I’ve had some questions today about making stuffed animals from loved ones’ clothing or other fabrics. I’m always happy to work with you to make something special, but do want to be sure to have ALL materials for projects needed for Christmas in my hands by OCTOBER 1, if at all possible.

Sometimes looking at recent projects helps motivate me to start new ones! Last week we enjoyed a long-awaited break in Myrtle Beach, and seeing these definitely brings me just far enough back from vaca-mode to begin a day of embroidery.

Some of you are 100% HERE for this skirt! A rectangle of fabric can be magically transformed into a statement piece and—better yet— YOU CAN DO THIS!
I promise you that, with a little time and money, there’s a spot local to each of you that will offer project classes for sewists of ALL ability levels. (Yes, even the “I passed middle school consumer science class because the teacher didn’t want me to be back next year” people.)
Friends in the DMV, I highly recommend Sew Magarbo for project classes, lessons, fabrics, and machines. You don’t need to have a machine or experience. Connect via their page or website, and embrace your creativity. Outside the DMV? Check your local area, and support those small businesses.
I wish I could make these for each and every person wanting their own, but as a one-woman enterprise, there just aren’t enough hours in a day. I have full confidence that YOU CAN DO THIS!

It’s time! 🎉 I’m opening my summer schedule for commissioned keepsake quilts—June, July, and August each have limited a availability. We can plan for anything from 30x30” to 65x75”, and you can be as hands on or hands off as you’d like, structured or crazy, we can work together to get yours made.

Orders for special needs bandana bibs and shirt savers are shipping today to NJ, TX, GA, TN, CT, NY, PA and IN. I love making these for big kids and adults, and am always thrilled to see familiar names as well as new ones. The best, though, is knowing people feel good about using them.

2020 gave it her all (littlest had a broken wrist casted 12/31), but we’re still standing! I’m looking forward to another year of getting to work with and for the most amazing people out there (you), and can’t thank you enough for being part of what brings me joy.

Dumpster Fire Ornament by droolist OR 2020 The Worst virus ugly Christmas ornament, white elephant gift, dirty santa swap, tacky gag gift

Several of you have asked if the 2020 The Worst COVID ornaments and 2020 Dumpster Fires are listed / available to purchase and that’s now a “yes.” As always, half of the proceeds are donated. This year it’s a split between Loudoun Hunger and the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter/LAWS.

Back to school with three little humans in three grades and two schools has been a challenge, but being able to make beautiful things between tech issues and “Mom I neeeeed” has been ... the air needed to breathe. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared some of the projects that really fill my heart. Here are my orders for special needs bibs going out in the next few days. These ...16! will head to six families in as many states for their people with some specific needs related to swallowing difficulties to keep older kids and adults drier while looking their ages. I hope you all have a week of full cups on the way, too.

What a season of life. We are all safe and -relatively- sane. There have been quilts made and masks made, celebrations of birthdays, lives well lived, teeth lost. I’ve been grateful to be part of your milestones throughout —graduations, first communions, weddings and more. I am definitely still working with and for you, and -as always- glad to be part of the journeys.

It’s been awhile, right? I’ve been working day and night, and I bet most of you know why. Let’s talk masks...

I’m definitely making for family & friends in exchange for a donation of resources to help a group we’ve formed in our county (actively making thousands of masks and hats for hospitals, clinics, first responders, etc.) to stay supplied with materials.

We’re all volunteering our time and as many of our own resources as possible, but do need help, and quality fabric is the big need currently. A local shop is getting us 1yd of fabric to use in our donation work, and a mask is made for the fabric purchaser.

Write “Donate all, Droolist / Britta is making our masks,” in the NOTES before checking out, select local pick up (we pick up a couple times a week), and then select the number of yards you’d like to donate.

I’m happy to coordinate with you directly about the color and style of mask(s) you’d like if you’re able to help the group with fabric for frontline folks.

I would love to have 1 yard donated / mask you need. The information I need from you will be in the comments, please copy & paste that into a message & fill it out there so it comes to me here at my business page & I don’t miss anyone’s request.

Her family experienced a loss in 2019, and she wanted to create something special for a family member. We came up with this beautiful, one of a kind piece.

Thank you so much. My Aunt, mom and cousin loved the bears. A beautiful work of art.

Droolist did an amazing job on my memory bear for my Aunt. She loved it along with everyone else in the family. Thank you so much.
Thank you, Britta!!! She loved her special birthday shirt made by you - as always!!!
So many can benefit from this simple but so important item! I think Droolist can make them and @BükaRides Moms can sell or offer to their clients.
I sent a PM. This is my MIL Nancy. First photo was taken at a performance she was in last year (she was 96!) and the second photo was taken earlier this year (she was 97). Admirable woman.
Can't wait to see the Granddaughter wrapped up in it.
Thank you Britta for my Valentines Day outfit! Now to go steal some hearts ❤️❤️
Thank you so much Britta Watters/Droolist. My kids absolutely love them!
I heard that you can turn baby clothes into stuffed animals. What is the cost for this? Do you have any examples? What animals are you able to do?
Thank you so much Britta Watters. My daughter loves her mermaid birthday girl shirt.
