I love your doll. I'm not a doll person (even as a little girl, I wasn't), but yours is so exciting with your use of color, texture and design. Great job.

I received my inchies from Smmarrt and they're really fun. She chose a mix of themes -- the first four are based on my foreign languages theme (she threw me a curve with the Norwegian "jente" for girl, but I figured it out eventually). The others take off on my farm animal and hobby themes:

Thanks so much Smmarrt. I can't wait to add the animals to my mini-book and start another mini-book with the language inchies. I think I'll frame the hobbies (looking for more) because they are so cleverly dimensional.

Very cute, though I must say that your "model" really adds to the ultimate cuteness. I think if you're close to the border with Singapore, you can find very inexpensive fabric there (at least that's my memory).

Definitely a bit creepy, but I actually don't think it is too much so (and I am not a gore person either). One could easily tell young children that Alice had been picking berries and overeating those (your fingertips really do turn interesting colors while picking as do lips, tongue, etc.). Your execution is great though and thanks for the information on the supplies and techniques used.

Those are great. You really nailed the costumes and the fit. I can see why your daughters look so excited. Congratulations

Have you entered your clothing in any competitions? They're quite cool and I think you'd have a shot. I know there are some sewing groups that do reuse competitions (the winner of a local competition made a fabulous wedding dress out of white t-shirts (a lot of loads of washing and bleaching, but it was great). Hope there is something in your area.

Meowari -- about throwing in extra inchies: I've learned that is actually common, many people send extras though they aren't required in any way (and some people have sent me eight great inchies and they way exceed my expectations). As well, it is often difficult to understand what your partner might like and so, sending extra is a way to let them find a set that suits her own preferences.

In terms of exact size, I'm one who is far from picky. Part of that is that I primarily work in fabric and woven fabric does not have, as the professionals say, dimensional stability. That means that as you work with it, it pulls out of shape. If you watch any of those reality fashion shows (e.g. Project Runway), you'll hear the judges periodically say, "That fabric is really difficult to work with." Typically, they are referring to the absence of dimensional stability in fabrics that are either slippery (e.g.satins), leading the threads to slide out of alignment, or very loosely woven (e.g. silks, particularly chiffons), leading the threads to pull in every direction. I don't think anyone can make fabric inchies that are all truly exact. I just hope that people use mine in a way that isn't wrecked by that problem.

Great work. Quite the transformation.

wow, maybe I'm just tired (graded too many tests), but when I first looked at Homerof2's hoop it looked psychadelic and then with the center line, it turned into  tiki psychadelic (like one of those tiki figure faces). So simple, but visually interesting. Very nice work.

Send by November 7

Hello again from cloudy and drizzly Ithaca, NY where the leaves have now mostly fallen. I've been thrilled with the inchies I've already received from goddessgarb and nilmerg and plan to frame some and make some into a tiny book. Those inchies were great, but I'll be excited by anything you send. I've found a great part of the swap has been my ability as a newbie to improve my technology for producing fabric inchies. So, if you question your abilities, I'm a particularly good person to pick. Please feel free to take my themes flexibly. I'll have fun deciding how to use what you send. Here are my themes:

1 serial (a set of inchies that together tell a story)
2 fruits
3 foreign languages
4 happy
5 flowers
6 celebrations (non-religious)
7 farm animals
8 hobbies

Thanks so much
