Custom Creations

I have been approached to make custom pieces for customers. I love to make new things for people and am glad that people are thinking of me.
Melanie from SweetPicklesPottery asked me if I could make some clay topped sewing pins. I have seen these done before, but had never thought about doing them. She is going to give them to her child's teacher as a Christmas present in a pincushion she is going to make. Her child's teacher is a sewer. What a fantastic Christmas present. I am very pleased with how they turned out. I am in the process of varnishing them now.

Nicci from hullabalooboutique asked me if I could make beads to match this Alexander Henry Trick or Treat fabric. She was planning on making a dress for her daughter out of this fabric. She liked the little girl with the orange/red pointy hat.

These are the beads that I came up with.
