We’ve been pretty busy around here.  Working on new things and I’ve been trying to re-stock Treats For Your Sweets as we’ve started offering personalized headbands.  Yes I know, I’ve been trying to re-stock this store since last year.  It’s such a shame but I am only 1 person.

I can do same colors on both sides or if you’d prefer a different color fabric on each side we can do that also.  They’re available with our without the flower clippie.  I’m so excited about this.

We’re also starting to offer personalized leashes by request only for now. If you’re interest feel free to contact me.  We’d love to make one for you.  Well not for you but for your dog ;-)  They’ll be listed in the store in the near future.
That’s pretty much it for now.  Have a Happy Friday!

In case you didn’t know…

Sewing is making a comeback!  I don’t know about you, but I started making things for my 1st daughter after I would shop for hours and hours and not find exactly what I liked.  Contrary to what many think, it doesn’t always cost less to make a handmade item than it is to just buy it in a store.  Fabric,like everything else has increased in cost but with a handmade item you can make it exactly how YOU want it.

Anyway, even though I know there are millions of free tutorials floating around the internet, I still thought there would be people who would definitely benefit from my latest store addition.  I have gotten so many compliments on my covers and would just love for others to be able to do the same.

Sexygirl now offers Pre-cut Kits for you to make your very own.  This is the basic cover with only 2 pockets inside.  The kit comes with all pieces and already has the fusible interfacing attached.  Your kit also comes with a CD-ROM which has the Tutorial in PDF format.  So you would need ADOBE.  It is a step by step, very detailed tutorial with over 30 color photos.

These are just a couple of the prints that have been listed recently.

The PDF file is also available separately if you already have your fabric or wish to purchase your own.

Please check it out.

Meet the newest member of our family…..

BrotherPE780

She’s beautiful isn’t she.  And the best thing is, I used her right out the box, with no reading.  Those are the types of products I like.  People like me have absolutely no patience. 

I’ve been getting to know her but my excitement is causing me even more lack of sleep.  I go to sleep at a decent hour but find myself thinking about embroidery LOL.  So I get up at 3am or so to sew ;-)  She’s inspired me to work harder and I have been putting my all into this business.  Probably because she wasn’t cheap, at least not to me.

Here are some of her stitching and this is pretty basic.  Once I learn more about hoop positioning I’ll be able to do so much more.

I made this one for display purposes. Sexygirl is now offering personalized items.  This listing is for up to 3 letters.

Black Scrolls Personalized Checkbook Cover

We can personalize up to 3 large letters in script and can also do a full name.  There is a character limit die to the width of the check cover though

Oh and I’m practicing on these.  We’ll be offering them soon.  For adults and kids.  I know I know, this isn’t Alyssa and it should be facing the other way but I was in such a hurry to get a photo and the person it was meant for was not cooperating so this was the best I could do at the moment.

She does beautiful work.  I did have to get accustomed to pressing a button instead of stepping on a foot pedal.  It’s so weird.  Me and my old fashion machine could only look on as she worked

I’m so happy with her, at least for now.  But find comfort in knowing this Brand has and excellent track record.  Plus she has an excellent warranty so I’m not too afraid.

More to come soon!
