I’ve been a good boy.
Come on, give it to me already.
Here’s the little doll I whipped up for my cousin’s little girl.
I made this after reading half a dozen of doll tutorials. And finally settled for drawing and cutting out my own pattern. I guess it’s sorta original but I admit I borrow heavily from Martha Steward Black Apple Doll (although I didn’t touch the free pattern they provided).
Dolly Charmaine’s face and hair are made of felt & embroidery. The hands, legs and dress/body are made of calico and cotton. Insides… non-allergic polyfill ;-).
I just had to embroider my initial “G” on Dolly’s palm. And on her chest, is the baby girl’s name “Charmaine”.
Been to the doctor and back. Had this numbness in my left arm… panicked so I rushed to the GP… but it was nothing… just too much computer work… Doc did some test and said it should heal in a few days. Pheewww…
But that didn’t stop me from sewing ;-).
Some HEARTS for my customers
(hopefully I will get more customers soon…)
And I have more…
See that fluffy pillow thing at the back of the Hearts?
They are my new Pillow Pincushions!!!
Huge… larger than palm size.
Last but not least… I bought these kitchen towels in Giant yesterday. I have a great idea on what to do with them… but at the moment it’s WIP… when it’s done I’ll make another post ;-).
