Q.  Tell us a bit about yourself and your shop.

A.  My name is Rebecca aka melysbaby. I live in beautiful, sunny Florida and have a charming and funny 7 year-old daughter and two playful kitties. I hand-embroider vintage patterns and designs onto household linens and clothing. I also do local custom orders of whimsical hand-embroidered family trees..

Q.  What or Who inspires you?

Everything vintage! I love all the vintage embroidery and designs found on old linens and clothing. But I am drawn to anything vintage, not just embroidered items, especially from the 1930s through the 1950s. I love the colors used and the styles. Maybe I am just nostalgic for a simpler time.

Q.  When you're not doing things for your shop can we find you around the internet?

A.  I have a photostream on flickr that shows all my work...past and present.

Q.  Just for fun tell us your favorite color.

A.  I love blue..every shade of blue! I think it shows when you look at things I have embroidered! I just love that blue can be calming and soothing or vibrant and uplifting.



  1. I love your work, Rebecca. It's just the perfect amount of stitches and just the right style.
