I Never

thought I enjoy personalizing a clothing article for someone by free-handing letters and appliquéing them.  I was so wrong!  I absolutely love it.  It was so much fun to see my creation come to life and I even enjoyed the somewhat tedious stitching involved too.

I received this convo not too long ago from a customer:

I was wondering if you put names on the apron. Like for the adult one to put "Baba" and the child's "Xenia" (name of my daughter). 

This request came from a first time buyer on etsy.  I knew it was important to try and make this a great experience for her…I wanted her to know how wonderful it is to buy from the individual that makes an item…not just the factory. 

I had some time so I thought I’d give it a try…here’s what I came up with:036

   I used the same fabric that I cut the Matryoshka dolls out of for the top section of the apron.  042037     Here’s what she wrote me she got them in the mail:

Oh, Kim, they are so beautiful! Thank you so much for your hard work on the most adorable aprons! I will be sure to send you a picture of my Xenia in it! You truly are knew exactly what I wanted! Thanks, Kyra

Receiving notes like that make all this even more worth it.  Not only do I truly enjoy creating but to have others truly appreciate it makes it even more rewarding.  And now because of this new etsy buyer I will be offering personalized aprons in my shop.
