Christmas Gifts 2021 #2

Hello, All! Well, it’s been an interesting 3 or 4 weeks. We had the ultimate joyful experience traveling to LA for the BTS concert. After we got home, it was time to go to work again, and on Tuesday I received my wonderful package from BJD Gravity in South Korea! (The unboxing video link will be added below.) Then on Thursday, the 9th, I was headed out the door for work, and my foot hit unexpected ice at the top of my porch steps. I managed to fall down all seven steps to land in a crumpled heap at the bottom! I knew my daughter was still awake, so was able to text her for help to get up the stairs and back into the house. I missed a day of work last week and have had a VERY sore time of it since I went back this past Monday. Then we had a rough time saying good-bye to a loved kitty who has been with us for 11 years. Needless to say, it’s been a whirlwind of events and emotions, all while preparing for the Holiday. Have no fear, however, we are well and will persevere!

This next surprise is a new Christmas outfit for the Ella Flex Articulated “BJD” Paper Doll. I’ve updated the PDF link so this single file contains the doll and all her outfits. I hope you enjoy, and I’ll be back with another Christmas surprise very soon!

Christmas Gifts 2021 #1

Greetings, my dear Internet~Land and Happy December 2021! You’ve probably noticed the slight difference in the title of this first December post compared to previous years. We’ve had so much going this year with extra overtime at work that I didn’t want to promise false expectations. We might have a few less posts this year, but I still have lots of fun planned. This first gift is a little late, but I took advantage of some “wait time” at LAX to get this first new pattern set ready for you. Why were we at LAX you ask? Well, we had a mini family trip to see … (drumroll, please) … B…T…S!!!!! It was an AMAZING show! Here are a couple pics from our night. Below them, I’ll post the PDF file and a picture of the pattern collection. This set includes pieces for a long tailored/tailed coat, a shirt, bandless pleated pants, stockings, and embroidered/beaded boots. I was inspired after the concert and wanted to design a new outfit for my BJD Gravity 39cm fellas, Peach and Chocolate (who has been shipped & will soon arrive). I hope you enjoy this month’s Christmas surprises and have a very happy Holiday Season!

Supplemental Basics for Miro 70cm Girl

Greetings, Internet~Land! I hope you’ve had a lovely Thanksgiving. Ours was quiet and pleasant and included my mom, my two daughters, and myself. We had a delicious meal, then spent time playing games and watching videos. All in all, a very relaxing day. To finish off the holiday, I wanted to pop in with a new small pattern and video. I’ve had some questions about drafting patterns for basic sets and a bustier, so thought I would combine the two. The doll used in this example is the MiroDoll 70cm Iris, but you can use the technique for any doll you have. I hope it’s helpful!

New Peacock Pattern Set for MiroDoll 70cm Iris

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!

BJD Registries in More Sizes and New Hanger Pattern!

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!

Keep Track of Your Crew!

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!
