I started this because I just have been blessed with my first great granddaughter and I want to make dolls and doll accessories for her as heirlooms she can pass on after I am gone. I am looking foerward to working with you and learning from you. Aloha and peace from Maui! Pamela Apr 29

As promised in my previous sock bunny sewing tutorial , here comes the kawai-i version – the “Droopy Ear Sock Bunny”. This bunny can sits on its own, it is great as toy for kid and as well as for home decoration. Hope you like it and made some for your loved ones. Again, it is a single sock sewing, perfect if you have some don’t-know-what-to-do stray socks laying around that are still “new”. Or, you can make twins bunny with a new pair of socks. Since there have been quite some sock tutorials here, including the sock monkey , sock kitty and sock skeleton , I will have this tutorial a little simplified on the step photos.
Making these little fairy friends seriously changed my life. If it wasn't for them I might not have started crafted. I first made these over a year ago for our fantasy window at the shop. They have held a big place in my heart ever since. Now I'm going to show you all how to make one of your very own.
I created this fun doll suitcase for my oldest daughter and we love playing with it together. It has three interchangeable rooms, a secret clothes storage space under the floor, and it's portable! Would you like to make your own? I'll show you how! You will need all of the supplies listed above, as well as the notably missing iron, thread, scissors, and sewing machine.
General — By Shannon Schmid on February 13, 2012 at 6:25 am This Christmas my daughter inherited my childhood dollhouse! And if you are a long time reader, you have heard about this ongoing project to decorate the dollhouse, make furniture and pretend doll food for it!
Hopefully, you have enjoyed following the progress of the dollhouse made out of an old entertainment center. In case you are visiting my blog for the first time and want to see how the various pieces of the house were made, feel free to click on the embedded links that I have provided within the key words and it will take you to that specific blog entry in a new window. Happy Reading! 752 After seeing some amazing Entertaiment Center Upcycles on Pinterest via Better After Blog , I was inspired to try my own upcycle. Hard to believe how quickly the time has passed with this project.
When I saw these tiny crocheted animals on Etsy , I immediately thought, I need to call Kate . We share a love of teeny things, and I think one day we should get a timeshare cabin to display our miniature objects and trade off taking “cute overload” vacations. I know that sounds insane, but for those of you who love itty-bitty objects, how fun would it be to surround yourself with them for a few days straight? I can’t have them in my own home (my cat would eat them), but I wouldn’t mind escaping to see them every now and then. Anyway, back to the bitsy things in question: These adorable micro-animals are crocheted by an artist in Vietnam who sells them for about $28 to $100 a piece . I’m seriously tempted by the mountain goats, but the entire collection is worth checking out.
Looks like a pretty swank dollhouse, wouldn't you agree? You'll never guess what dollar store item it's made from. Nope, not that. Not that either.
This is a very simple Tutorial to make a Sock Owl. I’m using the leggings sock… the one that goes from your ankle up to your knees. See photos below from left to right.
Gosh… I am supposed to sew some thing for the Earth Month this April, but I can’t wait to sew these sock monkeys. My hands simply took over my head and see what I did after a few days and nights of sewing…. a house full of sock monkeys!!!! Do you love them? I have seen a lot of sock monkey photos hanging around friends’ photo albums in many photo sharing websites, so envy.
Let's face it, we don't all want a huge, pink plastic Dreamhouse gracing our playrooms. While some people thrive on the modern dollhouse hobby , for playtime, modern dollhouses are hard to find and expensive to boot, a combination I'd never let my kids near. Erin at Sutton Grace solved this dilema by making her kids their own mod doll house, and you can too. Complete with a vintage 1960's kitchen and furnishings, Erin created a dollhouse for her kids that would fit in with her modern home decor.
Hello friends:) Here is a tutorial I put together for these little dolls. I made mine for a party, but I think they would look cute hanging in a little girl's room too. I hope you enjoy making them as much as I did. Let me know if you have any questions, I'd be happy to help!
