Back to Work

Well, here it is, a week after the show. Now it’s time to get back to sewing. Up first will be a new supply of clothing for the Tonner Matt style fellas. I need to make more pants! I will be starting with some khakis & off whites, as those have been requested. Then will move on to more of these “tweedy-plaids,” because I have plenty of this fabric. I have also not forgotten the tutorial I am planning for the earlier posted “How To Make a Tonner Matt Shirt Pattern.” Another item coming up will be more of the “leather look” long & short coats, but will work on them as I have time.

I have recently had to make a major career change. I am really liking my new job & all the cool people with whom I work, but it makes for some long work days ~ so my sewing will be saved mostly for weekends. I also have some new paper doll ideas, so be sure to watch for those! All in all, the Lord is very good and continues to bless in so many ways. Wishing you all the best with many thanx for continuing to visit my site!



Thanx for Visiting!

I had a great time at the Crossroads Teddy Bear & Doll Show yesterday! It was so fun to see all  of my collector & vendor friends again. Thank you to all of you who visited my table & have now visited my website. I appreciate you spending some time here. As many of you know, I gave away a free printed special edition paper doll at the show. Here on my site there are two more outfits as well as another gal with the same body shape. My facebook page also has two more outfits for you to save & print as you like. I will also be posting more outfits on these sites shortly, so be sure to come back & check!

I also took some pics of my table, so for those who could not come to the Clackamas show, but want to visit another show, you will know what to look for to find me. 🙂 Thank you again for coming & be on the lookout for more paper doll fun!


Getting Ready for the Shows!

Well, this weekend I have been preparing for the up-coming fall doll shows. To add some pizazz, I have been working to make all my show presentation match my logo. Was so excited with the beautiful fabric find, and now the table covering & skirting is ready to go! It will be so much fun to have everything coordinate!102_1157

A Brand New Item!

So, in my last post, I mentioned a new kind of doll case. I’m happy to announce that it is now finished! UN-fortunately, I ran out of the cool zebra print, and no one had it in stock any more. Fortunately, I found another really pretty print that I think I ended up liking even better! This case is 26″ (66cm) long and 7″ wide, so will hold dolls of 25″ easily. It carries “duffel-bag style” and has a Velcro closure to connect the handles. The top of the case is made of two hinged sections opening to reveal drawer style boxes that are held in place with magnetic flaps. Inside are two sets of ties to hold doll in place. Also included is the pillow lining that lies under & over the doll for protection. Button holes in the pillow allow for the ties to come through & secure doll. I may in future add a few tiny tweaks to the design, but overall am very happy with how it turned out.
