Recent Rufflings ...

If I had a penny for every time I was going to redesign this site ... or just keep up with the most recent photos of some of the things I was working on ... hmmm ... I could probably hire someone to keep me up to date :-)
I do post much of what I am working on to my family blogsite and to my facebook page ... and not here. {Apparently I can juggle TWO sites ... but three is a bit harder.} If you'd like to become my facebook friend or would like to know my other site, just drop me a note/comment. With all this social media ... I just don't always keep up in all the sites simultaneously.
I will do a quick update now though.

Some recent dresses that have made it across the path of my sewing machine lately ...
I do have additional fabric if these aren't in the sizes that you are looking for. And these dresses themselves are available for purchase. Just leave me a note or email me at almquist{at}fmtcs{dot}com   of course removing the { } in the address.

Night Air: 3T

Sweet Ping: 3T

 This beautiful set was made for a sweet sister and her new little sister!

And it was SOOOOO sweet to see them IN their dresses on the day they officially became sisters! 
I cannot tell you how deeply my heart is touched to see my dresses ON the little girls they are made for.

And I am working on a new project. I was hoping to have it done before Easter ... but I'm still working out the details ... here's a continued sneak peek:

It's a little stuffed owl with Chinese characters on his wings, feet, eyes and beak. I plan on using a combination of other fabrics for his belly and face. On his back there is a pocket for stowing an Ipod or markers, or other little treasures. Each one will have a verse of encouragement.

Some New Fabrics for the New Year

I'm SUPER excited about the new fabrics that I just received ... I'll be deciding on what to make soon, but if you already know you want something with any of these, leave me an email and let me know what size you might like.
Or if you just want to leave a comment that you like the fabrics as much as me that'd be great too!

Valentines Day is right around the corner ...

Me either. But I am looking forward to celebrating the upcoming Christmas season! And I would LOVE to make you something special for your special someone this Christmas.

Ruffled Feathers as a Monday Montage Feature

My little sewing company, "Ruffled Feathers Company," is the "Monday Montage" feature this week at Scarlet Threads! 

You are probably well aware of the beautiful aprons, jewelry and other delightful things that Scarlet Threads creates as a fair trade company benefiting women and their families in China ... and if you haven't heard of them, you NEED TO CHECK IT OUT pronto! And as an extra incentive, if you mention the code "lex25" for reading about them here, you will receive a discount on your Scarlet Threads purchase! You can find Scarlet Threads by clicking the colored text above or here:

So Welcome! if you are visiting for the first time and welcome back if you're a bookmark friend of old. I'm trying to get a few things sewn for the start of an etsy shop, so do make sure to bookmark me so you hear when that opens.

In addition to the post preceeding this one I want to add my newest favorites: 

"Tangerine Dreams: Asian Inspiration"
This is its debut post, and it is still available for purchase! (as is some more yardage for another dress or two in case you need a different size.) This one is a 3T and makes me wish I was a 3T.

Knot Top ($28) and Ruffle Pants ($22)

 Matching AG Bitty Baby dress ($18) and shirt ($6)
(also available AG 18" doll outfits)

I have lots of things from skirts, knot dresses, dolls, long sleeve shirts with ruffles, tank tops with ruffles, ruffle pants, ruffle shorts, doll outfits (dresses and skirts) Leave me a comment or email me with your wishes and I'd be happy to make some sweet and special just for you! :-)

*And remember, it's never too early to be thinking ahead to Christmas. Since all my things are hand made they do take a bit of time to create (especially when hockey season starts up for my boys!) If you think you might be interested in something, feel free to put a bug in my ear. I'm always looking for started ideas when I want to make something but I'm just pulling sizes or fabric combos out of the air.
