It's beginning to look a lot like....

Christmas! WOO HOO! This is my favorite time of year. Beginning with Halloween through New Year's. Such a fun time.
I've been busy working on some Christmas themed items :) Blessings...(aka linen towels), onesie's, bibs, t's...
I'll post pictures of the t's and of the dress Mom and I are making for my niece when they are finished.
Let me know if you are interested in having me do anything for you!

Got Gifts?

It's been a long time since I've posted - I've still been sewing...I've just been lazy about posting any updates :(
I've had several orders for Christmas gifts and have been making a few myself! It's such a fun creative outlet for me! And, as we prepare our home for our own makes me so excited to think of what I can do for my own little one!!!
I think this may be the cutest thing I've made in a long time...and, Ally, my apologies that you always see Reagan's gifts before she gets them!!!
This is an apron I made for Rob's cousin, Reagan. She's almost 18 months and such a doll!

I've also been busy with hats and little girl shirts:
I also recently made a shirt for a friend's little boy who is turning 1 soon. I think it will fit little Monkey Landon perfectly :):

Other cute ideas for Christmas or birthday gifts that I've had are:

Christmas shirts - with a tree, ornament or angel and the child's name
Mother/Daughter aprons, sister aprons
Big Sister/Brother, Little Sister/Brother shirts (we'll be doing one for Emma for my little one that says Big Cousin or Best Cousin)
hats (like Jack's above)
tote bags (I'm working on one now and will post a picture when it's complete)
pillow cases for little noggins to rest on
framed monogrammed material with a pretty mat (this may be something we do for our nursery...)
hand towels
finger towels
Just a few ideas I have swirling around in this little head of mine!!! Mom and I are working on a Christmas dress for Emma and I will be sure to post pictures when it's complete!

Hope everyone is doing well and getting excited about this Holiday season starting up!

Don't forget Halloween - I can still crank out some cute Halloween treats if you need them!

Yay for Fall!!!

I love the fall - such beautiful weather and you don't sweat the second you step outside! The older I get - the more I hate the heat (maybe it's just the humidity)...and being pregnant this summer - albeit just my first trimester - I just couldn't take the heat. It was probably a combination of 1. My Doc telling me not to get in the water, 2. the nausea and 3. the humidity. Anyhoo...I'm really glad it's fall...Give me some college football and the fast approaching holiday season!!!

I have made several UGA shirts - they're posted on my facebook page...and I made this shirt for my test kid, Emma :)

Happy Halloween, everyone! (oh, and GO DAWGS!) (Also, not the best picture quality - I took it with my iPhone...).

Boys Galore!!!

Boys, boys, boys!!!!

Brothers and Sisters!

I made these shirts for my friend, Jill. Brothers and Sisters can dress alike!!!

I also made some for Tammie - I'll upload her pictures when I get them! Jill -if you don't mind having C and R's pics on here, I'd love some pics of them, too!

This one's for you, Lauren

My friend, Lauren, asked me about monogramming a sheet. We weren't sure how it would, here you go, girlfriend :)

I've been busy....

Figuring out this new machine!!! At first, I was very frustrated and couldn't get the tension right...Thankfully, I've figured it out and am having a great time! Here are some pics of the things I've done so far...

And my very favorite monogram of all....Miss Emma Lou Who :)

Welcome to TSA Designs! If you are here, it's likely that you are my husband, Mom, Sister or friend!

I've been "sewing" all my life with my Mom, and I've always wanted to tap this creative side of myself. So, after a few stressful years, I am taking the plunge and trying something that I think I will really enjoy.

My sewing machine is scheduled to arrive Tuesday, May 19th! I am super exicted! Once it arrives (I'm sure I'll be up all night Tuesday night playing with it!!!), I will post some pictures of my first creations.

Thank you for looking up my blog!
