kiri’s new hoody

  • Posted on December 18, 2012 at 11:07 am

kiri liked the big girls hoodies so much that she begged me to make one for her too. i had to completely redraft the pattern. her proportions are sufficiently different from the older girls that it was easier to start from scratch, and then it took three tries to get the hood to work out in this size. but i think in the end it was worth it ’cause it came out really cute. here she is in the first one that worked. kiri's new hoody
now all the little girls want one! 😆 so i’m off to see what other fabrics i have that would work for my girls, these will be available on etsy soon 🙂

update. they are available now

first etsy sale

  • Posted on November 9, 2012 at 3:02 pm

i made my first sale on etsy this week. you wouldn’t think it would be that big of a deal. i’ve been selling bears and patterns for almost 20 years now. but this is a new direction for me and hopefully a change in what i’m doing. bjd’s allow me to incorporate so many more crafts than anything i’ve ever done before. i can knit, crochet, sew, quilt, bead, needle-felt, woodwork.. well you get the idea. for someone with craft add they are perfect! i can keep changing without switching hobbies all the time 😆 anyway i sold a hat this week and hopefully it’s the first of many

i’ve been working like crazy on a new line for my minifees. we’re going to lake louise later this month and i want to take a bunch of clothes along and do a photo shoot in and around the chateau – depending on the weather of course. ananda got a new face up in preparation. poor girl fell and chipped her’s earlier this fall. and i desperately need to figure out how to fix ember and shaelyn’s bodies so that they will pose properly before then. if anyone has any ideas on how to fix recalcitrant minifee bodies please post suggestions in the comment section!

learning to sew again

  • Posted on November 3, 2011 at 4:52 pm

i just finished taking a course on sewing knits so i could make t-shirts for everyone. unfortunately the class ended up being designed for people who really didn’t know how to sew, so it mostly turned into 2-1/2 hours a week that i could dedicate to sewing with no distractions. probably worth it if that was all i got out of it, but i did learn a few good tricks and was able to extrapolate on some of her other ideas to solve my main problems, so it was a good class.

kiri volunteered to come with me and be a test model. (once she volunteered all the little girls wanted to come, but there just wasn’t enough room.) it was nice to have some one on one time, something sorely lacking around here some days 🙂

most of what i did was trying different ideas, which made for interesting t-shirts with each seam done differently 😆 however i did get one jacket almost finished. i forgot to bring the buttons with me, and the pattern will require some tweaking before i do the next one, but i think it ended up cute anyway and kiri gets to keep this one for her help instead of selling it on etsy.

anyway here is a picture of her in the unfinished jacket
my test model
just ignore the pin and pretend it has buttons

kiri also decided to cut her hair. she said it kept getting in the way when she was taking her shirt on and off. we trimmed it into this short bubble cut and now her straight hair has some wave to it, who knew? i think it looks cute and really suits her

funky crocheted hats

  • Posted on October 16, 2011 at 9:16 pm

i’ve been busy making crocheted hats for the little ones. they might need to wear warm hats as the weather cools, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. we took a short trip to banff to see the fall colors and 4 of the kids came with me to show off some prototypes for a new line of hats i’m making

crystalorn frog princess
crystalorn loved the frog prince hat and said “its a frog princess!”

amber
amberglas pretended to be a swamp creature rising out of the marsh

crystalorn and amberglas
when they quit giggling long enough the girls posed for this shot.

kiri, crystalorn and amberglas
then they climbed up with kiri so i could take a picture of all the girls, i think crystalorn was getting tired, ’cause she was getting really snuggly with her big sister

digory muppet hat
digory like the muppet style hat but didn’t want to be in a photograph with the “girls”. he says quinn needs a hat so the boys can hang out instead.

btw kiri and amber’s lovely new hoodies are from spampy’s stuff
