Monogram Me

What is it about having my name on things that makes it seem so special? I think I have some deep rooted issue with wanting safe ownership of my stuff. I'm sure you wouldn't have to dig too far into my psyche to figure out the reason (allison!). I don't know why my underdeveloped teenage mind couldn't figure this out:

be decent to sister = double the wardrobe

We became pretty good at sneaking each other's stuff, but equally as good at catching each other. One day Allison's junior high bus was driving past my high school and she saw me strutting my stuff in her sweater. No way out of that one.

When I realized my sewing maching could embroider, I thought of a dozen projects I'd want to do. These church bags for the girls are probably the only ones that will get done though.

ADORABLE! Where do you keep discovering all these talents? My favorite thing is that you use them to make others happy - how much is Whitney going to adore that bag?! You never cease to amaze, Ash. Was this before or after you spent hours on our photos :)?

I love the bags. Do they come with the sticky crumbs I always find at the bottom of my church bag?

melissa said...

What lucky little ladies to get such sassy bags. It would make me feel better if you could please tell me something you're really horrible at.

Ash! They turned out soooooo darling! I am not even letting Whitney see this post because I want it to be a complete surprise. She gets so excited to have things that came from people she loves. Like porcelain figure from Grandma Barlow, Jeremy's childhood blanket, and now a super-darling bag from Auntie Ashley. Love you!

how could you NOT know that your machine could embroider and with such lovely fonts, too. these are adorable. and now i will go hang my head in sadness just knowing that you can sew also. i thought i had ONE thing up on you. thanks for hammering me down.

Nicole said...

This makes me want to go back to my instruction manual and make sure my machine doesn't do the embroidery thing. Great job! The bags are so sweet.

(Bridget has the red version of that sweater-dress Abbey is wearing in your last post. Great minds...)

I have missed you guys since we have been out of town forever! We will have to get together and let the girls play soon.

Erica said...

Seriously, is there anything you can't do?? Love the bags, love the cute girls who get the bags:)

Erin said...

DARLING! So cute, Ashley! I love them!

Jill said...

I greatly dislike your blog, I always feel so blah after I read it, stop making such cute things will you!
