Guest Blogger RaeAnna and a Contest!

Today you are in for a special treat!  I'd like you to meet my dear friend, RaeAnna, from Sewing Mama RaeAnna.  She is such a sweet person who always has a smile on her face.  Her appliqued t-shirts and outfits inspired me to purchase my own embroidery machine, and she has been so supportive and helpful when I've had problems using it!  Thanks, RaeAnna!

I've invited her to stop by and share with you one of her latest projects--Boutique Bows decorated with Felties!  And without further ado, here is RaeAnna!

Hello SewVery friends!  I am soooooooooo thrilled to be Veronica's very first guest poster! woo hoo!!!

My name is RaeAnna and I blog at Sewing Mama RaeAnna.

I first started following Veronica when she did Shorts on the Line.  It didn't take us long to become friends in real life!  We have had so much fun getting together for playdates!!  Our 3 year olds are so cute when they play together!  My son lights up when I tell him we are going to go see Ella!

And I'm still glad she's my friend after witnessing my 3 year old's tantrums. Aren't our kids supposed to know that they are supposed to act like angels all the time! haha!

I get so excited and passionate about sewing and I love that I have a blog to "let it all out!"  It's been fun to get to know other like minded moms and learn new sewing tricks from each other!  

My latest craft obsession uses my embroidery machine to make felties!!! I'm still learning about my embroidery machine - it's so much fun to see the adorable designs on the clothes and t-shirts I make for my kids!  And you know what looks great with cute clothes and t-shirts.......BOWS! :)

I've posted a tutorial on my page today on how you can create your own boutique bow using the techniques I've found most successful.  But before you come over to my page, please enter the contest here at sewVery for a chance to win a set of feltie characters for your own bows!!  The winner will receive 2 owl felties and 2 heart felties!  You can also earn an extra entry for liking our Facebook Pages!

Thank you, Veronica, for being such a great friend and blog buddy!

Aren't these felties and boutique bows just adorable?!  RaeAnna was so sweet and gave Ella one to wear during the holidays.  I'll admit, I've never made a boutique bow, but after checking out RaeAnna's tutorial, I will now!  Her tutorial shows you very clearly how to put it all together!  

And while you are visiting over at Sewing Mama RaeAnna, you might as well check out a few of her other tutorials and projects.  RaeAnna makes adorable outfits not only for her children, but also to sell!  

I just love this birthday outfit she made for her daughter's first birthday!  Eva Mae is just too cute!

I'm so glad you came for a visit today, RaeAnna!  Stop by again anytime!


  1. Yes - I am all finished my Christmas shopping and everything is wrapped and posted. Only the turkey to buy now!

  2. I'm getting there. I have all the adults still to buy or make things for and then stocking stuffers yet for the Grandchildren as well. Winning this would take care of two stocking stuffers since it would be perfect for my Graddaughters. I would give each of them a set of them so they could wear them in their hair along with their two matching shirts we bought for them. I thought the older Granddaughter (5 yrs old) would think it's pretty neat to have her cousin (my 10 month old Granddaughter by my other son) herself to wear matching shirts.

  3. Yes, thankfully I am finished! :)

  4. I haven't started shopping! I'm going out later today to shop. Most of what I am giving this year is handmade so I don't have a lot to buy.

  5. Yes my shopping and sewing gifts are done and wrapped. We can enjoy the rest of the holiday with out that stress. These bows are adoarable. Thanks for the tutorial

  6. Just have my parents left to shop for.. Anypd maybe one more gift for my daughter since we didn't get her what she asked Santa for ;)

  7. Almost. My husband is the last on my list.
