Burlap Tote

Once a week I have a sewing class and this week I took a blank burlap tote and added a few fun details. A fun fabric flower near the handles and a black and white chevron pocket on the front.

Baby Hayden

My friend Jaime is having her second baby in oct  a little girl, and today at work we had a shower for her. Rather then make the usual baby shower banner I just made a name banner in the nursery colors and then a fun diaper cake!

Can't wait to meet baby Hayden congrats Jaime!

Back to School

As the summer winds down its time to start thinking about back to school, and  I was super excited when a friend reached out about a project. She was looking for lettering for her classroom boards. Its her first year as a preschool teacher, and she is getting her classroom ready. 

a little hard to tell with my polka dot carpet but its a welcome sign

super cute sign for board above pictures of the kids in her class

Baseball Baby Shower

I love parties and themed ones are my favorite, I love even more when I get to help with the decorations. This was a baby shower that a friend on mine threw for her step daughter, it was a baseball with boston and new york as the favorite teams.

Large Baseballs cut out of cardstock and grayson cut from baseball paper

Turned out perfectly all the signs and baseballs were out cut from cardstock using my silhouette

I love helping friends and seeing the end result is even better!

Its already been a year!!!

a little dottie my etsy shop is 1 year old today! I can't believe how fast the year has gone. Fun things are happening I will be at my first market in November with a booth and depending on how that goes perhaps more events in the future. But as I look back at the year and the things I have done, the weddings I have made banners for the baby showers and birthdays. I just want to say thank you to all my customers and friends and family your support truly has made a little dottie successful!

NFL Birthday

I love when I get to do things that are unique so when a customer asked for a banner for her son's birthday I was thrilled. They are Rams fans and since I already make a football banner turning it into a birthday banner just took a little tweaking.

Bluesapalooza 2014

Last year my best friend and her boyfriend invited my husband and I to Bluesapalooza in mammoth and we had a great time. So now its tradition this is the 2nd annual "camping trip" now that's in quotes because my idea of camping is a condo among the trees. This year was just a much fun as the previous year, always great to spend time with close friends.
