Doll #3

The two previous dolls I shared and sold have names now! Crystal and Addison. The girls who received the dolls looked so happy and that was a great feeling being the creator!

I’ll be honest when I was younger, dolls never were my thing. I had these eerie feelings they would come alive and you know, run around with a knife in their hands. Haha. 😀 One year my oldest sister bought me a porcelain doll that played music, it was beautiful and I named her Juliet but deep down inside it freaked me out. I think I still have it and it might…be in the closet packed away? 😉 I’ll look one of these days to see if it is there. Anyway what I was saying was that I never thought I’d be sewing dolls since they freaked me out so much as a child. There is definitely a rewarding feeling I get when I make my dolls and I have come to appreciate the work and craftsmanship that is behind each handmade doll. Roughly estimating, one doll takes me about 12 hours to make if I do it non stop and skip meals completely! Whew, that’s a lot of time!

I started working on another doll shortly after Crystal and Addison. She is the same as the other two just with a few small difference in her clothing. I will be listing her at Etsy soon. Here she is. I wonder what her future owner will name her? For now she will be Caydi. 😉

Doll #1 and #2

It’s 5am in the morning and I’m ready to share my two dolls from the pattern I made. They are close to 15 inches tall, both have a removable hat and cute little pom poms for waist decoration! I’m so proud of them and absolutely love them both. These two dolls have been reserved for sell however I do plan to make more in the future. Have a wonderful day.

Mystery Giveaway Revealed

Mystery Giveaway-annouced-wp

Thank you everyone for participating in the Mystery Giveaway on Facebook and congrats to Ko Lo Her for winning the drawing. So what is this mystery prize???

I’m happy to share with you the new pillow to my Hmongy collection. This makes pillow number 5 for the girls and number 6 overall. The boy version definitely is outnumbered and needs to pick up the pace!

Last year when I started on my little Hmongy collection, I knew I wanted to make this pillow however I held it off for so long because it was difficult for me. After talking to my sister-in-law and having her request this pillow a few months ago I knew it was time to pick up on my slack. ^_^ So thanks sis! I will be adding this pillow to my Etsy shop, so check it out!

Thank you again everyone and here it is!

Have a wonderful day!
