Here I come Monday...look out, I'm gonna take this week and make it the best week ever!

It's like my typical best-seller, toddler bib except there's one very cool new feature. There's a cute little applique on the back side! Check out the pick of the little skull on the back!
I can do it for fabrics that have actual pics in them and just choose a pic to cut out and turn into an applique, OR I can customize it for you! Just pick out a fabric that you like and I'll hand-cut an applique, out of the fabric of your choosing, of the baby's first initial...like "E" for Emma! Cool, huh??
Check out my etsy shop for pricing info or send me an email with custom requests. :) I totally LOVE doing custom work! There's such a sense of satisfaction in sending out a product that I know is a one-of-a-kind and that it's something that my client is TOTALLY going to love!
I LOVE what I do and am so thankful every day that I am able to keep doing it! What a great day!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Every year for my daughter's birthday I make a special shirt for her with the number of the age that she's turning and do something to make it appropriate for what she happens to be into at the time of her birthday. One year, it was Dora, last year it was princesses and this year it was just a simple cupcake appliqued on the front...with a 5 and the words "Birthday Girl" appliqued over the top of it to look like a jersey on the back. Turned out sooooo cute!!
My niece turned 4 last week and her mom asked if I would make a birthday shirt for her. Well, of course I said yes! She wanted it to be wearable for more than just one day though so instead of Birthday Girl over the top of the 4, I did an iron-on transfer over the hand-appliqued 4 to say her name, Mackenzie. It turned out so adorable that I just had to show it off!
My fave part is the 4! I hand appliqued all three layers of the number 4 in all different and fun fabrics. It's quite time consuming but well worth it when you see the finished product...and the excited look on the birthday girl's (or boy's) face!
I absolutely love doing these and have had a few requests for them now, so stay tuned in my etsy baby boutique for some custom order birthday shirts! It seems they're in high demand. :)
