This was just so much fun to make!! I found a beautiful fabric at a local shop here at the beach. http://www.whatsyourstitchnstuff.com/ Oh, I had too much fun!!
The fabric is full of bra and pantie designs. So I cut them out and embellished them. Then I made a felt base and sewed on the pins. I have 4 more that I want to work on tonight. As soon as my daughter gets to sleep I will be back to work.
My husbands band is playing tonight...so I can have a little time to myself to work. Have a great weekend everyone!
Here is a little doll that would just love to join you while you water your plants! She is about 6" tall made from moss colored felt. She is hand sewn from my own sketch. Her flowers are sewn around her embroidered and beaded face. I put her on my door wreath and she looked adorable! See what you think.
Monkeys just seem to be on my mind lately! I have 2 new plush designs. Here is a finished one I just put in the shop. She has bendable arms and a bendable tail. Boy did she take a while to hand sew...all those curves!
Next I started the guitar favors for my daughters birthday party...just a few days away! I really like how they look. The photo does not do them justice. What do you think?
Well, how can I explain mine? We went about 2 miles away to see the fire works. We took our Lexus and were waiting for it to get dark. It is pretty hot here in Virginia Beach, so we had music and the fan on while we waited. Needless to say when my husband went to start the car up, the battery was dead! Can you hear me screaming???
My husband ran home...he used to be a track star thank goodness!!!!
My seven year old daughter Katie was so scared, poor thing! But at least she got to see a few fireworks.
My husband got his truck and came back to save us. What a night.
Well on a nicer note, here is my finished Jeannie and her bottle. She is hand made from my original drawing. She was just put in my Etsy shop.
I am trying to plan out my next few designs. I am not sure if I want to do a monkey just like the monkey pin, but bigger. And I am getting excited to start the fall and winter softies!!
What a fun day my family had. We made our way to Fort Monroe in Hampton. My husband was head of the Army Band when he was in the Army. So we wanted to show Katie where her Papa worked and lived.
It had changed so much, and now they are going to shut the military functions down. It is so sad to think this historic snapshot of our history will be gone.
I just had to show you a picture of the playground we stopped to play at on base.
Okay, so I know summer is for all this great fun, but I have promised myself that I would work on my dolls every day, and so far I have! Here is a little monkey pin I finished last night. She is in the shop at Etsy!
