Long Time Since Last Post

The Polka Dot Store

Wow, where have the last few months gone? Life here in south Georgia has been crazy busy. Between family and working on the website, I feel like I've hardly had time to do anything else. That said, I want to show you  pictures of some things I have been able to squeeze in time monogram for friends and family. The first picture shows some of the very popular sun hats that are the craze right now.

A friend of mine is having a new grandbaby and they are not telling the name until after the little one arrives. I really wanted to try out a new design I purchased and this is how it turned out.

Another thing that is really popular right now are T-Shirt Pockets. I experimented on some t-shirts for myself and they turned out kind of cute!

The orange and white shirt pockets use Empire font. On the tan shirt pocket the Victor font was stitched on the pocket and Octagonal font was used on the coral shirt. Pretty good for my first attempts, don't you think?

Lastly, I needed new pillows for my sofa..........................I wanted things to look good for a meeting I was having at my house, so I made some out of burlap.

Well, that is what I have been up to lately. Now I need to get back to working on orders. New items have been added to the website so please go on over to

The Polka Dot Store

  and pick out something adorable!

Recent Monograms

The Polka Dot Store

Happy Wednesday! I couple of days ago a customer emailed and asked me to send pictures of 3 Marthas Products that had been monogrammed. Thus, the idea for this blog post was formed. First, let me say I am blessed with wonderful customers. Yea! Second, let me share with you the view I get to look at every morning before I start work.

Pretty good way to start my morning, don't you think? The barn is not ours but the view is free. :)

O.K., on to the monograms. Really, I consider this personalized since they are not 3-Letter Monograms but does it really matter? Nah!

This is a group of 3 Marthas burp cloths each stitched with a different font. Pretty cute and good selections by my customer.

Next, is a group of 3 Marthas bibs. Two of them are Jolly Blue Giraffe stitched in orange thread. The third bib is Baseball stitched in red thread.

This sweet set is from the Jolly Pink Giraffe collection by 3 Marthas. The burp on the left is stitched in the Fishtail Monogram in medium pink thread and the burp on the right is stitched in font 23 in medium pink thread. I think they look adorable and so sweet for a newborn little girl.

In the next two pictures, you will see recent monogrammed items not from the 3 Marthas collection but I thought you might be interested in seeing them.

This is the Blue Lollipop Infant Hat by Little Giraffe monogrammed in the jester font in medium blue.

Some people call this a bodysuit, others call it a onesie, or creeper. Whatever you call it, it is really cute stitched in the Diamond Block font in light blue.

After a busy afternoon monogramming, I think I will take some time tonight to applique some shirts for my grandson. If  the pictures turn out well, that will be another blog post. Until then, I'll close with a pictures from a plant in our yard. There is no doubt I am not a professional photographer but these pictures makes my smile. I hope you have enjoyed this post.

The Surprise

The Polka Dot Store

On Facebook this week I mentioned that I would be revealing a surprise. Here at The Polka Dot Store.com, monogrammed is not outsourced. It is done in-house. Last weekend my husband and I added a new piece of equipment to the store. We purchased a new 6 needle PR 650 Brother embroidery machine! It is incredible and I am having so much fun with it! Here is a picture of our new "baby"...........

New hoops should arrive tomorrow and I can't wait to play with them. The folks at 

www.sewingmachine.com

 are really great to work with.

Here is an order I personalized with the new machine..........

Doesn't it look great! The stitching looks so much better. I loved my other machines but I think I wore them out :).

Monogrammed Bloomers

The Polka Dot Store

Let's talk about bloomers (diaper covers) for little girls.  Nothing is more precious than seeing a photograph of a little girl in a pair of monogrammed bloomers!  Little girls should have bloomers or diaper covers to go with every outfits.  You can pair them with a dress, onesie, tutu outfit, or just worn alone in the summer time.  Below are a few pics of some of the ones I have done recently.

Personalized Little Giraffe Luxe Blanket

The Polka Dot Store

The Polka Dot Store is priviledged to offer blankets, blankys, and burps by Little Giraffe. Little Giraffe offers the very best luxury baby products.  Over the years Little Giraffe has made many changes to their product line but the quality has always stayed top notch.  I recently personalized the Luxe Aqua & White Duo Geometric Blanket.  It has become my new favorite!  The fabric is so soft it is hard to stop touching the blanket.  I'm including several pictures of the finished product. 

Cute Stuffed Bunnies for Easter

The Polka Dot Store

We have just gotten in the cutest stuffed bunnies with long ears that can be personalized on the colored side of one of the ears.  One of these bunnies would look so cute in an Easter basket.  The bunny with the blue on the inside of the ear is called Floppy Longears and the bunny with the pink on the inside of the ear is called Loppy Longears.  They are just adorable!
