On Hiatus

Most of you are aware that the Hubs job has him away a lot which leaves me with the kids the majority of the time. I work at Nap time and Bedtime on orders. Since we have moved to Georgia it has been a constant struggle for me to balance it all. I am going to take some time off from Custom Orders and focus on my kids, and the home. With another move on the horizon I am not sure when I will be back to taking Custom Orders. I will keep my Etsy shop open as most of the items there are Ready To Ship. I hope you all will understand and stay with me when the time is right to start at it again! I can't thank you all enough for your support and love you have shown by sharing my little hobby with others. If you have placed an order it will be completed. I am always available for questions or concerns at kalicocrafts@gmail.com

October FUN!

I don't remember if I posted pictures of this Custom Pillow or not but, these are with the Good Camera! A friend asked me to make a pillow that coordinated with her sons bedding but, that was functional as well. I had made a heat transfer onesie for them with this design. Of course he ruined it before he left the hospital as most newborns do. LOL! So, I recreated it on the embroidery machine and added a solid Minky back. This is one of those projects that when I finished I couldn't wait for her to see!!
My youngest just had a birthday. After asking her at least 100 times who she wanted on her birthday shirt she consistently answered with Muno from Yo Gabba Gabba! She's had a recent LOVE for him. Here is the design I came up with. I added a little Mylar to his eye to make it shimmer a little since the cotton fabric had some shine to it already. 
Here she is in her shirt and ready to celebrate!

Custom Dora Birthday Tee

 Another Creatively Amazing Friend wanted to make a Snow White Cape for her daughter. I made her a 6x10 patch to put on the back! Can't wait to see the final product!

Jasmine Birthday Tee

Cookie Monster Birthday Onesie

Happy Fall Y'all! I added Mylar to this as well as an experiment. There ended up being a little shimmer to the design.

Thor Hammer Cape for my cousins son who is going to be Thor for Halloween! LOVE how this turned out!

Brother and Sister Birthday Tees. Mom had already bought a Hello Kitty iron on to add to the Pink 3!

Something Fun! Ran across the idea from Pinterest and when I saw these socks BAM!, I had to do it! these are an Adult pair of socks sewn into a pair of toddler tights!!

Custom Onesie! I added Glitter Vinyl to the design!

It's FALL!! My FAVORITE time of year! I have been asked in the past to make football tees for girls. The designs are always evolving. In the beginning just added ruffles to the butt of a onesie. As time has gone on and my machine capabilities have grown, so has the designs. Here is the new Little Lady Football Tees. Below are some of the teams that I have completed. 
DA Bears!

Sock Monkey Tooth Fairy Pillow

Once again, I was asked if I could come up with a design for a Sock Monkey Pillow! After searching for the perfect applique design that I could purchase to use it was on! Here is the final product and a few other custom orders completed in the last couple weeks.

I am also offering NEW sizes in the pillows. Above right is the difference between the Large (10 inches square) and the Medium (8 inches square). Small would be 6 inches square

A friend found out she was going to be an Auntie and wanted to send a Congratulatory gift. They are from Illinois (could ya guess?). They are a house divided when it comes to baseball! Introducing the House Divided Burp Cloth!

Custom Batman Cape with Initial in the Batman Emblem.

One of the most useful gifts! Hooded towels, they will last at least until they are 6 or 7!
