Fourth of July Completed Projects!

Finally! Pictures of the completed projects for the custom order I have been working on. :)
And, I just got an email from my customer, she got her package today and is very excited to say the least.

Old fashioned 4th of July bunting for across the porch railings.

Some kitchen towels. I didn't know whether she wanted tea towels or regular towels, so I made both and gave her, her choice. She took two of each.

Notice both sets of towels are trimmed with fabric used on other items.

A complete miniature bib apron to hang in the kitchen from a hook.

A new cushion for the high chair so it is all coordinated.

Kitchen chair cushions.
Oh, when I get tired it comes out chicken care cushions, lol. :)
I made four of these.

Cushions for the rocker, along with an accent pillow.
I made four of these as well.

A custom table cloth, notice the white checked fabric ties in all of the other checks and plaids.
I ended up making this twice as the first one was just a hair too short and you could see the skirting under the table. The more I thought about it, the more it bugged me, so, I did it again and I think it's pretty cute, if I do say so myself. :)
My absolute favorite pieces of the whole project.
The porch swing.
Yes, that cushion is tufted, it really looks like it could be full scale, don't you think?
Originally, I had a different striped fabric, but ran across this one, that is much more to scale.

Okay, so sometimes my perfectionism drives me nuts, but it does pay off when it comes to making miniatures.

My customer is so happy! I have to keep her around, she is marvelous for my ego. Yup, she has more work for me to do. She is the best customer ever! I could not have asked for a better customer for my first custom order experience. :)

She promises to send pictures of it all, all in place, so you will have to wait to see it.
I didn't show any pictures of the swags and rosettes, as you really need to see them in their setting to fully appreciate them.

Next time, another little custom order I just did. :)
I'm liking this custom stuff. :)


  1. It's all beautiful, Dale. I can't wait to see your customer's photos!

  2. Everything is just beautiful! Looks very summery too :)

  3. Thank you both! It's so exciting to be able to show it all here. :)


I love to hear what you have to say! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. :)
