Howdy, howdy, Internet~Land. Today I have a new set ready for your taller gals. This one was drafted to compliment the other two beaded projects I have to go with my trio in blue, black, and normal resins. I know the gown is going to take the most time, so if I get a little bogged down with the beading on it, I can also work on the two other looks. I’ll post the picture and PDF link below the video where we draw it out. Enjoy & happy sewing!
Hello, hello, Internet~Land. I’ve pulled an old project off the shelf to give it some new life. Let’s spend some time chatting while we take a look!
Howdy, howdy, Internet~Land. It’s been a bit since my last post, but I’ve not been idle. I now have BJD Registries available in THREE different sizes! The half-sheet size has been revised to include a pocket on the back of each page to keep important COAs, photos, and memorabilia. The two additional sizes are for use with the medium and large size disc-bound planner sets, but you could forgo the planner and use these files as stand-alone BJD Registries. The discs can be purchased separately to match the size you need. I’m also posting my new pattern for BJD clothing hangers. I had this idea when I was preparing for the last Doll Show and needed a bunch of new hangers very quickly. This pattern is super easy to make, not to mention really inexpensive! I will post the PDF links after the video, and I hope these projects provide some economical fall and winter fun for those cozy indoor days!
Hello, hello, Internet~Land! I know ~ two posts in one day ~ wow! I saw an idea on facebook the other day that I thought was great! I can’t take credit for the idea, but I thought I could make it easy for you to have one ~ it’s a personal BJD Registry. Here’s the PDF file. The first two sheets are to be printed front-to-back to create the cover and inside flaps, then print as many copies of sheets 3 & 4 (front-to-back) as you need to organize your BJD collection! Once you have all the sheets printed, simply fold the paper in half and staple along the fold to create your book. I really liked the idea of having a way to keep all my BJD data in one place for easy remembrance and comparison. Hope it’s helpful!
With the arrival of my BJD Gravity Peach and Chocolate soon on the way, I wanted to have a variety of clothing options available. This new multi-piece set is pretty basic, but gives lots of opportunity for creating several looks. The set includes pleated pants and shorts, a t-shirt, an over-sized sweater with two collar options, a jacket, socks, tall boots, slippers, and wing-tip shoes. I hope it helps in putting together a fantastic wardrobe! Enjoy!
Good evening, Internet~Land! Today I have a simple pattern set ready. I needed to draft something for my BJD Gravity 39cm fella, and thought some of you might like the pattern as well. This hoodie would be sewn using the same method as the SD Hoodie I just put together in my latest video (linked below). The pants are also pretty simple, with just a casing waist for either elastic or a draw-string. I included a piece to sew some stockings, so he wouldn’t have to go barefoot. If you’d like a pull-over style hoodie instead, you can cut the front as one piece by placing it on a fold along the center front line, and then cut the front pocket in a similar fashion. Just keep in mind the circumference of the neck opening ~ if it’s not big enough to clear over your doll’s head, you may need to remove the head in order to get the hoodie on the doll. In any event, now our 39cm fellas will have something comfy to wear. Happy sewing!
Good evening, Internet~Land, (at least it’s evening when I’m posting this). Last week I made a box opening video of my first arrival by BJD Gravity ~ it’s her 39cm Peach. He’s absolutely lovely! I’ll link the video below the pattern images in case you’d like to see him. He’s a new size for me, so I needed to draft a Basic Set in order to start designing his outfits. Not sure what my first fashion will actually be yet, but at least now I’m ready to start. Here’s the new set in case you also have one of these fantastic dolls (or one in a similar size). Wishing you all a wonderful week!
Hello, hello, Dear Internet~Land. These days, I’m just not sure about a lot of “stuff.” With the current “conditions” in the world, we have lost two dear ones and have several more in intensive care. Despite this, work continues with constant overtime. Meanwhile, I have more projects that need my attention than I have time. Soooo ~ I’m trying to prioritize correctly and remain thankful for my blessings. We have Heavenly Father that loves and looks after us, family and friends with lots of love and support for each other, a great job with wonderful benefits so that my bills are paid, and all of you who follow and support our little retreat here on the world-wide-web. From this perspective, I can lift my chin and stay positive. Thank you so much for taking time out of your schedule to come by the Blog here or to watch my videos on YouTube. You are such an encouragement, and I appreciate you so much!
With all that said, one of my projects has involved setting up some new technology. My old laptop is ready to go the way of the dodo. It has come to the point where the battery will no longer operate the machine, and using it while continually plugged in generates quite a bit of heat ~ probably not a good sign. I was able to get a new one, but have now been going through the challenge of selecting what software I want to use. Previously, I was using an older 2007 version, and thought it might be time to update that as well. I tried out a new free desktop layout program for editing my patterns to see if it might me a good alternative to either using my old programs or paying a huge price for the newer ones. I still don’t have a verdict, but in the process of learning, I managed to lose data before making the normal image views that I usually post. As a result, I am leaving the PDF link in an “open” view so you can get a glimpse of the images. Who knows ~ maybe we’ll like this format better anyway. So, as I edit this post and get ready to head off to dreamland, here is a fun and fairly quick Hoodie Pattern for your 1/3 BJDs. Wishing you all strength, wisdom, and love in these turbulent times. Good night & sleep sweet!
Howdy, howdy, Internet~Land! This next video will be sewing the Casual Set designed for the Bobobie Apollo SD fella, and other medium size third scale dolls (slim 58cm to 65cm). I’m actually making it for my new Resinsoul 60cm body which is slightly taller than the Apollo. All in all, I’m very happy with how this turned out, and I even made the vest reversible, so I can also use it with the fancier performance set we made in the previous video. This pattern set PDF has already been linked here on the Blog, so just scroll down through the posts to find and access it as a free download! Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
