Knitty Gritty aka The Haute Tot

This cool shop is run by my friend, Michelle. She is a rockin' mama of two itty bitties, like me, and she knits! When my wee one was born she made this cute outfit for her. Now that my tiny princess is 8 months old it finally fits! We modeled today, and I wanted to give Michelle a nice plug.

Behold the cuteness!

New Boutique Outfit

I've been really working lately on getting a lot of inventory for the Rose Festival Show. I got my confirmation papers for that this week, and got out my new canopy and put it up in the garage, testing it out for the big show. I've got to work on getting the lattice boards treated with paint and new hinges for displaying things under the canopy. My main prodcucts are going to be the hairbows and burp cloths, but I was itching to do some sewing this week so I cut out and new boutique outfit out of some Amy Butler pieces.
It's a reversible pinafore with capris to match, size 12 month. The top is truly reversible, and there are three coordinating prints on each side, and both sides coordinate with each other. If I could figure a way to make the pants reversible (and still cute), I would! I put a bit of black ribbon trim on the pants for fun. SO darn cute! I love making these fun outfits, always knowing if they don't sell (who wouldn't want this!?), I can always put them on my own adorable daughter when she gets bigger. The thing I love most about these pieces are that they are one of a kind, and I will probably never make another exactly like it.

I'll have this and a few others at the show, so come by and see me! And always, I do take custom orders, for size or material. (Or both!)

New Projects

I've been teaching myself how to applique, and my mom taught me how to use the ruffler on my sewing machine. That is my new favorite toy! It makes perfect ruffles everytime and is very easy to use! Here are the photos of some of the new things.
