Kookaloo, what an ambitious project! Just making jeans would be enough of a challenge for most of us, but adding all the embellishments sounds super challenging. Can't wait to see your finished jeans!

Dulcet, those skirts are a wonderful idea! I agree with Kookaloo; they should sell really well. May have to borrow your idea and make some for all the beta-testers in our family. At least skirts would use up my stash scraps faster than the doll clothes I've been making them for Christmas!

Love those dolls, especially the blonde! Did you draft all the patterns or are they commercial patterns? You have such a great range of sizes.

Thank you!  All the dresses are pretty much the same pattern, just sized up or down.  It's two parts Blythe dress pattern that used to be available for free online (the site seems to be kaput these days) and one part my mom's go-to doll dress technique from when I was little.  I haven't quite figured out how to attach the sashes without stitches showing or fabric glue showing through the ribbon.

If you were adding sashes to a dress for a human, typically you would create crocheted thread loops in the vertical side seams, then run the ribbon through the loops. For something as small as a doll's dress, you might try just a few loose straight stitches to create a loop in the side seam (as if you were sewing on a button).

Deliberately making scraps? Hadn't really thought about it in those terms, but I can see that other people might see it that way. From my view point, once I cut out the quilt (which I've had planned for several years) there will definitely be scraps. The issue is whether I cut the quilt out now when I have a use for those scraps or later when I don't have a use for them. Makes more sense to me to do it now. Besides, I like cutting out things!

I've been putting off a personal quilt top project for quite some time, but looks like I need to at least cut out the quilt pieces so I know what remnants I'll have. The batik fabrics will be perfect for one of the projects I have planned for my partner.

Got side tracked on the way to my fabric stash by another one of my crafting supplies. Already finished the project it inspired (something from LBBB's Pinterest but that wasn't on her list). DD#2, aka Bethimusprime, plans to borrow my sewing machine tomorrow, so I may go play with my paper stash for a few days . . . except she borrowed one of those key tools as well. Oh, no! She and DD#1, aka Zalpinian, have signed up for more swaps! Not sure what tools and supplies I'll have available with both of them actively swapping.  Undecided  Grin

Very nice bag. Looks exceptionally well made and perfect for trips. Love all the pockets.

LBBB and I were partners in a recent swap, but I had more ideas than time to make them in that swap. Maybe now I can get some more of my ideas for her finished. Yeah!!!! Off to my fabric stash I go.

Wow, Kbrison, how many great-great nieces, nephews and children do you have?
You're absolutely right, babies would eat or taste many things.

5 nieces, 2 nephews, 5 great-nieces, 3 great-nephews, 3 great-great nieces, 1 great-great nephew, and 2 great-great nieces due this summer. Nieces and nephews range in age from 17-44 years old. Only 3 are married, so I suspect the number of great nieces and nephews will drastically increase in the next decade as the younger ones marry. Three of the greats are married (ages 21-26) and have children, but that leaves another 5 who are still in elementary or junior high. Then the 6 great-greats are age 4 and under. My daughters are both in their thirties, but thus far no grandchildren. Simple answer: 21 and counting. Then there are all the other close but extended family members. Definitely no lack of little ones to craft for.  Grin

Yoopi, doll shoes are on my to do list and I've made some of the other suggestions as well but am waiting to post until the co-ordinating clothes are finished. Also limited as to what I can give each girl because of their younger siblings. For instance, great-great niece #1 has a not yet 1 year old brother and will have a baby sister early this summer. I can't give her anything that might cause a choking hazard for them. Same is true for great-great niece #3. Her baby sister is also due this summer. On the plus side, I'll be able to use up a lot of yarn and fabric scraps for at least a decade, probably longer, just one of the advantages of having a close extended family.  Cheesy
