Amy Butler Belle Tunic.


Today I listed this new tunic,
 



 I am not totally happy with the quality of these pictures. With my husbands rotating shift work, we have to snap pictures whenever we get the chance. The ideal time for the best exposure is about 5:00pm in the evening or anytime on an overcast day. This picture was taken about 12:30pm, and you can tell. We are in the South, and you can almost see the humidity in the pictures.
You can find this top here.
I hope you like it!

Silk Knit Suprise!!


Today I received my big box of silky knit....The first thing I noticed is that is was very heavy. I could not wait to open this box, and find all the yummy knits I ordered. I didn't realize though the silky knit was actually...pretty silky....

I tried to fold this fabric nice and pretty for these pictures, but folding six yard cuts of silky knit was quite challenging.



Being somewhat of a knit novice, I was thinking silky meant something like soft t-shirt material, but I was wrong....silky wrong...


So, now I have 18 yards of this. I have already ruled out anything for children with this fabric, but I have some ideas swirling for women's tops (mixing the colors in one blouse). I don't see myself making any dresses with this, but these tops with dark denim would look especially nice this winter.




On a cotton note I listed this little outfit today....




lovin' my sweet model


poppy flower headband, and matching peasant dress...
All handmade by me. You can find this little outfit in my shop here

Ruffle Skirts and a SALE

                                                    

I would like to announce a SALE at my shop sweethomeboutique  10% off everything using the coupon code LOVELY


                                                     I have also listed this new skirt today...


Two complete layers, yellow peacock and eyelet.

                                          full twirl with ruffle, everything a little girl would want in a skirt

The story behind this skirt is that I made it for my little girls this summer when my shop was in vacation mode. After washing and drying and wearing many times, I decided that this dress was too pretty not to list in my shop.  I love dressing my little girls in this with a yellow or red shirt, and they love to twirl in it.

I also got a facebook page makeover, that you can check out and like here.. I am in the process of changing it to a business page, so that I can load my super awesome introduction landing page.

So many ideas, and so little time for this mama. I wish I could sew up everything that I dream, but being a wife, and mother to 4 children 5 and under, pregnant with #5 and homeschooling that does not always happen. I stay pretty busy getting orders out to my amazing customers, but I hope to list some new things soon..
things such as

--rosette headbands to match my little girls clothing
--corduroy coats for little boys and girls (with flannel lining)
--round neck tops for women
--coats for womens
--long sleeve panal tunics for women.
--knit fabric clothing for women and children

I am also going to be making my first wholesale purchase to Westminter Fabrics in a couple of weeks for Amy Butler, and Free Spirit Fabric. So, super busy here! I appreciate, you, all of my readers and  customers and would like my blog to continue to grow as well.

So, what do you think of the new skirt?
