Great Idea For Personalized Bib

Recently, a customer emailed saying she needed an order processed quickly because she wanted to use it for a birthday party. I thought, "What a great idea!". She was planning to use the personalized bib on a stuffed bear as the centerpiece on the party table. Immediately, ideas started popping into my brain and I started visualizing  this as the centerpiece at a baby shower or the main part of a gift basket. Fun! The next time I had an order for a personalized bib, I put it on a bear and took a picture to show you. Below, you will see our Pink Minky Bib by Mud Pie on our Bliss Bear by Melissa & Doug.

Adorable! The bib is stitched in Font 23 in hot pink thread. I think Mrs. Bear looks stunning in her personalized bib and is ready for any occasion.

Personalized Leg Warmers

As many of you know, I purchased a new 6 needle embroidery machine back in the fall. Since then I have been "collecting" different frames for the machine. As with most things, the right accessories produce the best results. While my grandson  -yes, I said grandson. I may be older in age but not in spirit- was here a few weeks ago, he was playing with inventory as I was trying to count inventory. He loved pulling the legwarmers out of the basket.

As I was putting them back in the basket, Max and I decided he needed a pair of the Fire Truck Leg Warmers by BabyLegs and it would look cute to try to stitch his name on them. Here is the result:

I think they look really cute so this option will be added to the website soon! Let me know what you think! Adorable leg warmers and socks can be found here

Hair Bow Project For My Niece

It took me a while but I finally finished a set of monogrammed hair bows for my niece. Since I've been making hair bows for a LONG time, you would think this would be a easy for me. It was always easy for me to make bows out of double face satin ribbon but I was having a hard time getting my bows made with grosgrain ribbon to look perfect. After looking at online videos and talking to a friend of mine, I think I have mastered the technique. My friend, Beth, has always been very generous to share her wealth of information and you can find her great creations in her Etsy store here .

My niece loves her new hair bows. Hopefully, I can get her mom to send me a picture soon to post with my precious niece wearing one of her bows!
