embroidered birth announcement

It’s always one of the most refreshing things ever to see something that you had pictured in your mind come together via your hands. That was the case with this birth announcement.

I had done a subway style version to begin with and I did love how it turned out, but I knew I wanted to do a more girly version. After doing some research and looking around the web, I decided that I wanted to try my hand at a mix of felt flowers and embroidery.

I added a few vintage buttons to the mix, plus some lazy daisy stitches and I’m stunned with how well it turned out.

These will be up in the shop in the coming weeks so you can get your own custom made version!

hello stranger

This last month has been a doozy. I feel like I’ve been away from daisyeyes forever and it has been a nice reprieve to pick it back up again; albeit slowly. I’m still technically on call for this interim teaching position so I’m still kind of in limbo until after spring break. After spending nearly 3 weeks back in a classroom, we packed up and drove all the way to Florida to hang out with the Mouse and nearly a bagillion other people. We had a fantastic week and had so much fun, but I was super happy to be back home. I’m slowly becoming more of a fan of instagram and you can see some great pictures from our trip here if you become a follower.

I’ve slowly had a few things in the works for the shop and hope to keep slowly rolling them out over the next few weeks.

First up is this rainbow birthday banner:

WIP...123's for the banners to be

I love how these numbers look and can’t wait to get the whole banner completed. The banners will say “I AM ONE” or TWO or THREE etc. You get the picture.

 

Going along with these rainbow banners is this little mini bunting I made. The letters are all hand embroidered onto mini pennant banners and it makes the perfect little reusable decoration for a high chair, regular chair or anything else you can think of.

These little banners are already in the shop and ready to be made just for you!

 

Last up is the first of a few different styles of birth announcements. This is the subway style version. It’s all hand embroidered in a cool variety of fonts and fully customized to the specifics of the little dude or chick!

They measure 9×12 and are also in the shop ready to be made just for you! Turn around time for these is about 2-3 weeks.

That’s about it for now. Hopefully I can be back to regular postings in the next week or so…but that proves to be seen just yet.

Off to watch some Alias (yes I’m like 10 years behind the times, but thank goodness for Netflix!)
