Calling all Preemies

Did you know that November 17th is National Prematurity Awareness Day. 1 in 8 babies is born too soon and often, very sick. I love one of those babies! Well, it is!

We did a few auctions back in April to raise money for the March of Dimes, and I think we may do that again next year.

The March of Dimes is an amazing organization whose goal is to one day have all babies born healthy. Full term. Make the NICU a thing of the past. Go check them out and see how you can help!

Ready for some football?

Wow! All I can say is thank you. We have been extremely busy this fall season. We have been creating custom tutus, appliques, flip flops and bows for our local high school to support the LISD Foundation, which puts money back into the classrooms. However, we are not limited to just doing stuff for the Longview Lobos! Need some inspiration? Take a look at to get an idea of what we can offer you. We are not limited to what is in our shop. If you want something to show your team spirit, let us know. We may not be able to creat the logo but a team name works just as well. The sky is the limit on creating your custom order.

In addition, to celebrate our 100th Etsy sale, we will be offering 15% all custom orders between now and end of the day Wednesday, September 22, 2010. Just mention that you saw it on our blog or our facebook page. Discount does not apply to items that are already on clearance.

We love creating orders for team spirit. Please send us your order before we get super busy. These are such fun things to wear to games and on spirit day to show your team spirit. Pictures will be posted tomorrow.

Wow! Our March of Dimes auctions were a huge success! We raised $131! Thank you so much to those who bid.

Also, we have started offering stacked boutique bows. Here are just a couple of examples, but we can make any combination!

And remember, we aren't just for little girls! We do make shirts for little boys. Well, in fact, we aren't just for children either. We can make adult flip flops and shirts! The cost will be a little higher due to the amount of materials we would need to use.
If you have a design in mind, let us know, and we will work our hardest to create that one of a kind look just for you!

Also, if you would like us to make a shirt or flip flops, and you provide them, the cost will be lower. We can deliver or set up a time to meet with you so that you don't have to pay for shipping. This is valid only in the Longview area.

Benefiting the March of Dimes

One of our partners, Kim, is very passionate about the March of Dimes. Why? Because her daughter was premature, but was blessed not to have to have any of the research from the March of Dimes, but she knows they would have been there if needed. So because they were blessed, they want to help other families who need the March of Dimes.
In an effort to raise money, we at K&E Darlin Designs have decided that for the month of April, 25% of EVERY sale will go towards the March of Dimes. Also, we are going to hold 4 auctions with ALL the money from those going to the March of Dimes.
Two of the auctions will be for girls and two will be for boys. We are currently still trying to figure out what to include in the auctions, but whatever it is will be super cute and custom made for the winners!
So if you've been thinking about purchasing something from us, and even if you haven't but want to, please wait until April(unless it is a time crunch order.) If you don't want to purchase but want to donate, please click on the March of Dimes widget on the right side of the screen under the "About Me" section.
You can purchase items on Etsy at K&E Darlin Designs or message us from our fan page on Facebook.

Custom shirts

Here is a preview of a couple of our super cute custom shirts!

This is just an example of a custom "name shirt." This one is obviously for Easter, but we can do just the name or any holiday. These shirts are available in a wide variety to sizes and blue, pink, red, or white t-shirts or white or pink onesies. This shirt is priced at $14.50.

Here we have a custom designed cupcake. It is made from 3 different fabrics to create a one of a kind cupcake! This is available in sizes 3-6 month to 4T and is priced at $10.50. You can get a pink or white onesies or pink or red t-shirts.

Initial Applique shirts

Something else we are working on is Initial Applique shirts. This is a simple 4" letter in any choice of colors. Tell us what color shirt you are looking for, a pattern possibility and color scheme and we will create your one of a kind look. These can even be for adults - of course we would use bigger than a 4" letter. We can even do names up to 6 - 7 letters and mix and match fabrics. The initial and name shirts/onesies will range from $9.00 to $15.00 depending on number of fabrics used and the length of name.

Some of our products

I figured I would show off some of our products!

Here we have our new double layer, extra fluffy tutu! It is available in any color combination and any size starting at $18.50.

This is just an example of our new "tie" shirts! The tie can be done in any color and any pattern! The cost is $10.50 for short sleeve and $12 for long.

Here is an example of our mini korkers. Again, these are available in any color combination and any pattern of ribbon. The mini korkers are sold in sets of 2, which is perfect for piggy tails! They are $6.50 a set.

This is our normal size korker bow. Like the mini ones, they can be made in any color and pattern of ribbon! These range from $4.95 to $5.25 depending on how big and how many korkers you want in the bow. We also have matching headbands to go with any bow for just $1 more.

This is our custom designed cupcake applique shirt! We can make almost any applique you can think of! This particular shirt is $12.

Check us out at K&E Darlin Designs to see more of our products and make your purchase!
