Embroidered Pillowcase

We converted Harlow's crib to a toddler bed several months ago, but it wasn't until a couple months ago that I added the quilt as a light comforter.  I made the quilt when I was pregnant with her and haven't used it much until now.  The only sheet on her bed is a fitted sheet.  I knew she was ready for a pillow, but I wanted to keep the pillowcase neutral to go with any sheets or blankets.

I got this pillowcase at Ross and decided to embroider the edge of it.  It jazzes it up a bit and definitely adds a personal touch.  The embroidery font is Releigh from Boutique Fonts.

No, I didn't iron the pillowcase for these photos.  Yes, I took these photos at night so there is no natural light.  Real life, y'all.

All that matters is that Harlow likes it and feels special. :)

Handmade + Embroidered Easter Dress

My mom made Harlow this dress for Easter.  The pattern is McCall's M6872.  The website says the pattern is out of print, but you could probably find it at Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's.

The fabric is some I've had stashed away for a few years that I bought at Hancock Fabrics (RIP Hancock).

The embroidery font is the Interlocking Vine Monogram from Boutique Fonts.  I enlarged it in Sew What Pro embroidery program.

I got the shoes a few weeks ago at Ross and have had the bow since Harlow was a few months old.  The cardigan is Carter's (shop through ebates for 2.5% cash back).  We've had the cardigan for awhile, so I'm not sure if it's still available.  It may have come as a set with an outfit.

My off-the-shoulder dress is from Ross.  I got it for $7, because someone ripped out both sides of it when they tried it on.  I had to sew the sides shut, but it was an easy fix and well worth the $7!  My shoes are Gianni Bini from Dillard's, and I've had them for a few years.  My leather strap necklace is from E. Leigh's.  Colin's shirt is a TailorByrd that I scored for around $14 at T.J.Maxx, and I don't know offhand where his pants and shoes are from.

We had a great morning at church and a good time at our house with all of Colin's family over for lunch and egg hunting.

I hope you all had a great Easter!  He is risen!

Embroidered Chef Hat + Apron for Kids

Colin's parents gave this chef's hat and apron to Harlow back in February.  Isn't it the cutest?  I just got around to embroidering it this week...life as a mom, right? :)

I'm not sure where they got this chef set, but I found some similar ones on Amazon like this one.

The embroidery font is Sweet Pea from Boutique Fonts.

This makes such a great gift!
