Appliques and Crafting

Well, this is one of my most recent creations! I love doing appliques and they are super easy!! This applique took me maybe 10 minutes! The trick is this great stuff called wonder under! It keeps your fabric in place so there's no bunching! Cut out the shape of your applique. Place the "wonder under" underneath the fabric and on top of your shirt (or whatever you are attaching your applique to) You want to use 2 pieces of the wonder under because there is only glue on one side. So layer the wonder under between the shirt and your fabric. Iron over top of the fabric to adhere the wonder under. Then set your sewing machine to the zig zag stitch to desired length and width. And viola! An applique! Isn't it cute? And it looks professional!

My First Post

Greetings to all readers! This is my first post on my new blog and I'm so excited! I made this blog to release all of my crafting ideas and pass along a few tips and hints that I have found helpful.
A little about myself. I am a stay at home mom of a beautiful (almost 4 year old) daughter named, Emilee. I have a wonderful husband who "puts up" with all of my crazy crafting/sewing ideas and adventures! He's great! I own a small business and I create lots of baby items and things for moms! I make (and design) diaper bags, purses, totes, t-shirts/onesies, hair bows, cloth diapers, headbands, name it and I will try it! I share an embroidery machine with my awesome grandma who makes these beautiful baby blankets/quilts. That machine is so neat! I have so many designs, its crazy! I especially love to do applique items. They are so adorable! I sell alot of my items through boutiques and a handcrafting site called etsy.
I love etsy! I'm an addict I guess you could say. I'm also a member of a great group on etsy called EtsyKids. Its a group of sellers who specialize in kids items, and I'm telling you, their creations are fabulous! Those people can create and make wonderful items!
You can check out my items on the link at the top of the page or here.
Let me know what you think, I love perfecting my collections! Or stop over and buy something. :) Well, that's all for now. I hope to find some great tutorials on how-to's and crafting soon. Life stays busy, it seems. Hopefully I will get to writing more posts soon! Thanks and happy crafting!
