Ladybug Baby Announcements

Every now and then, I get to work on something special for teeny tiny people, and it’s extra special when it’s for a former wedding client’s growing family!

Jessi knew that she wanted to use a fabric with ladybugs on it for her baby girl’s announcements, so I scoured my fabric sources and we came upon this fun, vibrant, modern print.

We brought the fun colors and polka dots into the card and outer band design…

Star-Themed Blue Linen Baby Announcement

I love it when clients become friends, and I just heard from a past bride that she’s expecting her second child soon and would like us to help her with her birth announcements!

This made me realize that I’ve been quite bad at sharing the work we’ve done for our tiniest clients, so here is a bright blue linen birth announcement we made for the darlingest little baby boy with a star-themed nursery!

The “It’s a boy!” tag is wrapped around the linen sleeve with baker’s twine, and the printed announcement card slides in and out from an opening the right.

Fabric Inspiration : Spring Wedding Inspiration

Spring has arrived, and here is a little Easter fabric inspiration to celebrate! I love the playfulness of this colorful raindrop print. Wouldn’t this be cute for a spring-themed event? Perhaps an adorable baby or bridal shower!

Swatch Collage : Baby Fabrics…for Me!

Hello blog! It’s been months since I last posted, which just means there’s a healthy backlog of beautiful fabrics, custom invitations, and fun news to share in the coming weeks.

The first big piece of news is that in about three months, I will be a mommy! Yup, we are finally joining the world of happy parents out there, which is huge and very exciting.

And of course, me being me, what am I really excited about right now? Picking out fabrics for the baby room! I’ve been browsing tons of beautiful nursery inspirations, numerous huggable fabrics, yummy color palettes, and this is what I’ve landed on…at least for now.

Though I will be taking some time off with the new baby, we do still have limited availability to work on a couple more custom designs before I turn into a pumpkin toward the end of April…so definitely let me know if you’ve been eyeing some fabric invitations for your upcoming event!
