Happy Holidays to everyone. Here is a cute little baby set I finished the other day. Almost makes me want another baby!!! I haven't been posting as much these days. Sew Poshy has slowed down to enjoy the holiday season. There are giggling children everywhere, grumpy shoppers that I must smile at, and quiet time to remind my family the reason for this holiday season. Please take special time this month to make memories with loved ones and have fun with dear friends.

Happy Holidays to everyone. Sew Poshy has been sooo quiet these days. I worked my first craft show a couple of weeks ago & am now resting my princess-self!! Remember, I'm no sweat shop! The show was so much fun meeting people & spending the day with special friends. Can't wait to work another one. On the hunt for a good spring show... These days I'm chasing children, chatting with girlfriends, and tinkering around on some of my special orders. Take time out for yourself this week ladies. Linger over coffee, dip in a Lush bath, or even take a yummy nap. Embrace life. Spread your love. And smile...

Hello to all. I have been scarce around my blog these days, but working my little fingers as fast as they will go. This weekend I am taking the plunge and trying to sell my tiny posh products to the public. Scary!! I will team up with Liberty Original and we shall become "The Two Lovely Ladies." I pray for God's will with this event... This is a itty peek at one of my bags. Hopefully I'll have time to post some more things later. SPECIAL thanks to my Liberty Original photographer who helped me take pictures of my pretties today. Darling, you are divine. She even taught me how to put text on my pictures. Who knew?!?! Tah Tah for now!

Sweet dreams to the doggy who got this! It was a donated item to a school fundraiser. The sweet little class put together lots of dog items for a goodie bag and the dog bed was auctioned off with it. So super soft. I'm sure one will have to be made for the posh kitties at this house. Treat your animals with love and affection--they're special too!

Wow... Long time without posting!!! I've been dying to show off more things I've been making, but life is a frenzy right now. Don't fret a minute, I have been super busy making delightful things!! Actually, I've been making stinkin' cute things (the new posh buzz word). Here's a little bag I worked on this week. Took longer than normal: I had a student! I taught a lovely lady how to make a bag just like this. She would watch each step of making it & crafted her own bag along the way. So much fun!!! Go on, smile--it's stinkin' cute.

Hello! Great weekend to everyone. Love this new creation. It meets my criteria of "shoulder scrunch and giggle"!! Mommies can throw the wipes and attached diapers in their purse & go! No more wadded up diapers in the bottom of your huge purse. No more seaching and only finding the diaper and not the wipes. Such a cute combo. I have already made them in oodles of different fabrics and will make my first delivery this afternoon. Great ideas come from many different directions. Always listen carefully.

Good morning to all! Here's my latest creation. I decided I need a girly business card holder & of course couldn't find anything to buy that was posh enough. Never fear, lots of fabric here!! Just a tiny little pouch to show off your cutest cards ever! Sew Poshy is entering a joint venture with Liberty Original and we had special cards made up. Notice all names have been concealed--we're under the Posh Protection Program! Both companies are busy little bees preparing tres chic products to flaunt & sell. We are so excited! Just making the world prettier in my own little way. On the topic of pretty: How pretty are you on the inside? Something to think hard about...

Oh Darling, look at these cuties! Here is the PERFECT accent to your lovely baby gifts! These look like little lollypops or sweet cupcakes and are made of wonderful, useful baby items! Wouldn't they look divine on top of your wrapped gift?! I shall be making up lots of these just because they make me smile! Okay, I giggle and scrunch up my shoulders. Watch out new mommies that I know--you'll be getting these as gifts! So earlier today I was having breakfast with two poshy friends and I went to the potty. On the wall was a grand sign. It read "Always tell the true. You'll never have to remember anything." That made me giggle too. Try it...

Wow! Just imagine, a cool evening out on the ball fields and your little one is sooo cold. You wrap them up in a blanket, but it drags the ground when they're running around playing with their friends. Bummer... Sew Poshy to the rescue! Look at this adorable "Ruffle Wrap." Yours truely created it. I have tested it out in the market and kids LOVE it! Mommies think it's precious. I smile when I look at them! So sweet and soft. There's plenty of room to run around in the wrap and stay warm at the same time. I shall make one for myself! Take good care of your body--it sets a great example for your children.

