Embroidery: Custom orders

While I am taking somewhat of a hiatus with custom embroidery orders right now, I recently finished up the last of the orders I had from this summer.
Here’s a little peek at them.

A custom birth announcement. The coolest thing about this one is that it is the 3rd I’ve done for this family. I did two last year for a pair of sisters and their family welcomed another baby girl this spring. It was such a gift to be asked to create this third for the trio.



A 50th anniversary. I had a daughter come to me and ask for a custom 50th anniversary portrait. This one was based on the one I did a couple of years ago for my aunt and uncle’s 60th. I even was able to find a matching metal oval hoop!


The theme for this one was daisies. So I had fun stitching loads and loads of lazy daisies!


Here’s a close up of the bride and groom.

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.

Custom Embroidery: An Extended Family

Back in October a customer approached me about stitching up over half a dozen portraits of her extended family. I spent the months leading up to the holidays stitching them up. It was such a privilege to be asked to do such an order and I had such fun creating each one.

Here’s a peek at a few of them.
