I am now taking custom orders, rush delivery, and skirt/top price update.

I am working on some spring/summer samples to show you gals..... I'm working on the damask sets now along with the embellished skirts..... I'm planning on making the Valentiney sets this coming weekend and the beginning of next week....So many of you expressed interest that I ordered more fabric! Would you be interested in an Easter casual set?? If several of you are I could order some fabric!

I have thought and thought about prices for sets..... I try to keep things as low as I can, but I do have to make a little $$$$. Sometimes I don't make much at all, and that's ok..... I love doing specials, and I will pop up with those here and there where I can price shirts and pants/skirts for $45. Starting today you can choose from the Just Bella pant in regular or capri length or a super twirly drop waisted skirt along with an embellished tee for $50. I've looked around, and most people charge $60 for these sets...... When I order one batch of fabric like the Damask or Valentiney sets I can do it for less.......

If you need something NOW like within 5 days you can pay $50 extra. I will make it that day or the next and ship it overnight.........

Okie dokie.....I think that's it....... I am so grateful to all of you who have made my little at home hobby a great little business! I have so much fun sewing for your little ones, and I LOVE seeing pictures of your little dolls in their CreationsbyLoulou!!! If you have any suggestions or see a pattern you love just shoot me an email, and I will be happy to get it!

Happy New Year!

Matching Mommy Skirt anyone??

Yes, I am!!!! I have found a great pattern in sizes 4-22..... flattering pull on with elastic waist and drop waistband..... A-dorable. I'm going to be whipping up one of these numbers for myself along with a PRECIOUS flower pin made from 3 yo-yo's. Going to be FABULOUS. Price for "Mommy Skirt"- $40 for size 4-10. Size 12 and up please add $8. The pin will be my little treat for you! As always, let me know if you're interested.... I'll post a picture of mine soon. Got the fabric samples today..... Let me just tell you that Daisy, my mom, and I drooled all over them. I'll post pictures of them tomorrow when we have some light..... I'm sending out invoices for the Damask set..... The bows are here, and Megan is ready to go..... I'll start on them the weekend after Christmas! I gotta make some $$$$ to order Easter fabric!!! ;)


Easter is on April 12 this year.... I know that seems a LONG way off, but it really isn't. I have found a gorgeous fabric family that I will be using to make my Easter Creations.... I am offering 4 dress styles and a skirt. I am making samples after Christmas and plan to have them ready mid-January. To go along with the dress I am making matching Easter Baskets out of the same fabric. Can you say FABULOUS? I'm also giving the option of adding a stuffed bunny and bow to match! If you don't want the basket, bunny, or bow I will sell the dresses alone. A couple of these dresses will have embellished or hand embroidered aprons and will be very time consuming to make, so I am only committing to 10 orders. 4 people have already expressed interest, so that only leaves 6 spots. I plan to have these shipped by mid-March to give you plenty of time to have those Easter pictures taken. Email me if you want me to hold you a spot. I'm not taking money now..... I just want to get an idea of who's interested. Prices will range from $70- $120 for the set. Dresses will start at $45-50.

This, my friends, is called Fabric Heaven....

Oh my! Oh my! Oh my! I just want to wrap myself up in these fabrics..... They are by the wonderful Jennifer Paganelli and are DELICIOUS.... The peasant dresses, twirl skirts, apron skirts, ruffles, pants, and embellishments are all SPEAKING to me. I can't wait to see what comes of all this.... Jennifer is wonderful and has agreed to ship me some more of her stash to auction some items off for Global Orphan Team...... I'm cooking up a fabulous apron skirt for the first auction that will feature an embroidered Guatemalan (or which race you prefer) girl for the apron. It's going to be FABULOUS for a great cause...... When I get the fabric from Jennifer I'll post some pics.... For now, I'm going to put all these beauties in my dryer!

I LOVE this combination!

These fabrics coordinate with a small brown block pattern..... It's on it's way!
I haven't decided what I'm going to pair this with.......
Is this not DIVINE??
I can just see this twirling in a skirt now!

Now, I've got to start sewing again soon! I'm out of $$$$$!!! I spent it ALL on fabric!

Going to do 5 sets of embellished apron skirts and tees.....

Please let me know by tonight or tomorrow morning if you want one of these sets for $38. The set will include a long sleeved turquoise or green embellished tee with the NEW embellished apron skirt pictured above.... The fabric will be the same family as the one shown in fuschia or turquoise..... I can do the skirt up to size 7, but the t-shirts only go up to size 4 in the colors.... I can go up as high as needed in the white. If I don't get 5 orders I won't be able to do this set right now.....

Just because I love you people so stinkin' much...

I'm going to keep the price for the skirt and embellished tee at $40! We can keep rocking at this price as long as I can get t-shirts for a decent price.... If anybody sees short sleeves at your Target let me know! I'll send you $$ to get them and ship them to me!!!

I have an extra embellished tee in size 2T

For all of you with the sashed tee sets, this would be precious with your pants..... $15 plus $3 shipping.....First come first served....

A Merry Christmas Deal for you!

This was sold in less than 10 minutes! You people rock!! I'm going to be doing these surprise deals every so often.... I'll start a waiting list in the comment section. Leave a comment if you want to be contacted when I do the next deal.... I know not everyone is on their computers all day long ;) It'll give everyone a chance.... Also, sign up for the mailing list....That email goes out first..... Be checking back soon.... I've got some yummy fabric coming for my girls some dresses. I will have enough to make 1 or 2 extra. The dresses will be around $35-$40. Thanks so much for all your support. I love you guys, and I LOVE sewing for your kids!
This set is available in sizes 6 months- 7 years.
OK folks, I have enough of this YUMMY fabric left to make one (MAYBE 2) skirt sets..... Since it's so close to Christmas I will make the skirt and tee for $38. Even better??? I'll make it tonight and ship it tomorrow US Priority Mail! That means you'll have it by the weekend or earlier!!! This fabric is suitable for year round wear..... It can be paired with a pair of leggings and a turtleneck for those cold days and as it is ALL YEAR LONG. If you purchased the sash tee and pant set, this will coordinate perfectly.... You would have 4 different outfit combinations! I have shirred the hem of the tee shirt to accentuate the drop waist of the skirt. Let me know if you would rather it not be shirred...Shirring doesn't affect the size of the tee. The fabric stretches back to it's original size. The color of the tee shirt will depend of what colors and sizes are available at my local Tarjay...... The first person to email me will be the lucky recipient of this set..... I'll notify the 2nd person, and if I have enough fabric I'll make them one too. This set can be machine washed and dried, although I suggest drying for a few minutes then hanging to dry.

Embellished top and skirt
Drop waist skirt
FULL gathered skirt with hem
Close up of embellishment.... No 2 are exactly alike!
Eye candy, I say!

I can't wait to show you what I have planned.... It's fun and FABULOUS! I've also got some yummy fabric coming for some peasant dresses (short or long sleeved).
