Exquisite Eyelet

Sometimes, even though I have other things that I’m working on, I just get an idea that has to take priority.  I have to put other things aside and give the idea creative freedom.

I got this bug the other day.  After about 2 hours of work, this is what came about.

Not only do I absolutely adore this dress, I love that my darling daughter was cooperative enough to model it for me.  It did entail handing out some candy when we came in the house but the pictures made it SO worth it.

Future Expansions

As I’ve hinted at, there are numerous new and exciting things happening here at Stitch To Stitch!

For starters the product line is expanding — I’m working on some adorable sibling sets with a fantastic photographer.  We’ve found a fabulous line of fabrics (Freebird by MoMo — there are more prints that were originally available and I snagged for purchase) that has great prints for both boys and girls.  It’s hard to find great fabrics that are more boyish so I was thrilled when I stumbled upon these.  This project includes some great cargo shorts for little boys and coordinating twirl skirts for little girls!  An initial listing on my Etsy store will be for the set but I will sell the items individually in many different fabrics if requested.  I’ve had many requests for little boy items and am thrilled to be able to list some in the near future.

But the really big news is that Stitch To Stitch is personally expanding.  As in, our family will be welcoming a new addition around the first of the year!  This means many different things, but primarily that you as customers will start to see more itty-bitty baby stuff listed for sale as I hone my sewing skills for my own future needs.

Plus, you might see a promotion in the store to celebrate this good news. Keep your eyes on both the blog and the FB fanpage for more details.  😉
