Now that it’s October I’m officially thinking about costumes for my kids (if I try to get them ready before October, it’s guaranteed that at least one child will change his/her mind and end up hating the costume I’ve prepared). With my thoughts on dressing up I especially love these masquerade masks that Yvonne has made!
Not only would these amazing masks compliment a Halloween costume, but how awesome would they look for group dance routines, or daddy daughter dates? And as Yvonne says, they’re a great way to use small pieces of fabric and feathers…and glitz. (And she recommends you use heavy stabilizer, meant for handbags.)
Make your own masquerade mask using our easy embroidery design!
Cooler weather has arrived (at least in my part of the world it has). And the best way to combat the first autumn chills? A scarf. But you can’t have just one – you need one for each outfit in your wardrobe! So why not check out these six awesome DIY scarf ideas and stock up before it gets too nippy outside.
Check out the awesome tutorials for each of these scarves:
You know the wedding saying: “Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue”. How cute is this for the “something blue” part?
Thanks to Paulette Gollan for the awesome idea!
There’s nothing cuter than a pair of ruffled socks showing above your boots, but they can be insanely expensive. I just don’t see the need to spend all that money when a pair of regular socks and a little bit of trim can capture the same look. Especially when they’re so simple to make.
Here’s how you can make your own pair:
We love these holiday towels submitted by Blythe Dorris. With multiple holidays in the near future, I think everyone should have their own set of towels!
You can get the embroidery designs in our shop: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, 4th of July, and Valentine’s Day. Plus lots of great other holiday designs.
Today was particularly cool in my neighborhood, which got me thinking about fall. Mostly I thought about how my house needs a new wreath to hang on our door to celebrate all things autumn. I’ve narrowed my thoughts to these five fall wreaths:
This week we have a couple of projects using the same Princess Crown Applique design. They are both so cute that we had to show off both!
Every baby princess needs a bib like this one made by Bonnie Ricciardo. And who wouldn’t absolutely LOVE this customized tutu from Crystal Small?
They make me want to dress all the little girls of the world.
Lucky is the little girl that gets to wear these adorable customized rompers.
These were made by Kathy Dykstra, using our Jennifer Monogram Set, and are summer perfected. The ruffles alone are enough to make a girl’s day.
Look at these adorable matching circus t-shirts that Ashley Karr made using our Big Top Circus Tent design.
They would be perfect for siblings or cousins. Like say you’re having a circus themed family reunion – everyone would need a shirt like this with their name on it. And this would be the ultimate thank you gift for guests at a circus themed birthday party!
If there’s one thing I can never get enough of during the summer it’s ice cream. But sometimes a girl just needs a little more than soft serve on a cone, you know? Sometimes I want my ice cream to be daring and adventurous…..or at least a little bit more stimulating.
