Yes, I've still been sewing away!!! So many adorable little purses to be made!

Here are just a few of what's at my Etsy shop!
I'm working on a prototype for some smaller sized ones too, so that I can have an MDD, YoSD and Blythe/Pullip/Pure Neemo sized purse as well! XD

What HAVE I been up to?!

It's been a while since I've posted anything, and honestly, I'm not really sure why. I know I began this blog to document my teddy making progress... which is still progressing, slowwwwwwly... but I've also been making other crafts.

Most recently, BJD purses! They are small purses made to fit SD sized dolls, and are pictured here with my Dollfie Dream girls. (if you want to learn more about Dollfie Dream girls, go to )

So anyhow, here are the pics of a few purses, they've been turning out really cute!!!
They are all available on my etsy shop :)

If anyone sees one they're interested in, but it's been sold, ask about it! I have more fabric for most of them... so I can probably make another... unless it's the llama purse, that's all there is on that one, folks!

Q&A a day: 5 Year Journal

Off and on I've been hearing about this 5 year journal, and finally, I decided to check it out.

It can be obtained for around the price of $15 with shipping from Amazon, and so far I've been enjoying it. It ranges in questions from "Where do you want to travel next?" to "Where do you think your road is going?"... from the literal to the abstract.

It will be interesting to see how/if my answers change!

Modding Dolls

I recently got my hands on some very stained, sad little doll heads that I thought I would try modding on, since they were already a bit messed up to begin with XD... Here is the first victim, made to look like Kuroneko from an anime called My Little Sister Can't Possibly Be This Cute (or... something like that):

Etsy Treasury stuff... evidently I missed a few

I didn't realize this, but on Etsy now, on each items page, they tell you if its been in a treasury or not... and because of this, I found out I was in a few treasury lists I didn't even know about!!

Who knew?! XD

Another Doll Face and a better bear pictures

Alright... photo dump!

I painted this one for a friend :)

Here are some little bear lumps, although the small one looks like a hamster to me XD

And here's a better pic of Strawberry Bear and a little tan one I made with button joints and a brown sweater bear:

I've made an Easter Boooonnet...

Yeah, this was for a competition at

I did NOT make the green guy wearing the bonnet, he's a Cavey.. found at the website listed above.

I shouldn't be allowed near clay, LOL.

Yet another weirdo doll that I painted

This one... is named Myth... he's a Narwhal, LOL.

Don't ask... I have no idea, but I painted him as well.

Another goofy doll face XD

This is a model called a Dollfie Dream, more like an oversized anime styled Barbie... I did this faceup too... oh yes, it's a doll painting extravaganza!

Painting faces...

Bear making has been put on hold while there is an influx of new dollies!
I have been painting doll faces for friends... here's one that I did of a Puki Puki (smaaaaall... the face is only an inch tall!)

I also did one for another friend that I don't have a picture of yet... and I will be doing two or three more tonight! OYE.

They're fun though :)

Strawbearry Bear

Alrighty, so I drew up this new pattern, and oh boy is it going to need some work, lol :)

Here's my new little bear, a Strawbearry, if you will:

Now, I kept the arms and legs from the old pattern, because essentially I wasn't making the bear any taller... what I didn't count on was that I was making his little body a lot fatter... which means the arms just aren't long enough anymore, and the legs could stand to be a little bigger too.

The body... initially... looked silly as heck... but I modified the pattern slightly after I'd cut it out and sewn it... and now it's just the way I wanted it to be!

As for the head... well... yeah, I visualized THAT pattern all wrong... while I do like the head I ended up with... its pretty cute... it was not at ALL what I was seeing in my wee little it's back to the drawing board on that one too.

I *really* like the cute little printed cotton ear and feet bits... I'm wondering if I should add paw pads too?... I was also thinking of making one with a cotton body and mohair head and limbs... or something like that. I'm not sure... but I may just leave it at ear and paw pads.

This little bear will probably get a new ribbon too... this is just what I had in front of me, and he looked like he wanted *something* to wear.

It's a doll kinda day...

While I'm still cutting out and putting together my new pattern, let me fill the interlude with dolls.
This is my Volks Irvin in a Dollheart Steampunk outfit... I apologize if you can't stand Super Dollfie!

Drawing on Dresses...

A friend of mine makes little dresses for dolls... and we thought it might be fun if I sketched on a few of them... so here are the results... pretty simple, but I think they turned out kinda cute:

New bear and better pics of the pink panda

Well, I made this little grey bear (on the left) utilizing some techniques that some very nice and wonderful bear makers passed along... plus a different sewing technique that I think works better and is a lot more secure... and it never ceases to amaze me how one pattern can produce two very different little bears! The little grey guy is stuffed mostly with glass bead because I wanted him to be really squishy, and he has glass eyes, which, for the first time, thanks to a lot of help from my favorite bear makers, I feel are fastened in really securely... I'm stupidly proud of that, lol.

I remember cutting out this bear and thinking "Oh, I won't like him, because this is weird, spikey mohair and he just won't turn out cute," but... I really LOVE the way this mohair both looks and feels as a bear. Never judge a mohair un-beared!
