As you may recall – in years past – I have been yapping about the personalized dresses that I’ve made for all the little girls in my family. This has been a great gift for several years, but now that my girls have become tweens and teens who only sport ATH-leisure, I’m not making as many as I used to. However, I still think it’s a great gift for a little girl and now that I’ve discovered a new source for some super-cute monogram blank dresses, I may be at it again.
If your are interested in making some personalized little dresses for Christmas, there are a lot of ways to go about it. Here are some resources from past blog posts + some new cute dresses that you can easily personalize with your embroidery machine!
MAKE YOUR OWN MONOGRAM BLANK FROM A T-SHIRT AND A SCRAP OF FABRIC
Seriously – you can make this from a $3 t-shirt from Walmart and a scrap of fabric! Check out my tutorial on how to make this cute little dress.
I used my appliqué triple stitch letter design for the single letter.
GET YOUR MONOGRAM BLANKS FROM WALMART
Walmart usually has a few different tunics available for about $7 that are suitable for embroidery. You can see what I’ve done with them in the past, then scope out your local Walmart to see this year’s styles.
JUST AMAZON PRIME THESE MONOGRAM BLANK DRESSES
This weekend my sister-in-law let me in on a secret…. The darling dresses her little girls were wearing which LOOKED like Boden dresses were actually from Amazon and they were a fraction of the price… like $15. SAY WHATTTT????
But you know what would make them a bit cuter? if they were monogrammed or appliquéd!
Enjoy and happy embroidering!
