How gorgeous! The baby quilt reminds me of my own "pink blanket" from days of yore. I can just feel it between my fingers.Not in the market for baby or girl stuff myself, but I'll keep my ears out around church. :-)
Hey Alana! I have a project, and I have been thinking about you, because this project is way beyond me.A couple years ago, I found a cute, simple little modest (unisex) bathing suit for ds. He's outgrown it and now dd is wearing it, but it won't fit her next year. I can't find any similar suits anywhere!! :(So, I've been thinking that this suit is designed fairly simply, I should be able to sew one myself, if, alas, I had a pattern.Soooooo.....would you be interested in making a pattern for me? The catch is, I'd want multiple sizes.....for the kids as they get bigger, but heck, even for myself! I have no idea how difficult a project that would be, but you are the only sewing wizard I know, so I thought at the very least you could give me a reality check, LOL! :)LMK if you are interested! you can email me shebear234 AT gmail DOT com
I love the mantillas you made for me, I may have you make me some napkins, let me kick that around for a bit.
Shebear, see my e-mail to you. Mimi--bring it on! :-)Today I went to the thrift store and bought a sweater to recycle. I'm going to pull it apart and make a nice shawl out of it. The color is a deep, very deep teal/emerald color, and it will go marvelously with either black or brown, my two winter basic colors. My fingers are itching to knit!
I may have you make me a lonngg scarf. I hate wearing hats in the winter. I can never find a scarf long enough to wear over my head and wrap around my neck too.You have been very crafty and handy with a needle for as long as I can remember. I love the works you have shown.Joi
Alana,How much would you charge for a headscarf with a bit of embroidery in the corner (similar to the work in your third photo).And... would you ever consider a trade? I am an artist and I could paint you something or trade something I've already done. ?
Xenia Katherine,trade...not so much. I'm really in it for earning some cash. Can't take my kids to the zoo with a painting. A headscarf with embroidery on one corner (embroidery done with a sewing machine, but free-hand) would be $25.00, or so, depending on how elaborate a design (how many colors, etc.) For a long scarf with motif on both ends, $40.00.
I love that quilt (love all quilts!) and that sweet dolly. :)
