It’s that time of year again . . . when I’ve been very busy with crafting (sewing, knitting & crochet) but can’t show you what I’ve been up to as it’s mainly been for Christmas gifts. However, I have also found time to play with my dolls recently and did some dress-making. With a pattern by My Dandelion Dolls, I redrew the bodice part of a dress I’ve already made in Disney Animator size, and I made up a pretty blue floral dress for my Sylvia Natterer doll. While pattern pinning & cutting, I did also cut out pattern pieces for an Animator sized doll too . . . and ended up with two very pretty doll dresses.
If you want to see what these look like on dolls, you’ll have to click and hop over to my doll blog: Claire’s Collections.
Not only did I make these, but I also did lots of cutting of cardboard & paper, after having seen a very good tutorial by Ariadne’s Threads to make little doll-sized clothes hangers.
I printed the template out at 100% and also at 80% so made two different sizes of hangers. Then, I also played around making a few hangers just with wire – which is ever so quick and easy to do, but does use up a lot of wire.
The next thing I need (I can hear you say) is something to hang these from . . . but never fear . . . the husband has been busy and I’ll reveal all on ScrapHappy day!
