Matilda?!  can she waltz?  she's neat, though.  and i think her face is more expressive than the AGs from over here.

craft-related, i especially like the pyjamas.
lol she can Waltz, she can do anything! she is Australian afterall, and we are the lucky country Wink I actually thought her expression was a lil odd looking haha. thank you for the kind comments on the PJ's

I love Matilda's dress & bolero.  Runner-ups: PJs and backpack.  Hand stitched?  Wow!  I've never heard of this line of dolls.  I'm going to check them out.  This one is beautiful.  How is caring for that curly hair?
Thank you thank you Smiley They're a lil small, they were made with a Simplicity pattern for the AMG dolls so I know next time to modify it a lil for the Australian Girl. So far the hair hasn't been an issue at all.

I love your website Emily Rose, I end up browsing around on there quite often!

Australian Girl Dolls found here http://www.australiangirldoll.com.au/  and for the most part the dolls are great but the clothes... well they leave something to be desired Wink

My daughter got an Australian Girl Doll for her bday in Feb (I know, original product name, huh). This is Matilda. My daughter loves her dearly. I made her some clothes, infact, the blue overalls weren't made for her at all.

A dress and Bolero - machine stitched (white singlet was purchased at the same time as the doll)

Pyjamas - hand stiched

Overalls - hand stitched

Back pack - hand stitched

Pattern particulars are on my blog http://shell-n-jessi.blogspot.com/2010/03/meeting-matilda.html and I must give credit to Mai for the inspiration to do some more hand sewing http://mairuru.blogspot.com/index.html

One thing I really like about Matilda is her poseability and the fact she stands on  her own! Unlike and American Girl doll she doesnt have a ghastly stuffed body poking out the top of all her garments Cheesy

i know there is a word for this and i can't think what it is..

buttons down the centre front (only 1-2inches) with ruffles that run down either side.

I need to find a pic of what I mean, huh? i can see it so clearly in my head lol

tights and a bolero Smiley I am guessing the wedding would be indoors cos of the huge chance of rain in an Aussie winter (lol, whatever! is this drought ever going to end???)
27  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Infant tu-tu and head band for photo taking......? on: January 03, 2010 03:29:09 AM
I've seen tutus for baby pics made with a plastic headband (obviously without teeth or teeth removed) but these were serious photographers and not ones wanting them to be worn with age. the baby was positioned and the heandband placed on the tummy/back and fluffed. saved the babe laying on a heap of itchy tuelle as nothing was under the baby.

the small alligator clip with the flower glued/stitched on can then be slipped onto any headband so you can change up the bands and flowers.

i love my rotary cutters! for straight lines, sheer perfection! for curves, I use the smaller cutter and take my time. i am hopeless with scissors and as i am lifting the fabric to move the scissors things shift and i get jagged edges. it's not pretty. my only qualm with the rotary cutter is i need a HUGE mat (or an entire tabletop would be nice) so I don't have to shift it about on the quilting one I have.