Oh how sweet it is to have a newborn baby! God is good. Congrats go out to you Jennifer. I shall snuggle and smooch your little one endlessly once I get my arms around her! I know she'll be "Pretty" just like you!!! I will come bearing pink gifts galore...Give thanks to God for all you have.
Well, aren't these little shoes a show stopper!?! It took itty bitty pieces of fabric to make them and will fit an itty bitty Cinderella. These are the first kimono shoes I have made. I think they are absolutely delicious! Special thanks to Liberty Original for selling me her gorgeous fabric. Don't forget to give praise to others--it makes them feel good and you too!

This fancy bag went to a sweet child for her birthday. (Filled with make-up Darling!) I used some of my new yummy fabric. The outside is solid pink and looks quite shy, but the inside is super bold and wild. I know a few people like that... Well, back to fabric. I shall dream up something fabulous tonight and stitch it up this week. Who will be the recipient of my random act of kindness? One never knows. You should try it yourself. Doing nice things for other people for no reason at all is lovely. Put a smile on your face and plot!
Every girl needs a precious little tote to carry her essentials around in. Soft fabric, sprinkles of flowers, trim with sparkle and even tiny heart beads. Go on, giggle! This bag goes lovely with a twirly skirt and shoes that click on your hardwood floors. I love being a lady. Always take pride in who you are.

Ooooh...Aaaaah... Feast your sweet little eyes on this outfit! Stand back, here comes a royal princess! I don't think you can get any more posh than this. It's a Carter's onsie that is so super soft & bloomers made of the most darling toile. Just look at those ruffles...No one will be able to resist squealing when they see it on the beautiful child it will be gifted to! I shall not reveal her name to anyone. All gifts should be a great surprise. Her mommy is a lovely lady & I know this baby will be just as cute.
Finally, the second set!
This flaunts a hot pink theme. Aren't we all a little hot some days!?! Oh Mommy, make sure to put a huge bow in your little one's hair when you take her out with these accessories. She simply must be the diva! Being a diva is divine. Go ahead and strut today. See how great it feels... (and watch your children giggle at you!)

Not often will I open up about my personal life, but today a small note. Here's my hero. This is the man who shaped my entire life. This is the strongest, smartest, most loving person you will ever lay eyes on. Today I cry tears of sorrow and tears of joy. I miss Daddy dearly, but take incredible comfort knowing he now lives in Heaven. Life is precious. Cherish all you have.

Just a little peek... Just a quick glimpse of my craft room! Here's one of my little fairies. This delightful one is nestled in the chandelier in the middle of the room. I giggle every time I look at my exquisite light and think of poor Kevin (the fab handyman!). He had to individually unwrap all of the delicate crystals and drape them carefully on the light. It is truly beautiful and I thank him from the bottom of my heart. Just know you should always cherish your friends. Treat them like royalty. My love to the Hensleys!!!!
This sweet ensemble will be shipped out to Colorado and sold to the highest bidder. Kiss, kiss to Carrie for asking me to make yummy baby gifts!! There are two burp clothes, a diaper wipe cover, changing pad, and drawstring bag (of course). Sooo glam!! Pink and green my love--that's the theme. I will be posting another set soon... All baby girls should demand only the fanciest of accessories. I support you girls, you are worth it!
Hello again...I haven't posted for several days, but that doesn't mean I haven't been working! I shall wow you today. First Darling, feast your little eyes on this. I completely forgot I made the ballet bag. There are princesses playing at my house today and one sweet child surfaced with this. It's a drawstring made of oh so sweet toile and satin. It has a sturdy bottom and holds itty bitty ballet slippers and teeny tiny tap shoes. There's just enough room to top it off with a twirly tulle skirt (and of course a fluffy hair bow). How dreamy...

Okay Liberty, you have properly tagged me... I am it & must now list 10 facts about myself. Certainly this will all be juicy gossip swirling around Sew Poshy! Here's the skinny:
- Sew Poshy is tucked away in the basement of my home. My little company has been graciously given one room. But just like any other diva, she has spilled over into two adjoining rooms!
- My Sew Poshy room is sprinkled with fairies and angels. Whimsical and beautiful things inspire me.
- Sew Poshy is the triple threat. Her weapons consist of a sewing machine, embroidery machine, and serger.
- Sew Poshy exists by the Grace of God! The real "Posh Boss" in this house is Christ Jesus.
- Most of Sew Poshy's creations are designed and made in the morning... while watching Curious George of course.
- I own no less than 12 pair of scissors. At any given time I can usually find 2 of them.
- There are 20 boxes of ribbon on my shelves. I need at least 20 more to store the ribbon just randomly sitting around "unorganized." Oh well, my ribbon leads a gypsy's life.
- Favs: Pink, ruffles and cute gadgets
- Dislikes: Denim, orange and broken needles
- There are little dollops of Lush sitting around Sew Poshy's room. Smelling luxurious scents as I piddle away on my beautiful fabrics makes me even happier.
There you have it. 10 facts. Not all important, but it gives you a little glimpse of me. Just little me. Tah Tah Darling...

