Type a couple questions in the comments for me or one of my dolls, by next Saturday and I will answer it (of course if you ask “what is your phone number” or “what is your favorite curse word” I won’t respond).

Pin your pattern piece to your fabric, and cut 4. 2013-11-09 19.23.14

Pin up 1/4th of an inch and sew. Be sure you have 2 folded up to make left mittens and 2 to make right. I made that mistake. :^(

Pin the top and bottom with the right sides together, and sew on line as indicated on pattern piece. Trim seams and turn inside out.

Happy sewing,

Sewing Adventures: A Hodgepodge of Things!

Hi! I have an update to my many sewing exploits.

2013-11-02 00.10.34

For my birthday, my sister’s fabulous godparents gave me doll patterns. One of them was the Frozen Hot Chocolate Holiday dress. It was originally made for velveteen fabric, but I did it in cotton and it turned out great! The pattern was surprisingly easy and the Gals all look fabulous in it.2013-11-02 00.10.49

Instead of Velcro, I put snaps down the back. Time consuming, but snag-free! 2013-11-02 02.18.00

Here are a pair of full length leggings from Liberty Jane’s pattern, made of rainbow chevron with special care to match the sides. It’s paired with the Handkerchief Skirt.

Shoelaces

In non-doll news, I made shoelaces using this tutorial and they have gotten endless compliments! I highly recommend them.

Happy November!
