Weekend Wrap-Up: Robots and Princesses Oh My!

I actually had a pretty productive weekend, and that makes me happy. A friend of mine is having a Wall-E birthday party for her soon-to-be 4 year old, and that got me to thinking about robots. I already have the adorable Michael Miller "Robots" fabric that turns into such cool crayon rolls, but what other robot-type things could I do? So I did a little research while Daddy had the kids on Sunday, and this is what I came up with:

Aren't they fun? I fell in love with them as soon as I saw the design (thanks Embroidery Library!). I only had a chance to make two of them, but there are 6 of them in the set. I can't wait to make a small army! They measure about 4 inches tall, so I'm thinking they would be awesome party favors. I promised a set to a friend of mine who is having a baby boy; the nursery theme is space and robots. Perfect! Anyway, I just had to gush a little bit. They'll be doing the robot into the shop soon!

I also decided that it was time for a new Princess bib design. Again, did a little research, and this is what I found:

I think it's way cuter than the previous design; a little more modern, maybe? This bib is in the shop now. Personalization is available!

So that's what I've been working on. I just had a large order for personalized lunch totes which I'm very excited about, so that will be keeping me busy over the next few weeks. But don't worry, I also have some other ideas I'll be working on. I'm also trying to get the super-cute monster pillows up in the shop soon, as well as the tissue cases. Maybe a few other things? Who knows!
