I had a very productive week. I made a cellphone case for a returning customer to match the shopping cart cover and plush ball that I made her earlier.
I made two pillow covers for an Etsy client with a custom order that turned out fabulous!
I also made three custom art rolls: a crayon roll for "Stella", a colored pencil roll for "Summer" and a marker roll for "Logan". I LOVE making these; it is sooo much fun to play with the different fabric combinations and to come up with ways of personalizing each one to the child receiving it! Stella is getting a colorful crayon roll using the Very Hungry Caterpillar fabric with an applique
heart. Summer is getting a custom crayon roll featuring a Michael Miller print with monkeys doing yoga and her brother, Logan, is getting a marker roll featuring pirate sculls with an appliqued jolly roger symbol.
Coming up, I will be finishing a retro-style full apron in blue and gray. I will also be framing a dress...my husband's 97 year old grandmother was going through some things the other day and came across a handmade dress that she wore when she was about 5 years old. This dress is absolutely beautiful!!! I am waiting for fabric to be delivered that I will use for the background and the dress will be mounted on that. I will post pictures as soon as it is complete.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and you were all able to look around you at the abundance of things to be thankful for; sometimes it takes a holiday to truly examine our lives and see all that we "have".
