I ordered this custom stamp recently from Staples. I think it was $13. I read about making your own custom labels on Pink Stitches in March and thought it was a great idea. It worked wonderfully and is so much cheaper than ordering them on etsy, but looks more handmade (which I happen to love).
You can read the tutorial on Pink Stitches but you just need fabric paint, a plastic lid, piece of felt, custom stamp, and ribbon or scrap fabric. It was really easy and fun!
I grabbed my bag of scrap fabric and went to town.
There's going to be mess ups but it's no big deal.
Here are all the pretty labels sewn into my bandanna skirts.
No, I haven't been busy. Not at all. Only appliquing 32 onesies, 72 shirts and sewing 6 bandana skirts. These are all for an amazing ranch in Wyoming. It was really fun to do! I had free reign so I did horseshoes, stars, guitars, horse heads, and cowboy boots in whatever fabric I wanted!!!!
Here are the onesies..... Cowboy boots
Guitars with button detail.
Stars. More to come with shirts and bandana skirts!
Here's an easy birthday gift to make. We had our friend, Cooper's, birthday party this past weekend and I had everything I needed on hand. I buy plain shirts when they're on sale so I have a bunch of sizes to choose from. Cooper's dad plays ice hockey so this material was perfect!
Applique the C onto the shirt by ironing the Therma Bond, then zig-zagging around the edge to secure and add detail. I love how it turned out. Will be making letter shirts for my kids soon. Numbers are also so cute (for their age)!
Tag I made with left over material, then wrote size with a permanent marker. Zig-zag stitched and DONE! Anyone have great custom birthday gift ideas?
Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful, wonderful mom! Thank you for everything you've done for me. We miss you Nana-we'll see you this summer.
I live the life of my dreams with my husband and two little ones, living in Colorado, staying home with them, with a little break to work at my church part time and to do some sewing when I get a moment. My life is full of amazing friends and I'm surrounded by the incredible beauty and sunshine of Colorado. Blessed.
Life is NEVER dull around here.
Sometimes frustrating, tiring, and hard but when I see this face, it just becomes ok.
