New designs

Posted by JTP at 7:41 AM 3 comments
I have added a ton of new designs...Yeah! Some were suggestions of things people saw at Planet Applique, and others are ones I've had and just hadn't used yet. I can't decide what's my new favorite... I love when people ask for a design, don't hesitate :-) I think some of these would be cute in the larger size on a beach towel, or even on a bathroom towel with a name underneath...maybe I'll make some samples this weekend...

The first two are called "Scrolls"- there's fabric appliqued on and then monogram on top. So fun on a onesie or a tee!

This is a plain tee that I used an applique called "Baby Bet"- it's all lowercase and the letters are about 1.5 in tall. I'm trying to make William some "big boy" outfits for the summer- cute shorts and matching tees. I have visions of potty training...I can dream he'll be ready, right? :-) I may start selling shorts- let me know what you think about them.
A new Easter design....
Another tee design- the shark is adorable with the gray gingham underbelly... It matches blue and green check shorts, that's why his name's in green....
A good friend from Windy Gap asked me to make a dress for her daughter's first birthday- it reverses to a pink and white strip with her name in hot pink, and of course I had to do a matching bib to protect the dress from cake time.
I am in love with this alligator. This is what I think I'll put on a towel first. he'd be so cute with hot pink spines!

Isn't this monkey sweet??? How can you not love the gingham feet?This golf cart onesie was a suggestion- the dad's a golf pro. It's hard to tell from the picture, but I must've been channelling my inner Payne Stewart- it's all different colors of ginghams and plaids.The chick is on a pin stripe jonjon for Easter and reverses to a blue plaid with a monogram.
I made this for a student's sister. She's a teen mom and doesn't even have a nursery for the baby- I think all babies deserve sweet things. Hopefully she will spit up joyfully on this burpcloth!And lastly, I just couldn't resist this sweet picture of my little William..... :-)

I have been so busy...thanks to everyone who's passing my name and information along. It's so exciting! I've had a few people ask about monogrammed koozies and guest towels ...i may be adding some other gifts along those lines soon- stay tuned! Here are a few of the many projects I've been up to this week...

New t-shirt designs. (Check out www.planetapplique.com for other designs. I have a large percentage of their designs on hand.) I just love this bunny for Easter. He's so cute in a solid or gingham!

I am head over heels for this new Jack Russell Terrier design. Is he not adorable? My son cried when I gave him away to another baby...I need to make him one asap!

I love this baby set- minky fleece with coordinating appliqued initials. A friend at school had this idea. I think it turned out nicely.
This is for a baby (name unknown) whose parents are die-hard Cleveland Brown's fans... I even found a cute football themed ribbon to wrap it all up in :-)

I made a jonjon similar to this for William's birthday, but think this one is too sweet not to share.
The mom sent me all the fabric and it reverses to a plain blue broadcloth with the baby's name in brown. the cupcake has a corduroy liner and a blue fleece-y icing. yummy! We did a matching bib for the birthday party. I hope they love it as much as I do!

I'm starting to get orders for Easter jonjons and Easter jumpers. Let me know if you need one :-)

New projects

Our snow days are over, but I've been able to manage squeezing in some good sewing time recently. I can't believe how many orders I'm getting for tees and baby stuff- so fun! Thank you!!! Here are a few things I did over the weekend and last week.
Sibling tees/ onesies... The big letter with the name under it have been a huge hit :-)
I love doing baby sets- I thought red for this little guy would be fun and the letter and name below look pretty fun on a burp cloth!

I really like the look of a letter and then the name below it for a bib...Babies should look cute when they're spitting rice cereal back out on you!I'm really liking this new font. It's called "Fine Tip Marker"... the back of the minky bib had more giraffes on it.
After everything's been washed and pressed I just love to wrap them up with a sweet bow.
What a sweet friend! She wanted a baby gift (turtles) and then didn't want to leave the big sister out so she ordered her a tee- fun!
And this is my new favorite applique- the sweet bunny. Maybe I'm dreaming of spring and Easter- won't this be cute on a tee in chocolate brown? Maybe with a pink bow in the bunny's ear for Easter????
