Elf feet! These are the feet that get it done for Christmas!

I think the elf feet are sooo cute!  We all know that Momma's have to run around and do a lot of creative foot work around Christmas.  That is why this applique is so fitting for a Mom!

This family all used the same fabric but in different appliques.  I thought this mom had such a great idea! I always enjoy working with Shelley.  She inspires me:-)

Turkey monogrammed initial shirt

I love this turkey initial applique.  I would also like to do a shirt where the turkey initial applique is the first initial of a name and then monogram the rest of the name behind it.  
I also like to do little boy shirts on this color shirt because you know little boys are going to get dirty!  This shirt does not show dirt so much:-)

This Shirt is $20.  I plan on doing a little girl shirt.....I think I will try to use more hot pink.  I would also like to do this boy shirt where the fill initials are in orange, and do the beak in orange.  Let me know if you want yellow initials or orange initials.

The Best Christmas Present EVER!!!!! Baby Jesus applique shirt

About 2,000 years ago, the BEST Christmas present came to ALL of us - JESUS!  I am so glad I have received my gift and pray that you share my joy too!

I like this applique, because it truly shows the "Reason for the Season!"  

 I made this for my son.  It is on a navy l/s shirt and it says "The Best Present in History!"  I wanted to make it so that it would go with jeans or Khakis.  It does not have to have the saying, I can also put your child's name, and I can make it look more feminine, if you would like.
The above picture is crooked, but the design is straight on the shirt.  I will try to take a better picture.  This shirt is $20.

Initial shirt with name

Riley's mom brought me these pants and asked me to make something that would match them.  We came up with the lowercase "r" applique and name.  Now Riley has a great outfit and he can wear this shirt with jeans too!

This shirt is $18.  This also would make a great birthday present!

Dachshunds are a boys best friend!

I grew up with Dachshunds so they hold a special place in my heart!  One of my mom customers had this great idea.....and of course I thought it was adorable.  I used minky brown and black material on one of the shirts and I used crushed black velvet and some deep reddish brown fabric on the other shirt.  I was trying to match the characteristics of a red and black doxie!

Who Who wants an Owl Applique shirt?!

I love this little design!  It is from Planet Applique.  I want to do one for my daughter and put "Who Dat!" under it:-)  Oh the things I want to do!!!!

Custom Boy design with Jeep and wagon.

A special mom in Canada wanted this cute little shirt made for her little boy.  She said that Oscar loves his dad Rhino.  I had never heard of a Rhino and when she asked me if I had an applique of a Rhino (we were conversing via email) I was trying to think if I had an applique of the horned animal!  I am so glad she sent me a picture of what she was talking about:-)  Anyway, she says that one of Oscar's favorite past times is riding in his wagon behind his dad's Rhino!  So....that is how the shirt came about.  I tried to make it look like Oscar's name was about to fall off the wagon.

The jeep is from Applique Frenzy and the wagon is from Planet Applique.

If you have a unique idea....let me know!  I might be able to make it happen:-)

Apple applique made to match a Gymboree skirt

I got this Gymboree skirt at a Consignment sale.  I did not put a piece of fabric in for the apple, I just did the outline of the apple.

Here is what the apple applique could look like.  This might be a cute design for Valentine's day.

Monogrammed Name shirt that can be worn with ANYTHING!

This is a great shirt to have in your little girl or boy's closet.  It can make a simple outfit ADORABLE!  It can go with shorts, pants, and skirts.
It is $15.

An apple a day....keeps the Boogeyman away!

These little candy apples are great for Halloween and all of Fall!

I think this shirt would be cute with a bow around the stick.

Sibling shirts:  Girl with polka dots and boy with gingham.
These shirts are $20 each.
What a cute outfit!!!
Avery's mom wanted these polka dot pants so Avery could also wear them to Disney with her Minnie shirt and maybe even for Valentine's.  Let's just hope she does not have a massive growth spurt!

Riley's pants will also match his Disney shirt too!

Wild Moose on the loose!

This sweet little moose is for a wild man!  His name is Wylde:-)

This moose is small because it is on a onesie.  It can be done larger.

Family on the go!

This family will be on the go with their transportation applique shirts!

Dewy's shirt is a four wheeler.  These orange shirts are very hard to find.  It is $20.

This is a Cement truck for daddy!  I did it in yellow and khaki, because I wanted dad to be able to wear it with khaki pants or jeans.  

Mom wanted a pink scooter and she got to choose the fabric.  The wheels are in a brown fabric with turquoise polka dots.  Wouldn't it be fun if you really had a scooter that looked like this!!!

I have a few more to do for this family, just wanted to get them posted.

Quick cheap outfit

I saw these cute little outfits at Wal-Mart.  They had them in all different colors.  I just put Landrie's name on the top and now we have a cute little play outfit!
I have had some people mail me their items to monogram and applique.  Landrie's name is in Tinkertoy font.

Elf on the Shelf and in a pocket!

This design reminds me of the "Elf on the Shelf" book!  I love that elf!  We hide him everywhere!  Now you can tell your kiddo that your special elf is going to go everywhere with your child and will see everything so he can report back to Santa.  This elf is hiding in a clever pocket!  I can't wait to do one of these for my little girl!   I think I even have a girl elf.  I can't remember our elf's name, but when I figure it out, I may monogram it on the elf's hat!
If you have an Elf on the Shelf....please let me know some fun things or hiding places you have put your elf!  We are always looking for fun places to put him!

The pen just shows you that it is a pocket.  Also, my little girl loves pockets.   I also used glow in the dark fabric for the white part of this shirt like I did in the ballet shoe design.  Got to love glow in the dark:-0   This elf shirt is $25.

A time to dance - ballet shoes

I used pink fabric with ballet shoes on it.  I also found some glow in the dark white fabric and I used it for the white part of the shoe.  It looks white anyway, but when you go into a dark room it glows!  What kid doesn't love glow in the dark fabric.  I guess I still am a kid:-)  

Triple E

Three initials.  This can be done for the boys too, probably not in Curlz though:)

Yee Haw Cowboy!!!!

My husband saw this outfit and asked me if I was really going to put his little boy in it!!!!


Judson was precious in it and I loved it!  I probably won't be able to get away with dressing him like this for much longer....but while I can.....I WILL!!!

Does your little partner need some cowboy pants for his swagger:-)  The "J" is from the western alphabet applique.
