New Website!

I haven't been sewing or blogging on Flitterbugs much at all in the past few months. Our family grew by 2 more kids in December!
Pop on over to my new site, Raising Littles, to follow our journey!

Satin Sheets are Coming!

I am in the process of adding satin pillowcases and crib sheets to Flitterbugs! I know a lot of Flitterbug momas have little ones with chocolate hair, and want to protect those curls while they sleep. I will be using flannel backed satin, which will give a bit more stability to the sheets and help to keep them secure to the mattress better.
Sooo....what color of satin would you like me to offer? And would you prefer plain hems on the pillowcases, coordinating fabric or ruffles?!?!
Sheets and pillowcases are in the works, be on the lookout for some upcoming satin giveaways!

Psst! Still here!

 Did you notice I sort of....disappeared?
I didn't really mean to! When I took a break from sewing I did not intend to take a blogging break as wel....it just sort of happened:)
I've been busy doing life with my wonderful hubs and 5 sweet littles.
I still stand amazed each day that the Lord has seen fit to bless me by being Kenny's wife and moma to Evangeline, Landis, Samuel, Jordan and Eliana.
I love my little family!

Almost There.....

On Monday, I announced that I would be taking 35 more Flitterbug orders to fund our final adoption expenses......and then would be finished sewing Flitterbugs for this season in life.  
Since then, 20 orders have come in!

Thank you, thank you!

You ladies all love the same fabrics.....of all 20 orders placed, a total of 2 different fabrics have been chosen. Can you guess which ones they are?!?!

My wonderful hubs is cheering me on in this last sewing stretch, and we are going to do a "mini" week of school next week.......as I finish these final orders.

Thank you for allowing me to sew for your little ones......I'll take 15 more orders....and that will be the end for now. Pop on over to see the available fabrics and styles if you would like to place a final order.


Thank you for being a part of Flitterbugs and our peanut's journey home!

Change of Plans....Not Finished Yet..........

 A couple of weeks ago I announced that I was going to quit sewing for a season....time to be just wife and momma in my home. I took several last orders....sewed all weekend.....and was ready and happy to put the Flitterbug patterns aside for awhile!
Just as I was taking my *last* order....our final, final expenses related to the twins adoption came in. In all honesty, my first thought was "nooooo! I am finished....ready to give my 100% of my time to my husband and kids!"  After a quiet time of prayer, and good insight and encouragement from the hubs, it became apparent that necessity would demand I sew a little bit longer.
In a nutshell, we are 35 Flitterbugs away from being finished with the peanuts adoption:)

As He always does, the Lord has given me the strength and energy to finish strong, and as he always does, the hubs is cheering me on!
I have no idea how many more days of sewing lie ahead.....I know the Lord can bring the last 35 orders in a matter if minutes if He sees fit.  As soon as I reach my goal....the sewing is done for this season!
I am going to do things a bit differently for this last big push.I typically purchase all of my fabric before posting them.  In order to not end up with any extra fabric that must be sold to cover expenses, I will be purchasing fabric as the orders come. I have chosen mostly Christmas fabrics....as I have had numerous requests for some holiday sewing! I have also changed the style selection to better fit winter/Christmas garments. Pop over to the home page to see what is available!
All of the fabric is high quality designer fabric, and because I will paying full price for these fabrics....I cannot offer sale prices on the garments. The prices listed on the home page is what I will need to sale them for!
Thank you for all who have ordered a Flitterbug over the past 2 years and have helped to bring our babies home. We are now 35 Flitterbugs away from the finish line........an unexpected last hump, but one we know the Lord can carry us across quickly!
Thank you for giving me the privilege of sewing for your children!
