I have been searching for pocket squares for weeks. I knew I wanted a variety of patterns. I knew I was going to sew a little something on them. I found these squares at Hugh & Crye. I really liked the fun patterns, and the great price, so I snatched up a bunch of them.
I wanted to make them a gift for the men in the wedding. I cut out some little hearts, and sewed them into the corner of each square. What was once just a pocket square is now a special gift, because I put a little heart into it. (get it??)
I have been making quite a few custom orders lately. I really enjoy the challenge of creating something unique. This scientist bird was a twist on another bird in my shop. It was way too much fun designing a lab coat for a stuffed bird.
….hashtag awesome. I really think my first project as a married woman (still weird to say!) will be making a quilt. I had the urge to start one the other day, but making all these wedding invitations should probably come first. But I am excited to find a fun quilt pattern and get colorful fabric! (Quilts from here and here)
My flame I am drawn to right now is a sewing project. Hand sewing. Its actually kinda obsessive and silly and no one will probably care, but it makes me happy and that’s all that matters, right? I’m just like one of these happy moths, I just can’t resist.
Mighty, mighty elephant. (new in the Little Amaryllis shop)
Little tiger is ready to do some real fierce lovin. (new in the Little Amaryllis shop)
Rawr says the ferociously cute yellow lion. (new in the Little Amaryllis shop)And coming soon, the lion’s bff.
I made a special grey and white deer for a custom order. I really like how he looks like he is in black and white. What a fun addition to a colorful or neutral room!
Every weekend, I say that I am going to hem these 4 pairs of pants (because I am tiny). Yesterday, I finally sat down and did it. There is something very freeing about changing up clothes, probably because it feels like you shouldn’t be cutting or sewing them. I even hemmed some bright pink-orange pants with turquoise thread.
But wait for the best part! I found a pair of pants that the cut was a little out of style, but the top still fit great. So I cut them into jean shorts! Most gratifying project I have done in a long time, since it was 75 degrees and sunny yesterday, so I got to wear them while we ran a couple errands in the afternoon.
My 6-year-old self really wants to decorate them with puff paint, like the awesome shorts I had back in the day…
