Stitching away... {Lulu & Co.}

Summer has been keeping us super busy but I have to say I've really enjoyed this Summer so far!  We've gone on lots of little day trips exploring near and far places and I just love spending time with my little family!

I'm behind on posting Hudson's birthday pictures {working on them NOW!} but here's a little sneak peek...
In between going here and there, working, and keeping up the home, I've been sneaking little snippets of time to make some fun applique shirts and tanks.

This was Grace's "Princess Leia" tank that I started a little after midnight the day of Hudson's birthday!!!  I only had about an hour before I just had to hit the sack, so I didn't even get to stitch around it, but it was wearable and she loved it! 

I hand sketched it in a hurry and I think it sort of resembles a Lalaloopsy girl, but she said it was "Leia-ish" and that she liked her "swirly twirly hair buns" so I guess it's okay after all.  I plan to finish it soon *famous last words*...
And then there are these super fun state tanks that I've decided to start making.  This one was for a sweet friend's little girl and she loved it!  Yay!
They are easily dressed up {think maxi skirt} or down {athletic shorts} and look super cute layered.  I use Gap tanks because I like their quality better.  And of course, they are hand stitched for that personal touch :)  State tanks are $30 shipped.  I'm taking a limited number of orders on the tanks in girls sizes XS to L.  Send me an email if you'd like one...several fun colors to choose from!
July is going to be a whirlwind, hence why I'm taking a break from birthday hats.  We've got VBS, then school camp, then a work trip, then Mother-Daughter-Grands trip, and hoping to squeeze in one more family vacay before the school bells start ringing!  Here's a little hint about one of our trips...adorable top made by my friend Sara!
And then there is a certain PopSiCLe ParTY the little pumpkin is begging me to have....we'll see!
Hope you're making memories with your littles every chance you get!
