Back to the Future

It’s been a long time coming, but my embroidery machine has been repaired and I’m back, baby!  I have a few listings back on Etsy.  I started with EVMB designs that were most inquired about while I was “on vacation”.  The Baptismal/Christening Onesies and the Drinking Buddies Onesie (St. Patrick’s Day version).  Please go check them out.  If you have an upcoming baptism or christening to attend the Baptismal/Christening Onesies would make a great gift and keepsake.

In the meantime, I’m working on my pattern making skills with a simple version of the Coachella short and I have designs in the works for some boho baby fashions using organic muslin fabrics.

Our family is in the process of moving to a new nest, but as soon as we are settled I hope to start posting DIY blogs and videos to help you keep up with the latest trends for your little one.

New this week:

easy sewing tips · EV blog · for boys · for girls · patterns and tips cheatsheet (web links) · tutorials and guides · Uncategorized

…and here is your first tutorial link!

Ahhh, so I noticed, in my “About” page, that I would offer tips and tricks for the beginning sewer.  Since I’m a beginner myself, I’ve noticed good help is hard to come by… except for the occasional tutorial on YouTube, but even then you have to have a pretty substantial background in sewing.  For instance, the most popular tutorial search that I make when I sew is “how to add a zipper”, but you have to know what type you want to do (lapped, invisible, centered, etc…) and you install zippers at the end of your project which makes it oh-so-tricky because if you screw it up… well, you’ve just screwed it all up.  Crap!

So, I thought the first tutorial link should be the easiest and most requested by mothers.










Shew… I know, I worked really hard on this post for you guys;)

Actually, I didn’t at all… in fact, I didn’t even make sure that the link to to tutorial worked.  Good grief!  Never fear, all is working perfectly well now!

Isn’t he a cutie?  I was assured that the hat does fit him, it was just excitedly put on top of his wee little head;)

Thanks for the support!

Here she is!

This lovely lady is Miss Elizabeth or little Lizzie, as I like to call her;)  She is the beauty that got the ball rolling here at Elleciel Vert BABY, so she is very special!  In this photo she is wearing the very first tutu made by EV/me.  It is dry-clean only, unfortunately.  I discovered this when I subsequently made one for Phoebe, washed it, dried it, and discovered that it had shriveled into a wad of horror.  I chalked it up to lesson learned, but you know, sometimes I still forget to check the launder instructions when I go to buy fabric.  Plans are in the making for Lizzie’s super-fluffy wash and wear tutu!

And this handsome young man is Lizzie’s older brother.  He is SuperDan!

He’s saving the world… one hot chick at a time!

Thanks again, Renee!
