At least, that's how the Cajuns around here say "Go!" Well I'm back!! Did ya miss me? I have been a sewing fool lately! Sew much to do, and sew little time! On the right is an order for a little girl's 1st birthday outfit! As you can see, the parents are CRAZY for them Tigers!! This is actually a "make up" order. Around this time last year, a proud GrandMa put in a request for an LSU quilt and two pillowcase dresses. I found out about 6 months later, that the dresses didn't fit!! After apologizing profusely, then "yelling" at them for not saying something sooner, at which the response was, "but they were just so cute"!! Really? I have the sweetest customers....but if I buy something that doesn't fit, you can bet I would be asking for my $$ back...or at least an exchange!!! So that is what I told them, then asked what they would like as a "make up" order? This was it!! Pretty cute, huh? So the moral of this story is.... Custom order or not, if it is not what you want or doesn't fit.....please let me know!!
Here is an up close look at the crown front:
And the back of the crown.
Another reason I was kinda upset that the ladies never said anything about the dresses not fitting sooner, is that through them, I've gotten many orders! They are so sweet, and really "spread" the word of my creations. I made a quilt for a baby boy a while back that they gave as a shower gift. The grandmother of said baby loved it so much, that she promptly put in an order for her other grandson. Here is his quilt:
Because of all of the wonderfully talented quilters I follow, Amy, Marguerite and Allie to name a few, I have been trying to make more of an effort to actually LINE up my squares!! I think I am getting a tiny bit better at it!! I did the middle applique a little different this time, going down instead of across.
Here is a picture of the back, as you can see, I don't actually "quilt" my quilts. I know it is hard to see in my pictures. I will try to work on getting better photos. It is pretty sad since I have a really good camera and use Photoshop! My friend Melanie gives a good explanation on how to get "good" pictures. And she makes AWESOME Polymer Clay creations. I am going to be getting something that my Momma is going to FLIP over this Christmas....ssshhhh Daddy, it is a surprise!! Anyway, I like a more "comforter" type quilt, so that is how I started making my quilts. Maybe one day I will venture into the actual free motion aspect of quilting.
Well, I'm back to sewing....until my LIST is cleared, I will be a busy girl!! I did, however, finish my girls' jammies for Sew Mama Sew's September sew-along, and check out WHO they featured.....some of my Sweeties!! Way to go, girls!! I am just waiting for Ms. Priss to get home from school to try hers on! I'll post soon!! Until later.....
