Christmas Creations

I did a lot of sewing and selling this season. I stayed up much later than I planned on, but who can resist an apron order? These are the highlights, which one is your favorite?

Wyoming is a little bit cuter with these aprons. My best-seller zebra and hot pink apron and a retro red ruffle apron.

For two lucky little boys who now have an excuse to bug mom in the kitchen.

I loved the truck apron so much I made one for my little man and wrapped it up for Christmas. He refuses to wear it, but whatever, it won't fit him for 2 years anyway:)

These music aprons were a custom order from Wyoming again. The perfect gift for music teachers, and I had to throw in a little pin with black tulle for some flare.

These are by far my favorite aprons I've done this season. I received an order from a grandmother who wanted mom, teenager and baby all in the kitchen cooking together. She had lots of specific requests and wants, but gosh they turned out lovely. The apron for mom needed to be plus-size, but Grandma still wanted it to be attractive and stylish. She wanted the fabric to be a little gothic, but girlie too.

I'll admit, I was a little overwhelmed with this order until I found this fabric at Joann's. Girlie and a little edgy, paired with purple polka dots it's per-fect!

Here is the order in all it's glory

Here's the one year old baby doll apron, simple and cute.

Here is the teen daughter's apron. I looove how it turned out, hands-down my fave. The ruffle on the bottom is too cute, edged in gray bias tape and a little yoyo for show.

For mom's apron I added 4 inches to each side 3 inches in length. I made the straps extra long, so she can still get a great tie out of it. It looks so sharp, I must admit. It took 4 yards of bias tape for this baby, sheesh.

For the extra glamor I made this pin. It's detachable, fabric yoyo with black lace.

I love how these turned out, so my new favorites:)

Now, back to making 2 quiet books for friends and finishing my list of things to make for my little man. If you see anything you love and are interested in a custom order just email me. Happy new year!

Showing Off

Want to shop Camille's Casa? Go here to check out my Christmas Sale!

I'm going to do a little showing off here for a second. I've been busy these last few months making things to sell and things for family. Want to see?

I made this gift box for my newest niece, my little guy finally has a cousin! They live far away at Medical School, so had to spoil her extra since we can't snuggle her.

This is her apron, adore.

And this is her applique onesie, cutie pie pants and a lovely sweater with a pin. Girls are too much fun:)

There is something about winter that makes me crave super nachos. You know, a gigantic plate of everything gooey mexican? Well, we've been having homemade nacho and a movie friday nights. Have to have some homemade guacamole, pico de gallo, sour cream and lots of cheese.

Don't you wish you were my friday night friend?

And last but not least, the super hero cape I made for my little man. It took a lot of convincing for him to actually try it on:) It's double-sided, a yellow star on the blue background. I did a B for his name, instead of Superman. I love those fun sewing projects you can whip out in a day! I made a little knapsack for his superhero treasures too.

I'm still working hard on an awesome gift for the little man and the patterns for all of you, be watching!

Linking up with Tator Tots and Jello, A little Knick Knack, and Fun to Craft

Odds and Ends

A few things I want to mention to my favorite readers:

First, I guest posted at Small and Simple this week, go check it out here.

Second, those of you that emailed and commented about the soap, I will reply I promise I've just been crazy busy:)

Third, the last day I will be accepting custom apron orders is December 10th. I am finishing up 2 adorable music note aprons, starting on some cute little boy aprons and just took an order for 3 gothic skull aprons (I know, weird) and don't worry I'll be posting pictures soon.

I will get some of my aprons that I just finished up soon for sale. I just re-designed my infant/baby doll apron and I have a few left from my last boutique.

I hope you are all having the happiest of holidays so far, I am:) I'm going to go make some cookies right now for an event tonight. Just in case you want to, here is the recipe ready to print and share: Mini Cinnamon Roll Cookies
