Custom Orders

I finished two orders for custom items today and thought I would show off some photos.  Yes, I'm tooting my own horn!  I am happy to take on the challenge of custom orders by using special fabrics or adjusting my patterns.  Feel free to make requests!

#1 - an On-the-Go Organizer, in coral calicoes and a cabbage rose print, with dark moss green corduroy.  Only thing missing is the button on the front.  I added an accent strip on the front of this one.
 The back...
 The inside...

This is a gift for someone on Mother's Day.  I hope she likes it!  I only had enough fabric to make one of these, so it's a one-of-a-kind!

And #2 - I finally finished my Cub Scout order of custom Scribblets.  For some reason I had a lot of sewing machine issues while working on these, and the velcro tabs were giving me fits.  I'm really pleased with how they turned out!  I ordered Boy Scout fabrics to make these, which has the badges, motto words and scout law words.  I adjusted the crayon pocket area to accommodate the Cub Scout's compass.  I also added a velcro flap for a smaller interior pocket, and switched the button/elastic closure to a velcro tab.

Front...
 Back...
 Inside...

 I made six total, but an early one has already gone to the customer.  It will feel good to deliver the rest!

Easter Egg Hunt!

Since so many of my recent posts were about projects for this event, I thought I would share some photos of the big day : )

The dessert table was decorated with my Easter Topiaries and other printables from this Easter party set at Catch My Party.  We had Peep Pops, No Bake Cookie Nests, Rice Crispy Eggs, Lemon Bars, Sugar Cookies, two small trays of fruits, veggies, and cheese, and bottled waters.



I lined the goodie bags on the counter, with our Easter Garden.


Contents of the goodie bags can be found in this post and this post : )

For the hunt activities, the kids had to find nine eggs that had the numbers written on the outside.  There was no rushing or grabbing, and yet they still were bubbling with excitement and enjoying themselves!  Those who found doubles of one number simply put it back where it was or shared it with a friend.  They all worked together until everyone had their own nine eggs.

Once everyone had their eggs, they opened them to find letters in each one that could be unscrambled for an Easter message.  They had papers and glue...


Then the kids decorated their papers with this Easter sticker scene from Oriental Trading. 


Then we had refreshments and watched an animated Easter story.  The kids all played on the playground afterward and went home happy with their goodie bags!  I heard more than one "that was the best Easter Egg Hunt ever!"  Can't wait to do it again next year!
