I promised a giveaway when I reached 10 followers....however, one of them is ME! :)  So tell your friends, and I will get my creative juices flowing.  Also, I can't post pictures of my giveaway because my camera will not hold a charge :(, so it will have to wait a couple days until I can get this figured out! :)

New pair of shoes, color rolls and lots of gifts/orders!!

I finally was able to sew for gifts instead of orders (though that only put me behind on orders!) :).  I had 2 baby showers I needed to sew gifts for this weekend, so I got busy!  I made 2 pairs of shoes out of this cute fabric remnant I purchased, as well as a minky backed blanket for one of them. 

If you'd like a similar set, please do a custom order here.

I also tried a new thing: I had a plain white onsie, and I double needle sewed a heart (backed with fusible interfacing) onto it, hoping that with each wash it will fray around the edges.  I can't wait to see how it looks in a few months ;).  Here it is:

I will be making this a custom item soon, when I get more white onsies.

I have also been adding color rolls (to keep in purse/diaper bag) to my site.  Here are pictures of a few I have for sale or have sold:

Sold to a friend:

2 for sale here and here:

I've still been whipping out the color aprons for gifts and purchases as well.  Here is a picture of one gift (I made 2 for 2 little girl birthday parties) and it went over great, she loved it!! :)

And here are some custom christmas orders and baby shower gift orders I've completed recently:

Nursing cover and matching shoes:

and a little boy apron/chef's hat:

If any of these appeal to you, please contact me at mistysblessings [at] yahoo [dot] com and I can crank something out! :)

Coming up with new items

I definitely didn't INVENT the color apron. I actually saw one of Cara's good friends get one for her birthday last month, and thought that would be a GREAT thing to make and sell!  My sweet friend Michelle was kind enough to let me borrow Ashlyn's new apron and I got to make my own patterns.  I changed a couple things, and am continuing to tweak it every time I make one.  I've made 4 and sold 3 so far (thanks to an old high school buddy that found me on facebook and wanted some at the exact time I was ready to start making them!!).  I actually have a color roll I'm about to make too....perfect for mom of toddlers to keep in their purse/diaper bag to keep your little ones busy at waiting rooms or restaurants....I can't wait to share those with you.  In the meantime, here are some pictures of some of the color aprons I've made:

I've also gotten back into knitting (well, that was until I sliced my hand open, but when I get my stitches out, I plan to do some more!), and I've made a couple of little baby hats that I've listen on MB on etsy as well.  Check out these (with my cute models!) :)
