I've Been Sewing Doll Clothes...

Making pretty things for dolls is my favorite activity in all the world. Piper's dress isn't new, but Poppy's (the baby) is. My new camera is definitely good at taking closeup photos.

This dress was made for Ellery back in the fall, right before my camera quit. It's hand-embroidered and the bonnet and booties are hand-crocheted. The props are by Re-Ment.

This was the scene in upstate NY this morning. It's so pretty!

Small Toys

My camera was back. It worked for two days then died the same miserable death it had before. I gave up with the hassle of trying to keep a 5-year-old camera alive and just bought a new one. The new one is a Canon Powershot A1000IS and it's great--better than my old one, but don't tell my old one! I can finally blog some of the things I've been working on for a while.
This cupcake is part of a gift for my niece Alexis for Christmas. I made her smell like strawberry and she has glass seed beads for "sprinkles." The pattern is from Amigurumi World by Ana Paula Rimoli.


The hedgehog is a gift for my vision-impaired nephew, Noah. In order to add interest, I put a bell inside so he jingles when he's shaken. He's from a pattern from Tiny Yarn Animals.
Also for Noah, a bright-colored Scottie Dog toy with crinkly stuff inside. He's embroidered on corduroy with fleece on the back for extra texture. The pattern was from Sublime Stitching.
