Embroidery: Wedding Season Has Begun

Everyone in my house knows when wedding season has begun by the stacks of shoeboxes that show up on our front porch! I’ve been super busy trying to keep up with all these custom embroideries, but I love it. Here’s a glimpse at some of the shoes I’ve done so far this spring.

chambray toms

These TOMS came with a great story about that little owl up on the top. It was a tribute to the bride’s grandmother. I love little special touches like that!


Mrs. Wild custom converse

I wish I kept count for how many pairs of these mint colored Converse I’ve stitched over the past few years. Definitely the most popular color.


Mrs. Clark custom converse

Mrs. Clark is getting married 🙂


monogrammed converse

It’s not all just wedding shoes around here! These were some custom monogrammed shoes for a local 13 year old. I really love how they turned out!

Something blue…

These lacey Keds are some of my favorites. I’ve done a couple pairs of them and I love how they turned out.

And the biggest news is that after nearly 3 years of working in my dining room I am FINALLY moved back into my “new/old” studio space. We still have some work to do (trim, painting, hanging shelves etc) but all of my sewing stuff is finally in one spot and I am so relieved! Today was my first day of “working” down there officially and man it’s awesome. Here it is while I was bringing everything down and trying to get organized…



And here it was this morning 🙂
