I always use salted butter in my baking - here in the UK salted butter is the standard - personally I believe salt adds to the flavour but I guess it is whatever you are used to. I bet your cake tasted great!

I think it looks great for a boy! Well done for losing your sewing machine cherry Wink

What I do with my loose ends -

generally you will end up with one thread on the top and one on the bottom of your fabric wherever you start or stop sewing - sometimes they both end up on the back in which case you can skip the next step.

Gently pull on the thread on the back until it draws through the thread on the front - you may need to use a pin to help grab the little loop that forms as you pull it through

Tie these two together into a double knot right at the fabric surface

Thread the two ends onto a hand sewing needle

Stitch into just the back layer of your fabric right by the knot and do one stitch as long as you can then pull the needle all the way back out and trim the threads at the fabric

I hope this makes sense, it works well and looks neat Smiley

Welcome back Mango Smiley Maybe we could meet at the creative cafe (seems apt!) I am up for a trip to the V+A too, I'm definitely going to see the show, just haven't decided when but a friday evening would suit me fine. Wouldn't it be fun if we could get a little Craftster meet up happening for it? Come on everyone it is supposed to be an amazing show!

This is AMAZING, they are going to be so happy to recieve this and your children will love growing up seeing themselves represented so creatively. I love to applique too and I sincerely take my hat off to you for the skill you show here.

Oh boy.....umm...no, my fabric stash is kind of bigger than that but in my defense I am an independent textile designer so the majority of it is stock rather than stash!

I keep thinking about designing a wardrobe of outfits to sell with the dolls but, well, that would mean more to sell, the dresses I make are reversible though so that's a start!

I think they are gorgeous and I would've bought one if I'd been at your fair and I don't even have children, she would just sit somewhere making me smile Smiley  Not that it is any consolation but I never have any luck at craft fairs either, I'm usually just grateful if I make back the cost of the stand. I am trying a new track next week by focusing on personalised gifts but that is the last fair I have booked and I am in two minds as to whether I will do any more. These dolls are one of the things I sell (or don't sell as the case may be!)

obviously they aren't usually all nekkid, I do make them dresses but I don't have any up to date, non blurry well lit pics, sorry!
