Hello 2013!

Happy New Year to all my Raindrop Shoppe fans! If you're like me, then you're ready to get back into your routine. What a great year 2012 was for The Raindrop Shoppe...and with it came many, many changes...first off, I did not have my wisdom teeth removed in October as planned because we found out that I'm pregnant with Raindrop #3! I'm now 16 weeks along and due in June 2013. We also purchased and moved into a new home (new to us!)...we love it and are still getting used to has an extra bedroom for the new arrival.

Now taking orders for Valentine's Day! Below are a few designs I stitched out last year. Let me know if you would like to place an order at: I will be posting more Valentine's Designs on Facebook shortly.

I've also updated my pricing for 2013 so please check out the tab on the right "Pricing and How to Order"...and let me know if you have any questions.
Hearts on a String: $24 on short-sleeves; $26 on long-sleeves

Love Birds Alpha: $22 on short-sleeves; $24 on long-sleeves

Close-up of the Hearts on a String design: I placed tulle behind each heart to give it a more 3D look. Hearts also have a raw edge and will fray after each wash.

This is a great design that will last all year long!

Let the Sewing Begin!

I now have the sewing bug! I purchased a serger which allows me to make my seams look more professional and to give ruffles a triple-rolled hem like you see in the retail stores! Here are a few things I have been up to...and I have more patterns that I just haven't had time to sew yet!
Pillowcase dresses with a ruffle band are $30 which includes personalization of one applique and/or name/monogram.

What a perfect way to show off my new ruffle shorts than with this fun 3D pinwheel design and matching clips! Pinwheel shirts/onesies are $22 for short sleeves or $24 for long sleeves, matching pinwheel alligator clips/snap barrettes are $5 for one or $9 for an identical pair.
