Bella Swap - October Card

I am doing a monthly Bella card swap on SCS. Janet hosted for October and sent over these cutie bella images and paper and her's what I came up with. The theme was birthday and I had kind of hard time with the color scheme, but it turned out better than I thought it was. It really had me stumped! Hope my fellow swappers like how they turned out.

Pumpkin Wunkin

In between all the letter shirts I was stitching up, I did manage to make a few little jack-o-lantern shirts. I whipped up the pattern myself and went to town. It was fun to see the pics of the little dudes that got to wear them. Now, I am wracking my brain to come up with boyish ideas for wintery themed shirts. (Seems that all my friends keep having boys!) Y'all have any ideas? If I come up with anything, I may post them on etsy! :-)
Hope you are all having a great week!

What I've Been Up to ...

So, I haven't had much time for fun crafting ... not that I don't enjoy sewing, but sometimes I want to put down the shirts and make something different! :-) Here's one of my 20 (or more!) tshirt orders ... I really dig this fabric and color combo, so I really liked how they turned out.

I did manage to knock out about 80 shirts in just under 3 weeks. Whew! Thank goodness I now outsource some of the manufacturing process to my sweet husband and occasionally some to my mom as well. I have about another 60 or some odd shirts on order, so I will be back to work this week. I did take the weekend off to head to the beach with my college girlfriends. It was fun to get away and relax for a bit.

I am so excited to have tomorrow off from school ... thanks to our Veterans! :-) I am off to bed so that I can spend it at my sewing machine!

Polka Dots!

Hey all ... this will be quick. Gotta get to bed so I can get up in the morning. At least tomorrow is a teacher workday so I do get to sleep a little late! :-)
I made a set of these cards for my friend's bday. I hope she liked them ... I mailed them off to her last week. I love the color combo - it is our alma mater's colors, so it worked out great.
You can see my sewing machine in the background ... its been my best friend all weekend. I finished up 24 shirts and 4 pillowcases this weekend. I also stitched another 20 sets of letters today so hopefully I can get those sewn down on the shirts tomorrow and Tuesday ... I kind of need to mail them on Wednesday. Whew! At least my husband helps out with some of the work (well, I do pay him ...) so that helps it go a little faster.
I have some other fun things to post, but will have to post them later this week. Hope you all had a great weekend. Don't forget to vote on Tuesday!
