Tractor  Picture Smocking Design
And here he is ready for Santa in his
Christmas romper...This is the "O
Christmas Tree" pattern. Nicole says she
had to crop it down to fit the pattern. If
any of you have that problem in the
future, email me and let me know the
size panel you need and I will, if possible,
resize the design.  Hearing from you will
also help me design future plates that
will better fit your needs.
Thank you Nicole for another job well
Great Job Nicole!!
Nicole Rayburn, of Alabama was kind enough to share pictures of her son and
Smocking project with us. Says that after taking classes at S&R Sewing in
Huntsville, she felt confident enought to tackle her first outfit!
A Childrens Corner "Jeffery" Pattern was used and she made her own piping. I
quote, "I wouldn't say this is an easy project, but if I can do it , it can't be that
Dear Elizabeth
I enclosing a picture of the baby quilt I made
with the design you digitised for me of the
large sunbonnet. The design has sewn out
perfect and I'm sure you will agree it looks
superb. I am very grateful for all your help in
making it possible
Many thanks
Best wishes

I received this very nice letter from Irene
Connolly. She needed this design digitized in a
large frame but it was so busy that the sweet
Sunbonnet was completely lost!  In order to make
her show up we had to do a triple hooping!
But it was worth it...It turned out beautiful...
The finished size was 12" x 12"
Thank you Irene for letting us show your
beautifull did a beautiful job!
I apologize for the picture, it's a little
greenish, but this is the 2 piece white
crinkle cotton I have on my
page. I took one of them and put my
Tropical Fish on it...It turned out cute
This  is the top and bottom of a quilt I put together for a friends baby...I
used appliques of
"Circus, Circus" and "Stuffed Toys".
I used yellow strips and inserted yellow rickrack in each square. I
photographed it beforeI had the quilting designs put in......

Cherie Schneider sent me this picture of a dress
she made using the free Elephant Smocking..
Good work Cherie, you did a fantastic job of
lining up the 3 hoopings.
This is a gift I made for a
friends new baby featuring my
jersy bib and my double seated
panty...don't they make a cute
gift combo? You will find them
on my blanks page.
My Scottie Dog Smocking on a little
shoulder tie Batiste Top... I made this
for my grandaughter...( 2 weeks old,
but she will grow into it..lolol)
This is one of the plates I bought from you  
but without the little flowers in the center of
the design,  I left those off as I didn't think
they went with this particular fabric
selection. I just left the pleating threads in,
on the unsmocked middle area!!!!
Sara used the "Floral" Smocking
design. Notice the pleats how
perfect they are....You did an
outstanding job Sara!
My Florida Gator Dress
I used your Gator smocking plate (just no birds)
and changed the threads so they matched UF's
Orange and Blue colors....we were quite pleased
with how nicely it came out-now I just have to
make one for Fiona:)
The pattern is the Valentine's dress in #104
SB--with a few minor alterations:)
I was really pleased with how nicely this plate
stitched out!
