The Green Menagerie

Welcome to my little corner of the crafting world! I am obsessed with all things sewing-related, including my newest obsession, machine embroidery. Everything on this blog is handmade by me.

Triple Taggie Blankets

My neighbor Hollee, a mom of triplet 1-year-olds, asked me to make her kiddos some new blankets (spurred by the loss of one blanket on vacation -- we all know how devastating that is!). She now has two new blankets for each child, one to hold and one to wash.

Something cool about the embroidered names: That font is actually Hollee's handwriting! She had her writing made into a font here, and I downloaded it, loaded it into my embroidery program, and voila!

Karis & Kaela's Birthday Twirl Skirts

The shirts are looking a little odd because they are hanging on HUGE adult-sized hangers. Oops.

Emily's Birthday Pillowcase

Lime Sheetgowns ... er, Nightgowns

Old sheets from the thrift store make the BEST nighties!

Owl Jumper

Melaina requested a dress made from this adorable owl fabric. How could I resist that grin?! I even made a big pocket on the front to hold all her treasures.
