A Very Happy Customer

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Thanks to Holly for sending in this photo of her happy husband. She had me design a T-shirt quilt for his birthday. They have been collecting T-shirts since the beginning of their relationship. It was a huge surprise for him and I'm so glad he loved it!

He is a tall man, glad the quilt is big enough!

A T-Shirt Quilt!

Tuesday, July 3, 2012

Cutting all the T-shirts apart

A month or so ago...I was shipped a very large box. Inside were 42 T-shirts and 2 button down shirts and one barn jacket. They were treasured clothing items from a dear friend's husband. He is a very tall man so the shirts were quite large. I was asked to make a T-shirt quilt for a birthday present for him. I am so excited to show you the process and how it turned out. I love making items like this because they are so sentimental and personal. It turned into something really special for the two of them. Memories sown together to be cherished and used for years to come.

If you are interested in turning your old T-shirts into something beautiful, contact me: monica@sookeedesigns.com

All the extra T-shirt pieces

My bed became the holding area - getting all the pieces separated into different sizes
Trying to lay out a pattern that works. Sorry about the strange angle - this quilt is very BIG!

Sweet Dresses

Recently a friend inquired about dresses for little girls. I love coming up with new items so I took the project on. She wanted coordinating dresses for her sweet nieces. I really enjoyed this project because it's the first time I created my own pattern. I loved the way they turned out. I hope you do too! I need to make these for my girls now. My friend, Rebecca, Mi Vida Photography took the beautiful pictures!
