The quickest way for a parent to get a child's attention is to sit down and look comfortable.

Mini-Me Apron Set

As I was surfing the net the other day I came across this really cute tutorial and just have to share. This would make a very cute set for a daughter/granddaughter or whomever…a wonderful item to make for Christmas. I know I am already thinking about next years gifts…are you?

Props to Living with Punks! Enjoy her work…very talented lady! Mini-Me Apron Set…Click Here!

Spring Dress #1

I am in the process of making 4 dresses. One for each of my young ladies. This is dress #1, prepared for little E.  The dress is made of cotton, lined in poly satin. Zippered back with eye-hook at the top. Love the fabric and the blue  really lights up her eyes! I did go by a bought pattern for this dress but altered the size. It was intended for a size 3 or larger, I altered it to a size 2 and made my own flower for the front. I made it detachable…that way it doesn’t get crushed in the wash…and it makes it that much easier when I go to iron the dress. This dress hits about 2″ below her knees. I thought about making it shorter but the way she sits and plays…longer is better.

Had to add this picture. I love it in B&W. Isn’t she adorable? The first picture was taken shortly after this when she dropped the horse and looked back at me with those big eyes. Uh, Oh….she said.

Well, back to the sewing machine. I am already working on dress #2 for big E. 🙂

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

I never know what my kids are going to spring on me. After everyone was in bed last night, J (my 13 yr old) comes in and says “Mom, I don’t have anything green to wear.” (She wore her green shirt yesterday…what was she thinking?) “Please…will you make me a hat? A little top hat would be perfect.”(This is after she asks me…”can you make me a shirt?” In an hour? No way…and no, I will not stay up all night either. haha)

So….at it I went this morning. I got this little hat made in about 45 min. 🙂 After she got it on she said “I look stupid”..but she still wore it to school. LOL. I know C. wanted to take it from her. She was asking “Where’s mine?” Give me more warning…!! 🙂 She said “OK, for my birthday then.” I guess I will be making at least one more hat in the near future.

Hope everyone has a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day! May the Luck of the Irish be with you!

Sew Sensations – Child’s Apron w/Handtowel

I just love this apron! Elastic around the neck, so there are no ties getting tangled in her hair, hand towel…for all those little messes, and a cute little pocket in case she needs to hold a pen or whatever else. 🙂 This would be great made with Cars or Cowboys for my little man. Will have to get to work on that.

If you would like one custom made for your little one, just let me know what fabric patterns you want…(this will vary the cost, depending on how specific you want to get.) Also comes in Reversible – customizable as desired! Apron as shown is $25.00

I can also make matching Mommy & Me aprons!

Sew Sensations – Pink & White Binkie Blanket

Binkie Blanket is created with soft white minky dot on back and flannel/chenille blocks on the front. The attached lacy loop has velcro for easy open and close. It will keep that binkie from getting lost or use with hook to attach to the carseat. It is also handy for when baby gets to walking…curl that finger into it and carry it with them. It is very soft. Measurements: Approximately 14″ by 20″. (This binkie blanket has no decorative stitching on the outside edge… I prefer the feel of it without. It is stitched internally and without the outer stitching it feels extra comfy. It does not need the extra stitching as it is very durable, however, I will stitch to your preference.)

If you want babies details embroidered onto the Binkie Blanket $5 per line…up to 30 characters per line. Applique letters $2 each.

Binkie Blanket: $18

This blanket is made to order just for you and will ship out in approximately 7-14 days. If you need the blanket quicker please contact me for information on a $5 rush upgrade fee.

Sew Sensations – Scripture Case

These were special ordered for Christmas.

This one has a long handle. Like a purse. Made with Re-purposed jeans, Hot Pink Cotton and Black & White Zebra stripe Cotton. Applique on front flap. There is a snap inside the front flap with a pocket to hold papers, pens, etc. You can see in the next picture…the large pocket as well as the small one added from the jeans. The back side of this case was made with the back pocket area of the jeans, so it has that pocket as well.

This next scripture case was made for a special lady. It has a short handle and plenty of room inside for anything that she might want to carry along with her scriptures. Applique on front flap.

This case was made with Re-purposed jeans, Emerald Green Cotton and Paisley Cotton. Inside the front flap I sewed the pocket on this one into sections to create smaller pockets for her highlighters, pens, etc. There was extra room added to the inside of the case for anything else.

Each case that I make can be done with any combination of colors. If you would like to order one please choose your fabric colors and where you want what. This case can be customized to fit you. I will need the measurement of your scriptures, length, height & width. Let me know if you prefer a short handle or long and if you want extra room inside.  These two cases were designed to show some of the inside color when closed. If you would prefer the flap a little longer, I can do that as well. Applique letter of choice included, each extra letter is $2.00. If you prefer a different typeset please specify. Applique can be done in one color or two.

Custom case with Applique $34. Shipping will be flat rate priority mail $4.95.  Please e-mail TCSewSensations@gmail.com with any details. Or you can comment here.

If you have something that you want made, let me know. I take custom orders. I have over 15 years experience sewing.
