New Fabric Flowers

I saw this kind of fabric flower, and I thought it would be fun to make some. They turned out so pretty and elegant! To make the flowers, all you do is take several circles of satin fabric, (of different sizes as shown) then take a lighter and go around each circle till they are heat-sealed  and start to curl up on the edges. When this is done, stack the circles (biggest to smallest with the smallest on top) and connect them by sewing straight through the middle. Then embellish and attach to headband or hairclip.

Now available in my Etsy shop!

Product Review #1

I am so grateful to Mary Lastowski for doing my first product review! I hope to do a series of them. Here is her review and pictures of her adorable little girls Evelyn and Gwynn.

-The items look as great after two washings as they did brand new.
-The stitching and appliques are perfect. All The pieces are examples of excellent craftsmanship and artistry.
-The infant headband is comfortable and stays in place really well. My 6 month old kept it on for several hours without me having to adjust it.
-Mimi's designs are so fun and colorful. It is great to have the option to coordinate my two girls without having to put them in the exact same outfit

New light blue dress

I made this new dress a few weeks ago, and I love how it turned out. Light blue is one of my favorite colors, and the dress is made of a beautiful lightweight satin. It matches the birthstone ring that my parents gave me for my 16th birthday, and I am so excited to finally have something to wear it with!
