Retake and bag...

Well, I thought I'd repost the chair I recovered and painted...
I love this chair and part of me hopes it doesn't sell, but I need to sell it for my trip to Haiti!
So, if you feel so inclined to bless the socks off some little child, particularly a girl, drop me a note @ designsbydaune at yahoo dot com!

The price tag on this darling chair is: $150, plus shipping.

I have made a few more bags, but only one is finished.  It's a smaller one:

Going back to the free blogger account for now!

Well, it looks like my account for the designsbydaune.com expired!  I've attempted to fix it, but for now, I'm going to keep the free account, until I have time to set up another website! 
Thanks for your patience!

Haiti Bacpacks for Sale!

Well, I'm heading to Haiti in November and in order to raise money, I've made these bags and am wanting to take orders.  Donations begin at $15.

One last dress before they get here!

I do hope this fits Hailey!  I only have to make the hat to match and then I'm FINISHED! 

I love these buttons!  Just what I wanted for her...the thought of warm weather and flip flops!

Four more days and then the fun begins!!!

Oh, the colors, the design...I love it!  My hope is that it fits her!  If not, her big sissy gets another dress!

Just for the girls...

Oh, my!  How excited I am that my girls will all be here in less than a month...and to celebrate their visit, I am making each of them something..
THIS one is for Patience:  it's kind of blurry, but that's ok...in case my daughter sees it, I don't want to totally give it away.

Then there's one for Hailey...that's for another time...

Another Yoga Bag

I've been slowly getting busy with sewing again.  It's taken me a while to complete this project 'cuz I pick it up, put it down and then go take a picture!  I'm not sure which I like more...I think photography is really my passion, but Designs by D.a.u.n.e. will keep me busy for years, too!

Price:  $40!  Now, that's a steal!!!

OH, I've been working hard~

Ok, so I took a pair of little girl leggin's from a friend and used them as a pattern and then added my own design to distinguish them from any other pair out there...particularly since I made them and they're a 'one of a kind'~

Curly little ruffle on the bottom~

These leggin's are for a little one about a year or eighteen months old, depending on how chubbie their thighs are!!!  They're made from stretch knit and very soft. 
Price:  $15.50, including shipping.

One can't have a cute pair of leggin's without a tutu to twirl in!
It matches perfectly!  Just adorable...!

 Very full!!!
Price:  $40, including shipping.
Well, one can't just design for little girls, right? 
So, in order for the boys to feel that I have their gender in mind, I designed a 'tool apron' for the little boys.  Of course, the twins are way too big for this one, but perhaps you know a little guy that loves to build and needs a place for all his tools!
The back is lined and very durable for those times when he's constructing a fort or playing in the dirt pile, digging up rocks and storing in the pockets~
Price:  $12, including shipping.
What I love about these jammies is that they're a 'one of a kind'...
This was all the fabric they had at JoAnn's, so I snatched it up and I only wish I had enough to make myself some!~

These jammies are about a size seven for girls. 
This is a flannel fabric and very soft, with two side pockets.
 Price:  $30, including shipping.

Moving on...
A crayon apron with a matching coloring book bag!  Completely Texan!

   The waistband is made of ribbon and measures 46", enough to make a cute bow in the back for a girl between two years old and five, I believe. 

Price: $35, including shipping. 

Well, I must get back to pricing tags for the shop these are going in tomorrow. 
Remember, these are 'one of a kind' creations, so if you're interested, please let me know a.s.a.p.~

Little Girl Full-sized apron!

My news?  I'm now selling my 'goodies' in DIY Factory on San Pedro as of Feb. 4th!  Sooo, I've been 'in stitches' for days making many different things.  I finished this apron way too late to tell!  But it was quiet and with no interruptions!

Totally colorful and crayony!  Is that a word?  I just love this one.  Some little girl is going to want to color up a storm with this full apron, complete with crayons and a pocket to keep her treasures in.

Things are happening!

Oh my word!  I am so excited.  I can't share yet or upload pix cuz, for one thing, my wonderful camera is in the shop getting cleaned up! 
But suffice to say, I'm working like crazy at finishing up stuff for what's ahead...
As soon as I get more info, I'll share my news...
I'm finishing up an adorable  ® Crayola crayon full apron that ought to go quick...and yesterday I finished three projects...a ® Crayola print pennant and two different camouflage boy tool/apron belts...so stinkin' cute!
Thought I'd post since it's been forever...I have made a few more things, but they'll have to post after I get my camera back...
Until then, keep your life in stitches...life is too short not to enjoy every thread of it~
