Embroidery Edition

I try not to linger too much on embroidery because most people don't have an embroidery machine.  But I thought I'd do a quick show-off today. I occasionally put stuff in my etsy shop, but right now it's empty because I'm lazy about restocking.  Anyways, even with an empty shop, I do a bit of sewing just from word-of-mouth.  A few things I've made recently:
--my daughter went to a birthday party so I whipped this up - love how it turned out (tutorial to come):

--my cousins made tie-dyed shirts for the first day of school and commissioned me to add their names:
--a friend of a sis-in-law emailed me about making a shirt for her daughter's first birthday.  Plus a little clip - so cute:
--my kindergartener needed a towel for a nap mat with her name in permanent marker - permanent marker, how boring!
--a neighbor of my aunt needed a shirt for her baby to cheer on her other daughter in a soccer game - the older daughter is #4 and we added jewels for extra spunk:
--another birthday party, another personalized shirt with matching headband - this time it's a version for a little bit older girl:

Okay, now I want a serger AND an embroidery machine . . . reality says it's never going to happen. I'll just live vicariously through you.

Very pretty projects. I just purchased a new Juki Machine and it does everything, except embroidery! I will leave that to you! Thanks for Sharing! I am your newest follower and I love your blog.


May I ask what kind of embroidery machine you have?! :) I'm looking for a new one and am completely stumped!
