We are so happy to introduce you to Carrie Dickerson! She is one talented lady! She does custom embroidery, monogramming and sewing over at her shop, One Pink Duck. Her work is just beautiful so we were excited to see what she would cook up with 8 days a week. She did not disappoint. She made the little skirt and top set (modeled here by Carrie's sweet niece, Emma, who you may recognize from our Cream and Sugar days). We love the umbrella applique. SO cute! The shorts modeled by Carrie (Kiefer)'s son, Emmett, were also sewn by Carrie (Dickerson). (This is getting confusing to type with all these Carries.) Those two loved jumping around in their polka dot duds. Carrie made the sweet vintage dog toy below as well. Who doesn't love a cute striped Scotty dog? Carrie designed the patterns for the kids' clothes herself and used this pattern for the little dog. Impressive, huh? Thank you, Carrie for your time and amazing work on our pieces! We really appreciate it!

We are so excited to introduce you to Monica Spiehs and her mad sewing and pattern designing skills! We can't even express how lucky we were that Monica volunteered to help us with our sewing projects! She was a rock star taking on so many pieces and designing them as well. We just gave her a few thoughts on what we were looking for and she made them come to life! She made the a-line skirt in the yellow polka dot fabric, worn by Michelle from her own design. Then, she created the little numbers dress with the ruffled sleeves for her own daughter, Lilli. We can't even handle the cuteness of both, the dress and Lilli! Really, are you kidding with how darling that dress and all its little details are (the yellow buttons, the pink top stitching... ahhh!)? Then, there's the baby romper, modeled by sweet Amya! Another dose of sweetness overload, no?! We just loved the ideas Monica had for how to make our fabrics come to life! We are pestering her to start making patterns for the rest of us to use because they are just too good not to be out there in the world! As if those weren't enough amazing projects for her to take on, she did our flag banner as well. So cute for a nursery or kid's playroom, don't you think? Monica: thank you doesn't even cut it. We are so grateful for your talent! Thank you for your time and generosity and for supplying one of our lovely models! We can't even wait to see what Monica is up to next. We are hopeful it includes some patterns for her designs or some kid's clothes!
Madi made the darling headband/ turban modeled by lovely Michelle was created using this pattern. She altered it a bit to include elastic, since our fabric is a quilting weight, and therefore, not stretchy by itself. She used this headband pattern to help her include elastic.
Thank you, Madi, for finding time to help us! We know you have a full schedule, and we really appreciate it!
