Loving To Sew

Howdy, howdy, Internet~Land. Last week, I had a really great time at the Wagon Wheel Dollers’ Show at the Polk County Fairgrounds. (Ya, it’s “Dollers’ ” not “Dollars’.”) It was fun to see some of you at the show along with other friends, both vendors & collectors. This week, even after putting in a 50 hour work week, I was able to finish a video and post a new pattern for you. I love productive weekends! The video finishes out the pattern set for the Bobobie Apollo SD BJD body, and the new pattern is a loose fitting dress shirt for the 70cm male Resinsoul body. The pattern photo & PDF link will be posted below the video link. Enjoy & Happy Spring!

Time To Sew a Silver Jacket for BJD

Hello, Internet~Land! I was able to finish the video for sewing the new Bobobie Apollo Jacket Pattern. I also included a link to sew the pants for him. All the patterns mentioned in the video are linked in the previous two posts as well as on my “Ready To Print” page. Enjoy & Happy Sewing!!!

Some New Matt Patterns

Hi, everybody in Internet~Land! I hope you are all well on this fine evening. We have enjoyed a beautiful, sunny day. It’s nice to be coming out of the early darkness of winter into the longer days of spring. I think we are headed for some nice, warm weather this coming week. It’s amazing how a little more sunshine can lift the spirits. Gotta love that opportunity to soak in some Vitamin D!

Today I have a new pattern set for you. I was asked about patterns for the Tonner Matt body style. I am pleased to post this set with pants and a long dress coat. I already have a button-up shirt available on the “Ready To Print” page. I have been told that the Matt sized clothing will work for various 1/4 MSD sized BJDs as well. Hopefully, this will be useful for some fun designs.

A Quick Note

Hi, Guys in Internet~Land! I just wanted to share a quick post that I finished my newest video on drafting a pattern set for the Bobobie Apollo 1/3 scale BJD. It’s a three piece set that includes pants, a button-up shirt, and a jacket. It’s a long video, because I wanted to show the process in “real time.” Hopefully it will give a true representation of what you can expect if you decide to design your own set. The PDF for the Basic set is on the Ready To Print page, but I’ll also post the PDF for the Apollo 3pc Set here for easy access. Enjoy!

2 NEW Basic Sets!

Hi, all you in Internet~Land! Wow. I’ve had a long couple weeks! I know it’s nothing compared to many of you out there, but for this old gal ~ I’m not a big fan of the 50 hour work week (combined with 9-10 hours of drive time). I got reeeeeally spoiled working a 36-40 hour week (a couple blocks away) for 12 years! Now, I’m definitely having to adjust. With extra overtime, I get less time for my dolly adventures. Don’t worry ~ it’s not all “gloom & doom.” One of the reasons for my extra hours is that I’ve been working on a new display for our department. I can’t recall if I’ve ever mentioned where I work. It’s at A-dec. We make dental furniture & equipment. I work in the Upholstery Department sewing upholstery for dental chairs. I was able to get permission to show a photo of my display. I’m so happy with how it turned out! It gives an overview of the different styles of chair inner upholstery (stuffing) & stitching patterns that are available, and the video screen is on a loop showing how different pieces of equipment are used in the assembly process. We have lots of tour groups come through the campus, so we wanted to upgrade our display area. Of course, I had lots of help from the Machine & Property Departments, but I did do all the sewing on the samples in the boxes, as well as the main design & graphics of the board. Here’s how it looks!

This week, the sun is lasting longer, and my spirits & energy are up! I mentioned in my last post that I have recently acquired a Mirodoll male body. I thought he was going to be 60cm, but he turned out to be only 54-55cm. Since he was much smaller than my Mirodoll Rain, the BASIC Pattern Set I last posted will not fit him. Sooo ~ I have been busy drafting a new BASIC Pattern Set for Rain (who is actually 68cm), as well as another BASIC Set for my newly arrived Bobobie Apollo! I bought the Apollo to fit a head I recently purchased. The Mirodoll body was too hefty for the head I bought, so I am using that body for a Ban head I already had. Now that these two new BASIC Sets are done, I will be using them to make more clothing patterns. Be sure to keep an eye out for those videos! In the mean time, here are the new BASIC sets. Enjoy & happy creating!
