New in '09

Wow! There's a lot of new stuff at Sew Personal for 2009! From sippy cups and travel mugs to checkbook covers and cute little clothes! I keep finding things that I can't resist adding to my selection. I've also added some new appliques and fabrics! This slideshow is a peak at what's new. Of course, all items include a monogram even if the picture doesn't have a monogram yet! For pricing and more info, visit the Sew Personal website and click on "New Items". I've also created a slideshow of new fabrics I'm offering. Most of these have not been added to my website yet just because I haven't had time. If you see one you like, just let me know! They are all fair game!

January Projects

We Did It!

My mom and I finally finished an outfit -- together! I wanted to do this with her so she could start teaching me some sewing basics. (I really only do the machine embroidery and don't know much at all about sewing.) I saw this fabric a couple of months ago, LOVED it, and knew right away Evynne had to have some pants made of it. Mom showed me how to cut out the pattern and fabric and although she did most of the sewing, I did do a little. Baby steps! Anyway, when I arrived at her house today she had completely finished the pants so I got right on the machine and did the top to match! It's been sitting there a while waiting for me to have a minute to do it. Girl mamas, don't get too excited, I don't plan to start making these pants to sell. However, I can match many popular fabrics and at the very least, find a coordinating fabric. So, if you have some pants, you can just bring them to me and I can do the top to match! I'll have to get some pictures of Evynne in this outfit to post and really show it off!

My nephew is coming!

So, it looks like my nephew is going to be arriving within the next week or so and I am SO excited to meet him! My sister (Erin) and her husband (Erich) have not decided on a name for sure, but they are leaning toward Ethan. It sure is hard to do a lot of gifts for your nephew when he is nameless! However, I managed to get a start on a few things and couldn't resist putting Ethan on one thing -- hoping for the best! Here are a few of the things for Baby Dawson that I've done so far. There will be many more!
