Baby Gifts

Applique Name Shirts!

With my new machine I can do APPLIQUED NAME shirts! I love how this one turned out! Keep in mind if your name has several letters, they will be somewhat small in order to fit the shirt. This shirt and bow combo as pictured is $25. The shirt by itself is $22.

Florida Gator Gift Pkg

One of my best customers (Hi Candace) ordered these items for a friend who is pregnant....and they are big Florida Gator fans. So we put a little twist on the alligator design and made it in Gator colors. She also got shirts for the big sisters!

Candace, here is the gift wrap pic.

I knew it would happen sooner or later...I embroidered right through my finger last week! And I was home alone! I jerked my finger when it went through and broke the needle off in my finger. Luckily I have awesome friends/neighbors!! They tried to pull it out (3 times) but I just couldn't stand the pain so Kristin (thank you!) took me to the ER where she is a nurse and they numbed my finger, sliced it a little and pulled out the needle. And to top it off I had to have a tetanus shot. The owner of the shop where I bought my commercial machine said she did it one time and the needle went all the way through her acrylic nail. HOPEFULLY this will never happen again!!!!! It was very painful!

We took pics in the ER with my phone. They are not that clear but you can kind of see it. The needle went through my fingernail and then it's hanging out the other side. Luckily it just caught my fingertip and not a knuckle!!

Grand Opening - Tuesday

Here are a few pics from the Fleur De Lis grand opening last week. The store is so stinking cute! They have done a great job! My "stuff" is over in the children's corner. Check out the store if you get a chance...Summer's jewelry is super cute and very trendy! And there are some cute things for home decorating, etc...

This looks even better now...I haven't take pics since she redecorated/added some things.

New Store!

My friend, Summer Jackson, along with 2 of her friends are opening up a store in downtown Clarksville. She asked me if I would be interested in putting my "stuff" in her store. I am very excited about it! COME SEE US Tuesday night. It's a by invitation only grand opening. Even if you want to just come out to browse the store and mingle with friends! I think she is going to have cocktails. This is mainly for all of our current customers to come get the first sneek peak. The real grand opening is going to be Thursday, just in time for Rivers and Spiers. Summer owns Wild Angels jewelry and the other 2 ladies (Andrea and Heavenly) do antiques and all kinds of odds and ends.

Here is the info:
Fleur De Lis
Tradition with a Twist
100 S. Main Street~Downtown Clarksville
(formerly the old Main Street Photography Building)

Hope to see you! Shoot me an email if you are interested in coming! Sorry for the short notice!

Some new, some old

Here are some old designs and some I have never sewn out before....

Perfect design for a first birthday outfit!

I know, another alligator post but I thought the name was too cute! I think I like it because it's close to what we call my Ally...Ally Gator! I wish I would have put that on her shirt like this!

Looks like the crab patch design is the most popular right now! I have tons of orders right now for it.

I love this bib. Makes a great gift, too! The ribbon and monogram bib like shown is $12.

Diaper cover - $12

This blanket is so soft! I have a whole set of baby designs...a train, sailboat, rattle, baby feet, elephant, etc....and they can all be sewn in either pink or blue. The blanket with the monogram and design FROM THE BABY DESIGN SET (guess I need to post pics of those) is $16, which is the same price as if you just get it monogrammed. If you choose a different design like applique it will be $20.
