Droolist Custom sewing & embroidery for all with a small collection of ready-to-ship items at http://droolist.etsy.com
(23)

Some families have small gymnasts, scientists, or artists. Our family ... we had a droolist. Our third child was a soaking wet mess from 4 months until he was over two years, and I developed some super absorbent dribble bibs to save myself some laundry! Fortunately for me, my solution was able to become a solution for others, and my sewing and embroidery work grew from there. Currently, most of my sewing and embroidery work is done to order with some ready-to-ship pieces from the original line of my dribble bib & baby accessory collection at Etsy (http://droolist.etsy.com). My favorite work is custom work -- bibs for adults and older kids with special needs, special outfits, creative solutions, and "I saw this on Pinterest" project work! From memory animals and pillows to baptismal dresses, and from baby gift sets to birthday shirts, and everything between, I love working to make unique items that are fashionable, functional, and -- of course -- drool-worthy! I look forward to hearing from you! Britta Sincerely, Britta

Embroidery isn’t limited to any one fabric or purpose, and I love the variety of the projects I get to work on in any given week. I’m always happy to talk over ideas and see how we can work together.

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.

It’s definitely sweater season and if you have old favorites you don’t know what to do with, here’s an idea. This fully/lined throw pillow has been a pleasure to make among both larger (stay tuned) and smaller sewing and embroidery projects.

Friends, this is my ONLY show this year. You’re welcome to bring your Xmas stockings to be embroidered /monogrammed and I can have them ready for pick up next week.
I’ll have a limited number of items for sale at a shared table with some of my fellow knotty ladies 😉 who do knitting, crochet, embroidery and more — come see us at the SCES Holiday Shoppe on Saturday.

“Can you embroider the type of stockings we have?”
Whether no cuff, burlap, velvet, faux fur, knits or woven cotton: YES! Drop them off, choose monogram or names, select thread colors, settle on a font with me from a large variety, and have them back in 2-3 days.

Bring your stockings, choose your embroidery colors and font, and I’m happy to take care of the rest. 🎄

I always have a t-shirt quilt of one kind or another going while other projects are in process. When I got a request for a CRAZY quilt for a wild child, I took some ideas from her mom and made possibly the craziest quilt yet. Baby clothes compose both sides, and the asymmetrical piecing along with appliqué work help make it completely one of a kind... and the binding? That’s actually from a blanket and a nursing cover. Missing only one little attachment point— her lovie from the baby days will have a prominent position (but be removable for washing). 💕 👧 😎

My heart is overflowing today. Thanks so much to this guy. His mom shared pictures from the wedding he was in... and that I was invited to help with some functional accessories for. The faux tux front and the chevron bandana bibs were a collaborative effort between his mom and me, but the confidence and style are all his!

One of the things I love most about being a small maker is the ability to take on one of a kind, custom projects. More bridal embroidery is underway, and oodles (that’s the technical term) of Christmas gifts lie ahead.

Working on custom projects is always my favorite! These flowers are going to be beautiful.

Many of you know me for my embroidery or memory bears and t-shirt quilts, but the majority of my Etsy business has always been bibs for older kids and adults with swallowing difficulties. The start of the school year, the holidays and season changes are always busy times, so if it takes me a bit longer to turnaround local projects, this is why. Thirty seven, yes 37, are shipping today and more than that will go next week. It’s always my pleasure to make these special, functional accessories. 💗

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I get to work for the best people around. These bears came to me as clothing and are now back in Illinois as precious gifts. It’s a privilege to create for people who have loved deeply.

I’ve had several inquiries lately regarding baby clothing and what to do with it. If you aren’t ready to invest in a quilt or you only kept a few, favorite pieces, a bear might be the way to go. 🐻❤️

I’m so glad this large T-shirt quilt made it back safe and sound to Washington! It comfortably covers a king bed, and is perfect for all seasons. Thirty years of rides with shirts from nearly all, and one empty canvas in the lower corner for the winner of this fundraising piece to use for their own choice of embroidery or vinyl in the future! What a pleasure to put this together!

For all the big people who have little people out there, take a peek. These terrycloth backpacks unfold to be beach towels! One of my clever clients snagged hers at HomeGoods, so keep your eyes peeled. Think of how much they could carry on their own if they had their own towel-packs!!

06/05/2019

Some of you know this school year has been a little different than others for me. New job & medical issues for hubs, our kids in 4th, K, and PT Preschool, my business, and an 11th hour decision to finally jump in and help my friend Precious Hiyas-Lopez weekday afternoons and evenings at her Ashburn studio, Sew Magarbo, with their after school creative arts program kept me HOPPING!
The only way I could pull this off was having my own kids with me at Sew Magarbo, and they all participated in the programming. I need to tell you, if you’re local and looking for after care that’s more than just a child repository (ooh, I know you know what I mean😂), or stand-alone classes for yourself or your kids, this is a wonderful option.
After wrapping up a year of projects, they’re all working on quilts right now, and I’m super proud of Big Kid. The blocks are hand sewn to join, then he did a self-binding backing and machine quilting to finish. He’s ten.
Whether you’re ten or ten times another number, there’s always something more to learn & there are always people willing to help you. It’s so nice to spend time working where that’s true. 💗💗💗

Oh my gosh!! Spring is... springing?! I’ve been busy, busy, busy and I’ve finally been able to put out The Magic Box! Local clients who do drop off and pick up, it’s that spectacular time of year when you can let me know you’re leaving your unfinished project in The Magic Box and then I can tell you when it’s finished and ready for pick up inside The Magic Box! Ohhh! Aahhh! Sooo fancy!

I’ve had several people asking lately about memory or keepsake bears and other animals, and —YES— I’m happy to work on these for you.
They’re labors of love. I need at least one adult shirt OR other similarly sized items (2+ children’s items, 3-4 baby items, or one hospital blanket) to make most. Current turnaround time is 2-3 weeks, but I expect that to extend a bit again as we head into my busier spring season. With over twenty individual pieces for several of the commonly requested patterns, I work these in between other orders and treat them with the care I’d want my own loved ones’ items treated with—These aren’t ever rushed. All fabrics are stabilized for durability, stitched twice for the same, and stuffed firmly.

01/18/2019

Marie Kondo clearly doesn’t have a sewing business. Today’s urgent order of business is to alphabetize my custom pattern special needs bib orders from 2018 so I can file them. These aren’t my standard patterns (because there’s a nice, organized set for those), only the ones for clients with special requests for particular sizes, closures, or fabric combinations. It’s a little overwhelming to see this much work laid out at one time.
There’s not one of these I pick up without feeling something good. Clearly, I’ll be keeping them all!💗
