just a few of the things I need to get listed today before the big shopping weekend! If you want to order something directly or something custom, let me know! marypoppinspresents (at) gmail.com
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
as you can see here, I didn't make my fashion design debut at fashion week in NY, but even better!
THE adorable Wendy B of Wendy Brandes Fine Jewelry line as seen here and here, debuted her one of a kind shirt/dress I made for her on Halloween!
practically perfect in every way ;)

today Brookly's mom texted me "got any cute ideas for the cutest elf costume ever for Brookly's school Christmas program?"
Well Nicole, yes I do. I made her an adorable dress from a woman's green t-shirt!
yes I did use hot pink thread, and I did this for 3 reasons:
- I wanted her to have a dress she could wear for the next year or two that wouldn't scream "I'm an elf dress !"
- You can't see the pink thread from the audience (so whew!)
- I'm incredibly lazy and hate changing thread for a new project! (most importantly)

To try and compete with some of the big store sales that have already begun, I am offering everything in my Etsy Shop with Free Shipping in the USA and a $4 flat fee for everywhere else!
This was last week's... or was it the week before that.. hum, these late crafting nights are running together. Anyway, I made these for Jojo to share with her preschool friends for Halloween instead of candy (what? don't make fun - I was sick of candy and scary Halloween things long before the day arrived!)
I forgot to take pics of the ones I made for the girls, but these are the ones I made for my Etsy shop. I put a star charm in the middle of each one that says "Just for You", I thought these would make really special gifts (for teachers or friends) that they would remind the recipient every time they wore it, that is was made and bought lovingly "just for me!" Also the feather accent looks more amazing than I could have hoped for (thanks Kate for letting me reconstruct your original!)
if you guessed curtains: give yourself a gold star!
although I think most of them would fit smaller women, I had the girls with curves in mind (like myself) These are perfect for sizes Large and Extra large!
