On the fringe!

Little Sew N Sews has really been making the birthday party circuit lately!

A customer recently asked me to make a horse tee for a 7-year-old who is a great horsewoman and a fashionista to boot.

At first we looked for a cute applique design but never came up with the right look. I stumbled upon this design which uses machine embroidery to create fringe for the horse's mane and tail.

Since I've never tried the fringe technique, I went through several pieces of fabric testing out the sewing and trimming and finally felt confident enough tonight to sew out the real thing. I think it's adorable. And I hope Landree thinks so too!

Revisiting the Not-so-little Sew N Sews

Maggie's Mom brought her by the factory last week to show off how adorable she looks in her LSnS-made birthday gift. These applique monogrammed tees are the current best seller! I've already made two more this week and have 7 more to go!

Kaylee's mom tells me that her "K" tee will be her first-day-of-first-grade outfit. Perfect!

9/7/05 update: Kaylee's mom was at the factory last night and showed me a professional photograph of Kaylee in her LSnS applique-monogrammed tee. Too cute!
