1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Shayla on: April 29, 2010 03:39:10 PM
So I haven't sewn since we moved and yesterday I sat down at my new sewing table and nine hours later had Shayla.





2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / buying or making your own? on: August 29, 2009 04:00:09 PM
So I have a friend I sew with a lot. I almost always buy or find a free pattern online at least for a jumping off place. She almost always draws her own pattern. I really admire her for that, but I have no skill at that. However I'm starting to feel more and more like i'm less artistic or talented becuase I use a pattern. What do you all think? Is using a pattern simply copying some one elses' work? Or can it be an artistic expression as well?
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / The joys of motherhood. on: August 29, 2009 08:30:42 AM
So I spent the better part of the last two days working on a Waldorf doll. The first day I was using a random pattern with no instructions and moleskin fabric. I hated the doll. So I decided to order a kit online, but the only one I could afford was sold out. So yesterday I finally found a tutorial that went to the pattern I had. I bought some cotton knit fabric. I drove all over town looking for wool and ended up buying bamboo. I spent all day on the doll, eventually unstuffing the entire body becuase I hated the bamboo so I am using pollyfill. Yes I know this means it's not a REAL waldorf but my daughter won't know the difference. All I had left to do was the hair. And this morning my daughter found the doll and loved it so much she drew all over the face with a blue pen. SIGH!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Madeline doll pattern. on: April 15, 2009 08:42:49 AM
I am having a little girl in July and my husband and I have settled on the name Madeline Grace partly becuase some of my favorite books as a little girl were the Madeline books. I would love to make my little one a Madeline doll but haven't been able to find a pattern. Any suggestions?
