While we have had our first snow already here in Southern MN, I can’t complain because we have had fairly nice temps in the 40s. That being said it is the perfect time to get ready for the cold and snow that is winter and will eventually happen! Check out what is new for winter at Clothesline Chic . . .
Right now I am loving patterns from The Velvet Acorn. They are super cute and wearable. I am going to be placing an order soon for some slouchy hats. Check back to see what I’ve decided on and if you have any suggestions I am open to them! Above is the Mylie Cloche’ and I LOVE IT!!! It is for sale for $25. Send me a message to order it or place an order in a different color.
Next up is the Camille Cat Hat and Cowl. Jo picked out this pattern and I love it! She is so excited because it is so soft, fuzzy and warm! The set starts at $35 for a small set. This is also a Velvet Acorn pattern.
The Dylan Fingerless Gloves I can’t keep in stock. They are super cute and customizable. Just let me know what 3 colors you want and I will make them to match most coats! No more problems working the smart phone or digging in your purse . . . these gloves are a must have! Order yours today! Youth size is $20 and adults are $25.
And last, but not least everyone’s favorite . . . the leg warmers. These are super cute and add a little pizzaz to any outfit! They fit infant to about age 8, once your little girl out grows them they make great boot cuffs! Regular leg warmers are $8 and holiday ones are $10.

School is in session! This year I have two 4th graders . . .
And a two-day a week Preschooler!This frees up two afternoons a week for me to work uninterrupted, so I am working on getting stocked up for the upcoming holiday shows. Today I finished my first addition!
This pair of Dylan Fingerless Gloves are perfect for fall!! Think I might whip my daughter up a pair for her big night of cheering on the TCU Titans this Friday! This pair is for sale, but I can make them in custom colors (I’ve already had a request for New Prague Trojan colors) and come in youth and adult sizes. They are $25 (plus shipping), they haven’t made it into the shop yet, so just send me a message!
Hoodies, jeans, and boots . . . fall is definitely in the air, and I am ready for pumpkin muffins and pumpkin spice creamer in my coffee! Some of the upcoming projects that I hope to start are some scarves, cowls, winter hats, and of course more fingerless gloves while enjoying my coffee and sitting under a blanket watching football!
What is your favorite thing about Fall?
Our county fair is next week already and then school starts in 4 weeks from today! I LOVE fall! Football . . . apple orchards . . . school starts (I will have 2 4th graders and a 2 day/week preschooler) . . . falling leaves . . . cool temps! I just love it all!! I am hoping to get more creating done and more time to update and post here once school starts, but here is a peek of what I’ve been working on lately.
These hats were an order for a very special momma . . . she is having twin boys soon! Good luck to you Jen!
This summer Ball came out with a wonderful new product . . . Pint & 1/2 jars! These are the perfect size for that morning protein shake and will fit a Peach Moon drink perfectly! Once I saw them I knew they needed cozies for summer fun! I made myself one for Smokeout and ended up getting a couple orders for them! I am hoping to get some more Vikings ones done before the season starts!
This isn’t anything new, but something I will be restocking this year . . . Minion Hats!! With the release of Despicable Me 2 I figured I better get some done for shows starting in November!!! If you want to beat the rush send me an email at email@example.com!
There it is!! I have a couple more orders to fill and baby blankets that will be added soon! As always if you are looking for something specific send me a message or email!
I have been busy getting ready for spring show and making changes to the site. One of the most exciting changes is that now there is a shop filled with ready to ship items (you checkout with PayPal).
Check out the new blankets I have posted there!
And there are also some Legwarmers, which are perfect for the weather here in Minnesota since we just got 10″ of snow on April 18th!
Keep checking back to see other goodies added to the shop!
We have a little spring fever happening here in Minnesota. Everyday I’m asked if it is spring yet, but there is no grass to be seen yet. This week they are forecasting upper 30s and even 40s!!! So, to get us ready I did a little pattern testing for FooFoo Threads. Check out this adorable Cindy Lou Dress!
I love all the ruffles on this dress. It makes it perfect for twirling in the warm, green grass!Check out the back with sweet ruffles on the straps that turn into an adorable bow in the back! This is a knot style dress, so the straps are completely adjustable.
Dreaming of Spring . . . soon she can be doing this under one of the big trees in the yard, but until then on a white sheet in the dining room will have to do! Here’s to Spring being right around the corner!
Just finished a hat that I’ve been working on FOREVER! I don’t know why it took so long, but because the first game of the Vikings Football season is on Sunday I thought I better get it done!
Check out this awesomeness . . .
It come in newborn to Adult sizes! Prices start at $20. Order yours today! (Pattern is from www.mamachee.etsy.com)
And while you are thinking about fall, apples, pumpkin pie, soup, jeans and hoodies you might as well admit that soon it will be winter and you will need a nice warm blanket to cuddle up under while you read your book or watch the new season of all your favorite show (Yeah Grey’s!) you might as well order up one of these while you are at it . . .
A nice cozy adult size blanket made with the same soft, fuzzy fabric that the baby blankets are made of. Order it today so you will have it before it gets too cold!
I am also starting to work on some fun stuff for a couple shows that I have coming up for the holiday season, let me know if there is anything you are looking for or if you want to place an order early for the holiday season! Just zip me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also keep up to date with all my new creations follow me on Facebook!

I have been busy pattern testing some adorable dresses by amazingly talented designers, so working on my own projects have been put on the back burner, but the kids got their postcard that says who their teachers are when school starts NEXT MONTH! Time to get working and get some cute fall items up and ready to sell!
But first here are some pictures of the cute dresses I made. These are available for custom orders, so let me know if you see something you like!
This is the Donna Dress by Petite Kids Boutique. Love the back on this dress. Jo got to pick out her own fabric for this dress and did a great job!
This is my favorite dress of the summer! It is the Ellie Tiered Twirler by Little Lizard King. This one is made of scraps I had lying around, I also made one for my niece and they both turned out amazing! Such a fun dress!
This is also a Little Lizard King pattern. It is the Bubble Dress! Sorry for the bad picture, but we were getting ready to go on vacation, so it was a rushed photo shoot! Love this fabric, great dress for fall! I think she needs a little green polka dot bag to go with it!
That is what I’ve been up to!
Football season is right around the corner, Vikings just had their first preseason game on Friday, so right now I am about 1/2 way done with a must have Vikings hat! Then I was to get some TCU Titian’s stuff made up for the upcoming school year! We also have the Le Sueur County Fair this week. Hopefully I will be on top of things and get some pictures posted on that!
Have a great day!
There is no better time sucker then Pinterest! LOVE it . . . especially the funny ones. Some of my favorites include:
I have so many projects and recipes pinned. Every once in a while I actually remember to do a project or make a recipe from my wonderful boards! And then I think the inventors of Pinterest really do need to create the “DID THIS” button. . .
To get to the point of this post . . . last summer we got a new puppy named Pepper. Little did we know Pepper was a jumper and she could get into my garden, so I came across this and pinned it right away!
And new that is what I wanted! So after Pepper took my potato markers out we got to work! And turned this . . .
Into this . . .
in just a weekend! I love how it turned out and now there is no way the rabbits are going to get in! Next year I plan to add some solar lights on to the posts and weed paper with mulch on top in the back where the raised beds are and finally finish the whole look with bricks around the whole garden!
What projects have you pinned and complete?
