Sewing For One

Well, I am now just sewing for one, or maybe 2 or 3.  But I am no longer sewing to earn extra adoption money.  I have not actually sold a dress in a long time but I have removed the ordering buttons, today.  I made the decision to officially stop taking any orders this weekend.  I was sewing a dress for Chloe while Jim was playing with her in the other room.  It felt really good to be able to be sewing again but I felt that if I was sewing for anyone other than Chloe, especially someone I didn't know I would start to resent sewing and I don't want to do that.  Sewing is an escape for me and I love it but since I will be going back to work next week I want to be able to spend my extra time with Chloe!

I may still take a few special request orders and I hope to make a few special gifts but other than that the sewing shop is closed.  

I might just use this blog to showcase my creations.  Since I now have the perfect model!

Excuse the drool we are teething like crazy!

Just a preview of what I was working on this weekend.

Robin at Red Thread Stitches purchased a dress from me for her sweet Mia but there was a battle and her sweet Lauren won! I think she makes the dress, I am sure Mia will also.
Robin has a great post about helping other adoption families when you are Christmas shopping on her blog so be sure to check this out.

I have not had any orders in a while and while a break is good, we need to earn some extra money to bring home our baby! So I decided to just go ahead and make up a couple of things and so if you have been just itching to order but did not know when the right time was, it is now! Here is what I have done recently.

Please check out this auction set up by Robin at Red Thread Stitches, if you are interested in this outfit below, I have donated it to help Little China Flower, a great charity.

I have had some requests for little pants or bloomers to wear under dresses, so I made a couple of items this weekend. I can make in light pink or white. The pink fabric has tiny white flowers on it and this pair is trimmed with white eyelet or can have a standard rolled hem. The white fabric has tiny white flowers and can be trimmed in white eyelet as shown or with a standard rolled hem.


$26 with eyelet trim

$20 without eyelet trim

$5.00 shipping

If you want to combine shipping with any other order please Email Me before you order so that I can adjust the invoice. I can't figure out how to do that with the buttons, sorry.

Under the Sea 2

Shipping is $5.00 per blanket and $2.50 for each additional blanket. If you want to combine shipping with anything else please let me know.

Good Bye Etsy

I am saying Good bye to my Etsy site. I love Etsy but it just did not work the way I wanted it to for me. I was going to keep my blankets on Etsy and sell dresses and painting from here but I think I am just going to say good bye and put the blankets that I make on this site. So in the next couple of weeks look for more blankets to show up on Little Miss's Blankets and Stuff. I will be adding a Pay Pal button for blankets soon but for now just send me an email using the link in the side bar or leave a comment.

I may go back to Etsy at some point and I of course still shop there. It is a great resource for hand made items. I am glad there is a place like that that so if you are looking for something special and it is not here head over to Etsy it is great.

"The Red One" and other paintings.

Cora and I (Jim) are in the process of adopting (As you probably know). To make extra money for the adoption she is making and selling dresses and blankets(See posts below). As my part in this endeavor I am offering up some of my paintings for sale.

These are acrylic paint on quality canvas. I finish them with a UV-resistant clear protective coat that should give them a long life. The canvasses I choose are stapled on the back, which allows them to go on the wall unframed. It also allows edge effects. Each one is an original. Each one is unique. I enjoy creating them and I feel art should be affordable.

"The Red One" SOLD!This one is sold, but if you would like something similar please email me I would love to paint you a custom space ship!! Don't hesitate to personalize your child's room
The first one is called "The Red One." It is inspired by one of my favorite childhood comic strips: Calvin and Hobbes. If you have a boy who loves space or has an adventurous side, this will be a perfect one for you. Since there is only one of each, the first person who orders it gets it.

note: edges.

Size:7.75"X 24"X 1.25"
Price: $50.00 plus $5.00 shipping in the continental US.
(I will ship elsewhere, but shipping charges may vary)

"Dragon Flies Gather"
Inspired by a family friend's love of dragon flies, this painting has three dimensional details. The wings actually have ridges where the veins are. This painting is one that continues to draw my eye three weeks after putting it on the wall. I employed a unique technique to attain the background, which includes tinfoil and luck.

Size: 11" X 14" X 0.75"
Price: $40.00 plus shipping.

"E is for..."SOLD!This "E" is sold, but I can make more!! Don't hesitate to personalize your child's room!
This is a monogram for a girl or young lady. I will accept requests for different letters and themes. I can make several of these custom to your little (or big) ones taste or decor.

Size: 8" X 8" X 1.25"
Price: $25.00 plus shipping.

"Lady Bug"
Because the Lady Bug is a common theme in the China Adoption scene, and we are also adopting from China, I submit this attempt which would be perfect on that little girl's wall. I plan to do more of these with different background colors.

Size: 8" X 10" X 0.75"
Price: $25.00 plus shipping.

If you have any suggestions for paintings you would like to see me try I am willing to give anything a go except for portriats.

To order either leave a comment on this post or Email the link above.
