New Dolly and Pillow Update

This is a doll I’m working on from a new template I made earlier this week combined with some older doll templates I had. So far I think she looks good and I love her cat-like eyes. She’s a fresh breath of air after working on so many Hmong dolls! Haha. Yes, I admit that my Hmong dolls were burning me out! I have been working so hard on a few and I seriously can’t wait until they are done. They are like a tiny little army right now.  My goal is to get them done before the month ends. Hopefully I’ll also have this new doll design to the final stages soon too and then I can start making more of them for fun.

Last thing to mention, Hmongy Pillows will be available online again by March and have a wonderful Valentine’s day!

Take care!

It’s already February! :O

Anyway, I announced the winners for my last giveaway a week ago on Facebook but wanted to share the two pillow designs the winners received. I hope they like them!

Happy Birthday CaydiDoll Giveaway 2014 Results

The first pillow was used for the Happy Birthday Giveaway and the second pillow was used for a “Side” drawing which I decided to do for a small amount of people on Facebook.

Happy Birthday Caydi Doll

I can’t believe it has been two years since I started Caydi Doll! Happy Birthday Caydi Doll! I am doing a small giveaway for this celebration on the Facebook page so if you are interested in winning a set of Hmong inspired pillows, check it out. Will end this February 1st 2014.

Happy Birthday CaydiDoll Giveaway 2014

As for my plans for 2014, I’m making some changes to My Hmongy Pillows once again. I had a sudden halt with some technical difficulties last year but am now back on track. The changes will be in the size, design and fabric. I’m wrapping up on some of them and will have them available for purchase again at my Etsy shop soon by end of February. Some pillows will also be available for purchase at a local shop in Sacramento, CA by late May. Will have details on that once that happens! This will definitely help save on shipping if you live in Sacramento area or know someone who can get a hold of them. J

As for my little dolls, they are constantly a work in progress. I don’t know why but I’m so meticulous about them. Any little thing can ruin the entire doll for me. I guess that is why I just can’t seem to get them done but it’s alright, just simple obstacles that I can learn from and overcome. 😉

This is really pushing it for me, but I was thinking about making a YouTube channel to show short videos of my pillows. Hmm? Maybe not. I don’t know if I would have any patience for it but I’ll see. I might feel ambitious one day and do it. Haha.

Have a wonderful day! By the way, it is snowing! ^_^

Shirt Like Caydi’s

Call me crazy but after looking at Caydi’s doll shirt for awhile I wanted to make one for me. What in the world huh? 😛

Shirt Like Caydi

It isn’t as puffy and flowy as I’d like it to be but it’s no problem, I like it! I am still not very good at sewing clothing and so I sort of just made a big square and did what I could. ^^ I have been practicing zippers and it’s stressful. x.x  I’m sure I am doing it wrong!

I hope everyone is having a good start to 2013, make it worthwhile because I’m sure it will fly right by! Early last year I was so excited about the year itself because it was the year of the Dragon, my year! Everything just felt so right and I wanted to take off in a different direction. I decided to dedicated my time into my pillows and reflecting back I am very proud of what I accomplished. A big thank you to everyone who supported me! For 2013, I plan on adding more designs to my CaydiDoll pillows and also random sewings that I will share, umhmm like that one above. Lol.

One more thing, last year I did a monthly collection piece of Caydi and I’m unsure if I will continue to do it, but will definitely still be making projects of her.

Have a great year!

New Scarves and Nerdy Caydi

I’ve been missing for awhile I know! I’m sorry. 🙂 I feel working night shift is definitely taking a toll on my body…

>.<

The two scarves I mentioned in my last post are finished and I’d like to share them. They are also listed at my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in purchasing. Here they are!

If some of you remember my “Nerdy Caydi” for my October collection I actually retouch some bits and pieces and made it into a digital print.

I hope you like her! This pillow is also listed at my Etsy shop too.

I will be doing a small giveaway with Nerdy Caydi on my Facebook Page once I hit 100 “likes”, and if you’d like a chance to get this new Nerdy Caydi, keep an eye out on my page to learn further information.

Have a great day!

Caydi Bunny Plush & Mini HC

For some reason our backyard has so many rabbits that they inspired me to create my own bunny design. WordPressers, I present to you Caydi Bunny plush!

I actually worked on these all day yesterday and some today. Took me quite a while…I was up to 3am just making these and I still wasn’t done. Well they are done now and I’m very please to share them! These Caydi Bunnies are approximately 5.5x2x4.5 inches and made from minky fabric with a bit of felt. I hope you like them! Find them at my Etsy shop for purchase.

I also now have mini 8×8 pillows of my Hmong Collection also listed at my Etsy shop.

Good night WordPressers!