Super, super cute! Here's one of our "Friday Bags" to a special teacher... There are two adorable little girls who love their teacher & they wanted to each take in a surprise bag. Here's what we came up with! The poem was split in half & each child took in their goodies in separate bags. Soooo, the teacher has to get both bags before she can read her precious poem. The poem reads:
"Hooray! You survived the whole first week!
Now some relaxation we're sure you'll seek...
This should get you off to a great start.
A gift of love straight from the heart!"
I love surprises. I love to give surprises. Who shall I surprise next?

Just thought I would add this for flare today too! Baby Isabella lives in Germany with her sweet family. Mommy said it made a hit. This is a diaper wipe cover, changing pad, and drawstring bag. Perfect essentials for Isabella to go out for a playdate! Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE the color pink???!! I simply feel divine when surrounded by pink. One day I'll take pics of my little craft room to show the world. Lots of pink there! Don't forget about that tiny little corner in your heart that's "kid." It certainly can add fun to your day.
This little bitty baggy makes me giggle it's soooo super cute! We have the greatest bus driver in all the world and must make sure she knows what a diamond she is to everyone!!! Three adorable fabrics come together and flaunt the poshiest drawstring you can dream up! The only thing you could possibly put in this oober fancy bag would be Lush. Oh yes, Lush! Lush! Lush! Wow, kind of makes you want to drive a bus, huh? Please remember to always drive careful. Your actions affect so many people...
This has been a busy day! Tomorrow school starts & we had to have special gifts for special teachers! Tah dah for this year's "Teacher Survival Kit." This is an annual tradition, but the first time I've ever documented it! What goodies are inside you ask?? Survival items of course: mouthwash, floss, stain remover, lint brush, nail clippers & file, various medicines, tissues, safety pins, sewing kit, etc. The list goes on...It's filled with lots of items your terrific teacher just might need, but might not have thought to have with them at work. Just a little warm fuzzy to make them feel extra special. After all, they are shaping the children of today into smart and responsible adults. Don't ever forget to show people around you that you love them!

Okay Girls, here is my original laundry bag. It was the first, certainly not the last, but definately one of my favs. I use it quite often. Even though it holds stinky laundry, people are attracted to it! It does scream posh. ALL girls should own one. Maybe I will dream of another creation tonight... Remember to smile. Happiness can be found everywhere you look.

I was certainly inspired by Isabella's bag... Here's another one for a baby gift that has a coordinating burp cloth. LOVE to make burps! I always use the high quality 6 ply
diapers. They sew beautifully and wash just as well. Kendall, I hope you have beautiful trinkets to fill your poshy bag with!! Always remember that Christ has a plan for your life. Take some time to talk to Him...

Okay, another birthday bag. Must be super cute, even the little kitty kitty wanted to check it out! I think it's so much more special to have a personalized gift bag like this... And never forget how green this is--there can always be another wonderful use for their bag! No mommy would ever throw this gift bag away! Always remember that being a mother is the most important role in the world. What you are doing now is shaping your child's future. Love your babes with all your heart!

Ooh la la... Sister, why buy a birthday bag when you can make THE birthday bag. Isn't is super sweet??! Posh fabric with tiered cakes all over it and lined in pink satin (of course!). Okay, so this is wedding cake fabric, but every princess should have a birthday cake just like this. Happy birthday to the beautiful child we will celebrate with today. Here's today's tidbit from me: never forget the strength of your family. Stick together and love them with all your heart. My family is super fab!!

Look at this child... I have two words for her: Super and Model. She will have a great future on the runway. She has poise, she has grace, she clearly has wonderful genes. I whipped up her little ensemble yesterday and she loves it. The bloomers sport her initials on the bum. Tried to get a picture of this, but the tot simply stuck her rear in the air to show off her monogram. Wasn't exactly a flattering pose. She is beautiful. Don't forget to kiss somebody you love today.
