Jessie Loves Woody!

We can't wait for the latest Toy Story movie hits the Big Screen! Of course we needed a set to wear to the premiere, and this is perfect! I'll make a 4th of July tee later, and Emily can wear the skirt with that too! Nothing like Mix and Match pieces!
Of course Emily decided Chrissa needed a matching set too! She even found a little hat for her to wear ;)
Pictures were taken at The Westland Historical Village.

Can't forget about Chrissa!

Join us in Underland!

We absolutely LOVED the new Alice in Wonderland movie! I knew I HAD to make a set featuring the new re-stylized characters! To say this set was a labor of love would be an understatement! I've had this in the planning stages for months. I could never decide on the perfect fabrics, and I bought at least 3 different lines of fabric before stumbling upon these gorgeous fabrics. I loved using denim in the design too.
And my most favorite thing of the whole set is without a doubt the adorable mini top hat! I knew I had to make a top hat to go with this set (especially since my model refuses to wear bows!!) So here it is! And you can find it on here on ebay too.

Another Sneak Peek!!

I'm having so much fun designing this set!! Emily loves it and she insisted on a matching hat. Ummmm...I've never made a top hat and really had no idea how to. Luckily I found a handy dandy pattern and came up with this...

I can't wait to take some modeled pictures!!

Lovin' La Vida

Oh, how I love the Vida! It's versatile, comfy and just plain adorable. I sometimes agonize over fabric choices for it, then all of a sudden it all comes together and I love the outcome!! Use lots of different fabrics and fun trims to make it fun and funky, or just a few of your favorites for something sweet and simple. I've even figured out a pattern for 18 inch dolls!
I'll be honest though, when I first saw the Vida I didn't like it. I had to put my own spin on it to fall in love with it. It's now my "go to" pattern. Perfect for BIG appliques, and I just love it worn as a tunic with jeans. Awesome for layering and adorable with leggings and a tee. Ahhhh, how I love the Vida :)

I can't wait to get started on my newest Vida creation - I wonder what it will be??

I'm still trying to get back in the swing of things after the Holidays. The kids are back in school, and I guess it's time for me to get back to sewing ;) 2009 was a great year for me. My customers were Fabulous and very loyal. I hope 2010 is just as fun, and I'm hoping to knock out some super fabulous sets, for both boys and girls!! I've already got the first set of 2010 planned, now I just need to get going on it!! Here's to an AWESOME start to 2010!!
