Dolly and things.

This is the first thing that I have made with my new sewing machine. It is going to a little girl, Izzy, for her 1st birthday. I swear to you that I am the supplier for birthday gifts for my friend Jill. And I am telling you that her kids get invited to more birthday parties than I know people on this planet. She loves to give handmade gifts and I love to supply them. Plus it gets my name out there. *hint*hint* I make custom super hero capes and tutus too! That reminds me! I have some pics of the custom capes I made for the holidays--------> here they are.
And I am also going to leave you with a pic of the dolly Alice and I made on Sunday night. She picked out the fabric and stuffed the body parts. I surprised her with a little tutu for her dolly. She has slept with it every night since.

Fabdynasty Designs

I have to show off a hand made, one-of-a-kind gift I received for Christmas. My very best childhood friend was home for Christmas from Charleston, South Carolina. We stopped exchanging gifts a million years ago so I was really surprised when she handed me a gift. I knew that she had started painting again but had no clue that she was making jewelry. Here it is! A fun and funky design with happy colors. You can't be sad wearing this set......and it makes me think of her. Clink on her business card and it will take you to her blog, where you can see more of her beautiful paintings.

Happy Day

I FINALLY have gotten myself a new sewing machine! I sewed my butt off over the last few months making items for sale for others for the holiday. Instead of putting the money in saving like I usually do, I decided that I had had it with my dumb, 10 year old Kenmore! I wanted to throw it against the wall while I was sewing a cape for a friend of mine. The tension had made me mad for the last time. I got my self the Singer Confidence 7467, and what a beauty it is. I haven't tried to make something with it yet, (I have been too busy with work) but I am so excited!!!! I think this will give my items a more professional look and will speed up my tun-out time. Can you tell I am sooooo excited!!
