Project Name & Page Link: A Doll Case for ABS
Brief Description: AnnoyingBigSister took an interest in Monster High dolls during the carlstoytober19 challenge. She pulled dolls from my secondhand stash, but I didn't have a spare doll case for her to organize her doll accessories in, and it's going to be a tight Christmas, so I tried my hand building a doll case from the cardboard box Fred's cb came in, and wrapping paper.

Project Name & Page Link: A Christmas sweater for a new old doll.
https://youtu.be/n4WxKSw23QY
Brief Description: This is a 1978 Lesney Ginny doll, who has an entire HOST of issues I'll detail later, that I was gifted last week for my birthday. She needs a wardrobe of clothes that aren't from the disco era, and no patterns were put out for the Lesney Ginny dolls, or skinny Ginnys. Tis the season so I tried to make her a sweater from a sock following a Youtube video. It's way tricker than it looked and took me hours of hand sewing. It reminds me of how most of our ancestors hand sewed the clothing they wore and how children learned to sew clothing by hand by sewing clothing for their doll. It even reminded me of how nothing ever went to waste. Clothing could be wonky or badly made and it STILL got worn and patched and worn until it fell completely apart. Rofl

I need to apologize. I glued everything in place for the Instagram photos, and then realized different projects were in photos together and it might be a little confusing, but everything is written out under the class headings. I'm sorry if it's a little blahblahblah.

Thank you Jenleahlynn. Smiley I'm excited how well the walk way turned out.

Imera, I LOVE your teapot!!! Tea time at your house looks like it's awesome!!! And your cheesy cauliflower soup has me so hungry!!!

Mistress Jennie, I love your amazing filet crochet window valance!!!

Erinaquaheart, I love your drawing style. Your drawings always make me smile.

I never got around to saying I apologizing for not managing to send out holiday cards last time I signed up. I completely misjudged how mindblowingly stressful and terrifying being pregnant with AnnoyingBabyBrother was going to be after losing Sparrow, but I put the cards y'all sent in the window in my bedroom. They gave me much needed smiles everytime I saw them. Thank y'all for that so much.

His hair was felted together. He got 3 baths, his head got 2 days acne cream treatment, his joints were resewn, the hole in his leg closed, and after being put back together I spent two whole days untangling and trimming fuzzies out of his hair. He's looking much more daper now and he's ready to play.

I've been trying to make pictures post for hours.  I'm so sorry.  I'm stuck just posting links. 

I want to start trying to build more dollhouse furniture. I started with a little shelf and worked up to a little bookcase.  I'm really enjoying myself.  I wanted to attach little decals to the kids' room furniture, but I couldn't seem to shrink the decals small enough to fit without making them unrecognizable.  It was nerve wracking, trying to get everything just right so it would all fit together, and then 3 days ago my brain reset and NOTHING was painted the right color.  They all had to be repainted.  

I'm so thankful for this craftalong.  It distracts me when everything else in life falls apart.  <3

Well dagnab it.  I'm back to posting links until IMGUR will load the pictures.  It's temperamental, isn't it?
Would you believe all of my attempts to load it loaded all at once the moment I hit the button to abandon it.  Woooo this reminds me to appreciate Craftsters picture hosting all the more.  O.O

Omg Moonflame!!!!  Those are gorgeous!!!

Erinaquaheart, those treats are positively mouth watering, and those scrapbook pages are adorable.

Mistress Jennie, my great grandmother's hobby was crocheting dollies.  That's the only craft she did.  Seeing yours brings back memories.  <3

GO KATIEBREAD!!!!!  Not gonna lie.  I have a Sterlite tub FULL of dolls I want to faceup.  I have all the tools.  I even have the Mr. Clean sealant.  I'm too scared to try.  *knocking knees*  YOU ARE THE BOMB!!!!

Thank you Moonflame.  Smiley  Did you see the doll house portraits?  The one with just William in it uses prizes I think you made.  <3

Guadiknight.  That calendar is adorable, and your tiny dresses are always so gorgeous.  Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy Class
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Adapted strollers
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I picked up a package of tiny strollers at the dollar store.  I used the best one and the most squashed one for this project.  I took the wheels and push bars off then removed the chassis with a drimel and an exacto knife.  I robbed the band from the squashed stroller's hood for the mobile for the bassinet.  The mobile is embroidery thread and circles stamped from a sheet of felt.  I used thick cardboard, several layers of paper towel, and fabric to make a tiny fitted matresses pad. I'm learning to use fabric glue.  I painted the squashed stroller yellow as all of the walls in my dollhouse have some degree of yellow.  I need to learn how to use gesso to prime plastic. Thus I adapted 2 baby shower favor strollers into a bassinet and a laundry basket for my dollhouse.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration Class
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Dollhouse Chart Baby Afghan
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This afghan did not want to be made.  For such a simple pattern I had to frog it countless times.  But I managed, by following the pattern closely, to knit this baby afghan on toothpicks for my dollhouse. I need better lighting in my room.  The embroidery thread I used to knit this is so much prettier than it looks in this picture.  It's a beautiful colorway of pink through blue.  Perfect for a baby blanket.
