This is so wonderful!! The way you made her flip around change moods is brilliant!! Your vintage sheet collection must be amazing. It's the perfect fabric for this project.

Vintage sheets are almost all I have in my stash!

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments. Smiley

I LOVE this!!! So creative! how did you make your circles?

I just traced around a few different sized things like a tin & a cup etc & cut them out.

To the poster above who said she had all sorts of ideas about cutting out animals etc... I HEAR YOU! I fear my house is going to end up covered in starch & fabric!

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments; these decorations have been making me smile every time I walk in the room; hooray for Christmas!

Absolutely wonderful. I assume that you have done this before, have you noticed any lasting affects to the walls after removing the decals, or is the paint perfectly fine after wiping down the walls after removal?

I haven't personally, but a bazillion people in the past have, apparently it's quite an old technique, utilized by renters in particular! I got the fabric/starch idea from a book that recommended it for renters as a way to hang a type of temporary wallpaper (ie fabric). Google tells me there are no issues after removal, & from what I can see, everything is gone after a wipe down. Smiley

Thanks! I am glad she went off to another home, hopefully where she'll be appreciated - I know if she'd stayed here she would have been ruined pretty quickly!

I just saw this in the featured projects & new it was you just by the style of the embroidery! Super cute, as always. You're amazing!

I made this a couple of weeks ago for a charity drive we have here in Australia - she is a topsy turvy doll, sleeping on one end & awake on the other.
Her face is embroidered & her bed is a reclaimed doll's bed from the thrift store that used to be brown & had an awful pink & lace canopy. All of the materials for this doll actually came from my fabric stash, which you can probably tell consists mostly of vintage sheets!
She was much harder to make on a small scale than I thought she'd be, I couldn't find a decent tutorial online so I really just winged it, but I love how she turned out & I hope she makes a little girl smile who could really do with one.

Thanks for looking!

Hi guys! I've had such a positive reaction on m blog about these I thought I'd share here too in case anyone was stuck for Christmas decorating ideas in a small space, a rented space or a kid filled space! Wink

Because our house is teeny tiny & I have a 12 month old who would demolish a real Christmas Tree in a matter of moments, I had to come up with a plan B this year, & this is it.

A removable fabric Christmas Tree! So easy I don't really need to explain it too much - cut a bunch of circles in varying sizes from different fabrics, spray starch on the wall, place on fabric, press, spray starch to cover fabric & smooth out/remove excess liquid with a dry sponge. When you want to take the decal down, simply peel off & wipe the wall with a damp cloth. EASY!

So easy that I promptly put up a fabric wreath too - & you better believe I have more spray starch based Christmas ideas bubbling away... it is indeed time to step away from the spray starch.

Thanks for looking & (an early) Merry Christmas!

This definitly ROCKS! I have been wanting to revamp my cruddy stroller for a long time. So how did you cover the canopy piece though as I have been thinking about how to do this and havent come up with anything really.

I unscrewed two of the canopy bars from the frame & slipped the original cover off, it still had one piece of plastic boning inside, then I got the fabric I wanted to cover it with & pinned it to the canopy & traced along the boning/piping on the wrong side. I cut it out with a bit of a seam allowance so that I could fold the raw edge under when I sewed it back on to the canopy using a slip stitch.

Hope that helps! (It took ages mind you & I have sore fingers from hand sewing, so keep that in mind lol, but it was worth it I think)
