! I know Kyndel, but who are Kaden and Lily Kay?

  2. Love it!!! Man- I need to invest in one of those! You were super busy this weekend

  3. I have more than a few friends all pregnant right now, so those are the ones that have chosen names for their babies so far. I have been busy, but its been so much fun! My little cousin is a middle school cheerleader and I'm hoping once they get their duffel bags in, I can put their names on them for them...we shall see!


    I need the info on your machine.... I have looked into getting one for like 3 years now!
    Its a joke that I will put my kid's name on anything/ everything...
    but its an instant cute way to spiff up boy stuff!

    Text me or email me the info, if you don't mind!
