I love everyones poppets and punkins! So cute and creative! I noticed a lot of people make these for their kids and was wondering how they wash up? I don't know much about alova, mole, etc.
I had to wash one as my dog stole it and slobbered it. I put her in a pillowcase and washed on gentle. I also dried her in the drier. This was after she had eyelashes and painted eyes.
I didn't put anything else in the washer and added a towel to the drier.

It looks very sturdy and well made. Good work!
Much better than those bought ones where baby dangles by the crotch, yikes.
Yes exactly! I can frog leg her in it and shes good to go. Smiley

I had a baby in august and she is great. But like many babies there are days when she just wants to be held. And this mommy has to get things done. We also opted for a convertable car seat instead of the traditional infant bucket seat system. So I need ed a way to take her places when shopping and such.

So I needed a carrier. I'm a thrifty person and could not see spending 40.00 or more on something I could make and may or may not like in the long run.
I had mcalls pattern 5678(i think) and made this:


I use it all the time and it's so nice to have Norrie close and not worry about people touching her when I go out. Smiley

he/she looks awesome! Love the detail you put into it and the fabrics you picked really make the difference in realism. Great job!

I LOVED the umbrella dress myself. Personally I didn't think of an umbrella as "fabric". I thought the pee pads would be more "fabricy" than an umbrella. I also would imagine sewing with mesh and cotton and nylon or whatever pee pads are made from to be much easier than umbrella material but perhaps I am wrong.

I thought it was cute too.  I thought the design had been done before though.  It  was cute this time though.

I was not thrilled with the guy who made the dress from the dog bed, and hamster bedding. The top was exactly what they where told NOT to do and he did it anyway. And it was so bla.
The birdseed dress was amazing though I agreed that just a touch longer would have looked nicer and more modern.


That was Oliver of the accents, and I agree.  I didn't like it at all.  Can you imagine trying to take that dress anywhere?  You would end up with bedding in the wooly part.  Hot mess!
And Thanks JXsMommy for the update on his accent.  I was thinking it was something like that before he said (and they edited probably) his bit about his accent.

Now someone clue me in, what is wrong with a-line skirts or bubble skirts? Is seems these designers are stuck on pencil style skirts and it's making me sad! Hopefully when they have real fabric to work with they will break out of that. I mean I know pencil skirts can make a girl look really good but vary it a bit you know?
Not only are they stuck on pencil skirts but they are soooo short and soooo tight, that they just look trashy to me.  I just wish they would get more designers that understand FITTING in general
EXACTLY! Smiley

I also loved the died pee pad dress. The color was just so pretty and there was no clue as to what it was before when it was done. It looked really nice.

Eliea you crafty lil bug you.......you have me upcycling anything I can get a hold of (Michael doesn't know how to throw things out so I have lots to work with lol)  I just took the baby's old blanket and made a pillow for his toddler bed.

Thanks for the compliment! Hopefully I'll have photo's of the nursery completed to put up soon. Smiley It's almost there!
And horray for more upcycling!
