Handmade Victorian Cuff

So I went to this awesome wedding for the lead singer of the band Eyes Lips Eyes, Tony, who is also my husband's cousin and my good friend. I absolutely adore his new wife Jackie, she chose a victorian theme for their wedding and it was epic!

Check out this picture. Don't they look awesome?

If you really want to be blown away watch this video.

For such a posh event I knew I needed a cool accessory.

When I saw this I loved it. Of course its antique and it's sold and I probably could have afforded it
This one is from Third Floor Antiques.

So I kept looking and I found some really cool fabric victorian cuffs available as well.
Like this one.

Violet fabric cuff from DaWanda.

 And this one that I love.

Grey cuff from Crescendoh

I really wanted something to go with the brown skirt I planned on wearing so I decided to make my own. I decided to do an asymmetrical design kinda like the antique silver one above, with fabric and buttons I had on hand. Here it is.

Robot Onsie

Check out the Robot Onesie I made for my good friend Julie who is having a baby boy soon.

This was my first try at this kind of embroidering.  

The silver thread and the googly eye is my favorite part. 

Baby boy themes are harder for me to think of for some reason. But I love the robot. I think it would be fun to draw a slew of them and offer some templates to embroidery from.
Do you have any ideas for other baby boy onesies you'd like to see templates for? 
Please share.
