My newest design is a darling little Zippered Coin Purse. It is a great size to tuck in a pocket or small purse and it is perfectly sized for children! It's a fast and easy project that is made completely in the hoop of your embroidery machine - zipper and all! And don't let the zipper scare you - I promise it is easy! The front of the wallet is made with vinyl so you can see what's inside and it's a super way to showcase fun fabrics. There's even a little pocket on the back to tuck in a card. Speaking of cards, this wallet makes a really fun way to give a gift card. Just tuck your gift card into the zippered compartment and it will show through the front. The Zippered Coin Purse design fits in a 4x4 hoop!

Thanks for all of the entries in my Name-the-Next-Hair-Pretties-Design Contest! You are such a talented and creative bunch! It was hard to choose from all of the wonderful suggestions but in the end, I felt "Posh Purse Hair Pretties" was perfect. Thanks to Sharon Z. and Pamela O. for coming up with such a fun name!
Posh Purse Hair Pretties are perfect for your little fashionista. They are so quick and easy to make in-the-hoop, you'll want to make them for every occasion! Use red felt and a green ribbon handle for Christmas, pink felt and a red handle for Valentine's...the possibilities are endless. And they're not just for hair! Here are some other fun ways to use them:

- Party Favor Bag decorations - clip on Posh Purse Hair Pretties for a super presentation!

My little girl turns 4 tomorrow! We had a birthday celebration today with two of her little girlfriends and painted their nails, had gooey chocolate cake and played fairy dress-up! Each little girl received a goody bag with my newest Hair Pretties design attached and they were a hit! The Hair Pretties design is a little purse with a ribbon handle. They're fast and easy and really very sweet!
I hope to release this design over the next few days, I just can't decide on a name for it. "Purse Hair Pretties" just doesn't seem to have a nice ring to it. I have a lot of creative customers so I thought I'd make it fun and let you decide! Send me your suggestions, either by commenting here on my blog, e-mailing me at email@example.com, or by posting in my Yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/picklepiedesigns. I'll decide on a winning name from all the entries and the first person who suggested that name will receive the design free!
***To celebrate my little girl's birthday, I'm offering a 40% off SALE at PicklePieDesigns.com! Plus, spend $25 and get an extra $5 off when you use the coupon code "Happy4th" during checkout.***
Here's my little sweetie blowing out her candles!

I'm really excited to introduce my long-awaited In-the-Hoop iPhone Case! It's actually pretty nifty since it uses clear vinyl for the front of the case and you can use your iPhone or iTouch without removing it from the case! I have to give my smart hubby credit for that awesome idea. I made a prototype this week and carried it around for a couple of days before realizing I really needed a strap for my wrist. I made another last night with a strap and am loving it! It has a zipper so your iPhone won't fall out, a pocket in the back to store head phones, and, in addition to the wrist strap, it has a loop so you can attach a key ring or lobster clasp. The Wristlet Case for iPhones is really fast to make and the zipper is so easy to attach in-the-hoop that you'll be amazed!
The design will be ready this weekend. I'm finishing up the instruction photos and waiting for feedback from my testers then it will be ready to go. The retail price is $12 and it will be offered at an Introductory Price of $8 for a limited time only. If you really can't wait, I'm offering a special pre-order price of $6. Click here to pre-order!
