Howdy, all you there in Internet-Land! This week has been a busy one for me. I was happy to just have a 40 hour work week. Then, Friday, my daughter and I enjoyed some time out at my parents’ house. Friday afternoon & evening were spent working on five more of my doll cases/trunks. I was able to get the shells of all five completely covered. I am trying out a new type of double-layer cardboard. It will definitely make the cases more sturdy, but it’s also more of a challenge to get the covering to look nice on the edges & corners. The next step is to add the grommets for the hinges, then cut, fold, glue, & cover the shelves & drawers. Still quite a bit of work, but making good progress.
I also wanted to share another pattern today. This one is fitted to a 1/3 scale BJD SD size doll. It’s a Mod Style Outfit with bell-bottom pants, a halter top, and a long sweater. Quite a while back, I found some crocheted fabric, and I just KNEW it needed to be a long sweater. It inspired the whole outfit! Now the pattern is available for you. Just pop over to the “Ready To Print Page” for the free pdf download. The pages are formatted to 8.5″x11″ paper. Enjoy & happy sewing!
