In all its glory

What does a girl have to do to get a sunny non-overcast day around here. I have been waiting to take pictures of my latest project until the lighting was just right. Alas I just can't wait any more.
So here it is in all its glory...the thing you have all been waiting for...the question that possibly ruined your holidays because you just could not stop thinking, "what in the world are all of those yoyos for?"


Wait no more!


It's a quilt. I finished it just in time for the holidays.







So what do you think?

NEW! The Shirlene Holiday Baby Shoe

I made this shoe in honor of my Grandma who LOVED the holidays!


Christmas was the most speical of holidays. From to the ornaments, each with one of her grandchildern pictured on them, to the english toffee, banana jazz, pumpkin rolls, and all of our presents stacked around her huge pinon Christmas trees. We loved spending our Christmas with Grandma Davis! Every year I look forward to the memories that Christmas brings.

Oh So Sweet!!

This is why I LOVE doing custom orders!!

I'm still in the process of finishing this, but could not wait to post it. More pictures of the finished baby shoe to come!!

Sneak Peek



Just a little peek at what I'm working on...

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

What you've been waiting for

I'm officially open again!!

I can't wait to show you all of the new stuff I have been working on!! Be sure to check my etsy site for a ton of new changing sets. Some of them are one-of-a-kind so be sure to get yours fast. At $30.00 I think they would make the best baby shower gift or even Christmas gift.

Here it is, my secret project. Ok, not so secret, but new and fun!! A couple of months ago my friend Annie told me about a carrier cover that her sister-in-law had. She thought it was great and suggested that I add them to my shop. I loved the idea! However, after researching carrier covers they all seemed to be exactly the same! They were all basically a blanket with ties to hold it onto the handle of the carrier. My whole objective here is to have something original so I kind of put the carrier cover on the back burner. Then, I got a request from a previous client to make a carrier cover for her new little baby. This lit the fire again.

So here it is... The Carrier Canopy



I'm in love with it! It has everything that I would want. In fact it makes me excited to have another baby just so I can use it. No, that was in no way an announcement!

**The Canopy is held on securely with elastic around the front and back. This will be especially useful on those windy days. No longer will you be chasing your blanket or having your little bundle of joy choke in the wind when your old carrier cover flaps in the breeze.**


**The Canopy is held onto the carrier with loops made of coordinating fabric and easily attached with Velcro. This allows you to still use the loop your arm around the handle methood of carring the car seat.**


One of my favorite features is this little "window". This makes it easy to check on your little Sleeping Beauty, or Sleeping Handsome as the case may be. Again, this is held down with Velcro.


You think I'm done don't you? I mean what else could this amazing Carrier Canopy possibly offer?!

WELL...

The Carrier Canopy is COMPLETLY REVERSIBLE!!!


Yep!! How great is that!?!

So what becomes of the velcro on the outside and the loops on the inside when you flip it?

This little button is actually attached with velcro and can be used as a cover for the piece of Velcro you are not using.

As for the loops...they become toy holders for the baby on the inside. What little one would not love that?

So there it is my new Carrier Canopy.  It is a must have for the cold/flu/RSV season. Not to mention just a good thing to keep your baby out of the elements. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Tomorrow I will be posting two new bootie designs for your viewing pleasure.

Vacation!!

Hey all. I will be on VACATION!! Yeah for a much needed family trip. I'll let you know when I'm back, but until then get excited for a bunch of new stuff coming November 8th!!

Black and White

This is a new custom order I had. I love how it turned out! My first thought when presented with these fabrics was to put the print on the outside. But it was requested that the print be on the inside with a plain black on the exterior. How classy!! I love it! There is also a picture of the new diaper cases I started making (also a request for this order). Thanks for your order B! Let me know what you think of it!!

P.S. I don't know what it is but it looks like the blacks are not the same color. They are. I don't know how to fix it in the pictures though.

New additions

Here they are Lesley!!





Lesley won my latest contest and these are the booties for her soon to be new little grandson! His name will be Hayden so in honor of him and his grandma the baby shoe on the left is now has a name "The Hayden Baby Shoe". What about the one on the right you ask...say hello to "The Hudson Baby Shoe". I know "The Tate Baby Shoe" is still a work in progress, but it will look much like "The Hudson" just like in real life.







