Boy Clothes!!!

I once was a mommy of two little girls, and my world was completely pink. In April 2008 we had our first boy, and now have 3 little guys ages 4, 2, and 7months (along with our 5 and 6 year old girls)...
So, as a seamstress mommy to girls it is so fun, and so easy to come up with amazing outifts. Little girls are all about twirl, ruffles, gorgeous fabric etc.  I find it a lot harder to sew for my little guys because, at least in my mind, they always need to look "cool"......
On that note, I listed 3 little man things in my shop today with my baby boy modeling :-)

                                                         The classic mustache onsie you can find in my shop here
                                                      Bicycle rompers you can find here
                                    And a classic corduroy ropmers with tie for the little man at work
                                                You can find them in my shop here
So, I hope I am doing my part in the world to add cool baby boy clothing to Etsy

New little lady dresses.. and a shrug

I listed 2 new dresses today in Sweet Home Boutique. I have already made these dresses for my own girls, but I got so many compliments on them I decided to list them in my shop...I have tried many different patterns for my girls, but always go back to the peasant dress because it is so comfortable and easy to wear (no zippers, buttons, ties. etc.)

 When we were in Virginia Beach VA this summer we lived right beside a Johannes Fabric...It was basically a dream come true to live beside an amazing fabric store so before I left I picked up several fabrics including the fabric shown in this dress.
You can check out this dress in my Etsy shop here

  I also added this dress with Oh Deer fabric by Moda...I think it is so gorgeous. It again is a peasant style, but with a complete elastic waistline as opposed to it just on the back.

 It also has a pretty red band on the bottom with darker red trees.
                                                 You can find this Moda dress in my Etsy shop here

Yesterday I got this listing up. I have made several of these for my daughters and have received a ton of compliments on them.

                                                                little crochet shrug

            My girls wore these all summer over their little tank tops and they complimented every outfit so well. You can also see the Shrug in my shop here

Baby Things And The Sweet Home behind Sweet Home Boutique

Hello Beautiful people!

                This week I have decided to put some of my clothing back in my shop as opposed to just simply crochet items. I am very excited about that, and I am even more excited about new ideas I have for clothing creations!! Something I am going to be working on next is mother/daughter Christmas dresses, using Michael Miller damask print in red. THAT will be so pretty.

Christmas Fabric for mother/daughter dresses!

 I have also added two new baby items to my shop
