Things I've been working on: Craftwise

I've been so extremely busy the past month. I signed up to donate items for the Little Black Box, the Purple Box, the Handmade Sampler and lastly, Shopaholic Events. If you are a fellow crafter, you can imagine how I was up to my ears in samples and giveaways. I also made a raffle prize for Shopaholic Events. I made this really cute embroidered onesie. Since I collect vintage sewing stuff, the onesie was made from an embroidery transfer from the 1940's:

I've also received several orders lately. One is for a newborn who lives in Illinois. Since hockey is huge in Illinois, I made a onesie with pink embroidered hockey sticks (I basically find photo's of whatever I am going to put on the onesie and freehand/draw the design onto the front-then I use embroidery thread over the drawing):

I have four additional orders to complete however, am waiting on the items to arrive (I had to order the garments online because I could not find what I was looking for in the store). If anyone reading this is interested in specialty, custom made baby or toddler garments, please contact me. I can pretty much make anything!