So Congratulations again Lesley! Enjoy that soon to be new grandson and his new baby shoes!!

Introducing & Thank you

The Liliana


Congratulations Whitney and Juan!!

I made these little booties for baby Liliana who was born just a week ago! I think they make the perfect little blessing shoe. I don't have any pictures of her to post, but she is so beautiful! She has a TON of dark long hair. Nothing is cuter than a baby with lots of hair!


A HUGE thank you to my good friend Melody. She is so talented. When I told her that I wanted something cute to ship my little booties in she told me that she would work on something. I was picturing just a plain old little box that I could tie a ribbon around or someting. This is SO much better!!





How cute do they look in this adorable box?! She even made a clear lid so you can see what is inside!

I LOVE the boxes Mel! Thank you so much!

Monday morning Q&A

Hi everyone! I have been getting a lot of questions lately so I thought I would just answer them all in one post.
Q: "How much did you charge for that?" Meaning the little version of the Dolly Popper Bag.
-Chelsie
A: The Alice in Wonderland bag was actually kind of expensive since all of the fabric had to be custom ordered. It cost $85.00. I would normally charge 62.00 for this bag.
 
Q: Are the booties fabric on the bottom too or do they have some sort of sole on them??
-Lindsay
 
A: I can do either. After messing with a few different non-slip options I finally came up with a cute and functional way to do it. So when you order just specify which way you would like them.
 
Q: Can you do a zipper on the Dolly Popper Bag?
-Lindsay
 
A: Unfortunately, I do not do zippers. I will however do a button with a loop for the closure. I will have a picture of this next week to show you.
 
Q: Are you currently interested in doing any consignment work?
 
A: At this point I am not. Things are about as busy as I dare let them get. It is something I may consider after the holiday season though. And thanks for the offer.
 
Q: Do you sell your patterns?
 
A: I am not selling my patterns as of now. I don't know if it is something I will think about in the future, but if I do I'll keep you posted.
 
Q: Why did you pick the names you did for all of your booties?
 
A: This is a fun one for me. The booties I have done so far are the names of all my nieces and nephews. "Wow, that is a big family!" is that what you are thinking. Yep, it is and I am so blessed to have them all!
 
Ok, I think I got them all. If you have any questions leave them in the comments and I'll answer them next Monday. If you need an answer soon just let me know the best way to get a hold of you.

Gift Certificates

I received an e-mail today asking about gift certificates. It is something I have thought about for a while. I just was not sure if people would be interested. She answered my question so I did it. So, if you are just not sure what the person you are buying for would want how about a gift certificate!

On my sidebar you will see a button to buy a gift certificate. You can choose any amount in $5.00 increments. Once you purchase the gift certificate you will be able to print it off or if you are not near the person you want to give it to you can even e-mail it to them. They then can use it to purchase anything on my etsy site. If they want to do a custom order with it that is also no problem.

Thanks N for the little push I needed!
I will be choosing the winner of the giveaway tomorrow so if you haven't signed up already you better hurry!

The cutest bag I ever saw!!

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a lady who wanted me to make a smaller version of the Dolly Popper bag for her 2 year old to take to day care with her. She had the fabric all picked out and I just had to order it. The exterior fabric is from Japan and I am in love with it. I am thinking about ordering some more for me!! Inside the bag is Amy Butler, my favorite!! I had some left over scrapbook ribbon I got while we were in Colorado. I love this ribbon and have been saving it for something really special. I was actually sad to use it on a bag I would never see again, but it went so well that I could not resist!!










I even made Hudson try on the bag. He was not so sure!!


Don't forget to enter the drawing! I'll pick a winner soon!!!


9/1/09--- I just recieved this feedback on my etsy site from the cute girl that ordered this bag.
"I received my custom Dolly Popper Bag and absolutely love it! This is by far the cutest & functional bag I have found for my daughter's preschool. The bag definitely shows high quality craftmanship. I will highly recommend this vendor to my family & friends!"
