I've Been Monogramming....

...among lots of other things!! Just a quick post to get some pictures off of my camera! I did some Christmas shirts for family...
and a couple of orders...

This is the AWESOME shoulder bag from tiny happy! It is one of my favorite "goto"s!
This bag was for my Momma to give as a gift to a friend. Of course it is SAINTS inspired, but because they have been winning like CRAZY it has been hard to find Saints fabric, so I thought the cheetah in my stash would work!!And some monogramming orders for my friend...
This is the apron I used as a pattern to make the Pre-K Christmas ones.The monogramming is so hard to see. I was trying to match the pink in the ice cream cone, which I didn't do...just the name. I guess white or yellow would have worked much better!
Here are a few gifts I've done for Birthdays last week.

I used the apron pattern again for this one. It is clear vinyl which my serger had a little trouble getting it through...do they make Teflon serger feet??? So the bottom wasn't as straight as it should be. I also used grommets for the first time!! I even have the grommet plier tool kit, but it still took me THREE tries to get it right!! But I really like the effect...hope it holds well!!
Next I had a couple of my "Girls" with birthdays...

OF COURSE we are all COFFEE drinkers!! Gotta have that instant ENERGY to get all of those School projects DONE!! :D I made one more that was really cute, but sadly didn't take a picture..oh well! I am a pretty sad gift giver...in between all of the running last week, I didn't wrap them or anything...just kind of "threw" it at them when I saw them in passing at school functions!! Luckily we have THAT kind of relationship...they throw stuff at me, I throw stuff at them....welcome to the world of BUSY Mommas!! :D Well that is all for now!! I have FOUR days to get things finished....the race is ON!! Until later...

I'm not sure about teflon serger feet, but you could sandwich your layers between sheets of tissue paper. Love the cheetah fabric. I've recently decided that one of these days I'd love to have shoes in a cheetah print. :) Back to the cuffs on the shirt...

L- The shoulder bag, green apron and coffee cups are totally my 'cup of tea'! Everything looks wonderful, as usual, and I am sure was most appreciated too. Your stuff is adorable!

Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Hugs to you and Happy New year!
