Girly Valentine Goodies

I love Valentine’s Day and I have been having so much fun getting ready for it this year. I have a couple fun decor items to show you, but this post is going to be about all the girly goodies I’ve been working on! I got a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas (Woohoo! Dustin is awesome!) and I finally got the courage to show it who is the boss. I’ve totally been scared of it! Wimp, I know.
This is Maycie’s Valentine’s shirt:
I used my Silhouette to cut out the iron-on vinyl and ironed it right on. I love it and Dustin does too. :) He calls Maycie his little sweetie all the time, so I thought this was fitting.
A couple weeks ago, I was asked to make some matching Valentine’s dresses for some cute girlies. Their mom is great and just lets me run with the ideas in my head. Here is one of the dresses:
I LOVE this fabric! It was exactly what I had in mind and I love how the dresses turned out. Big sister’s dress is the very same, I just don’t have a picture of it.
Of course, they need new bows to match their new dresses:
Those mini-korkers are my favorite bows right now. Love them! Their so tiny and dainty and are absolutely adorable with pigtails. Big sister’s bows are obviously bigger. The darker pink ribbon has some shimmer to it that you can almost see in the picture. I don’t usually make bows this big, but I don’t complain when someone requests one. Bigger is better, right?
I’ve also made up a couple more shirts for Valentine’s and a big stack of bows for my Etsy shop (You can see some of the bows here on Max & Maycie’s facebook page). The bows aren't listed in my shop yet, but the shirts are!
I have so many more ideas in my head. I’ve got my fingers crossed that I can find time to finish a few more before Valentine’s Day.

Thanks so much for reading!
