I got out of the habit of checking out my blog list every day which is a pity. I spent a few hours today visiting here and there. Lots of lovely stitching and eye candy. Just what I need to get my creative muse back in gear.
I haven't been idle though. There has been the odd bit of sewing. Mainly for my granddaughter's Wellie Wisher doll called Willa. It has been one toy that she continues to play with.
I made a few summer dresses.
|Mini dresses :)....finished length about 6 1/2 inches.|
She asked that I make something for Willa for Christmas. So I went to my favourite Etsy pattern store....Pixie Faire Doll Clothes Patterns..... and looked at their selection and found a Galactic Warrior outfit and a Jedi style cape. My GD loves Star Wars.
It was fairly easy to make but to be honest I'm not in love with the cape. The fit is very strange. I also made some boots which after three attempts sort of turned out okay. Now I know what to do I think I'll make another pair that are just a bit better looking. I also made a Light Sabre from doweling that my husband cut for me. He also sanded the ended so it was rounded off...perfect. I painted it with metallic blue paint and made a handle/grip with faux leather that I then painted metallic pewter.
The whole thing was a great success.
Here are some pics...this is not Willa by the way. This is my Wellie Wisher doll Camille that I use as a model when sewing.
Hope you all had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year. I also hope you are having warmer weather than we are....brrrr.
Take care :)
