Infant Car Seat Headrest Insert

A friend of mine needed an insert for her infant daughter’s car seat. The plastic one that came with the car seat caused her daughter to sweat all the time. I created this headrest from a quilted cotton fabric using the plastic one as a pattern. It works great and “Dani” is a happy little girl.

Baby Diva Lilac Nursery

This baby’s mom had most of her nursery purchased already and just needed a few items to tie it all together. I made a beautiful diaper bag of lilac satin and a matching quilt. (There was also a window treatment, no photo available).

Sweet dreams!

I made this beautiful christening gown from my sister's wedding dress for her first grand baby. By the way, I made the original wedding dress for my sister and hesitated to cut into it when she came to me with the idea. After finishing the gown I told her I had enough fabric to make two or three more, hint, hint!!

Miss Olivia slept through the entire ceremony, but we have memories to keep forever!

What's Cooking?

Cook in fashion with custom made aprons. Have a favorite color or maybe you’re trying to match it to your kitchen? I made all my sisters and girlfriends aprons for Christmas last year and they were a big hit!  I can help with fabric and trim selections and what a great way to compliment the cook in your house with his and hers aprons.

Get your orders in now before the holidays!!!

Wedding Dress Bustle

Bustle your wedding gown and enjoy an evening of care free dancing without the hassles of stepping on your dress. The bustle on this dress took eight attachments to bring it up off the floor. I also shortened the dress hem by detaching the lace trim and replacing it by hand.

The mother of the bride said it was a beautiful wedding and her daughter made a beautiful bride!

Uniforms and Letter Jackets

Need a patch sewn on a letter jacket or scout uniform? Or maybe you need alterations done on a school-borrowed uniform without altering the original uniform? Some schools only lease out their uniforms for the year but alterations still need to be made. I can alter the uniform without cutting into the original piece making it easy for the next person who may need to wear it.

Bring me all your school needs and I'll fix you up in time for the big game or that overnight campout!

Expect the best for your little one!

Expecting someone new in your household? Get the little one's room customized with your own colors. Diaper stacker, bedskirts, bumper pads and more. Pick your fabric and I'll make your perfect dream nursery. Don't have a clue as to what fabrics work well together? I can also assist in choosing fabrics and colors

Wedding Gowns and Sew Much More

I recently got a thank you note from this bride saying that she wished everyday was her wedding day so she could wear her dress over and over again. I used fabric from her mother's wedding veil to make her the perfect veil for her special day. The bride wanted to add pink to her dress so I added an accent pink rose in the center midriff of her dress. I also replaced the while tulle petticoat for a pink one. It was the perfect touch for a beautiful bride and a wedding day that she will remember forever!
