Sewing Pattern and Doll #12 and #13

If you haven’t entered into the Birthday Giveaway on Caydi Doll’s Facebook page, you should! Why? Because you get a free doll! Specifically the doll below in the purple hat. I just got her completed and can’t wait to send her to her new owner. The deadline is February 17th, so there is still plenty of time. ­čÖé


Next on the list… I present to you a somewhat different look to my dolls. Isn’t she lovely? With Valentine’s day rolling around I decided to give her a different skirt and add some hearts to her hair tie. I hope you like her. This skirt fabric is a very common print for Hmong skirts and I couldn’t wait to use it. My Grandma actually gave it to me last year when I went to go visit her and she told me to do something with the fabric because if not, she was going to tear them into stripes to tie her chickens! LOL, WHAT?! Anyway she then explained to me that she is old now and can no longer sew like she use to so after that, I gladly accepted them. Thanks Grandma. ^_^



I’m making a sewing pattern for my Hmong dolls and if anyone is up for the challenge to test it out, please let me know. I’m looking for at least 5 people to do this. It involves many parts and will take lots of hours but if you would like to help me out, I’d appreciate it. Skill requirement probably is intermediate but even if you are a beginner, I’m sure you can complete it if you take your time. It would also involve buying your own material, actually following the pattern and giving me your honest feedback on the pattern. I’d like for it to be completed by early March if not earlier. If you are interested, serious and ready to invest the time to finish it, let me know! However, I cannot offer anything in return but my gratitude for your help and you’ll get access to the final pattern. ┬áThank you!


Caydi Doll Pillow Series – “Sweet Valentine”

Good morning WordPressers! Beautiful morning here, the sun is out and it feels nice and cool. Well…I’ve not gone outside, but it feels that way! Woke up and grabbed a snack and then took some pictures of the new Caydi Pillow, “Sweet Valentine”.

“Sweet Valentine” definitely┬ágot me thinking a lot! It was much more complicated compare to “Cold and Cute” but I guess that’s part of learning and trying to challenge yourself. ­čÖé SV had more piece to work with, constantly┬ácutting, laying out, sewing and repeating the cycle. I changed a few things here and there while making it but the final result was very close to my digital image. This project took me about 12 hours to make and I’m thrilled with the outcome. I wanted something sweet and simple to help celebrate Valentine’s Day and I think this pillow does it! The pillow is┬ávery soft and huggable, I love it!

WordPressers, here it is!
