More… Sewing!


Do you like to sew? I do! Though I don’t do it too often, occasionally I get a burst of motivation and make a bunch of doll clothes. And then, after several sewing projects the sewing machine isn’t used for a while until I get another motivation burst. ๐Ÿ˜‰

But recently, I had one of those, and I made several things for the dolls! You can see my past sewing posts, here, and a second one here.


Onto the sewing…


Here is Grace modeling some Jeans I sewed. as well as a T-shirt I sewed.


The jeans were made with the Liberty Jane Jeans pattern I received from a Freebie Friday on Pixie Faire. And the T-shirt pattern is from the free pattern on Pixie Faire, here.


And here is Consuelo in a skirt I made her. I don’t think I used a pattern for this.




Last but not least, Caroline is modeling this black shirt I sewed.ย This shirt is inspired by this shirt, and this shirt from DreamWorld Collections!


I just used the same Pixie faire T-shirt pattern as for Grace’s shirt, except that I cut it so it would be longer (I used an old shirt, so the lace was already attached!). I think I got the sleeves from Pixie Faire’s pullover sweater pattern, though you could probably easily snag some sleeves from a free pattern online.


I hope you enjoyed!

Do you sew in spurts, regularly, or not much/not at all? Which piece of clothing or outfit was your favorite?


Have a blessed day!

Some Sewing Stuff

Good day, my dear readers! ๐Ÿ˜‰


I’ve sewn a number of things recently, and thought I’dย show you some of them!




First I have this maxi dress that I made. I actually made it out of one of my old dresses. I used the Pixie Faire Maxi Dress pattern that I got free through a Freebie Friday! I added a couple more skirt tiers, though, than the pattern said.


I also made the tank top underneath by altering Pixie Faire’s free T-shirt pattern. (Though they have a free tank top pattern as well)

I’m thinking of doing a tutorial for Julie’s hairstyle. Would you like one?


Next up is this leotard that I made for Clara with this pattern. I made the front with two pieces of fabric, instead of one piece with appliques. I also used fabric, folded over and zig-zag stitched, instead of fold-over elastic, and it seemed to work fine. I like how it turned out!


Hmm, I think another Clara Doing Gymnastics post is coming due, don’t you? ๐Ÿ˜‰


And lastly I want to show you the Teagan Top I made using Project AG Runway’s pattern. You should really check out her blog! She blogs about sewing, mostly, and has already posted a few great (free!) patterns!


Mine seemed to turn out a little small. The straps were too short, so I sewed on some extra fabric, and now they lay a bit funny, but it was my first try at the pattern, and I had tried to alter the pattern slightly, so the mess-ups may well be my fault XD . I also used velcro instead of snaps. But it’s still a super cute top!


I hope you enjoyed!

Which clothing item that I sewed was your favorite? Do you want to see a tutorial for Julie’s hairstyle, and another post with Clara’s gymnastics?



P.S. What do you think of my Gravatar profile picture? It’s the pic of Clara that you see when I comment. I’ve had it a while, but am wondering if it looks odd or good. Honest opinions or ideas are appreciated!

P.P.S. Is anyone doing Camp Nanowrimo in July and need a cabin member? I want to participate in July, and would love to be in a cabin with some fellow bloggers.

Sewing for Saint Patrick’s Day! (+BIBPC)


Recently I’ve been in a sewing phase! I seem to phase in and out of my hobbies, and lately I’ve been sewing up a storm! I made a few things that I want to show you.


First of all, I found these Saint Patrick’s Day bandannas at Target in the dollar aisle. They were each $1! So I thought it’d be cute to pick them up and make something for my dolls!


I ended up making two handkerchief skirts (the sewing tutorial is found here). I did the tutorial a little different, as I used one layer for each skirt, and then I have the option of layering them or not (they are layered in this picture).


I also made a little necktie. I think this outfit is adorable!


The last thing I’m presenting is the white T-shirt I made, shown in the outfit. I really wanted to make a white T-shirt for my dolls. They had a few, but all with designs and things on them, so now I finally have a plain one! I used this free Pixie Faire pattern.

I guess that’s it for today! I’ll probably have more things to show you sometime soon!


Post Break! (Behind the scenes)

While I was photographing the bandannas, our cat showed up… here are some photos I snapped of him!

While you’re here Kitty… I might as well dress you up… XD (He actually didn’t seem to mind too much)



Bonus shot of him at the window ๐Ÿ™‚

And thus concludes today’s “behind the scenes!”

Would you like to see more things that I sew? Do you enjoy sewing for your dolls? Are your dolls prepared to be pinch-proof on Saint Patrick’s Day?


Post for you later!


Here’s my BIBPC entry for Team Owl! (this is late on here, but I already submitted it to Megan)

The category is animal closeups.


Story: Naturally, I chose our cat, Clifford as the subject. Here is a shot I got of him on my bed, napping. ๐Ÿ™‚

And here is the poster I made for the next BIBPC, for extra points:

I made it to look like a poloroid photo ๐Ÿ™‚ .
