New Pattern Release - Sparkle Starlet Dolls!!

Hello there lovelies!  I'm just so happy to finally have this pattern ready to share with you all!!  It has been a huge undertaking, but oh-so worth it now that it's done!  I've spent countless hours, weeks even, when all was said and done, photographing the steps for the pattern, writing up the instructions and finally taking what seemed like hundreds of photos for the listing pics as the weather was so not co-operating with me!  It feels like an enormous weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I think I  may just have to take tomorrow off!
 These sweet girls are machine sewn and measure about 17 inches tall.  I've included a couple of templates for the doll's facial features.  These will allow you to create different eye shapes and will also give you the option to make dimples, freckles or stars.  You can then choose whether to embroider or paint the features onto your doll, or you may want to try a combination of the two.  
The Starlet's hair is secured onto her head with stitching and glue and it can be gently styled many ways.Please click on all the photos to see the details.
 The pattern includes instructions and pattern pieces to make an adorable pair of sequined/embroidered undies, slouchy leg warmers and a pretty summer dress lined with a tulle petticoat. 
 Rainbow freckles :)
 Such a sweet face!
 What little girl (or big one) wouldn't love to play with one of these?
 They're fun and easy to make!
 I think this one's my fave! :)
 But I just love this one too!
 Painted facial features below.
The Sparkle Starling Doll pattern will be available in my Etsy shop later on tonight!
Happy sewing everyone!!

Li'l Luvs Baby Animals

Hi everyone!  I'm sorry it's been so long since I lasted posted anything, but I've been working on a new collection of baby animal patterns and I'm so happy to say that the first two are finally ready!  I've named these wee animal babies 'Li'l Luvs' as they're just so adorably cute and tiny, measuring at just over 7 inches tall.
I began this project a few months ago with the intention of making six different animal dolls, each with the same body proportions so that their outfits could be mixed and matched between them.  Well, it's been quite and undertaking to say the least!  I can't tell you how many different sizes and shapes these little characters have been through in the design process, but I think I'm finally happy with the end result and I'm ready to share the first two patterns with you all!  Please meet the Li'l Luvs Ellie and Badger!  And yes! they can stand on their own!!
Each pattern will include instructions and pattern pieces to make the doll (either Badger or Ellie), along with a little felt sundress, a cute pair of scalloped felt undies, shoes and a fabric outfit - a sweet little romper for the elephant and a darling little dress for the badger!

I would recommend some hand and machine sewing experience to complete these patterns, though I have provided many detailed photos and easy to follow instructions throughout, so a novice sewer should be able to work through them if they take their time.

Here's a few more pics of the little cuties.

I just love how adorable they look in their little undies and shoes!

The patterns for the Li'l Luvs are now available in my Etsy shop!

Have a wonderful week!
